[Instiz] 161026 I knew Min Yoongi would be like this ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

"drinking capacity ranking by Hosek~"

1. Yoongi
2. Seokjin
3. Jimin
4. Namjoon
5. Jungkook
6. V
7. Hoseok

Min Yoongi can drink a lot ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ He always said he can't even drink a glass but even last time on "Boss is Watching" he said  their managing director made him drink 10 glasses of beer ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Min Yoongi is the best drinker ㅋㅋㅋ I expected Seokjin and Jimin after him

1. I knew it when Namjoon and Jimin made that "this hyung is lying" kind of face when Yoongi said his face turns red when he just drinks a glass during Kkul fm ㅋㅋ That's totally a lie ㅋㅋㅋ +34 -0

2. Beer doesn't really make you drunk.. it would make him feel full.. I'm surprised that his stomach can hold 10 glasses of beer... Yoongi doesn't even eat much... +32 -0

3. But waitㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Did Hoseok write "Suga" and "Jin" without adding hyung behind their names? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ ah cute ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ +19 -0

4.Ah but Taehyung and Hoseok are so adorable.. Kim Taehyung can't even drink beer and Hoseok can only drink 3 shots of soju.. ㅠㅁㅠ I'm dying from cuteness +4 -0

5. But during Bon Voyage, Hope drank his beer while Taehyung exchanged his with a non-alcoholic drink all by himself. I thnk that's just Hobi's aegyo... +3 -0

[Instiz] 161025 Boy idol's parents used to call him teddy bear when he was little.bts

Me: Please tell me if you had any nickname your parents used to call you when you were little!

Taehyung: Wow this question is smart. I had a nickname! My dad used to call me by this nickname!! (writing "teddy bear" while reading it out) My dad used to call me by this nickname every day! 

It's BTS V!

He's nickname used to be teddy bear ㅠㅠㅠㅠ

[PANN] 161026 I think I know why BTS is hated

I'm not ARMY but I just like BTS
I buy their albums too ㅋㅋ
It just crossed my mind that they have many anti fans
And I think it's because the antis are guilty
Many of BTS's songs talk about how they try their best to live their lives, right? And some of their songs kind of disses about people who don't make effort
Don't you think the antis hate them because they're the ones who aren't making effort to improve their lives?
Like they're annoyed with BTS because whatever they say is true ㅋㅋㅋ
That's very pathetic...

1. I honestly hope some of you who think it's logical to slander BTS as if that is similar to attacking ARMYs to reflect on your behavior... It's okay for you to critize ARMYs if they had done something wrong but I don't get why you have to leave harsh malcious comments directing BTS. And the ones who dislike this post, I don't see you guys reflecting.. You even say things like they're different on and off camera.. +147 -7

2. Agust D say: How is it my fault that your life's going nowhere? +130 -4

3. So the ones who disliked this post are the ones who slandered BTS? I think the OP was talking about the antis and I don't know why you guys are feeling so guilty... +118 -0

4. This is so true. If you feel guilty, it's your own problem. +42 -0

"Idol who disses about another idol"
Suga: It wasn't a diss made to diss anyone. I didn't critize about any specific person, I was rather expressing my confidence. If someone feels guilty after listening to it, they're the ones with the problem.

5. I'm asking this because I'm very curious. It was absolutely wrong for ARMYs to slander others but if some fans from other fandoms make personal attacks to BTS, how is that different from what ARMYs did? +42 -0

6. It's hilarious to see how some people slander BTS just because of some immature ARMYs ㅋ What did BTS do to deserve the hate? +31 -1

7. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ right now this is the place where they award the people who excel at slandering BTS so  you shouldn't write posts like this over here. They'll curse at you and dislike your post +23 -0

8. I like how their lyrics are becoming blunter. You can tell they're directly attacking back when you listen to their official fansong and am i wrong was really frank. Agust D-nim does it too and it's so f***ing cool +19 -0

[Article] 161027 "BTS" flies into the world... "We will become the idol you trust listening to"

Idol group BTS spends second week on US Billboard Album Chart.

They're the first Korean artist to set such huge record.

Journalist Yoon Hyunsook met "Idol of Records" BTS who is making new history and changes in KPOP.

BTS's new album "WINGS" spends second week on US Billboard Album Chart.

On the first week they debuted at #26 and this was the best result achieved by Korean artist.

They're also the first Korean artist to enter the chart again for 2 consecutive weeks with the same album.

We asked what was the secret behind achieving astonishing records like topping in 97 iTunes Chart and rising as the KPOP trend.

[Suga/ BTS: All our members participate in making our album and I think we write many lyrics that are relatable by our generation- listeners who are in their 10s~20s. I think we write supportive lyrics.]

[Jimin/ BTS: We try our best to show many sides of us by using SNS and I think our fans  feel younger or elder brother like charms from us...]

[Rap Monster/ BTS: I think many people overcome the language or nationality barriers to feel our energy together with us.]

They were proud of their explosive popularity but they stayed humble.

[J Hope/ BTS: Many of our fans and the public watched our video  favorably and this made me think, "Ah, our efforts are rewarded.."]

[Jin/ BTS: I think it's right for us to say we feel more responsible and not pressured. I believe that we should keep improving what we do to show better performances in times like this.]

They debuted only 3 years ago. They're writing a remarkable growth narrative but they said they still have more to show us.

[V/ BTS: We hope we could have the chance to express someone else's story with our music and not only our story.]

[Jungkook/ BTS: I guess our concept would blend in naturally with the specific generation when the time comes? That is my opinion.]

They also revealed their dreams of becoming an idol who listeners trust listening to and an idol group that continues to grow with their fans.

[Suga/ BTS: The pain suffered by youths, we try our best to incorporate the pain as much as we can and we really hope we could present you with songs that capture more of these things.]

[Rap Monster/ BTS: Team you trust listening to their music, team you trust watching, we really hope we could become BTS who you trust listening to and watching...]

[PANN] 161024 It looks like we now know our boys' game characters ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

I think our ARMYs asked them at the fansign events ㅋㅋㅋ
Last time, a member of another group mentioned that he plays Overwatch game with BTS members
So what is Overwatch? You can consider it as a first person shooter (fps) video game
I heard that the character McCree played by Jungkook is strong
They say that McCree is an offense character. I knew Jungkookie would play games a lot ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ he's good at it too

Jungkook plays McCree well!
BTS Jungkook plays well!

Taetae said he plays Mei and she's a defense character but she freezes others so players call her Mei + psychopath = Meicopathㅋㅋㅋ

Personally I thought Taetae would play Tanker or Healer.. I expect him to tag along other players and help them when they need his help ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

"When you used to play Overwatch, which character did you often play?"

You can consider Yoongi's as a charging character! like a Tank.

He plays D.Va this pretty character ㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜ I mean ㅜㅠㅠㅠㅠ I play D.Va too but what if Yoongi says things like "NERF THIS!"? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Yoongi plays a girl character ㅠ.ㅠ ㅠㅠㅠㅠ even this is killing me 


So we eventually learned their game characters... I was curious what character TaeTae would play ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I never imagined him to play that character ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ because people usually get really annoyed playing her ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

Please do a live game broadcast ㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜ they'd be like real boys when the three of them play the game, right? I think they would do a broadcast some day...☆

Anyway 1!2!3! Cheer up today too!

[Article] 161025 Interview 3 "Infinite Challenge" Kim Taeho PD "Chances of Park Myungsoo X BTS Collaboration is..."

- How realistically is it possible for Park Myungsoo and BTS to collaborate?

"I couldn't give a definite answer back then  because the definition of "working hard" for Park Myungsoo is different compared to the definition of "working hard" thought by the viewers. BTS is positive about the collaboration but we're not confident. (laughs) Yoo Jaesuk focused in practicing so much that he didn't allow the cameras to record him while he practiced with EXO. The choreography of idols are often off beat and they have many little moves. And sometimes they express their moves with their feel and it's hard to achieve this in a short period of practices."

[Article] 161024 BTS's 4th win with "Blood Sweat & Tears"- "All Kill"

[Misc] Apology letters from fans who caused the problem

We have included apology letters willingly written by the members.
We request letters of apology from members who agreed with these members in the comment section. 
We will immediately include any apology letters we receive from other relevant members as well.

1. I'm one of the "dot" who posted one of the controversial posts. (written on 2016.10.24 02:54 / edited at 17:35)

I'm the member who posted one of the controversial posts with the title "Other fandoms said they're going to do a mock mass streaming".
Before I begin, I apologize to unspecified fandoms of other groups who would have been wounded by my words.
As you can tell from my post title, I didn't claim the ownership of "hub home". I expressed that  "I disliked others following the <mock mass streaming>". (Mock mass streaming is different from usual mass streaming before the group's comeback. We mass stream and download songs just like their actual comeback and I thought BTSdotcom was the first fansite to organize such event and that they were the first fansite to use the expression <Mock Mass Streaming> at the time I wrote the post.)
I mentioned that I disliked "Let's build a hub home and do a mock mass stream" and this meant that "I disliked others following <Mock Mass Streaming>", but I admit that it's my mistake as it can cause different interpretations and  I'm sorry.
The purpose of the last sentence of my post was written to control extreme anti-fans of BTS from joining BTSdotcom so that was why I asked the members to refrain from mentioning my post outside.
However, I used aggressive words towards other fandoms unlike the purpose so I sincerely apologize for this. I apologize for remaining as a spectator even when other members left sarcastic comments about other fandoms on my post. I'm sorry. I will do my best to become a fan with more mature fandom sense from now on.
[Edit] I would like to add more words because even I believe that my apology letter can cause misunderstandings.
I would like to apologize for writing excuses  without clarifying in my apology letter which was written in a hurry after realizing the issue. I'm sorry.
At the time when I wrote the controversial post, I believed we were the first people to do a mock mass streaming but while writing the apology letter I was aware that we weren't the first fandom.
I would like to state that I 'm not claiming ownership on mock mass streaming in my apology letter and I truly apologize again for writing a negative post about another fandom without researching the matter. I'm sorry.

2. This is an apology letter for the current controversy. (written on 2016.10.24 13:15)
Hello, I'm one of the members on BTSdotcom with the nickname (original post). I first saw the post on Nate Pann and while reading the post I saw a post that seemed like the post I had written some time ago. I checked and it was definitely a post written by me and the post I had written at that time was "I think they're too scared about our boys". Currently, I have edited the post.
I believe that I should be blamed entirely for this problem. I am a fan who truly likes BTS and I really don't know what I was thinking when I posted that. I think I wrote it with anger because BTS was slandered all over the internet and I was stressed out and I didn't know it would cause such problem and I deeply regret my action. I have committed this action so I apologize from the bottom of my heart. When I wrote that post, no one mentioned to me in the comment section that I was violating the rules and I didn't realize that I was doing something very bad. Another person's artist is precious to her/him as my artist is to me, I am very ashamed of my action. I bow my head and extend my apology to EXO fans. I have no idea why I dared to slander another idol's when I am a no one.... I really can't lift my head as a fan because I think I have damaged the image of BTS with my mistake. I sincerely apologize for all the problem that were caused by my action. I'm not sure if you could feel my sincerity but I'm reflecting on my action and I'm very sorry.
I believe it's right for me to apologize for the mistake I've made and I felt too guilty to wait without doing anything... I hope the others who also wrote similar posts would apologize too if they get to read my letter. I'm very sorry for causing this great problem and I apologize with all my heart. I'm not good at writing so the letter might sound awkward but.. what I really want to tell you is that I'm sorry and that I apologize for my action and I don't think what else I should write. I do not know where my letter will be posted but I will gladly accept your punishing words. It's all my fault and I apologize again to those who were affected by my action. I am truly reflecting on my action. I will not slander another person's singer in the future. I know how it feels as I am also a fan of an artist but I was very thoughtless. I sincerely apologize again.

[Misc] 161024 Fansite's feedback +) they posted another one!

Original letter is here
Take out with full credits!

Before we begin the letter, we would like to apologize to the artists and their fandoms who were mentioned in the posts and to ARMYs who were targeted without even knowing the reason.

On 23rd October around 11PM, screenshots of some posts and comments which were posted in the "FREE Board" (hereinafter "Free Room") of BTSdotcom (board where only members who go through the process of fan verification have the access to) were uploaded on various community sites.

The relevant screenshots showed criticizing remarks directed to other artists and not BTS, despite them not mentioning the artists' names. After reviewing, we confirmed that these posts were actually posted in the Free Room. We offer a sincere apology to many people who were upset by these screenshots that reached outside because we didn't take an action fast enough.

Admins have forbidden members from mentioning other artists and fandoms regardless by their names or indirectly by giving hints if they are not directly involved with BTS through our Basic Rules. Furthermore, even if they are directly involved with BTS, we strictly manage the board. However, due to managing the site, organizing group order, mass streaming, we couldn't take any immediate action and due to this reason we couldn't be tough on every post and every comment.  We feel deeply responsible. We apologize from the bottom of our hearts.

Also, during the early days of opening the site, the verifying process wasn't difficult and we were able to come up with the current procedure after making many changes. For this reason, not all members went through the current verification process. This created the difference between members but we managed the site without realizing this. We're terribly sorry and we will come up with a solution for this issue as well.

Lastly, as a site, we have taken the following actions to fulfill our responsibility.

1) We have temporarily closed the board (Free Room) that caused this issue.
2) We will get rid of the members who wrote these posts in the following  ways.
3) We are currently investigating to find the members who sympathized with these posts by commenting on them and we will get rid of them equally.

[Relevant members]
"They use everything to slander them (BTS) but they don't mention our boys' talent or pre debut past"
- (ID and nickname are mentioned in the original post)
"there are many rumors about blocking Korean celebrities in China", "I think the trace left by us as the first small company boy idol is really amazing", "We're always criticized about our general popularity", "ah the responses from namcho are hilarious" (namcho - community sites with more male users than female users), "honestly they didn't even start in a small company, it was a f***ing small company so don't you think this is really huge...?", "no seriously...they're the bosses of f***ing small companies but I can't smell the vibe of a f***ing small company" etc
- (ID and nickname mentioned in the original post)
"other fandoms are planning on mass streaming after reading our posts"
- (" " ")
"Honestly, I think they care too much about our boys." (currently it's been edited)
- (" " ")
"Seriously why are they so scared? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ"
- (" " ")

[Our action]
- Reveal their nickname
- The relevant members will not be able to log in for an  indefinite period of time 

We will try to improve the site to stop similar things from happening in the future and do our best to create clean fansite culture by monitoring continuously.
We are terribly sorry to everyone who felt uncomfortable due to this problem and we truly apologize for causing a problem as a fan community site that has our group's name as our title.

Reading the following posts will help you understand
- here
- here

+) They posted another one

Original post here
Take out with full credits!

We will answer the missing questions.
We apologize for writing another letter. We forgot to mention the following points when we were writing our letter of apology.

1. Regulation Plan, we believe we need to be clear.
: We will take following actions to improve the site. We are still discussing this matter and we will add more details if we think they are necessary.

- Re-verify existing members with the updated level up process
- Delete "Chat" category under Free Room where post users posted freely
- Strengthen punishment for users who write posts that violate our Basic Rules. ("Return" will be abolished"
- Abolish anonymity
- Systematize the monitoring by admins
(Board Moderators used to monitor their boards whenever they were free. Now we will assign time and territory to each moderator to manage the comments and posts in more systematic way.)

2. Are you only going to block the posters and comments who caused this issue from your site? We believe we should get at least a letter of apology from them.
: BTSdotcom does not require any verification process when members sign up and it's an anonymous site so even admins have no way of contacting them personally. We were not sure if we could get a letter of apology from these members so we decided to exclude it from our letter of apology.  However, we will do our best to find these members and try to get a letter of apology.
And not allowing them to log in their account is equal to banning them. That is the maximum action we can take as a site and we are very sorry for this too. We are discussing to find a better solution.

3. When did those 5 people join the site? You didn't tell us what sort of verification procedure they went through and if you just tell us that it has changed now, I'm worried that this is going to make others think that you're trying to cloud the issue. And this is actually creating many arguments already.
: Before we explain you the procedure, we want to bow our heads and extend our apology for not explaining it in detail and for posting something that can cause issues. 
(nicknames mentioned in the original post) 4 of these members registered on June 1st, the day we opened the site temporarily and they filled in their level up forms too so they were upgraded on the day of the opening and member (mentioned in the original post) registered on July 7th and filled her/his level up on the same day as was upgraded.

[PANN] 161023 BTS hub home gets caught for slandering other singers indirectly

ARMYs on PANN already posted regarding this [x]

These screencaptures are from BTS hub home "Free Room" and this Free Room can be only accessed by fans who went through the verification process of proof shots of many albums and streaming. This is much more shocking because this happened in a place where only genuine fans stay active. Furthermore, the hub home clearly mentioned in their rules that members can't talk about other artists directly (by names) or indirectly (hints that will make you guess who they are). I would like to know why the members are breaking this rule to slander other artists and fandoms.

[Article] 161024 BTS "Blood Sweat & Tears" is the fastest Kpop group's music video to reach 30 million views

Music video of BTS's new song "Blood Sweat & Tears" reached 30 million views. 

On 23rd 8:10PM (KST), music video of "Blood Sweat & Tears" reached 30,007,033 views and hit 30 million views in just 13 days. This is the fastest record set by K-POP group.

Following their record of reaching 10 million views in just 41 hours which is the fastest among K-POP groups, BTS was the fastest KPOP boy group to reach 20 million views (in 136 hours) and now they are the K-POP group to reach 30 million views in the shortest time.

The unique classy video and the performance by the members complete the music video of "Blood Sweat & Tears". The video is more than 6 minutes long unlike usual music videos but it's receiving great responses.

Meanwhile, BTS's second full album "WINGS" recently debuted at #26 on US Billboard main album chart - Billboard 200, setting the highest record in Korea. BTS was the first Korean artist to enter UK Official Chart at #62 and the group is gaining international recognition.

[PANN] 161024 Hello. This is a post from BTS Fantalk board

Hello. I'm ARMY from BTS fantalk board.

First of all, this happened on another site but as ARMY, I would like to express my deep regrets and I also feel responsible. I'm writing this post to all the fandoms who were mentioned. (in the mentioned site)

The site BTSdotcom which is mentioned in the proof pictures is a fanpage that was built last June, aiming to become the "hub home" so this site is not managed by the artist's company.

(T/N: Hub home = main community site for the fandom. they organize group orders or anything that represents the fandom.)

Furthermore, we have emailed and sent tweets to admins of BTSdotcom asking for feedback.  We are planning to write another post as soon as we receive their feedback about the truth behind  relevant posts and if these posts are still available on the site. 

We request feedback regarding the hub home related incident

Hello. I would like to notify you that the posts which slandered other artists and belittled medium and small entertainment companies are causing  controversy on other community sites. It's mentioned in the site rules that members can't talk about things that draw an analogy about other singers but some of the members still slandered other artists by addressing them indirectly, belittled the quality and general popularity of medium-small companies, and these posts are reasons behind this controversy. We would like to get a feedback from BTSdotcom and from the ARMYs who are members of the site. Moreover, I hope you will respond to this issue soon because, in order to become a member of your hub home, ARMYs had to go through an official verification process to be a part of the site...

Please make a feedback soon.

I'm sorry to be sending such email to the staffs of BTSdotcom who are always hardworking. I'm writing this emails because there were posts in the FREE section of the site that slandered other artists and these posts were brought up in other community sites causing disputes and making other fandoms disappointed in ARMYs. I hope you give a feedback soon. 


Please make a feedback regarding this issue. Please I'm asking you. This is a serious problem.

Please give a fast feedback

Hello, currently posts from BTSdotcom are creating a dispute. 
I ask you for feedback.
Please let us know if these posts were written on BTSdotcom or not.
If it's true that these posts were posted on your site, please do make a feedback soon telling us how you handled this problem.
This issue is growing bigger and bigger.
I believe that BTSdotcom's decision to make a fast feedback or not will make a huge difference to this situation.
Currently, we are waiting for your feedback so please check your mail.

I'm requesting for feedback regarding mentioning other artists on BTSdotcom

I'm requesting for feedback regarding mentioning other artists on BTSdotcom

I'm not a member of BTSdotcom so I'm not sure but I do know that currently these posts have been returned. I ask you to make a feedback for the controversy that arose in BTSdotcom. I'm worried that this issue caused by some ARMYs or Attention Seekers might affect BTS who are actively promoting right now and other ARMYS as well. Please give a feedback soon.

Please make a feedback. (Please do read this)


Please read this post carefully after following the link. We are very confused too after hearing about this suddenly. In the link, it says that these posts are originally from BTSdotcom (BTS hub home). Please check if the person who wrote that post is ARMY or an Attention Seeker and I hope you make a feedback. Fans on Nate PANN Fantalk are earnestly waiting for your feedback. I hope you make a feedback soon after checking out this problem.

Thank you.

1. We're asking them for feedback so please be patient. Even Fantalk board is trying to understand what's going on. +199 -19

2. As an ARMY, I deeply regret and feel responsible about this issue and I will try to make get a feedback very soon. +191 -22

3. Fans from other fandoms, please wait a moment. We will do our best to take care of this. +164 -20

4. Seriously ARMYs are making feedbacks day and night... I hope you guys bring good result!! I understand. Stay strong ㅎㅎ +31 -21

5. ah.. I was watching BTS fantalk board earlier (I was quite annoyed...sorry) and I could tell that they were confused by the posts too and they kept warning each other not to make any solo move until they are certain about the issue because they had made mistakes before... There are many immature fans but generally the ARMYs on PANN are always ready to solve problems so I think we should wait without pushing them. +83 -2

6. I think what they're doing right now is right. Hub home wasn't created by Fantalk members. So I'm sure they (fantalk eppis) wouldn't have known this situation until they saw the post on Enter Talk and it looks like they're understanding the situation now so it's not really their fault... I see you guys trying to tear the fantalk ARMYs.. The ones who made the hub home should be blamed. I can prove I'm from another fandom +78 -7

7. Yeah. I was honestly really pissed off after reading the earlier post but all fandoms have immature fans so I think it's right for us to wait. Honestly, we did fight a lot with BTS fandom but they also had hard times and they have nice fans too who tried to explain their story so let's wait without trying to tear each other!! Let's not turn into Attention Seekers.. I hope they release a feedback without ignoring. +67 -3
