And today it is the third year, since Taehyun coined the phrase. Yes, he might have just made that up amidst a live concert. But his expression genuinely has a deeper meaning. The wave of the colour purple has served the band well and so their devoted fans. The music band continues to break all the records with the release of their third concert film, Bring the Soul: The Movie. It was released reportedly in 110 countries and is considered the band’s most comprehensive film release ever.
