BTS‘s new album is coming next month, and as always, fans have theories about what to expect.

Could it be the conclusion of the LOVE YOURSELF series, “BE YOURSELF”, or a code?

Thinking about this name and design..
B = 2nd letter of the alphabet
E = 5th letter of the alphabet
B + E = 7

BTS might have revealed the meaning behind BE long before they began working on the album, back in 2016. In an episode of their travel show Bon Voyage, RM talked about CEO Bang Si Hyuk‘s touching letter to the group, and their plans to create their a self-produced album someday.
There will come a day they don’t have to do this for us. That we’ll create our own album from beginning to end. When that happens, [Bang Si Hyuk] said that he’ll really be like a closer older brother.
Does that mean BE stands for “Beginning to End”? We won’t have to wait long to find out! BE drops on November 20, 2020.
Omg I realized after rewatching season 1 of BV, that why their upcoming album is titled B:E, it’s like RM said, talking about Bang Pd’s letter, one day they are going to make an album on their own from BEGINNING TO END. I cried seeing how far they’ve come since this ep😭 pic.twitter.com/QEtGwivh1L
