BTS‘s comeback trailer has inspired a new viral challenge that’s bursting with positivity.
On March 27, BTS dropped the trailer for their upcoming album, MAP OF THE SOUL: Persona. In it, RM raps about finding his identity, personal growth, and self-love.
He acknowledges his past mistakes while embracing his imperfections and taking pride in the person he has become.
“Persona’s” wholesome, inspirational messages have inspired fans to create their own “Persona Challenge”. The challenge involves sharing throwback photos and stories about their own personal growth.

in 2013, years prior to that, and some after, i was dependent on my friends & family, and couldn't tell the difference between the real and fake ppl in my life. now, i have grown independent and have been able to drop all the fake and toxic ppl.#personachallenge 🖤 pic.twitter.com/2Qm8SwGnwV

They are also using this opportunity to thank BTS for helping them along the way.
I have grown so much yet I have yet to bloom. BTS has been the water that has helped me grow throughout the years. I’ve never met them nor have I ever been to a concert but it feels as though I’ve known them forever. They have helped me love myself💜 #PersonaChallenge @BTS_twt pic.twitter.com/zyRRqmHlRR
