Army Valentine’s Day Party

London Meet Up

My name is June, and I want to share with you my story about going to a BTS Valentine’s Party in London.

I joined the “Love in the air for BTS” (Valentine’s day Party) held by @UKBTSARMATION on 13th Feb, 2019. I know it’s a little bit late to share this news with you all, but I really appreciated and enjoyed this event so much that I must tell you all about it!
The colour theme of the night is purple. I met a lot of people there. We are all living in London now but originated from different countries, i.e. Hong Kong, South Korea, Bulgaria, Malta, Philippines, UK, USA, and many other countries! 
It was amazing, people from different countries, with different upbringings and culture, sharing this beautiful thing. 
Our love for Bangtan Sonyeondan! 💜

Even the candy followed the colour theme!

Schedule

6:00 – 6:30PM Meet-up time. We all received the lovely treats & little gift well prepared by the organizers. Purple rose, message cards, BTS photo cards & sweets.

6:30 – 8:15PM Enjoyed the Korean BBQ meal in one of London’s restaurant. Ice-breaking time.

8:30 – 10:00PM KARAOKE TIME!!! Crazy night! None of us speak Korean but we are all singing BTS songs in the same language. (We were trying our best!)

The Experience

It was a wonderful and fruitful night! The cost of the ticket all went directly to Children and the Arts charity!
We finally donated a hundred pounds to the Charity. I am so glad that I could participate in such a meaningful event.  

Participant June’s Comment:

We would have never met each other at this party if weren’t ARMY. We are all connected by BTS. Someone even proposed a theory – Six degrees of separation. (The idea that all people are six or fewer social connections away from each other so that a chain of “a friend of a friend” statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps.) But I feel like I already know every Army just because we are connected by “BTS”.  

I am really proud of being an Army because I really think my life changed a lot after knowing BTS. I started to chase for my dream and do whatever I want to do (Of course in a good way). I am not afraid that I sometimes/may fail. If I fail, I know I will be encouraged by BTS’s songs. I don’t ask for the success like BTS achieved but I just want to be able to achieve something ever in my life! Even it is not something big.

Last but not least, I purple You, Army & BTS!  #Love myself

Participant Emma’s Comment:

Nervous – I am never nervous when I’m meeting new people. Let alone long lost sisters, who share the same love as me. Maybe because we all have our own way of loving and enjoying BTS and we all have our own experience with the boys – that makes the whole experience overwhelming (in the best way possible). I have to say a giant THANK YOU to my friend June for telling me about this and for yet again gifting me with a few hours of happiness.

I felt so welcomed from the beginning.

I felt like I have 5 years of shared history with these people… even though we just met. Everyone was smiling, all of their faces were bright and memorable. I will never get sick of the feeling of meeting intricate people thanks to BTS. There is a certain sensibility in every one of us and I think we somehow share it, due to the fact that we have the same source of happiness. You have to be a certain type of person to open up so quickly. I received nothing else but understanding and big smiles.

We all got to talks about the things that we love the most, but most importantly we got to spend time doing it – together. When someone talks about something that brings so much sense and warmth into their lives – they themselves become more alive and present. I don’t want to sound too emotional, however maybe it’s because of the nature of my character, meeting new people has always been my way of keeping myself engaged. I love talking and I’m sure I talked a lot, but what I really went for was to listen. I wanted to hear how they developed their intimate bond with BTS. These 7 boys give a new thing to love about them every day and they always have our back. They really are the gift that keeps on giving.

Lastly I would like to say that I’ve always referred to ARMY as brothers and sister. I understand how new friendships and interactions can be a bit too much, but nothing can change the fact that I will always be there for every single one of you reading this and I will offer my attention and care to you. I would like to thank the girls, who organized the whole event, from the bottom of my heart. The few hours we spend together have already given me so much comfort and safety, due to the very fact that they do things because they love them and it showed.

Until the next time! Fighting! <3

Group Selca with the Valentine-ARMY !
