Fans began to speculate about the new release and how it will fit in with the HYYH storyline, which heavily focused on the beautiful moments of one’s youth.
so 花樣年華 or 화양연화 (HYYH) that BTS used in the albums 'The Most Beautiful Moment In Life' means the "best time of life" or "the beautiful flowery time in life" or "the golden years of life" literally referring to Youth.. but it's Yet to Come 🥺#YetToCome #BTS_Proof

Despite BTS’s best efforts to persuade ARMY that it’s time to move on from the iconic era, it seems HYYH will continue.
