The first day of BTS’s long-awaited MAP OF THE SOUL ON:E online concert ended on a good note with ARMYs barely able to wrap their minds on what they just saw. From Jungkook’s “My Time” performance, Suga’s exposed forehead, and V serving visuals, it only makes sense that fans weren’t prepared at all for Jimin’s sexy performance of “Filter.”
Although it was something that fans had been waiting for since the release of the group’s MAP OF THE SOUL: 7 album, they weren’t ready even after Jimin seduced fans with his suave stage performance. Even choreographer Nicky Andersen, who created the dance for this song, was blown away by the official performance.
While changing from white, black, to red throughout the performance, he officially became the reason for numerous ARMYs’ deaths that night.

From “Lie”, “Serendipity” and “Filter”, Jimin is now a triple threat!

Also, we know that this part of the performance was probably replayed more times than necessary.

Fans also praised the message behind the mannequin that was seen in the performance and what it was meant to represent.
anyways let's talk about how androgynous filter is. jimin walking up to that female mannequin but instead of dancing with her like some cliché, he takes off the clothes and wears them as though he's becoming her. he's really the most anti-gender stereotypes and we love to see it

What nobody noticed and the message behind filter performance & metaphor is the mannequins don't represent any gender, it represents how the industry works and idols always need to follow the fashion trends to keep good image, that's why he's changing his outfits and using
