Smeraldo Books, the official Twitter account that started publishing stories and videos of the “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life” on Jan. 7, has surprised many fans and raised their expectations.

經紀公司認證的官方Twitter帳號「SMERALDO BOOKS」自本月7日開始,每天都PO出「花樣年華」時期的故事與片段,讓不少粉絲驚喜,猜測BTS回歸在即。

Smeraldo Books and Line Webtoon then announced on Jan. 17 that the first volume of “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life Pt.0,” out of 16 volumes, will be released in April across seven countries including South Korea, the U.S., Japan, China, Taiwan, Thailand, and Indonesia.

17日上午該社群與Line Webtoon就宣布《花樣年華 Pt.0 〈SAVE ME〉》漫畫正式連載,至4月期間總計16話,於韓國、美國、日本、中國、台灣、泰國及印尼等7個地區同步推出。

The story begins two years after the graduation of the seven members from high school. Yet, bandleader RM is sent to jail after a car accident, SUGA and Jungkook had just died, and J-hope is hospitalized.

該漫畫目前更新至第二集,就吸引破2萬人追蹤,故事開頭就以7人高中畢業2年後,隊長RM開車撞客人被關、SUGA跟柾國過世、J-hope重傷住院,並強調「相信時間倒流的話,就能糾正一切錯誤」。

The series was launched with an underlying message – “If time could be turned back, all mistakes could be corrected” – which echoes the storyline of the series that BTS started with the release of its first album in 2015. After reading the episodes, fans said: “I’ve finally started to understand it.”

巧妙呼應BTS於2015年開始推出的《花樣年華》系列故事,粉絲看完後更留言表示「終於有點理解了」。

“Using comics to explain and collect the stories of the album again is impressive,” another person said. “Hope it goes on to explain more about the plot!”

「用漫畫的形式把花樣年華做個整理解釋,真的佩服」。「希望漫畫能夠把花樣年華的劇情整理的清楚一點」。

What is worth mentioning is that BTS actually started gaining attention and popularity with “I NEED U” from The Most Beautiful Moment in Life” album.

值得一提的是,BTS正是以《花樣年華》一曲〈I NEED U〉打開知名度、漸漸走紅。
