Code 130613 is a cyberpunk-themed zine featuring members of BTS.


Code 130613 is a BTS fanzine dedicated to celebrating the boys in a cyberpunk world that is futuristic and dystopian.[1]

The project launched on March 30, 2021, opening interest checks on APril 1, 2021 to April 21, 2021. Applications for a finance mod and art mod opened on April 13, 2021 and closed on April 27, 2021[2]. Contributors could apply from May 5, 2021 to June 5, 2021 [3].

Preorders opened on November 15, 2021 with the following pricing tiers[4]:

  • Glitch ($15 USD) - Digital Zine
  • Ultranova ($25 USD) - Digital Zine, Heroes & Villains Comic and Stories Digest PDF, Behind the Scenes PDF

An early bird exclusive offer of two buttons was given to the first 50 physical orders[5]. Stretch goals included washi tape at 50 orders, an enamel pin at 100 orders, and a mousepad at 150 orders, all of which would be added to physical orders, free of charge[6].

A giveaway was run from December 8 to December 15, 2021, with a full physical bundle as a first prize, and a full digital bundle as a second prize. The day after the giveaway closed, winners were announced to be Twitter users momoxana for first prize and bluessided for second prize [7].

Preorders closed on December 29, 2021. As thanks for fans support, the project's team announced on February 13, 2022 that the acrylic charm would be updated to have a star clasp and the enamel pin would be manufactured at a larger size [8].

The team expected to ship out orders around April to May, but an update on May 16, 2022 explained that the manufacturer of the enamel pins had temporarily shut down due to COVID regulations, resulting in significant delays[9]. Shipments for physical orders began on June 19, 2022, and the digital zine was sent out on July 17, 2022.

Leftover sales ran from to October 10, 2022.
