  • They saved me

    They made me fall in love with dance again after I was so depressed that I stopped ballet to study law instead. They give me joy, happiness and a reason to look forward to tomorrow and every day after that. They saved me.

  • Love at the right Track

    Many bts fans often say that BTS came in their lives when they are at the most difficult situation and that BTS gave them inspiration, show them light and make them love themselves, but for me they came when my life was on the right track which makes it kinda boring already. They showed many colors to it that everytime I hear their music I felt happy and proud that I stan the right group. They thought me how to dream big and do what I want to become happy. More than anything they made me realized that I chose the right person(my husband) who love me with all my…

  • My Truth Untold

    But one day I was sat quietly in my room crying cos I was denied a place in college, then my sister was sat in the same room and she was watching some funny tiktoks and I saw V in the tiktok. He was doing something funny and it made me laugh, at my most vulnerable moment, while I was crying. At that moment my heart was filled with so much awe at V and he’s healing smile- I continued watching BTS tik tok edits with her and saw so many comments from people calling themselves ARMYs and I was surprised as to what exactly that meant. I saw just…

  • BTS are my saviours

    Talking to ARMYs made me feel safe and i realised they were just like me- we were all a big family, each a shining star in the dark night sky- our own mikrokosmos. Together we  spazzed over you. I met many yoongi stans, many other jimin stans, J-Hope stans, jin Stans, Jk stans and of course both my sisters who themselves had become ARMYs too- one who stans V and the other RM. Sometimes it hits me how far you are - like all the way in korea, yet I still feel you're love radiating all the way through to my own little home, in my own little city. I'm…

  • A Not so Special, Special Story

    I don’t think I have a big story of how I became an army, but for me it will always be special. I remember it was when I was at one of the lowest points of my life, both mentally and physically. I have a skin condition called “Atopic Dermatitis” and I was going through a really bad flare up. My health kept deteriorating and nothing seemed to be going my way. My mental health was in a really bad state too and everything around me just made me so sad. I always knew about BTS and had heard a few songs too but never got invested as a fan…

  • The Best Worst Moments In Life

    “ Back then I didn’t know how to love myself but with the help of Kim Namjoon, Kim Seokjin, Min Yoongi, Jung Hoseok, Park Jimin, Kim Taehyung and Jeon Jungkook I learnt that self love is the best love and broken things are still beautiful.”

  • My ARMY Adventure

    Annyeong 🙂 My journey to becoming an ARMY is not the common story. My basis for saying this, is because ALL the ARMYs that I encountered either became an ARMY because of a song, or a member, or an event in their life. For me, it was a different story… I was going along with my daily “usual” life. And by “usual” life, I mean taking care of my family (because I am a stay at home mom), doing my chores and my errands. And in between my itinerary was two shows — Kdramas and the Graham Norton Show (GNS). I had been a Kdrama addict since the “Boys Over…

  • The Gift of BTS

    On New Year’s Eve 2017 my 11 year old middle child found BTS. Never one to shy away from things unique and different, she entered 2018 and the BTS rabbit hole full throttle. Watching from an acceptable mom-distance, I tried not to cramp her style, but asked her to play songs as we traveled that summer. She’d talk excitedly about the entire group, her bias V, and the music. When BTS’ October 2018 show at Citifield was announced, taking place the day before her 12th birthday, I knew going to the concert together would be the perfect gift for her. What I didn’t know, was that I’d receive a gift…

  • A day may come when we lose, but it is NOT TODAY!

    Hi, I am a 51 year old mother of two, a 23 year old son and 13 year old daughter.   Both of them do not like K-pop; however, in May 2018, my son, Caleb, introduced me to K-pop as a joke.  He knows I typically do not like pretty boy bands, but I used to love N-Sync for their dance moves.  I guess he thought maybe I’d like Big Bang. I didn’t.  They were too much for me.  Then, he showed me BTS’s video, “Blood, Sweat, and Tears.”  Meh.  They’re cute and can dance really well, but they look snobby and serious. I don’t like them.  He gave up.  Fast…

  • Lost and Found

    At first I was a little (ok, very) embarrassed that I was becoming obsessed with a K-pop boy band. It felt like I was regressing into my teen years and that was somehow wrong.

  • BTS, my parenting tip…

    I came to know BTS this year. 2021. At a time when we are all confined in our homes. I was scared of the virus. Scared of the vaccine. Scared of the future. Scared even of the outside air. I was particularly scared of showing my own fears too much because I have a little soul who draws strength from me. He is scared, too and worried about not going to school, not seeing his classmates, not playing outside. I searched for ways how to teach him how to be brave, how not to give up easily, how not to be overcome by fears. As a modern mom, I used…
