This isn’t the first time BTS has delved into the world of toys. Last year, the group launched their successful BT21 collection — a collaboration with Japanese-Korean company Line Friends. Each BTS member designed their own character for the merchandise and each character appears on everything from oversized stuffed animals to pajamas and slippers.
