Twelve species showed up at the start line, a dragon, a snake, a rooster, a pig, a dog, a monkey, a sheep, a horse, a rabbit, a tiger, an ox, and a rat. As a reward, the Emperor named a year in the Zodiac after each one. The order were determined based on the place they finished the race.

The Birth of ‘Army’

In an interview on ‘The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, BTS was asked about the rumor of naming their fandom “Bells”.

Bts army we purple you
Jimmy Fallon : Is it true that instead of calling your fans Army, you were originally to call them "Bell"?

R.M. and other members togetherly agreed on the fact and R.M. further explained that the word "Bell" in Korean is "Bang Wool", which is similar to their band name "BANGTAN". 

However on future discussions, someone brought up about the 'bell thing' to which J-Hope greeted the fans as "Hi Bell". R.M. also tallked how during concerts their fans will bring bells and on asking them to make some noise they will ring the bells. J-Hope provided the background effect to R.M. words making sound of ring-a-ling-ling-a-ring. It will be hillarious to witness such a scene.

R.M. feels so relieved that they finally agreed on 'Army' and thus the birth of the purple Army took place.

The Colour Purple

At one of the concert fan meetings, back in 2016, ‘Kim Taehyung‘ our baby bear saw the color purple in the ‘Army bombs’ and related it to the last color of the rainbow. He coined the term “Borahae” translated as “I purple you” to express his and BTS’s long-lasting trust and love towards their Army. He explained how BTS will love and trust their Army forever just like the last color purple that completes the rainbow.

‘Borahae’ and /or ‘I purple you’ became a phenomenon since then and eventually the fandom’s color. In today’s world, BTS and their Army are always welcomed with the color purple which can be seen lit up in famous architects and buildings like ‘Burj Khalifa’ during their notable events.

Taehyungie later explained how he came up randomly with this thought and feels grateful to Army for giving it such significance.

The Brand Logo of BTS and the Army

The BTS logo features two trapezoids half open from the inside representing doors. It acts as a symbol that means the Army meeting BTS at the doors and becoming one togetherly. It also means ‘Beyond the Scene‘ according to the official explanations. The mission of this logo is to ‘protect youths from prejudice’ and encourage them to pursue their dreams instead of following the sheep herd and accepting the unappealing reality.
