This Optical Illusion Of Jimin Turning Has The Internet Debating If He Is Facing Backward Or Forward

"When I focus on solely the feet I see spinning in both directions, focusing on the back I see something else. My eyes are going cross crossed."

Yesterday, BTS unveiled a teaser for an upcoming song called "Boy With Luv" featuring Halsey.

At the end of it, BTS line up and a snippet of the song plays.

And fans are confused about the direction that Jimin (second left) ends up facing at the end.

One fan created a slow motion version and said that focusing on his foot shows that Jimin does definitely turn around.

this is a slo mo, look at his foot movements he DID turn around but his face??? somethings not clicking

It looks like it's Jimin's feet that are causing the confusion.

When I focus on solely the feet I see spinning in both directions, focusing on the back I see something else. My eyes are going cross crossed

He's facing front lol Key point are the shoes #FrontOrBack [@BTS_twt] https://t.co/7vIDyuYXUx

People have compared this to the blue or gold dress.

this is worse than when the internet was trying to figure out if the dress was blue or gold #FrontorBack

Some fans are trying to figure out if this is a deliberate optical illusion with a hidden meaning.

[#BoyWithLuv]🍀 ”Time is an optical Illusion- never quite as solid or strong as we think it is”. - Jodi Picoult Do you see the illusion in the @BTS_twt teaser? What are your 👀 telling you? #FrontOrBack #작은것들을위한시 #MAP_OF_THE_SOUL_PERSONA

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.. #FrontOrBack

And other fans are just here for the chaos.
