Days after dropping their new single, South Korean band BTS and veteran English band Coldplay released the official music video of My Universe. The septet has been praised time and again for his storytelling ability through his music videos and his recent releases are no less. With the strong backup of Coldplay, the video beautifully showcases how the power of love can transcend any boundaries or worlds.
