Its undeniable the BTS fandom and their ARMY is truly legendary, and their music video for a new version of “Make It Right” featuring Lauv puts the relationship between artist and audience front and center in a sweet animated fantasy adventure.
The new variant of “Make It Right,” originally featured on April’s Billboard 200 chart-topping Map of the Soul: Persona EP as a B-side, arrived today (Oct. 18) featuring new English verses courtesy of Lauv fronting the ambient groove of the Ed Sheeran-writen alt-R&B track.
The song, which originally peaked at No. 95 on the Hot 100 singles chart, is a lyrical testament to the relationship between the South Korean septet and their dedicated ARMY, and the music video fittingly reflected this with its clips of BTS’ performing in front of their fans during their recent Love Yourself: Speak Yourself world tour. It is also interspersed with a sweet, romantic tale of a boy who is lost and then found by a girl, who becomes his companion and his protector.
After they find one another in a lonely world, she turns into a defensive cape while he sleeps. After he wakes up to find her gone, he goes on a lengthy journey on his own bolstered by her magical support, during which he remembers how she was by his side when others heckled them.
After he encounters a dragon and then successfully defeats his foe, a tear from his eye lands on the cape, and she returns to her mortal form by his side. A magical, fairy tale comes off as a metaphor for the interminable bond between BTS and their immensely supportive ARMY, who may not always physically be by the band members' sides but are always truly there with them, “Make It Right” is a celebration of the relationship between fans and the historic act.
Following its release, several hashtags and phrases related to “Make It Right” trended worldwide on Twitter, including the punny “Boys with Lauv,” a play on BTS’ Map of the Soul: Persona single “Boy With Luv” featuring Halsey, also out originally in April.

After releasing their romantic English-language single “Someone’s Someone” earlier this month, K-pop boy band Monsta X are back today (Oct. 16) with a music video that reflects the longing tone of the song.
The future-pop track’s music video features the seven members of the group serving up classically clean-cut boy band vibes as they sing about wanting "Someone's Someone" on a pier, under umbrellas in the rain, and in a dimly lit bar.
The music video for “Someone’s Someone” arrives just a few weeks before Monsta X returns with their upcoming "Follow" : Find You EP, which is set to drop at the end of this month. Though set to arrive on Oct. 28, the group recently announced that they would postpone some promotional events leading up to its release due to the untimely passing of K-pop star Sulli, and have yet to clarify their release calendar schedule.
Watch the music video for Monsta X’s “Someone’s Someone” below.
Felicity Huffman Turns Herself in to Begin Serving a 14-day Sentence for Her role in the College Admissions Bribery Scandal
Felicity Huffman turned herself in to begin serving a 14-day sentence for her role in the college admissions bribery scandal.
The actress arrived at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, CA Tuesday, where she'll be held for the next two weeks. Felicity got 14 days, a $30k fine, one year of supervised release and 250 hours of community service.
Prosecutors initially, privately demanded one year in jail, and then publicly reduced their recommendation to 4 months behind bars, but ultimately reduced it to 1 month. But, the judge scoffed at the prosecutors' request ... saying the case amounted to a bunch of nothing because the college admissions system was already broken.
What helped Felicity was that the judge said she had "near immediate acceptance of responsibility" for her crime, and she paid one of the smallest bribes. Felicity in court apologized in court ... adding, "I have inflicted more damage (on her daughter) than I could've ever imagined."
Felicity pled guilty to conspiracy charges for paying $15k to give her daughter a leg up on her college entrance exam. That means she's now a felon.

DMX decided to be proactive in his battle with addiction and checked himself back in rehab.
Sources close to DMX says one of X's kids are very sick and in and out of the hospital, and the stress of that coupled with the pressure of performing again made him feel tempted to use.
Sources say he knows a relapse could jeopardize his freedom, and wants to stay out of jail so he can support his family and friends.
DMX is on probation and gets tested randomly for drugs and alcohol.
DMX canceled a couple of shows this weekend after announcing he checked himself into a rehab facility, and was putting his family and his sobriety first.
He was released from prison in January after serving time for tax evasion.
Columbia Records has announced that Tyga has signed a multi-million dollar deal with the label. Columbia, which didn't provide a specific amount for the deal, made the announcement on Tuesday (Oct. 15). Tyga now joins a roster that includes acts like Lil Nas X, Polo G and countless more.
The multi-million dollar deal isn't the rapper's first time being signed to a major label.

Once he left the label after a dispute in 2015, he released music independently before the signing.
Zoe Kravitz is playing Catwoman in the new Batman movie.
Multiple outlets reported Monday that Zoe had landed the role after testing out some scenes last week opposite heartthrob Robert Pattinson -- who's donning the cowl next in Matt Reeves' "The Batman" ... which is hitting theaters in 2021.
The ironic thing about Zoe's casting here is that she told Nylon back in 2015 that she couldn't even get an audition for Nolan's last Batman flick, "The Dark Knight Rises," which she attributed to her race. That's not out of the clear blue sky either.
Zoe said she was basically blocked from even reading for a small role in the movie, allegedly being told that somebody had said they weren't "going urban" with the last installment.
Halle Berry and Eartha Kitt, both African-American, played Catwoman.
