New behind the scenes footage has finally unmasked a mystery that BTS fans have been racking their brains over for 7 months.
Back in June 2018, BTS dropped the extended music video for their smash hit “FAKE LOVE”. At the end of it, Jungkook puts on the same mask that his cloaked members are wearing.
The masks, also worn for several live shows, aren’t fastened with strings, elastics, or any other visible aids.

…but ARMYs now finally know how the trick works. Backstage at 2018 MAMA, Jin revealed a hidden mouthpiece inside his mask that he clamps onto to hold the mask in place. This allows the members to put the masks on and take them off with ease.
