( Have you ever thought of including a Christmas card in each present you give out for the holidays? The idea, while not exactly foreign to our ears, is more commonly associated with the U.S. (Think the Kardashians' yearly Christmas cards). How does it work you ask? Well, dear Spotter, the idea is that you gather up the family, dress up in the finest of your finery, and take a couple (or a hundred) pics in a photo studio, after which you pick one out to send out to your friends and extended family as your way of saying "season's greetings". Now, we understand that renting a photo studio, hiring a set designer, and all that jazz may not be everyone's cup of tea, unless you're ARMY. Yup, we say that last bit because we spotted something BTS fans may want to try. Quezon City photo space Studio LAJ will be having a BTS-themed Christmas Photo Marathon just in time for the holidays!

Running from November 25 to December 1 and on December 21 to 29, Studio LAJ's Christmas Photo Marathon has a series of dates wherein people can book a self-shoot at the BTS-themed set, or go for the full experience with the partner photographer Ria Regino. A normal photo studio by day, a portion of their space has been transformed by Rocket Design Studio to imitate the K-Pop group's Life Goes On performance set from the popular U.S. evening show The Late Late Show with James Corden.

The studio owners, as well as Rocket Design Studio, and Ria Regino are all K-POP enthusiasts and in an exchange with, they explained that they chose to recreate the Christmas-themed Life Goes On performance set because "We all know we will see BTS as a group three years from now. Because of that, we want this holiday to be memorable for us ARMYs." ICYDK, Life Goes On is a song by BTS released in 2022 as a way to help people heal and feel comfort from being affected by the pandemic. ARMY, on the other hand, interprets the song as a sort of temporary farewell song by the band as the members are set to enter the mandated military service of the South Korean government.
