For BTS ARMY, the year has begun with a bang. After Jimin’s collaboration “Vibe” with Big Bang’s Taeyang, the vocalist has now been announced as the new global ambassador for the brand Dior. According to several Korean news outlets, the star might attend Paris Fashion Week. The surprises don’t end there, as his fellow band member J-Hope is expected to be present at the event as well, as part of Louis Vuitton’s Fall-Winter Fashion Show.
Fans are in quite the celebratory mood as Suga has also become the brand ambassador for Valentino. “All these fashion brands just waiting for the boys to sign up to them. Coz we just got dior x jimin yesterday, hobi going to lv fashion week, and today we got valentino x yoongi,” one fan wrote. Others imagined through hilarious memes how J-Hope and Jimin would react on seeing each other at the Paris Fashion Week. “Manifesting hobi jimin tae and YOON in the Paris fashion week,” one fan wrote. Many excited fans called them the ‘kings of fashion’.
Last year, V had attended the Celine Show in Paris with Park Bo-gum and Blackpink’s Lisa. Fans are hoping that he would also surprise them at Paris Fashion Week. “jimin, hobi and taehyung bumping into each other at paris fashion week like they didn’t just see each other the night before,” added another fan.
