1. [+557, -52] How far will the positive influence of BTS reach? It's so amazing. Everything about them is world class!

2. [+515, -48] They have such a proper understanding of history, so proud!!!!!

3. [+499, -37] History is something that even a country's own people could not know no matter how much it's taught... It's amazing that foreigners are even looking up our country's history. Give credit where it's due.

4. [+44, -6] This is what RM was talking about with the power of culture

5. [+36, -5] As someone from Gwangju, I'm really grateful ㅜㅜ there are so many old farts trying to rile up communist mobs lately...

6. [+32, -5] As exected of Armies 👍

7. [+27, -2] No wonder Ilbe has been attacking them lately..

8. [+24, -5] There is such a big diversity of Armies now, BTS and their fans cannot be touched. They are the future voters of this country, and the government should be careful.

9. [+20, -3] BTS needs to be exempted from the army ㅜㅜ I saw foreigners singing along to all their Korean songs

10. [+20, -1] So great to see a group spread their influence in such positive ways

  1. BTS

I'd say if you like K-pop in general, you should study a little about their culture and their history. I love to talk to Koreans and ask them about their customs and history.
