Sometimes, BTS tries to hide brands to avoid promoting products they don’t officially endorse, or because they don’t want their favorite items to sell out. Sometimes it works, sometimes it fails, and other times the members don’t even bother trying!
1. Jin’s Balenciaga blunder
Jin recently posted photos of himself shopping. He tried to cover his bag’s Balenciaga brand name with an emoji, but it missed the mark!
Technology just wasn’t on his side.
2. Jungkook’s sold-out wine
Ever since the Downy disaster, Laundry Fairy Jungkook has been much more careful about sharing his favorite brands with ARMY.
He tried to hide a wine bottle’s label in his live broadcast, but fans still found out the name and, better yet, where to buy it. Within a day, they ordered so many bottles of Merlot March by Umani Ronchi Vigor Sangiovese that the wine completely sold out in Korea!
3. Jin’s iPad glitch
Hiding brands just isn’t Jin’s top skill. For this photo, he tried to cover the iPad name, but his hand placement was a little off…
4. The Vans brand
RM has gone the extra mile to hide the Vans brand name…
…by digitally painting his shoes.
Suga, on the other hand, couldn’t be bothered. He likes Vans and he doesn’t care who knows it!
5. LG has left the chat
LG brand ambassador J-Hope used stickers and emojis to hide his iPhone’s brand.
His brand hiding game was on point, but V‘s?
Not so much!
6. Chicken noodle soup with Sprite on the side
In a live broadcast, Jimin accidentally mentioned Sprite when Jin asked what he wanted to drink.
Jimin immediately slapped himself…
…and corrected his mistake.
Meanwhile, J-Hope held up this Sprite can in his live while saying, in English, “I have Sprite.”
