Photo-editing app FaceApp now includes Black, Asian Indian and Caucasian filters

  • On Wednesday morning, the photo-editing app FaceApp released new photo filters that change the ethnic appearance of your face.

BTS mentioned in J BLACK’s (Dancer) V LIVE

[TRANS] Of course I know Bangtan. People say that BTS mentions me once in a while. But, we’ve never met in person before. I want to meet them. People say that they call me “hyung, hyung” while talking about me in a very friendly way~ 

NOTE: Hoseok mentioned J BLACK a few times in his Hope on the Street V LIVE broadcasts. Here is one video @ 36:23 where Hoseok mentions that he really respects and looks up to J BLACK as a dancer and thinks he’s really cool.
