K-pop boyband BTS scores own Twitter emoji and (accidental) love from Justin Timberlake
Justin Timberlake might not know who BTS are yet, but he might soon.
The seven-member K-pop boyband launched the first ever K-pop emoji on Twitter on Thursday as part of a contest for their fans.
The emoji features a bulletproof vest with the band’s initials “BTS” on it. The band’s Korean name translates to “Bulletproof Boy Scouts.”
While the emoji trended along with the Korean hashtag #방탄소년단 on Twitter, little did anyone expect Hollywood celebrities to pick up on it too.
