    My friend is an ARMY and kept going on about how BTS isn't kpop and she hates all other kpop groups.

    So I told her BTS is kpop because they sing in Korean.

    She said she knew that BTS is kpop, she isn't that dumb and that ARMYs know that BTS is kpop but choose not to call BTS kpop. This is because other fandoms had said that BTS wasn't kpop first in order to exclude them in some way (I wonder why :rolleyes:). So, ARMYs decided to take it literally and say that BTS isn't kpop.

    It's more of an inside joke than anything.

    I feel kind of dumb for calling them out now.

    it's not because someone uses korean in their song that it's kpop, korean music is a lot wider that that, then for everything else you said just no offence but wth, just wth, from beginning to the end i can't find any type of logic behind all of that

    Obviously I know that Kpop is more than just singing in Korean. But I was trying to tell her that BTS is kpop and the fact that they sing in Korean is a reason that they are kpop. They're not kpop just because they sing in Korean - I was just trying to prove a point.

    Also, it seems pretty logical to me. They were being excluded (again, I wonder why:rolleyes:) so they decided to exclude themselves. Seems quite petty to me but it's their choice.

    This is literally what we’ve been explaining on this website since the whole bts isn’t Kpop thing blew out but I see some of y’all need to be told things irl or you become a bunch of Mariah Careys and Jared :rolleyes:

    Edit: anyway I’m glad you saw the light

    Anyway if you are wondering the reason they were excluded it began when they started “promoting” in the us so they started saying that bts should just stay in America and become an American boy group and tht they aren’t Kpop anymore because they refused to stay local

    I'm sorry I don't use twitter or instagram or other popular social media other than Allkpop.

    A lot of what I say is based on what I hear here. And there's a bunch of BTS haters on this site so I'm going to here a lot of shit about BTS. Normally, I ignore them but I never got an explanation to why ARMYs don't call BTS kpop so I naturally assumed that it was real..

    It’s ok I can copy paste this explanation On Whatever thread that shits on bts when I find out but since here the culture is to shit on bts on the daily, I can’t explain it to everyone

    well let's get this straight i am not an army and people really think that i'm a hater of BTS
    in this forum

    but let me explain what the right and the wrong here

    "BTS is not a Kpop" is just being a stubborn and idiot in the same time

    but if they said "BTS not an idol Music" then i think we can agree that a fair argument
    look at KMA (AKA Korean grammy) they known for not giving a shit for idol music. to the point that they don't listen to idols as "artists" or "singers" but there is some groups that already went right there and smacked those KMA judges by the level of the "artistry" in their music

    Big Bang, SNSD, RV, BTS

    they all won in KMA and they have the right to call their favs
    an "artists" with great music and not an idol level
