With BTS’ global popularity, it’s no surprise that many brands chose BTS as their brand ambassador. Brands such as Chilsung Cider, Bodyfriend, Baskin Robbins, and the popular clothing brand FILA, have been releasing CFs of the band recently, making them trend on Twitter more so than usual.

Since 7th August, FILA Korea has been releasing BTS concept photos for their 2020 Fall Collection, with the hashtag #GOBEYOND.

It’s normal to see at least one BTS-related keyword trending on Twitter on a regular day. However, it was not until a chain of BTS CFs were broadcasted by JTBC that BTS-related keywords flooded Twitter and trended among Korean ARMYs.

As Korean fans tuned in to JTBC minutes before 11PM KST to watch Episode 1 of In The Soop, they caught a chain of 6 BTS advertisements.  Of course, they took to Twitter to share their BTS-filled experience.

This resulted in a surge of tweets with terms such as “휠라 광고” (FILA CF), “애들 광고” (the boys’ CF), “방탄 광고” (BTS’ CF), and “제이티비씨” (JTBC) in Korea.
