BTS’ ‘Proof’, ‘Door’ Concept Photos – Here are the Meanings of the Two Versions

Prior to the release of BTS’ “Door” concept photos, the group revealed the two sets of concept images for the “Proof” version. And, at first glance, anyone could tell that the two seem to be opposite of each other.

In “Proof,” the BTS members sport dark, leather outfits and give off the “bulletproof” grit that helped them get through all difficulties that got in their way.

According to the Korean media outlet OSEN, BTS’ “Proof” and “Door” concept photos represent two different eras of the boy group’s lives. “Door” alludes to the time the septet paved its own way, transcending all barriers, and opening a new door to a new era.

OSEN said, “The concept photos of the ‘Door’ version contain the moment when BTS, who walked their own path and made a record that will remain in history, opens a new door.”

“Proof” suggests the personal and professional obstacles BTS has faced along the way, including radial prejudice.

While the two versions have different meanings, both of them convey a message of hope just from different perspectives: rookie BTS and 2022 BTS. “Proof” could be seen as the group’s hope that they would succeed as idols, while “Door” is a more positive and big hope for the future now that most of their dreams have come true.
