    The group, who are house ambassadors for Louis Vuitton, were featured in a 10-minute video highlighting Virgil Abloh's latest collection as part of the fashion house's Men's Fall-Winter 2021 program in Seoul on July 7.

    Filmed in Art Bunker B39, an art space just outside of Seoul, the video features BTS dressed to the nines in the brand's pristine blazers, suits, and hats. As they powerfully strut through the uniquely designed space, a blimp floats above their heads with the word "hope" written across its side.

    According to the video's description online, the collection aims to "redefine how our minds identify archetypical wardrobes, which are tied to societal presumptions" with its sleek style and design. "The collection re-appropriates the normal through extreme elevation," it states. "For the first time, House Ambassadors and pop icons BTS partake in the show, adding an extra dimension to the presentation."

    No one is doing it like Taeyeon! Her latest single is a dreamy, disco-infused romp that will make you want to dance and teach you about the importance of self-care all at the same time.

    The song's message is a joyful reminder that we all need to take time to prioritize our mental and physical health in between our hectic schedules. In the track's lyrics, Taeyeon describes her version of a perfect self-care day, which involves waking up late on the weekend, eating cheesecake, going for a walk, observing flowers, and generally doing whatever her heart desires. "When the weekend comes, I can do whatever I want," she sings.

    It's also the day that she makes a point to "ignore the world's stories" and not allow herself to worry about her current troubles. Instead, she'll do the things she loves most without worrying about work or any other obligations life throws her way. "I don't want to hesitate doing what I like anymore," she adds. "It's OK to do it when the weekend comes." So make sure to take a little inspiration from Taeyeon this weekend and do something you enjoy too!

    This week also saw the release of SF9's "Tear Drop," BXK's "Excuse Me," Day6 (Even of Day)'s "Right Through Me," Super Junior Kyuhyun's "Together," Kevin of the Boyz' "Rubber Boots," (G)I-dle Soyeon's "Beam Beam," Onewe's "Aurora," and BTS's "Permission to Dance," so be sure to check those out as well! 🎶

It will undoubtedly hold a special place in the hearts of every Victon fan, as it is likely to be one of Seung Woo's final performances before he enlists in the South Korean military on July 26.

    Speaking on the VenewLive podcast, Seung Woo revealed that he decided to hold another concert as a way to "say goodbye to [his] twenties" and make "good memories" with his fans once more. "And since my second album release, I want to provide a place for fans to enjoy [my first album] Fame and [second album] Fade at once," he said.

    The event will be held both in person and online, so you'll be able to tune in and listen to Seung Woo's flawless voice no matter where you are in the world. In addition to performances from both of his solo albums, Fame and Fade, Seung Woo also revealed that the concert will include "some fun ments" and recommended that fans watch it with their friends.
