Previously, there were reports of the possible artists to collab in his new album, and now BIGHIT announced that BTS RM’s solo album title is “Indigo.” As soon as the announcement was released, ARMY analyzed the title’s symbolism and meaning.

ARMY analyzing the symbolism and profound meaning of BTS RM’s “Indigo”
Realizing how thoughtful RM is, there must be something hidden behind the title of his solo album. Therefore, ARMY started analyzing the symbolism and meaning behind the music genius’ solo album title, “Indigo.”
1. Color between blue and violet
Previously, BTS RM mentioned a color that represents himself is blue. Meanwhile, the color of BTS is purple.
This makes the first theory that indigo is the color that represents both Kim Namjoon as a person and as BTS.
indigo is the colour between Purple and Blue… purple is the colour that represents BTS, blue is the colour that expresses Kim Namjoon pic.twitter.com/cmBRM2Xpz8— lex⁷ (@prodK0YA) November 10, 2022
joon has also described himself as blue before.. the colour directly between blue & purple.. pic.twitter.com/2AJH0LUgiR— 🌊 주니꾸기 are the maknaes of their lines⁷ 👨🚀💙💜 (@namkooksoup) November 10, 2022
SO SINCE NAMJOON SAID THAT BLUE DESCRIBES HIM BEST AND PURPLE IS FOR BTS AND INDIGO IS THE COLOR IN BETWEEN …… pic.twitter.com/RXwFNOnqLV— sevy (@onedayjm) November 10, 2022
2. The spiritual color
According to Color Psychology, indigo “has a strong association with the New Age and magic rituals, so it’s a color with a lot of spiritual meaning.”
Indigo can help someone develop a deeper awareness of what is happening. It also encourages unconscious processes, such as INTUITION. Moreover, the color also represents INTEGRITY and has a deep quality that transmits WISDOM and authority.
Meanwhile, according to the Spiritual Centre, indigo is a color with “one of devotion and sincerely.”
3. Namjoon’s color
Another ARMY pointed out that RM might play with words and Korean letters. Indigo in Korean is 남색, 남, which is like in Namjoon (남준 and color (색). Therefore, RM’s solo album “Indigo” might represent his own music color and personality.
INDIGO.— 👩🏾🚀🌊 Saяah⁷ ⟭⟬ 아포방포 ⟬⟭ (@__Samira7__) November 10, 2022
Correct me if I’m wrong but Indigo in Korean is 남색, 남 Like in Namjoon (남준) and 색 meaning color
So, Joon’s album Indigo could have the meaning of: Nam’s Color?! Showing his own aura/personality?!#Indigo #RM pic.twitter.com/xmzV1RTWXC
4. Newton’s color wheel – seven is perfect
Another more mindblowing theory is related to Sir Isaac Newton and Newton’s color wheel. Newton included indigo in his color wheel to have seven colors to combine them and create white.
Meanwhile, others also speculated that Newton added indigo to his color wheel to follow the age-old pattern of sevens: the seven days of the week, seven main planets in the solar system, and so on.
“Experts say that Newton only put indigo in the rainbow because he wanted seven colors”— lyssy⁷ (@btsbaragi_jk) November 10, 2022
“he believed there must be seven basic colours that come together to make white”
“The number seven had long been considered mystical, denoting perfection and completeness.”
The 7 again👀👀👀 pic.twitter.com/o85mQnVrYp
This theory is mind blowing pic.twitter.com/mFcsMUXp52— Shru⁷ 🌊 (@bangtinyboyys) November 10, 2022
5. Namjoon’s love for art
Not less intelligent and thoughtful than BTS leader, ARMY noticed that the “Indigo” album cover is cyanotype art. It’s not surprising that BTS RM loves arts; it might be his idea.
BASICALLY how this works is you coat your paper with some specific chemicals and then place what you want to be white/lighter colors on top of it. Then you leave it out in the sun or UV light. When you wash off the chemicals, wherever the light touched turns blue! pic.twitter.com/gw3oNbGZQf— army film club (@0613frames) November 10, 2022
