So i just read how some EXO-Ls apparently filed a complaint against Bangtan winning the Best Album of the Year award. And I gotta say IT DISGUSTS ME.
I am both an EXO-L and A.R.M.Y and this right here is one of the reasons I am ashamed to be part of this fandom sometimes. Both groups work incredibly hard. They have different backgrounds, but it doesn’t make their efforts anything less than amazing.
EXO gets pushed hard to exhaustion by their company, sure, but they work hard as hell to live up to standards and expectations that we, THEIR FANS, made. BTS came from a dark place, almost starving, wearing cheap clothes, not affording to even shoot a proper mv, but they work hard as hell to satisfy us every single time because THEY WANT TO. Both these groups offer us everything and all we give to each other is hate.
EXO and BTS are friends and support each other so why the hell can’t we, their fans, chill the fuck out and do the same??? Both groups deserve the awards they have received. Just because BTS won that award instead of EXO it doesn’t mean they are not “worthy”. Look at their reactions and tears and you’ll understand. They didn’t even believe they actually won something after 3 years.
And EXO.. they don’t have to win every single award. We have to be happy and grateful to the ones they already have because each award carries sweat, tears, exhaustion, pain, and so many other feelings. We should just love our idols instead of hurting them through this.
