There’s nothing the internet loves more than a good visual illusion combined with some mildly interesting conspiracy theories.
Maybe that’s not entirely true, but K-pop Twitter was certainly hyped up earlier this morning trying to uncover the mystery behind a new teaser video from BTS. In the short clip for their upcoming song “Boys With Luv” featuring Halsey, a short part of the single plays while the boys simultaneously take a turn.
Fans were stumped trying to figure out which direction Jimin (second from the left) faces at the end of the video.
The confusion seems to occur when fans focused in on the feet. Does he end up facing to the front or to the back? Is it just the lighting messing with our minds? What is going on here?
As they attempt to dissect the trailer for any hidden meanings, as fans do, Twitter has also been left questioning whether this optical illusion could be intentional. Could this possibly play a role in the song’s narrative? Is Jimin, in fact, the aforementioned “Boy With Luv”?
OKAY time to end this 😒😒
1) Jimin is facing the front!!
2) BH purposefully darkened blurred out his face to give the illusion of him turning around to NOT MAKE IT SO OBVIOUS! That’s the plot of this comeback with jimins story hellooo..#FrontOrBackpic.twitter.com/6bVlxr6e8L

It seems like we’ve got another dress debate on our hands, folks. Even if fans can’t conclusively decide on #FrontorBack, K-pop Twitter has put their stanvestigative hats on and are ready to crack this case wide open. Or at least wait until the full MV drops, whichever comes first.
