They have been so present in 2017; I'm surprised how my views of them and their fandom have changed so drastically in these past months, they are just so hardworking and inspiring....I'm definitely looking forward to supporting them by getting my first physical kpop album on their next comeback.

I'm just curious. What was your view on them before? And thanks for supporting them.

Yutaschin nguyenwinss Wednesday, July 12, 2017

I didn't think badly of them, but the amount of support they were getting seemed baffling because, at least back then, they didn't seem like anything new or outstanding to me. When I asked ARMY or anyone to tell me why they liked them, most (at the time) would tell me that they were funny and they were great dancers, but that still wasn't enough for me to "get the hype". It wasn't until youtube autoplayed the HYYH album that I realized I was listening to BTS and actually enjoying every second of it. Once realizing they actually had really good music, I decided to give it a go and try to get to know them and i was surprised by how invested I got in their personal stories. As for ARMY, I used to think they were really loud and outspoken to a point where you couldn't leave a comment anywhere without them somehow making it about BTS; rather than annoying, it was overwhelming to me lmao My views of them changed during the whole BBMA voting process because I saw a lot of unnecessary rudeness directed towards them, yet they somehow remained calm and focused on the goal at hand. Seeing them act that way was just incredible, I had never seen a fandom so united.... I don't think I qualify as an ARMY yet, but I really want BTS to keep succeeding and climbing higher. I hope I can properly help them rise higher and get more recognition from this point on.

Album of the year? Hope so.

Definently they'll get Album of the year in MMA, there's no questions abt that. Hopefully they'll get Artist of the Year in MAMA again. Fingers crossed.

some people are triggered by this info lol 👀

whatever101 Saturday, July 8, 2017

AND we should be surprised because????? I mean its not like BIGBANG or TVXQ have ever done this and count their blessings EXO has yet to release an album in Japan unless you count their EXODUS Korean ONLY album that ranked on Oricon's Year End Charts, just saying since you know, they didnt have to shove that info in everyone's face to show off

LveKimTae whatever101 Saturday, July 8, 2017

Why are u even here if u dislike bts so much? U can just choose to ignore these achievement articles 😒

BTS, my boys, it's Time to conquer the world

Ewwwwwmysuc69 Friday, July 7, 2017

I fail to see how 11th place should be reported? That's not very good. Besides they can't even make original music now? Gotta remake a LEGEND group song for attention. Desperation don't fit allkpop or BTS

JungkookxYonghwa Ewwwwwmysuc69 Friday, July 7, 2017

Lmao please educate yourself

LveKimTae Ewwwwwmysuc69 Friday, July 7, 2017

11th is very good considering they're the only Korean artist to be ranked on top 20. And Seo Taiji himself allowed bts to remake his song. Please research ur facts first.

BangtanieAR Ewwwwwmysuc69 Saturday, July 8, 2017

Lmaooo you tried! :D Selective reading will not help you in life, my friend.

bangeryun94 JungkookxYonghwa Saturday, July 8, 2017

Let's make a pact here and now and spread the news to other ARMY that when comments like the OP appear, we move on. Trolls and akp staff posing as trolls have a field day on BTS articles. We've got to learn to ignore this bilge. I've lost my temper for the last time over this blatent douchebaggery trolling. They'll lose their minds when their insults are met with silence.
