BTS Jimin inspired by Greek mythology for 'ID: Chaos' photo folio, fans swoon over 'tailor of chaos' tattoo
SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA: Park Jimin of BTS has previously spoken about his desire to expose his raw and darker side under the lens. He sang about the duality of light and darkness within him in his solo song 'Filter' from 'Map of the Soul 7'. This creative idea of the K-pop star was brought under the light once again by Big Hit Music while curating the 'ID: Chaos' section of the upcoming photo folio 'Me, Myself, & Jimin'. A short mood sampler was released on the official YouTube channel of BangtanTv on September 25, 2022. The snippet showcases a series of hidden clues that takes the fans closer to Jimin's concept of 'chaos'.
The biggest K-pop group BTS has officially announced their hiatus to focus on their solo careers. While Suga and V make a buzz about their upcoming album debuts, Jimin is not far off. The K-pop sensation gave an insight into what he wants to portray from the art of music on Weverse, “I just think I can show something a little more raw about me. That might include a more mature side, too, but what I’m really interested in is showing something closer to my real, personal rawness directly in a format like music or music videos. By doing so, I think maybe I can show something I never have before”

The significance of 'ID: Chaos' photo folio
Big Hit Music released a short teaser called 'ID: Chaos' that highlights a section from Jimin's upcoming photo folio. The video is soaked in monotone colors while Park Jimin talks about rawness and chaos as the material of his folio concept. The almost two minute-long clip also shows off a neck tattoo on the BTS vocalist which reads, 'tailor of chaos'. As the recording progresses, an Apollo statue and temporary tattoos with Artemis' name come to view.
In the video, Jimin talks about wearing white instead of black which could be because Artemis is a lunar goddess in Greek mythology. Jimin has embraced both light and darkness in the video. Moreover, the two Greek gods Artemis and Apollo represent masculinity and feminity. This could signify the vocalist tackling his dual sensuality. The mood sampler finds the work of 'Kintsugi' (the Japanese art of mending things) on the Greek statues as well. This way the singer accepts the brokenness within himself.
the cracked statues in Jimin's folio concept remind me of "Kintsugi" or "Kintsukuroi", the Japanese art of mending broken things with gold/silver lacquer. it's an incredibly beautiful form of art that's all about appreciating imperfections 🥺 pic.twitter.com/Ep6xLkV7Hw— Liz⁷☼☽ ᶜᵃʳᵃᵐᵉˡᶦᶻᵉᵈ ˢᵘᵍᵃ (@carame_liz_ed) September 25, 2022
apollo and artemis are often associated with feminity/masculinity, night/day, light/dark and that's something jimin loves exploring in his performances and photoshoots omg— goddess of the moon⁷ (@jiminsfangs) September 25, 2022
like "be your light/be your night" in promise and the tattoos in latin for filter than were used both in the masculine and feminine forms it's such a perfect choice for him— goddess of the moon⁷ (@jiminsfangs) September 25, 2022
When will the photo folio 'Me, Myself, & Jimin' be released?
Weverse describes the photobook as “based on Jimin’s own ideas, unveils different moods Jimin creates from the same costumes, the strength Jimin has discovered in himself, the meaning of light in his confusing consciousness, the moment Jimin’s inner self and persona finally met and his chaotic and finally, an immature journey to finding the true “me”.
The sale of the upcoming Special 8 photo folio will begin on September 29. Plus, the merch will be available from 11 am (KST), October 13, and October 20, 10 pm PST. The preview images can be found on the official page of Weverse.
