"This is amazing. BTS, for real."
"I wonder how much they are worth...wow I guess they really are doing well."
"Oh no, when I was young I strongly believed that I would marry Min Yoongi, but I guess I can't..."
"Taylor Swift is like an unbeatable wall...For so many years she is at the top, but since she's a solo artist she takes it all on her own."
"They're higher than Justin Bieber???"
"But BTS distributes it among seven members. If they were solo, they would take it all on their own. But they still probably receive a lot. Please order me just one chicken."
"Wow, they are basically like walking conglomerates."
"Crazy, they are on another level."
