Not just pictures, animations with the tagline "Stars of Tomorrow, UNIVERSTARS" also have their characteristics and characteristics. Through the BTS Twitter account, BT21 is also increasingly introducing the characters made by the members along with their respective hobbies and habits so that fans can get to know them better.
1. Tata, the little one with a V-made heart head.
Tata, the character created by Kim Taehyung, a.k.a V, can be the beginning of the formation of the idea of BT21. Tata is a creature from BT who is always curious about anything outside his planet. He is eager to become a superstar on earth after accidentally landing on the ground on his way.
Tata also started his journey to become a star with six other members in a group called BT21, who will become world stars. That's how BT21 began. As the creator, V, Tata is very confident and always calls himself handsome. His tiny body and head form a red heart symbol.
2. Mang is a creature in a horse mask made by J-hope.
"Call me a dancing machine," that's a message from Mang, who is very good at dancing. Mang is a creature who always wears a horse mask. Until now, no one knows what his natural face looks like.
He has a snub nose, but Mang is still happy because he has another advantage: dancing. It looks very mysterious; yes, this character was made by J-hope, one of the BTS rappers.
3. Koya, the sleeper made by RM
If Mang is called a dancing machine, it's different from the character made by the leader of BTS, RM. His name is Koya. He has been nicknamed the sleep machine because he likes to sleep, even though he can sleep anywhere. Still, his favorite pose is a pose where he can sleep comfortably.
Because he is often called a sleeper, Koya always reasoned, "Do you know? I'm not sleeping. I'm just thinking, again and again, I swear!" Even though it's Koya, who is a sleeper, LOL.
While sleeping, Koya once had a bad dream. When his ears fell out of his head, it was a bad dream!
4. RJ is Jin's white alpaca.
Unlike Tata from the planet BT, this cute Alpaca character made by Jin comes from Machu Picchu. RJ's body is white with always flushed cheeks. His favorite color is red. RJ even has a red scarf that he bought in his hometown.
RJ is famous for his hobby can chew anything. He will be pleased when eating. His other favorite item is a sleeping bag to sleep comfortably without getting cold.
5. Shooky is Suga's sweet biscuit.
According to other members, Suga also poured it into Shooky's character as the most fierce member. Shooky is a little biscuit who always says that he is charming. Still, he is an evil and antagonist character in BT21. Shooky befriends a character created by Jungkook. In the stickers provided, they are often together, but they are also very quarrelsome.
His life motto is "I'm not a cookie, I'm a delicious Shooky!!". Even though the slogan is like that, Shooky is very afraid of milk. He imagines being dipped in milk and then eaten when he sees milk. LOL

Every day that Cooky fulfills his dream is a 120-minute run, 400 push-ups, muscle checks, and 100-minute eyebrow drawing exercises. Just found out that drawing eyebrows can make big muscles. LOL
This Cooky likes to fantasize. He even often imagines that he can beat Shooky, the antagonist.
7. Chimmy is Jimin's narcissist.
So far, Jimin has often been narcissistic by uploading many selfie photos on BTS's Twitter account. That's why he made the character Chimmy with a very selfish nature. Chimmy is a creature who claims that he is the king of talent. He can do whatever he likes and wants.
With a bright yellow color and chubby cheeks, Chimmy is one of the favorite characters in BT21 because of her cuteness. The most beautiful part of Chimmy's body is her ears, which wildly when her ears are fluttering in the wind. To Chimmy, her long ears were like hair on an ordinary human.
