Already a fashion icon, V of BTS is causing a stir among fans with his brand-new pink hair.

In recently released teaser photos for BTS’ upcoming repackaged album “Love Yourself: Answer,” V revealed his new bubblegum-pink hair that resembles an animation character.

For the group’s previous album “Love Yourself: Tear,” V had showcased deep chocolate brown hair, in line with the demure vibe of the album’s lead track “Fake Love.”

His brightly hued hair has sparked such online comments as “He looks like a fairy in the woods” and “His visual has reached its peak with pink hair.”

Many also showed strong reactions to a photo in which an expressionless V is seen in a transparent sphere with fantastical pink roses. Interpreting the concept, fans commented, “This concept is so pretty but it’s so sad. Like a goldfish in a tank” and “Living in a small artificial world and can never be truly free unless you break the glass.”

Pink hair can be bold and subversive at the same time, so let’s see how V’s new style plays out in BTS’ new album.

BTS is set to release “Love Yourself: Answer” on Aug. 24. A day after the release, the act will kick off its world tour “2018 BTS World Tour Love Yourself” at the Olympic Stadium in Seoul, and head stateside next month for the North American leg of the tour.
