Recently, netizens have been talking on online communities about a fangirl who achieved the best dream any fangirl can wish for - working for their beloved idol or even participating in a project of the idol group.
Artist Darr Choi has been famous in the online community as she has over 111,000 followers on Twitter as well as over 171,000 followers on Instagram. Her works are mainly fanart of the global idol group BTS. She gives her own artistic take on each member as she draws them to be characters of a comic book but with strikingly close resemblance of the members.
The global fans weren't the only ones to take notice of her work; Netmarble, the game company in charge of developing the new BTS mobile game 'BTS Universe Story' also took much interest in Darr Choi's work. She was contacted by the company to draw the cover photo for the game. As revealed by the artist herself via Twitter, she stated that she is thankful to all her fans who have recognized her work as soon as the artwork was released.
The artist revealed that she was given the opportunity to participate in drawing for the game company but only participated in drawing the poster image.
However, other BTS fans were still envious of the artist after confirming that Darr Choi had drawn the artwork. They were also happy for her that she was able to contribute to a project of her favorite idol group.
