Most of you K-pop fans must have seen petite and cute little characters in your free sticker option in messaging apps like Facebook or LINE.

If you fall for BT21’s animated charms, you will be lead to the world of BTS in a different manner.
Let us go through the entire concept of BT21 here.
Line Friends have featured characters that are based on stickers from Line, a messaging app. It was released by Line Corporation in 2011. These characters are used in various projects like theme parks, hotels, cafés, games, and animations. Kang Byeongmok, or also known as Mogi, created these original characters in 2011.
The Line Friends characters are James, Moon, Brown, Cony, Sally Jessica, Boss, Edward, Leonard, Choco (Brown’s younger sister), and Pangyo (Choco’s boyfriend).
The first presentation from Line Friends Creators, BT21 is a project that was formed to create a new line of characters for the Line Friends series. The boys from BTS were chosen as the first artists for this project. Additionally, the project also wanted to show the connection between Line Friends and BTS in terms of popularity around the world.
BT21 contains eight special characters made by BTS. These characters were designed and based on the sketches and original ideas by the boy band. The entire designing aspect can be seen on the official YouTube channel of BT21.
The name, BT21, is a combination of BTS (name of the boy band) and 21st Century, which implies that the name of this collaboration should signify the message that BTS and 21st Century would live on for the next 100 years. BT21 was launched officially in 2017.
