i dont know if he is picking the concept himself, or its just Hybe, showing what he does behind the scenes

I think those weird videos are for photobooks they are selling
JK video had a very dark vibe too

Yeah, they're showing their dark side, or more like what they're willing to do, and did, the concept is choosen by the elites not even hyve, the whole we choose our clothes and accessories is a big a$$ bullshit lie, they're put their to promote several agendas, so make them choose the concepts will never be a choice, not even in their wildset dreams.
Also, the concepts are sometimes what the elites are waiting from a celebrity to offer.

I watched J!min's photoshoot concept thing and I am so disturbed by it.

First the whole black leather suit is just way too much. I think we all know what it means.

The other part with him lying on the floor and what not, he looks heavily drugged and depressed. I just think it's bizarre for them to do something like that, and think it's okay to market it. This isn't like an actual artist who is making a piece of art or a series of artworks to cope with personal problems. They are selling sex, addiction and depression. Talk about inhuman.

Those videos are creepy. Are they really going for a RV concept?

there's nothing heartbreaking in that story :

Lol, BTS didn't start with nothing.

J!n was wealthy.
J!min's family and Namjoon's family could afford to send them to some high class schools.
The rest of the guys had normal lives, except for YG who had a rough start. But even with YG, his parents somehow could afford to send him to a high school in Seoul. BTS themselves have even said they saw decent success as soon as they debuted, especially in 2014.

I heard from a former ex-worker of a kpop company that the company often lies about the pre-debut of their idols, including whether they were poor, to give an appearance that they came "from the bottom", when they had good economic support. I think he also talked about BTS, and that it served to give the public an image of "Humility".

yes, they also lied about bighit being a very poor company
they were not on the big 3 but Bang Pedo worked for JYP and he already had a lot of conections

and they also filmed variety shows like "american hustle life" that was filmed in the USA with a bunch of famous rappers. so they invested a lot of money on it. Even before BT5 became big

Rm and Jn went overseas as foreign exchange students. Jm was into dance and Kendo. Only Sg and Tae were poor in the way you think of poverty. The rest were middle class to rich.

Their early clothing was poor but the production value of their music and the show they made weren't. Compare them to SHINe3. They had nicer clothes but the places they were filmed in weren't expensive. Btees was taking trips to Thailand, Dubai, Chicago, Los Angeles, and other places as nugus. Shine3's show pairing them with noonas was different. Taemin was walking around places that looked less like Seoul and more like a third world country. Contrast that to fourth gen groups and the shows they film.

They weaponized poverty to make fans take their underdog image and eat it up. Handmade clothes. Kidnapped by black people. Oh no. Fed chicken breasts and no rice while their surrounded by men who were missing no meals? They wanted to make sure sasaengs didn't get too close
oppar doesn't escape.
I'm glad the fans have dropped this underdog image, but it still comes back up like a broken game of hungry hungry hippos.
