It’s been a total of 9 months and I’ve completely given myself over to BTS. Back in August, when I was just a curious little guy, I would HAVE never known how deep I would fall inlove with these 7 guys.
I was just curious, I just wanted to know their names, I didn’t think watching carpool karaoke and dynamite would be the start of something magical. I didn’t understand the super fandoms and how devoted army’s were until I became one. I didn’t think I would buy merch or online concert tickets, or collect photocards/albums. But here I am doing all the things I found insanely cringy.
These boys make me so happy. Their music is an instant mood lifter and theres songs for every mood I could ever be in. Their music videos show their passion and talent. Their interviews and behind the scenes footage shows their funny personalities . And their concerts show just how much they love ARMY. And when I say they love their fans so much, they REALLY ACTUALLY LOVE THEIR FANS. I’ve never seen ANYTHING LIKE IT.
I’ve been a part of many boy band fandoms: one direction, jonas brothers. But I never felt like THIS, never like this. Like if I had to lay my life on the line to defend them to the end, I most definitely would. With bts it’s just different, as a loner introvert 29 year old I feel SEEN WITH BTS. There is such a special connection between armys and bts that’s UNBREAKABLE. When they cry, we cry. When they win we win, when they’re angry, BITCH WE RIDE AT DAWN. I’m no longer ashamed to say I’m in this bts shit for LIFE. To the wheels roll off , forever. I wish I could fully put Into words how much they’ve changed my life and how happy they make me. how their videos help me with my depression and anxiety. And maybe it’s silly, but I know fellow armys understand. It’s special. Everytime I’m done watching a concert I miss them and I’m sad. And that’s never happened with me and ANY artists before. It’s like they’ve filled a hole I wasn’t aware I had, I love everything bts stands for and only hope they continue on being the best they can be. And I will be right here supporting them with everything in me .
PS. I love the dynamite era so much, we were truly blessed.
