I'm 43 and a proud BTS fangirl. You should be too

Rani Neutill
It's not that I'm trying to relive my teen-aged years. The truth is that I am bipolar and have an anxiety disorder. And somehow, this singing, dancing K-pop boy band is a salve for my itchy mental wounds.
Should I feel embarrassed about being a fangirl? Should I think of them as a guilty pleasure? The answer to both questions is absolutely not.
Over the last six months I have tried to explore what makes BTS's fandom so special, as I am a recent convert. It's hard to articulate. It's like they've created an alternate world that you just want to escape into, particularly now.
My own fandom started last fall when I was teaching an Asian American literature and film class. A few of my students kept mentioning BTS. They were citing the rise of BTS's popularity as a positive shift away from the dominant American cultural imagination of Asian American men as either the submissive Charlie Chan or the threatening Fu Man Chu, stereotypes that led to the de-sexualization of the Asian American male in popular American consciousness (think of Long Duk Dong in the film "Sixteen Candles").
BTS arrives for the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards on January 26, 2020, in Los Angeles.
I had a vague idea about what K-pop was and had heard of BTS slightly but had never bothered to listen. I had initially dismissed their popularity as a teeny bopper, what-could-possible-be-great-about-a-seven-member-boy-band phenomenon. But when my students kept mentioning them, I thought: Maybe I should give a quick listen, see what all the hype's about.
The first thing that I found in my Google search was their hit, "Dynamite." I clicked. Six boys popped up on my screen, dressed in pastels. When the six walked away, one appeared, pointing his index finger out, gently shooting me straight through the heart. The 808 claps were constant. At 110 BPMs, and with a funk guitar that slides through the whole song, I found myself involuntarily dancing. A rainbow of fireworks shot into the sky at the end. These kids were pure joy. By the end, I was smiling.
That was a curious feeling. I had to wonder: How could BTS make me forget about all the things that are going wrong in the world for three minutes and 43 seconds?
I quickly learned their names and talents. RM, the sort of leader of the crew who speaks English (he taught himself by watching "Friends") and rhymes. There is Suga (a hip-hop artist whose solo work goes under the name Agust D) and J-Hope (the best dancer), who rap, Jungkook and Jimin, the falsettos, and Jin and V (Tae-hyung), who are able to scale down to alto. They write their own music and choreograph their shows. They are attractive young men who regularly change their hair color, are fashionable and funny. Above all else, they are profoundly talented.
After watching "Dynamite," I went down a YouTube rabbit hole. I found out how they donated $1 million to the Black Lives Matter movement and a video of them promoting their campaign, LOVE MYSELF, at the United Nations. I started watching their variety show and every single live performance I could find. I've binged their carpool karaoke at least 20 times and it still makes me laugh. I've made friends with people on social media. A group of women I went to grad school with included me in their BTS text thread where we send each other videos and photos every day. I tell my classes how much I love BTS and now my students send me pictures of the group and playlists.
Almost overnight, BTS has become a fixture in my everyday life. Whenever I feel upset, I watch them and they immediately alter my mood. I'm not gonna lie. I do dance around my kitchen and try to mimic their moves -- that's definitely the 13-year-old in me trying to get out.
Throughout the pandemic, BTS has managed to thrive. The Atlantic's Lenika Cruz beautifully chronicled how their success goes beyond their showmanship. Their popularity also lies in their ability to be vulnerable and in the intimate relationships they have forged with their fans through social media. They constantly create content to give a sense that they are really there for you.
Many dismiss their popularity, like I once did, or ignore them because much of their music isn't in English. BTS has been subject to racism. Recently, when a German radio host called their cover of Coldplay's "Fix You" sacrilege, he illuminated the xenophobic attitudes towards Asians that have helped fuel the rise in hate crimes against Asian Americans.
These comments and others BTS has faced also signals the colonialist attitudes that folks have about the music industry, which is dominated by English. Maybe this is changing in a world where Bad Bunny and BTS are leading the music charts. I don't know. But it should make us question why many dismiss music in the United States that isn't made in English -- a language that is, among other things, a reminder of a violent, colonial past.
For me, what has been most important is that BTS is my salve. I am not embarrassed to be a fangirl. If I saw them live, I would scream along with all the Gen-Zers. They are an antidepressant during this time of isolation, bringing me up from depressive lows. For a few hours a day after binging their videos, my anxiety is quelled as they allow me into their colorful, musical world.
BTS has given me what we can't have during the pandemic: a sense of closeness. And everyone should go and stream the new single, "Butter." It is pure sunshine-summer joy.

BTS: ARMY fan girl recalls the time when Jin left her super-embarrassed at a meet and greet and the reason will make you ROFL

BTS' Jin is known as the comedy king of the group. Fans who diligently follow the group are aware of how iconic he can be on V Live and Weverse. Well, international BTS armies also envy the K-Armys as they get maximum chances to meet the septet at various fan signs and events. Obviously, these are big occasions so fans take special care to get gifts, flowers and of course, look good. Fans who watch fan signs on YouTube know that people do take an effort to look good, or minimum presentable. A BTS Army member from Korea told Koreaboo about how Jin left her super embarrassed at the fan meet. And the reason will make you ROFL.

A female fan told Koreaboo that she had to go for a fan meet and took every effort to look her best for the band. We can understand her feelings! The lady told Koreaboo that she is still embarrassed about it. She told the portal, "I honestly lose sleep over this still. So… it was about two years ago. I was in line to meet and greet the members. I was so nervous. I went all dressed up. I wore a lot of make-up and I had my hair done nicely. I wore a really nice outfit and sprayed myself with perfume so I smell good and everything. I didn’t get a chance to check myself in the mirror before I stepped up to take my turn though…" What happened later was hilarious. The lady says the members were a little taken aback on seeing her. She says she could see the discomfort in their eyes. She told the portal, "I honestly thought it might be because I looked good that day, LOL. Anyway, I got to Jin who was the member right before my favorite member."

After listening to what she had to say Jin whispered to her, "Nuna, I’m really sorry, but you have an eye booger. Let me cover you so you can clean that up." In Korean, Noona means elder sister. Needless to say, she was damn embarrassed. She says, "And I could feel my face burning. I was like, ‘Huh?’ And I sat there getting rid of my eye booger in front of him." The young lady said she felt like having a mental breakdown. But Jin reassured her that she was too cute and eye boogers happen to everyone.

Suga's legendary fangirl

Suga's legendary fangirl 

Key Highlights

  • BTS' Suga once had a very well known fangirl
  • She threatened to sue him in several fansigns
  • Her reasons will leave you in splits

BTS currently has millions of fans scattered all around the world. Being called legendary amongst millions of people sure is a big achievement. This girl has managed to attain that by just threatening to sue Min Yoongi aka Suga from BTS. If you are puzzled, then the lawsuit was definitely not for reasons your mind may wander to.

The sentence "I will sue you Min Yoongi" is enough to crack any BTS Army up. For all the fans out there or those who are just curious, the lawsuit is not a real one. The saga started back in 2014 when during a fan sign, the girl started to shout that she will sue Suga for being a "dangerous man" and that he needs to take responsibility for turning her into such a "die-hard fangirl". Although flustered and embarrassed, Suga tried to keep his cool throughout but eventually started laughing. 

Check out the hilarious video right here:

One year later in 2015, he encountered the girl once again and this time she threatened to report him because he makes her "heart explode." This time in his usual sass, Suga replied and asked her if she'll report him again. Suga seems to recognise and remember the girl very well because he referenced the joke at yet another fan sign when Jin accidentally hurt a fan. Suga joked that now Jin will be reported and not him. 

It is safe to say that BTS Army is in awe of her. Word on the internet is that the girl has since then gotten married and is hopefully living a happy life. The girl, who said that Suga can't even drink water normally without unleashing his dangerous charm, finally dropped all charges against poor Yoongi back in 2017 and got married. 

As happy as we are for her and for the fact that Suga shall remain a free man, we sure do wonder how Suga will react if she starts her incessant suing threats once again! She is way too iconic to be forgotten easily so we are sure that another interaction between them will leave us all rolling on the floor.
