BTS Jimin’s Self-Made Merch Sells Out and Causes the Weverse Shop to Crash

On Jan. 18, Jimin became the fifth BTS member to release the merch he made, following Jin, RM, V and Suga. The group has been releasing new merchandise personally designed by the members under its Artist-Made Collection and the goods have become must-have items among ARMYs.

BTS Jimin’s self-made merch includes a purple hoodie that was priced at 99,000 won (approximately $83) and a set of hoop earrings that cost 75,000 won (nearly $63). Both items were made available in several online stores including the Weverse Shop.

At exactly 11 a.m. KST, the time when Jimin’s earrings and hoodie were officially released, the Weverse Shop server instantly crashed as a massive number of ARMYs across the globe attempted to access the app simultaneously to purchase the items.

The crashing of the Weverse Shop had not happened with the previous releases of BTS members’ self-designed merch. Even the BTS Japan official shop crashed due to heavy access.

In addition to this, Jimin’s purple hoodie and earrings had reportedly sold out within seconds of its release. However, some fans are claiming that the goods were sold out in just one second, while others said that they were out of stock even before they went on sale.

With the high demand for BTS Jimin’s self-made merch, the group’s agency HYBE announced that it is “positively considering” releasing more stock in the future. They added that the decision will be revealed soon at Weverse Shop.

On the day Jimin’s earrings and hoodie were released, the BTS member dominated Twitter as the items were sold out at an unbelievable speed. Several keywords such as “SOLD OUT,” “Paypal,” “jimins,” “DESIGNED BY JIMIN, “Hoodie,” “Weverse,” “Hybe,” “LOVE YOU JIMIN” as well as hashtags like #BY_JIMIN,” “#BTSJIMIN,” “#ParkJimin” and more trended worldwide and in South Korea.
