Japanese ARMY break the 'Purple Campaign' rule at the airport to show support for BTS

(Bangtan Boys) BTS
BTS' ARMY in Japan showed up at the airport to show their undying support for BTS.

On November 10th, the fans greeted BTS at the Haneda Airport as the group arrived for their Japanese dome tour. Despite the fan base's collective 'Purple Campaign' rule, which discourages fans from showing up at airports to ensure the artists' safety, the Japanese ARMY had made an exception in light of recent issues involving Jimin's shirt and the Japanese media channels eventually withdrawing their invitations from BTS.

Although the rule had been broken, Japanese fans still kept their distance and let the boys pass through peacefully at the airport. As seen in the fantaken video below, member RM is seen putting his hand on his chest, as fans speculate to be a sign of his unwavering gratitude despite diplomatic issues.

See personally this is how I think it should be. I think the artists love seeing their fans at the airport etc etc but in a calm orderly way like the above tweet. The fans were there and supporting but the boys passed by with no shoving, pushing or injuries. I love to see this! Well done ARMY!! <3

Well, let's just say that we shall give these fans a pass since they were still respectful to BTS although they broke that rule being given the fact that Jimin has been embroiled in a controversy this week due to an atomic bomb t-shirt that he wore last year. So yeah, they're good right here.

Its overwhelming to see such support for the boys. Great job J-Armys. This means a lot. The controversy has much more to it than that is being projected. Its pure Politics, yet many people out there are refusing to understand this. Jimin's shirt is just a reference point to start the controversy.

Finally a positive article about this whole out of control circus. Poor boys, thankfully fans are greater then shows. Can’t have shows without fans, and BTS are the big players bringing them in. Japan will ease up soon

The one should apologize was the designer who use the atomic bomb at the t-shirt.. I mean, celebrate it, but you didnt have to bring up the bombing at Hiroshima and Nagasaki just for whatever you mean.. Its victory but also a tragedy.. So a little bit more sensitive when you materialize something..


And we know how niceee Jimin as a personn.. Why blame himm..

Honestly, the designer doesnt need to apologize. You dont like the shirt, dont buy it.

This whole shirt issue from a yr ago is really just an excuse for Japan to act hostile, when they are really just pissed about the recent court cases

This show to the blind japanese haters(that hate korea and china) and the all life BTS haters that the japanese fans don't care about misleading things like the shirt.

I do not why this became a problem, if foreign artist trying promote their music in certain country they should show respect to that country despite of their past wrongdoings, also their are more Korean artists releasing Japanese and Korean albums and performing in japan and then Japanese artist performing in Korea or releasing their album and main reason for that is because Japanese music industry is second largest after U.S despite K-POP growing.

What is the purple campaign? I know it is something that ARMYs started for BTS at the airports. I tried looking this up, but it gave me a different thing. So the purple campaign is like a sort of rule that says ARMY is strongly discouraged from showing up at airports? Or is it you can show up, but don't mob, scream, stalk, etc. to BTS?

Ehm i thought the 'Purple Campaign' rule, just meant not invading their private space/stalking/touching, NOT telling fans not to welcome them at the airport? :/

He did something stupid and he should own it up. Hating him is unnecessary but so is supporting his decision to wear that T-shirt
