Do you know the “BT21” characters, designed by BTS members themselves?
These eight characters were created by BTS in collaboration with “Line Friends” back in 2017. They were revealed in December 2017 and have been adored and loved by many, especially by BTS fans, A.R.M.Y. Some people even have a whole collection of items related to these characters.
And now they’ve been made into Bluetooth speakers and figures!
KOYA, CHIMMY, COOKY, and VAN have been transformed into Bluetooth speakers; and RJ, SHOOKY, MANG, and TATA into little figurines. They are sold in sets, one Bluetooth speaker and one figure, and are currently on pre-order sale at MakerStar.
The Bluetooth speakers and figures of BT21 will be a special gift to people all over the world who love these BT21 characters, a popular character brand from Line Friends.
