BTS' Jin had fans wondering what his encore look would be like today (29 November), after sporting a "flower look" on Day 1 of their PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE in LA concerts.

This time, BTS' resident Worldwide Handsome had his hair tied up in pigtails, and channelled his inner Doll persona while his bandmates sang the 'Red Light, Green Light' song from Squid Game.

After the concert, Jin took to Weverse to share a photo of him imitating the pose of the Doll with the caption "Hibiscus Jin has bloomed" in reference to the lyrics of the song from the hit Netflix series.
Following Jin, V also decided to bring some Squid Game on stage by dressing up as one of the gamekeepers as part of 1 December's encore stage.

Squid Game was released last September, a 10-year project by Korean filmmaker Hwang Dong-hyuk. Since its debut, Squid Game has become a global pop culture phenomenon spawning countless Halloween costumes, soundtrack remixes, memes, and even real-life Squid Games.

Netflix revealed that it was their "biggest show at launch" surpassing 100 million views when it premiered. League of Legends' animated series Arcane has since taken the top spot.
Meanwhile, BTS will be taking a quick break before returning to the live stage for Days 3 and 4 of their PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE in LA concert series. The two-time GRAMMY-nominated act will be performing on 1 and 2 December at the sold-out SoFi Stadium. The final day (3 December at 12:30 PM KST, 10:30 AM JKT, 11:30 AM PHT/SGT) will be livestreamed globally via VenewLive. Find out more here.
