Even though K-pop supergroup BTS is currently on break as most members complete their military obligations, the band is teasing that a mysterious new project is on the way, driving the BTS' collective fandom known as the BTS ARMY into a frenzy.

Chaos first broke out when BTS posted a cryptic video Tuesday on X featuring a slideshow of photos showing two members exploring the outdoors together. In a snap, they ride on a shared motorcycle; in others, the pair goes snorkeling.

At the end, the symbols “?!” flash onscreen. “2024. 08. 08,” the band’s official account wrote in the caption. “Coming Soon.”

The tweet sparked excitement and confusion among fans, with one fan commenting, “WHAT. DOES. THIS. MEAN?” Others, however, are confident they know exactly what the teaser video is about. Based on the theme of the photos featured in the footage, many ARMY members are staking their bets on a travel documentary centered around Jungkook and Jimin, which they previously hinted at last year.

“FINALLYYYYYY A JIKOOK TRAVEL SHOW !?!?!?!?!??!?” one person wrote, referencing the pair’s friendship by conjoining their names, a practice affectionately used throughout K-pop fandoms.

“This is going to be my everything, my comfort show, my entire home,” added another fan. 

The travel series theories may be supported by a November episode of Suchwita, the YouTube talk show hosted by BTS’ Suga. At one point, Jungkook appeared as a guest and revealed that he and Jimin had once discussed filming their joint adventures across the globe.

“On a shoot with Jimin ages ago, he said it might be fun to do a travel variety show with me, and I agreed,” Jungkook told Suga in the video. “But it didn’t end up going anywhere after that. Then suddenly, they set up a shoot.”

In the meantime, BTS is currently enlisted in the South Korean military — minus Jin, who completed his mandated 18-month service in June. Several members have unveiled solo projects in recent months to keep giving to fans during the band’s time away, with Jimin announcing his new album, Muse, in June.
