When J Hope appeared in the Louis Vuitton menswear show in January 2023, fans began to speculate that something big was about to happen. And they were not wrong. 

What? 

The French luxury brand Louis Vuitton named the K-pop star and member of the boy band BTS as its new brand ambassador on Friday (February 24). 

The Maison is delighted to welcome the South Korean artist who brings his unique charm and style to this exciting new chapter.

In April 2021, BTS were collectively named a brand ambassador for LV, but the deal soon expired. With the group now taking a hiatus, its members are signing off on individual deals with fashion brands and are also preparing for mandatory army service.
