Let’s find out what BTS members have written for ARMY in their 10th anniversary BTS FESTA 2023 letters, with the English translation so that international ARMY can understand.
BTS Writes Handwritten Letters for FESTA 2023 – with English Translation
Although he is now serving in the military, he is the one whose letter is revealed to ARMY for this year’s FESTA 2023.

ARMY, you’re doing well, right?
About now, I’m probably on the ball with military disciplines!
I’ll probably be in a state where I’m incredibly nervous!
Sort of in a “scheduled text message” vibe…
to comfort your hearts, you all need to don’t have Hobi
I’m saying my greetings through this letter, even though it’s a little short, on this special day!!
The year of 2023, 613!! I wonder how you all are feeling right now..!!
I was always with you, but now, having to spend 613 without a couple of people, deep down, I feel like I am a little bit worried and lonely.
Always.. like we have, today, as of this moment, let’s remember just us and remind ourselves of the memories we’ve had all this time and spend it happily~♥♥
I feel like that’s how we can spend our 613 entirely like us~!! hahahaha (infinite sincerity)
I feel like there will be members in full swing with their solo activities, so I ask you all to give them big cheers and love!!!
Whatever day it is, surely I sincerely thank you and love you~!!
j-hope released ARSON Rock Version for BTS FESTA 2023
Not only writing a handwritten letter, j-hope also released a rock version of Arson from his solo album Jack in the Box.
The leader of BTS, Kim Namjoon (RM) also shared a heartfelt letter not only in one online platform, but two. He took Weverse community and Instagram to share his feelings about hitting the big 10. Alongside the picture of his letters, the spoiler king is sure to share some nostalgic photos of the group and his adorable selfie to keep the BTS FESTA 2023 vibe.
They said that 10 years can change mountains or rivers, and it’s true. There were countless ups and downs. There were many dawns that I don’t even remember. I’m a different person at 30, from who I was at 20. Now, I find my past self even more unfamiliar.
It’s such a special thing, to feel as if you have been entranced by words. ‘Til a noun has become a pronoun. ‘Til bulletproof becomes BTS, army becomes ARMY… There were plenty of wind, and rain, and love. Perhaps, we have built our own world, one that no one can understand.
Thanks to ARMY and the many people who have helped us, we were able to experience something special, that we won’t be able to experience again. Looking back, even as I immerse myself in recollection, I’ve become accustomed to breaking through many doors without rest. Even now, I’m still trying to guess at our 2nd chapter. It feels like we will be able to become anything. The worries I had when I was 17, and 20, as well as the double-sidedness of things, all still stand.
As I slowly become an adult, I’ve learnt that there are many things in the world that cannot be explained with words or writings. And, that things that seem like they will never change, will do so some day. Also, that the birth of just a single “name,” needs the love and strength of so, so many people.
I’m still rather inadequate. Perhaps even in the future, things will continue to feel unfamiliar, insecure, even painful. But I will try to improve. Together, but separate, far, but near. I hope that I will have you all, and that you all will also have me. The members, the staff, family, and friends! And ARMY! You all have worked so hard.
Let’s live well together, in the next 10 years too. In this damned world! I love you.
On June 13 around the same time as RM shared the letter, Jimin updated on Weverse community with a heartfelt letter. He penned down a few thoughts about BTS 10th anniversary, saying,
Dear ARMYs, this is Jimin Haha
Wow, it’s our 10th anniversary
How long has it been.
I can’t believe that I’m 29 when I first met you at 19.
I’m an adult now.
My mind is still similar to when I was 19, but my body is…
I just miss you, guys!
In the past, I was wondering how it would be when it would be 10 or 20 years for us.
I don’t think there’s much difference LOL.
Actually, it’s even better.
What should I say? I think I’m a little emotional because I was watching Jin Hyung on Suchwita just now but, it’s just great.
Rather than feeling sad, should I say that I’m happy because I feel like I’m getting more and more things with you?
It might sound weird to say this
“It’s been a year!”@!#@ It’s been 2 years!!@@ㅉㄻㄻㅇㅇㄴㅁ”ㅎ@ㅉ@” LOL
It’s just like, “Wow… so we’re here now.”
Wait, no wait,
No, it’s not this. I can’t express it in words.
To tell you the truth, I was a little depressed at first because it seemed like the time we spent together stopped since last year, but it wasn’t like that.
We’re just thinking about each other in our own places, thinking about what we can do right now, and continuing to try and do things together.
So I’m totally happy these days.
Of course, I miss you more and more.
I wonder how you’ve been doing and what concerns you have.
I’m so curious, but I’m sorry I couldn’t come often.
But I think about you continuously.
I think I said that a lot.
8 years is both a long and short time… 9 years is both….
But to have the 10th year approaching feels different.
Something that no one can ignore, so that you can understand and share more, something solid
Yes, I got this feeling.
I’m so happy.
That’s why I want to keep this relationship and work hard.
ARMY, I’ve told you this a few times,
It’s not something that anyone can do to cheer, love, and give strength for no reason.
So I can feel how happy we are.
You who make me feel all these things should also feel full of happiness and be loved.
ARMY who I always thank and love
Let’s be happy for a long time Haha
Still on the anniversary date, June 13 at 6.33 PM KST, BTS oldest member updated on Weverse community, assuring ARMY that he will be with ARMY next year. Although he missed the BTS FESTA 2023 celebration, he will surely celebrate the festive BTS FESTA in 2024 with ARMY.
Hello, I’m Jin
Thanks to our ARMYs, we’re celebrating our 10th anniversary
There’s a saying that mountains and rivers change in 10 years. It’s amazing that the love between BTS and ARMY doesn’t change
I also want to give you some contents for the 10th anniversary.. I’m just sad that I can’t be with you. I should have filmed more contents before I joined the army.. I don’t know how to express my apologiesㅠㅠ
As far as I know, the remaining members are working hard on the 10th anniversary contents. With 365 days left in the military and a year left, I’ll go to the company and see you through Weverse Live instead of going home as soon as I’m discharged.
Of course, it’s early so I can stay home and come back, but I won’t make any plans and I’ll be with you on the 11th anniversary
I’m so happy to say this at least haha
Thank you so much for being with us for our 10th anniversary and I hope you stay with us until our bodies can perform on stage
ARMY heart BTS
ARMY ♡ BTS
Being different is what V specializes. While other members penned their BTS FESTA 2023 letters on Weverse community or Twitter or Instagram post, V chose to use his Instagram story. He shared a video which was surely entertaining and drew laughter.
On 10th anniversary of BTS debut on Jun 13,, V expressed his heartfelt gratitude to fans along with 17 short clips showing himself & BTS members in light-hearted moments, on IG Story.— KTH HYPE (@kthhype_ttg8) June 14, 2023
In particular, V, like a master of situational dramas, drew laughter when he wore overcoat &… https://t.co/AEgJ58ntHX pic.twitter.com/KdnrrR8KA9
Finally, one of the most-awaited BTS FESTA 2023 letters has come! It’s time for the golden maknae to send love to ARMY out there. Jungkook shared how much fun he had in the past 10 years, and he is ready for another 10 years ahead.
I see that everyone wrote the letter in a touching way…
I was thinking about how to write it, so I am going to write it like myself, LOL.
I’ve definitely gone through a lot of things with ARMY and sometimes it feels like it’s been too long, but in a blink of an eye, 10 years have passed??
I can’t remember clearly every details.
I think there were a lot of good and happy times and a lot of sad and crying, but I don’t remember them very clearly…
Of course, I’m sure if we were to go over each incident, I would know them all.
I think because I always focus on the present, it’s become a habit of mine to quickly forget the past… My hyungs remember everything… But if someone brings it up, I’ll know it (memories)!!!
The memory is just on a brief vacation! All of the memories are in this Jungkook’s heart, LOL.
And the fact that 10 years have passed in a blink of an eye means that it was that much fun for me! You know, if it’s not fun or happy, time goes by really slowly!
Thanks to ARMY, it’s already been 10 years!!!
Thank you so much for being with us for 10 years!!!
In the future, let’s continue to walk closely, loving each other in good health for ARMY and BTS. 🙂
I can’t imagine life without ARMY ㅜㅜ.
But I just realized while writing that my personality has changed a lot. Hmm.
Anyway, the conclusion, 10 years is nothing. 20 years, here we come!
