We see how often BTS-related hashtags are on top of “Worldwide trending tweets” on Twitter. Some examples being: “#HappyJinDay“, “#5thFlowerPathWithBTS”, “#ThankYouJimin, “#WIOM and many more. I think that us, fans, work this hard because these boys have an amazing way of touching peoples lives and souls, therefore, making ARMY’s all over the world wanting to give back in any way possible.
BTS and us ARMY’s really are bullet-proof and have indeed come a long way. With a rough start filled with accusations of plagiarism, hate, threats and much more. The boys kept going and as a result, are now a global phenomenon!
Congratulations to BTS and all of us and let’s keep fighting together!
