What does BTS mean now? Years ago, the popular K-Pop band added a new meaning to its acronym. BTS did not leave behind the meaning of Bangtan Sonyeondan or Bulletproof Boy Scouts, they added a new reference to their name and the goals of the band, what is behind Behind The Scenes and what is the message that idols want to convey?

With one more meaning, the agency that represents the Permission To Dance performers released the logo of the doors that are a nod to the union of BTS and ARMY, also in the way that they complement and support each other.
So Beyond The Scene is just an acronym added to BTS for the English version of their name, this without losing the band’s message:
They (BTS) move forward, chasing their dreams instead of getting stuck in reality. The design shows ARMY meeting them thanks to the doors.
