Fans of BTS are stepping up to create a safe airport culture for artists.
On October 24, BTS returned to South Korea after 52 days of 'Love Yourself' world tour and promotions overseas. ARMY - the fans of BTS - prepared a warm and safe welcoming for the boys with the 'Purple Campaign.'
The 'Purple Campaign' aims to fix the unsafe culture often seen when K-pop artists arrive at airports. In the past, fans have created dangerous situations by getting too close or crowding around an artist in the airport.
The members of the 'Purple Campaign' held up signs to inform fans about no physical contact, no close-ups, and no stalking of the artists. A banner also stated, "BTS and ARMY protect each other."
Netizens are applauding ARMY for taking the lead in creating a safe airport culture. Comments stated, "This is amazing. This culture needs to spread," "This is great," "Other fandoms need to learn."
