Four years ago, in BTS Muster, BTS V coined the phrase “I Purple You” or “borahae.” When we think about the meaning of “I Purple You,” we might guess that BTS V just made it up. However, there is a deep meaning to the phrase.
“Purple is the last color of the rainbow, so it means I will trust and love you for a very long time. In this way, the words “I purple you” have come to represent the intense love and appreciation that ARMYs and BTS feel for each other.”BTS V
