For their 11th anniversary, BTS has wrapped the HYBE building with their iconic phrase APOBANGPO, a term that means ARMY forever and Bangtan forever. This creative and heartfelt gesture, which will be displayed from June 11 to June 30, was conceived by none other than the group's leader, RM. 

BTS’ RM suggested APOBANGPO on HYBE building for FESTA celebrations

In a heartwarming gesture that underscores the unbreakable bond between BTS and their fans, the HYBE building in Yongsan, Seoul, has been wrapped with the iconic phrase APOBANGPO in celebration of the group's 11th debut anniversary.

The phrase, coined by Jungkook, means ARMY Forever, Bangtan Forever and perfectly encapsulates the enduring love between BTS and their dedicated fanbase, ARMY. This creative and heartfelt display, which will be up from June 11 to June 30, was the brainchild of BTS' leader, RM.

The idea emerged in 2023 during the planning for the FESTA celebrations, an annual event cherished by both BTS and ARMY to commemorate the group's debut on June 13. In a FESTA video, RM suggested adorning the HYBE headquarters with the phrase, earning enthusiastic approval from his fellow members.

This year's FESTA is particularly special as it coincides with Jin's return from mandatory military service on June 12, adding another layer of excitement to the celebrations. The wrapping of the HYBE building serves as a vibrant tribute to BTS' incredible journey and their status as global superstars.
