This article focuses on the era Wings.
For the studio album, see Wings, for the songs, see "Interlude: Wings" and "Outro: Wings".

Wings Era is the third Korean-language and Japanese-language era of BTS' career. It started on September 4, 2016 with "BEGIN" short film starring Jung Kook and officially finished on February 20, 2017 with "Not Today" music video.

Meanwhile in Japanese-language, the era started on January 6, 2017 with the second and third compilation albums THE BEST OF 防弾少年団 -KOREA EDITION- and THE BEST OF 防弾少年団 -JAPAN EDITION- and finished on May 10, 2017 with their seventh Japanese single "血、汗、涙 (Blood Sweat & Tears)".

All content released in this era of albums and short films has the concept of "temptation and conflict".[1] This era is the third part of the Chapter 1: Reflection of Youth, the third part of the BTS Chronicle[1] and is connected to the previous era and two following eras through the original story BTS Universe.




All the Korean-language and Japanese-language content released in this era have the concept of "temptation and conflict"[1] as both have the same songs only in different languages.


  • WINGS: The first BTS album to feature solo songs from every member also deals with the conflicts we face while growing up and the questions that accompany first-time temptations.[2]
  • YOU NEVER WALK ALONE: A warm message of gentle comfort and hope from the group to the youth of today,[2] and is a supplementary story to the previous album.[4]
