Of course, Korean A.R.M.Ys are super proud and excited for the group’s new history-making event.
- “Sorry but I’m crying f*ck ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ I’ve never expected this from them ever since I started fangirling, last year was a year filled with surprises ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅜㅠ”
- “They are seriously the best!”
- “This is seriously shocking ㅠㅠㅠ Kids, I’m so proud of you ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ They are the first Koreans to perform on the Billboard stage!!!!! BTS, I love you!!!”
- “Wow seriously, they are with the hottest people there…”
- “BTS is the best ㅠㅠ”
- “I’m too proud ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ”
- “Wow daebak ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ Having their comeback on the Billboard stage…”
- “Seriously the best ㅠㅠㅜㅜㅜ”
- “They really are another level!”
- “Worldwide bangtan class! Seriously, so proud! ㅠㅠㅠㅠ”
- “The fact that their comeback isn’t on Show Champion but in America on the Billboard stage? Who would have ever imagined it?”
And some are begging the haters to claim that BTS will never be able to get a Grammy, since everything negative the antis have said about BTS has been proven wrong!
- “Please tell them that Grammy’s is impossible ㅠㅠ ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ”
- “Can you just say “Not the Billboard, but don’t go to Grammy’s” once? ㅠ”
- “Ah please haters… Please swear at them for not going to the Grammy’sㅜㅜㅜ”
- “I saw some haters say “They can’t go to the Grammy’s ~” before, and I thanked them ㅋㄱㄱㅋ”
- “I’ll watch this space next year when the Grammy award comes out.”
But even netizens who aren’t necessarily fans of the group are congratulating them for the achievement. It’s big news for both Korean and international A.R.M.Y, but also a huge achievement for Korean music!
- “Especially for this kind of good news, a Korean artist attending Billboard to perform, isn’t it weirder if we don’t congratulate them? It’s better if we all congratulate them together.”
- “It’s just because it’s Bangtan the haters are busy downvoting everything, but it’s actually good news? Bangtan is opening the road for others, people will be able to pass more easily later, no?”
- “So their comeback will be on BBMA? That’s daebak. As another group’s fan, I’m amazed… Wow, I can’t close my mouth.”
- “The fact that our country is being represented is amazing.”
And BTS continues to shoot down the anti-fans by breaking new records!
“I think at this point the possibilities are truly endless and it just goes to show that no matter how hard antis try to bring down BTS they always come rising even higher with their music and projects.” — BTS Fan
The BTS members can’t wait until May 20, and neither can the fans!
