Is BTS Dropping An Album In August 2020? This Smeraldo Books Fan Theory Is Convincing

BTS’ Japanese album will arrive on July 15, but fans think the group will make another comeback just weeks later. This fan theory BTS is dropping an album in August 2020 will blow your mind because it has to do with BTS’ fictional Bangtan Universe, which connects many of their music videos and songs together. For the past few years, ARMYs have been getting information about this alternative universe from the Twitter account @Smeraldo_Books, and on July 10, it posted another update, teasing something is definitely coming this summer.

The account shared a blog entry ARMYs have already seen before called "A fateful encounter with Smeraldo, the prologue story." In case you’re unfamiliar with the term "Smeraldo," it is a fictional flower seen in many of BTS’ music videos that are part of the Bangtan Universe. Ahead of BTS’ Love Yourself: Her and Love Yourself: Answer comebacks in September 2017 and August 2018 respectfully, @Smeraldo_Books posted this blog exactly on July 10 both times to hint new music was on the horizon by revealing BTS was preparing to open a flower shop. The month it teased as the shop’s opening date has historically been whenever BTS made their comeback, so because the blog mentioned late August this time, fans think BTS will be releasing a new album next month.

In BTS’ fictional universe, they mention the "City of Smeraldo," and fans said in Italian, it translates to "the Emerald City of Oz," aka, The Wizard of Oz. Interestingly enough, when BTS celebrated their seven-year debut anniversary on June 13, they had an "FM" show, during which they read a snippet from The Wizard of Oz. Fans initially didn’t anything of it, but with this new update from @Smeraldo_Books, they now think it can’t be a coincidence.

If it’s true BTS is planning on releasing new music in August, fans think they even have the exact date when that will be. Since The Wizard of Oz released on Aug. 25, 1939, and BTS kicked off their Love Yourself world tour on Aug. 25, 2018, they think August 25 is when BTS will make their next comeback.

Previously, fans believed BTS was going to drop another album this fall. In a May 11 livestream, Jin asked the members if their next album will arrive in October, and Suga seemingly nodded in response. Watch the moment below.

Now, fans are convinced BTS’ comeback date will be earlier. Judging by all the evidence they’ve found to back up their new theory, ARMYs’ may really be on to something here.
