So awhile back I came out from under my rock and was bombarded with this new thing called BTS. Whatever could it be? As some of you may know I don't really follow boy groups. At all. That male gendered side of kpop is an utter mystery to me. I don't know they aren't.... pretty enough for my tastes lol. Too male. Too deep of voices. Anyhow, I decided to ask my dear forum members who the hell this new fangled BTS thing was that was lighting up the forum topics with such vigor. Thus I had this thread Who/What Is BTS? The kind people at AllKpop came and informed me that BTS was some kind of make-believe boy group or something of such nature. Perhaps a boy group that got attention for having feminine legs??? I don't know. The responses were many but I don't know that I got any real sense of what the hell BTS really was? So now I hear this BTS thing won some Social Media award at the BBMAs. Such an event warrants me finding more about them. So here we are at this thread. So then... my question. Why do people hate BTS with such ferocity? I'm legitimately curious. Have they committed some sort of sin? Killed kittens? Masturbated in public? Or some other such depravity? What is it that makes them hated with such intensity. Because from my outsider's perspective, having really no immediate knowledge of the group, its members, or even its songs, it comes across to this outsider as a curious case of sour grapes. Much like the case against TWICE, it seems it angers people that these boys are doing so damn well. Granted as I have said, I have no real knowledge of them as a group, so perhaps there are legitimate reasons to despise them so. But again, it comes across as a bit of sour grapes. So then kind forum members! Enlighten me! Why do you all hate BTS with such extreme feeling??? Tell me! I'm damn curious! In any case. I wish the group the best of luck! Seems they've continued despite the backlash against them. They've persevered! Good for them! NOTE: DON'T BASH. THIS ISN'T A HATE THREAD. GIVE ME COHERENT POLITE RESPONSES! (MODS: I know there are other threads on BTS, but this one is unique! It's a legitimate outsider asking curious questions. Such isn't a bash session so DON'T MERGE/DELETE!
