BTS has such immense love for their fans, ARMYs, that their members have oftentimes mentioned their desire to be with ARMYs forever.
Their love for ARMYs made BTS invent their own way of expressing their sincere gratitude and care for their fans in the form of the message “I purple you”.
According to V, the message of “I purple you” means “I will trust and love you for a long time”.
taehyung said purple is the last colour of the rainbows so he made up the meaning of it which "i will trust and love you for a long time". he even said to hold their hands and follow them.. bts literally give one colour into a deep meaning 🥺pic.twitter.com/ofLiHrUiAe
