10 Things You NEED to Know About BTS Before You Call Yourself a True Fan
It’s no secret that Korean band BTS A.K.A. Beyond the Scene has been stealing hearts and gaining major attention ever since it was formed in 2013. The seven-member unit is the biggest K-pop group, like, EVER. Remember when One Direction was at the height of fame? Think that, multiplied by 1000. Rap Monster, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, V, Jimin and Jungkook are the hottest dudes in their genre, with screaming fans and sold-out concerts all over the world. They have been traveling basically the entire year on their third world tour, and while it’s been go go go for quite some time now, it doesn’t look like they have any plans to slow down.
BTS has some of the most passionate and vocal fans around, so much so that they are known as the A.R.M.Y. What does that stand for, you may ask? Adorable Representative M.C. for Youth, of course. And they’re JUST getting started in the United States. The group was up for Choice International Artist at the 2017 Teen Choice Awards, going against EXO, MONSTA X, SEVENTEEN, CD9 and CNCO. The South Korean lads won (of course), but fans were not happy. You see, the show promoted BTS’ nomination, but then only briefly mentioned their success without as much as showing a picture of the boys. WTF is up with that?!
But anyway, a win is a win, and with another victory under their belt, we know it’s only a matter of time before they take over the ENTIRE world. Their songs are infectious, their dance moves are stellar and their friendship is ahhh-dorable.
