The @Vegas Twitter account also changed its name to “Borahaegas.” The word is a portmanteau of “Vegas” and “borahae,” a combination of the Korean words of “violet” and “I love you” that the band coined.

You asked, we listened. #Borahaegas is a go!

Get ready to see purple lights and messages around Vegas starting at 8pm PST tonight!#BTS_THE_CITY_LasVegas #PTD_THE_CITY_LV
