Over the years, Korean Boy Band BTS has emerged as a global music sensation with fans across the globe. BTS’ fans or ARMY, as they are popularly known as, is one of the loyal fandoms in the industry.
ARMY stands for ‘Adorable Representative M.C. for Youth’. M.C. (master of ceremonies) is a term used for top-level rappers who are masters at their craft.
ARMY adores BTS members and form an integral part of the band’s success across the globe. They are the first ones to celebrate every milestone of the band and give them unconditional love and support irrespective of their wins or losses at award shows.
One of the main reasons of ARMYS unconditional love for the septet is because their love and support are also reciprocated by the members as they give them safe space and confidence to be true to themselves by showing their true feelings- struggles and all.
BTS members Jungkook, Jin, V, RM, Suga, J-Hope, and Jimin are often seen going out of their way to make sure their fans never feel abandoned or unappreciated as they include them in some personal aspects of their day to day lives and in their music also.
BTS share a close bond with the ARMY and are very protective of them. They try to be the best version of themselves for the ARMY.
Even though the septet is focused on their music and refrains from sharing details about their personal lives and their love life, they are constantly questioned over their dating and many times they had also been questioned if they are dating their ARMYs. In one such instance, BTS Member V studown the host by his hilarious reaction.
During The Wings Tour in United States in 2017, BTS had appeared in The Ellen DeGeneres Show. In the show, they spoke about their group and music. However, host Ellen DeGeneres was more interested about their love life and questioned if the Boy Band members have ever 'hooked up' with a fan.
"Have you ever gotten together, hooked up with any of the ARMY?" Ellen questioned the members.
Following this, BTS Leader RM broke into a laugh while the translator explained the questions to the other members.
RM tried to downplay the question down by saying, 'We are (getting together) right now."
However, Ellen wasn't convinced. "You know what I mean," and asked the translator to explain what she means, "Have you all ever dated one of your ARMY (members)?"
To this, the members looked at each other thinking about the answer to the question, and then V answered hilariously, "Not, not. No!" His reaction left everyone in splits.
