Netizens are awed by BTS' lasting popularity


Netizens wonder how BTS can still attract new fans after 9 years since their debut. 

On February 13th, a post landed on a trending page of a popular online community forum for casting a question regarding BTS. Originally titled, "It's unreal how BTS can still attract new fans at their 9th year", the writer says "Usually, groups that old are likely to see a decrease in fandom size but they are still attracting new fans. Popularity is only fleeting but I believe their popularity will last for a long time."    

Many netizens agreed with the post and shared their thoughts in the comments. Some of the comments include: "I just want them to make music for a long time"

"I love this reply from a fan to RM's comment regarding BTS' popularity. RM said they know their popularity won't last forever so they are enjoying a roller coaster ride at the moment. This ARMY replied 'After you get off from the roller coaster let's go on a gentle merry-go-round together with ARMY'" 

"BTS gains more new fans on Melon than any other group unless that group is making their comeback."  

"They have been working really hard without taking a break."

"The boys are just meant to be a group and succeed together."

"Yeah, I agree their popularity would last, not forever, but surely for a long time."

What do you think?

I honestly remember their debut stage... That's how old I am 😀 I am so proud to have witnessed them achieving all these crazy and unthinkable records... I hope they stay together for a very very long time...

I remember watching BTS's AAA 2016 stage, when the camera cut to other idols their facial expressions were so indifferent towards BTS, And I remember Thinking, " If only they knew how Big BTS would become" The only thing that could change the perception they had of BTS permanently is them rising above them, And reaching heights no other Korean artists have ever reached globally, Part of the reason I believe BTS will big for a long time globally is because in Kpop age range of popularity is different from other music markets. Singer Sia was 38 when she had the Hit chandelier, BTS Army will be loyal to BTS for as long as time lets them, And if BTS still sells well they will be successful for a long time, I imagine part of the reason Big Hit gave BTS stock shares, was to influence BTS members to be apart of Big Hit for a long time, Haters won't like it But I truly think BTS will be popular for a long time.
