as of now on v channel+, this is the amount of “hearts” the boys have on their solo videos from the bts home party:
jimin - 13.7 mil
jungkook - 10.6 mil
jhope - 2.6 mil
rapmon + v - 498k
suga - 452k
jin - 439k
and to put it into perspective
i mean in a perfect world the chart above should like this
but we dont live in a perfect world and tbh, im kind of getting sick and tired of the hyung line not being appreciated enough and the clear favouritism in this fandom for the maknae line. dont get me wrong, i love them too and i have nothing against jimin, jungkook or tae, but i do have a problem when fans shit on the rest of the members when they are just as talented and hardworking. like it truly baffles me how jhope, as the main dancer/choreo leader of bts, someone who lives and breathes dancing, who’s acknowledged by his members almost 24/7 as being bangtan’s best dancer, ended up getting such little attention on his video? 11 and 8 million difference in “hearts” compared to jimin and jungkook respectively? this is actually worse than when billboard did that dumb poll and asked who our favourite member in bts was and surprise surprise, the ranking was as follows:
v - 32%
jungkook - 23%
jimin - 12%
jin - 11%
suga - 9%
jhope - 7%
rm - 6%
and stuff like views and votes may not matter to some of you and may not seem important or a true representative of this fandom or a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but these are only 2 of the many examples. from the number of fansites each member has to the popularity of all their individual merches. to the likes/views/ reblogs of their teaser photos/videos and status updates across all social media platforms. its hard to miss that there is an obvious difference between the popularity of all the members.
i dont know why people think whenever hyung line stans bring this up, its us trying to create a divide in the members and us competing them against each other when, some of you guys have already done that? we’re actually trying to stop exactly that.
ps. if you guys have v channel+ and have the time, please help bring up the “heart” count for hobi, jin, yoongi, namjoon + tae’s solo videos. also, that billboard poll is old but if any of you can hack into their website and just remove it altogether than that’d be very much appreciated.
“You should just keep it simple and never be torn up by anything that’s out of your hands. Because what you realize being in this business, so much of it is. And I’m actually glad I was sort of ignorant to that. Starting I had a different fire, different passion about it. I was going in to get every job. And whereas now I know the odds are insane. So it’s really about because you love doing this. Whatever it is you wanna do. Stay passionate about it, stay fearless. And don’t care what people think.” - Happy 26th Birthday, Dylan O'Brien!!!
