Why does the rest of the kpop fandom seem to hate ARMY so much?
1) they’re super fucking jealous. i have not tasted salt saltier than the ones these fandoms possess. bts has gone international, they’re representing south korea all over the world and that automatically means they’re getting much more recognition than the rest. someone went as far as saying that the bbmas weren’t as close to the daesang which is true. but bts winning the bbmas (and they’ve won a daesang too so wth ???) paved a path for the rest of the kpop bands to come and show themselves to the world as well. bts isn’t taking all the popularity for themselves, they’re opening horizons for mainstream kpop
2) ‘lol any armys here’ ok this is a very valid reason to hate us bcoz some immature teenage fans commented this on literally every video on youtube. superwoman even called us out for it (move to 7:30) and honestly it got annoying. armys were on political, social and all kinds of media platforms and it was so out of context, it was actually bringing bts’ image down
3) our unity and our power. we won the daesang. we got collaborations no one would dream of getting. we got the teamwork that made the dream work. armys shouldn’t be taken lightly, because when it comes to bts, we are ready to fight through thick and thin for them. Why? Because they deserve it. They deserve everything good about this world. now we recently had the voting for mwave. and two certain kpop groups were neck to neck in their votes and guess what? the entire kpop fandom abandoned us. I’m talking fandoms that swore they were more loyal to bts than the other kpop group. But in the end? They voted with that particular group not to see them win, but to see us lose. Because they were so fucking petty. because they get pleasure from bts getting harmed. but what did we do? we won. The boys named us army for a reason, we literally battled with those votes and we beat not a group, we beat fandoms. and such a stronghold has probably gotten them scared or what idk but basically they hate us more now.
4) someone antis have pretended to be armys and started fanwars. the situation has gotten pretty ugly. I rmr when someone hacked into bighits site and i think twice’s mv was put up there? you know what the media did? they didnt talk about it, thats what. the issue was taken so lightly and a bunch of people from the twice fandom went as far as making fun of us for getting hacked because we deserve it. bottomline is, antis have created a misconception about us which is why we’re so profoundly hated
These were a bunch of reasons that were on the top of my head. there are surely many more but I’m pretty sure these are the main ones. none of these were meant to offend any fandom or any group. All groups are amazing its just every fandom has an ugly side and we were victim to it. But, like a wise man once said, “Ya playa hater you should love yourself brrr”
