“I could never save all of them on my own.”
Save Me (The Most Beautiful Moment in Life 0) is a graphic work story that’s takes a dive into the BTS’s BU (Bangtan Universe), which is a universe where BTS was never formed, even though all of them went to the same school together and they all became really close and good friends with one another. Yet, our story begins where all seven members are split from one another and haven’t talked to one another in quite a long time. You can find and read this comic for free HERE!
On a quick side tangent, if you’ve never seen the music videos I NEED U, RUN, Epilogue: Young Forever, then I definitely recommend watching and listening to these before or after reading this comic. The contents of this comic will come to life before your eyes in all three of these videos. So make sure you watch them in order. And personally, I think these are the most important videos you can watch before diving into this comic. And even though I have listed a lot of the trigger and content warnings above, please keep in mind that this story is very dark, has some graphic content, and can impact you mental health. So please practice self care and make sure you’re in the right head space when reading this webcomic!
Jin is our main star of this webcomic because he has the ability to travel back in time and hoping he can change everyone’s fate, set things right. Jin loses touch with all of his friends after he travels to go study abroad. Now he’s back and he can’t help thinking about all his friends and what happened to them, but that’s not the only thing. Jin keeps having this strange dream that keeps haunting him, with all of his dear friends at the bottom of the ocean. Now, he’s waking up everyday on April 11th, trying his best to remember what’s been reoccurring and trying to find the best way to save all six of his friends from the tragic fates that await them.
🌻 Seokjin (석진) – Wakes up, missing his six best friends and wondering how their lives have turned out, when he slowly finds out the terrible and tragic things that have been happening to all of them. He may have the power to go back in time, but he’s going to need all six of his friends to help keep one another safe.
🌻 Namjoon (남준) – Works at a gas station, but is being detained for assaulting a driver.
🌻 Yoongi (윤기) – Is trying to commit suicide after his mother died in a fire.
🌻 Hoseok (호석) – Abandoned by his his mother for a very long time now and is now hospitalized with a diagnosis of Munchausen syndrome.
🌻 Jimin (지민) – Also living at the same hospital with Hoseok, feeling abandoned by his family, and suffering from very serious depression and suicidal thoughts.
🌻 Taehyung (태형) – Is being jailed by the police after murdering his father, who was abusing him and his sister.
🌻 Jungkook (정국) – Looks like he’s attempting suicide by walking into traffic.
Everything about this webcomic is absolutely beautiful, heartbreaking, and something I didn’t know I needed in my life until I had finished reading. If you want art work that flows beautifully together and captures the eye, then this is comic you’re not going to want to miss! Not to mention, this story was crafted so well and even though I’m not a big fan of the “Groundhogs Day” storyline, I was fully invested in the storyline and what all seven boys were going through. This has probably been one of the most captivating graphic comics I have read all year (and I’ve read a good chunk of graphic novels this year)!
And can I just take a moment to say that this comic will shatter you to pieces in the best way?! This is such a hard webcomic to read in one of the best possibly ways. ARMY loves BTS with their hearts and souls, that reading these dark themed, alternative timelines is so challenging. But BTS is so aware of the platform, the power, and how much of a difference they can truly make, I think they’re doing incredible work by shining light onto really hard topics and bringing some strong awareness.
I think this was such a hard comic to read, not only because of the hard topics, but I can’t imagine a world without BTS. I don’t want to know it and I don’t even want to think of it. BTS is just a bright beacon of light in a world that’s on fire. They bring so many people together and spreading so much positive energy all over the world. Thinking about the many generations that are just discovering BTS and the message they’re spreading, it’s a lifetime of happiness and love that can’t be measured. BTS is a blessing to the world and I’m forever grateful that I get to live in the time where I can experience it all, watch it bloom, and make a difference to so many lives.
And the true heart of this story? Friendship, unconditional love, and what it means to find that and what you’d be willing to do to preserve that. The answer? It’s anything. BTS has such an unconditional love for one another and they value their friendship more than anything and that always shines through in everything they do. I have no doubt that they wouldn’t move mountains for one another. To find a friendship and a love like this is a once in a lifetime kind of deal and doing anything for that love and friendship…it’s everything!
Overall, I couldn’t have asked for a more breathtaking comic to come into my life. This webcomic means so, so much to me and has touched my heart in all the soft spots. I fell in love with BTS back in early spring, right after a bad car accident, and my co-worker had introduced them to me. I always loved K-Pop, but I have a special place in my heart for BTS and what they have done for me since their music came into my life. I’m so eternally grateful for the amazing content BTS (and BigHit) gives us, and this webcomic was just one of the many pieces that have touched a soft spot in my heart. This alternative universe story, it’s heart-wrenching and soul shattering, as it is. I will probably forever scream into the void my recommendation of this story especially to anyone who loves BTS or is a BTS fan. And as always, I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to be in the right head space while reading this story and to use caution because of the dark materials and all the content/trigger warnings.
“Each and every one of you makes me want to give it all up… And when I think I can’t possibly fall any lower, you pull me back on my feet.”
