Okay I need to let my feelings out. So I’m just going to do it here.
First of all, I want to congratulate Bangtan for winning their second Daesang award at the MAMA 2016. Artist of the Year, goddamnit. They won their first one for Best Album of the Year at the MMAs. I can’t fucking believe how far they have come in such a short span of time, and it just proves how amazingly talented these wonderful boys are. I’m saying short, because winning Daesang awards within three years since debut from a company that is not one of the ‘three huge companies’ is such an amazing achievement to do for a boygroup that started off as nugus. I became an ARMY only after the INU era, but I had been following them roughly from the beginning. They started off with No More Dream, and besides the fact that I jammed the fuck out of myself on these songs (lol), I already could see how talented these boys were. Also, when I found out that they wanted to ‘stand out’, and tell the world an important message with their own music, I knew that these boys would be able to come far in their carriere if they would work hard, and try their best.
A few months after No More Dream came out, I started to pay less attention to them, but I still watched their MVs and some of their comeback performances. I could see them growing slowly, their fanbase became bigger and they were gaining more skills and experience. I was basically a diehard Exo stan, so at that time, I didn’t pay too much attention to BTS. That was until I Need U. I can still remember myself being blown away by that song, looking at the MV with my mouth literally half agape. I felt like I Need U was the beginning of a complete another side of BTS, the side that fits them, that belongs to them. I saw their first comeback stage for INU a few days later, and I was snatched. I was fucking snatched you don’t even fucking know. Their perfomance, the fanchants, the message in their lyrics. It hit me all. It’s thanks to INU that I became an ARMY, and I still listen to that song every day to remind myself of the fact how I became a fan of this wonderful 7-membered boygroup.
When I saw Bangtan winning the Artist of the Year award today, I suddenly could see their 2013 appearance in front of me. I could see them in their horrible No More Dream outfits, the era in which they were just fighting for that Rookie of the Year award, which they eventually got as well. I realized that they became this successfull with their own blood, sweat and tears. They keep saying that it’s all thanks to us ARMYs that they have come this far, but honestly, it’s all because of Bangtan themselves. It’s all because of their effort, their stamina and their own hard work that they have become THIS far. Without their efforts, we ARMYs would not even be here. ARMY does not exist without Bangtan. And I hope they realize this fact.
They will probably never see this message, but on behalf of all ARMYs, I want to thank Bangtan for their hard work, for their efforts to make some great and beautiful music with meaningfull messages in them. Messages that every single ARMY cherishes, and keep these in their hearts. Thank you Bangtan, for existing, and giving ARMYs all over the world you see what I did there ;) a reason to keep going and to be happy.
Thank you Namjoon, for being a great leader for over 3 years, and taking care of the other members like they’re your own brothers. Thank you for producing and making great music for Bangtan, and wanting to change the world with the messages you want to convey. You’re an amazing person. Without you, Bangtan would not even exist. So thank you.
Thank you Seokjin, for giving it a chance even though you thought you would not fit in this group because of the hip hop concept. Even though you did not had any experience in singing or dancing, you still tried your best to make something out of it. And you fucking did it. Your danceskills got improved drastically, and not to speak about your amazing voice. You’re a rolemodel for so many ARMYs out there. Thank you.
Thank you Yoongi, for sharing your burdens with us in your mixtape. For inspiring us to chase our dreams, and encouraging us to speak up about our own burdens and problems. It takes a lot of courage to do that, and you just did it, and probably without regrets. Yoongi, you’re definitely a person ARMYs look up to every single day. Thank you for being such a wonderful and amazing person.
Thank you Hoseok, for being such a never ending sunshine that keeps smiling through the days, even when it’s hard sometimes. Your smile keeps me positive and motivated, and it helps us reminding of the fact that being sulky does not help anyways. You’re the golden hyung, and amazingly talented in as well as dancing, rapping and singing. You can do it all, and you have to know that ARMYs appreciate everything that you do for us. You did a great job with your intro for Wings. The applause and praise you wanted for that intro, you got them all, well deserved. Thank you.
Thank you Jimin, for NEVER giving up, for working hard CONSTANTLY only to show us a better side of you, and to make us happy. You have to know that it’s okay not to have abs, and just be yourself in front of us, because that is what makes us ARMYs the happiest. You’re the sweetest, cutest mochi I have ever seen in my life, and I want to thank you for being such a great support for the other members, always lending them your shoulders when they have burdens. Thank you. You’re an amazing person.
Thank you Taehyung, for being your fucking self even if you have an idol image to maintain. You got criticized a lot for your behavior, but you always managed to be yourself and just be happy with the other members, and I know that must take a lot of courage as an idol. Taehyung, please keep doing you. I believe you’re definitely one of the strongest vocalists in the group and I’m lowkey hoping big hit will give you more chances to shine, and I hope your drama will be a great succes. Thank you.
Thank you Jungkook, for maintaining yourself in this industry while you’re still so young. You’re amazingly talented, and everyone probably knows that already, but I feel like you have to realize this as well in order to let yourself bloom even more. Don’t be too harsh on yourself, because that’s the last thing you actually deserve. You’re a cute, sweet bunny your hyungs and ARMYs always will cherish. Thank you for loving your hyungs until infinity, and thank you for spoiling us ARMYs with that wonderful angellic voice of yours,
Thank you Bangtan, for giving ARMYs the most beautiful moment in life. <3
I had just turn on the live stream and I got to see my babies win their MAMA daesang. My heart was already a mess and seeing Namjoon like that wasn’t helping it!
In this moment, when I saw how emotional they were getting I was feeling more and more on the verge of crying - the main culprit is hidding right there!
Seeing Jin crying was a mixture feeling: my ARMY self was on a roller coaster of emotions of happiness and being so proud of them + how can he look so beautiful while crying, dammit Kim Seokjin and your visuals!
Here it is! Kookie crying was my downfall T.T Being Jungkook the member that usually doesn’t cry, that fact that you can see him on this state just made me finally
burst out crying
And then I saw TaeTae with teary eyes and my heart got even more constricted. You can cry Taehyung, it’s ok, happy tears are beautiful and you guys deserved this.
I was already missing YoonSeok and guessing that Hobi was crying and then I got this surprise!! Our sunshine consoling a crying Yoongi *o* Nope, all my barriers went away after this:
I was crying just like Suga and with the biggest smile I had on me.
I love BTS. They are so hardworking and they deserved the recognition they got this year for their work and uncondicional love for us ARMYs.
but also??? can we talk about the fact that??? isak is not afraid to show people that he’s in a relationship with a guy on social media??? like for anyone to see???? like he doesn’t care he’s just like here’s me and my even??? this is us and i’m willing and GLAD to show it to the world????
IM SO EXCITED for many reasons but also because this bodes so so so unbelievably well for the kind of post-Glee career Darren is going to have and I’m just having a lot of proud mama feels and basically I LOVE DARREN SO MUCH OMG
You realize if the Winter Soldier really does show up in the Black Panther movie it will be the first time Bucky Barnes stands alone as his own entity and superhero and not just an extension of Captain America.
i have no words for how proud i am how isak has grown this season. he became so aware of his surroundings, he cares so deeply for all of his friends and he’s doing so good with even. i can’t believe how much he has grown since the first episode
