Today the 7 little boys from Korea are known worldwide, but their journey to fame wasn't an easy one. They came from a small agency, which means they got no recognition or screen time. They got their performances cut without being informed. These are just some hardships our Bangtan Boys had to endure to get where they are. Are you strong enough to read the most emotional moment highlighting BTS' struggle from the past? If you have the courage, then read along!
When and Where
In 2016 BTS attended Busan One Asia Festival in Busan, South Korea, to perform for their beloved fans. RM was injured hence couldn't perform, but the boys were still prepared for their stage. However, the production team decided to cut their performance and give that time to some other artists. BTS was clueless about this.
What did Army do then?
The boys were preparing to leave with no other option, but they forgot they had their own Army to fight injustice. Their fans started screaming and cheering for them. They stayed until the production team was forced to allow BTS to perform.
How did BTS perform then?
The boys performed when the lights were being switched off, there was confetti all over the floor, and they weren't provided any coverage either. But they kept the energy high, and Army cheered for them louder than ever.
Why BTS deserves everything
Today, these clips and stories resurface every time the boys accomplish something huge. They still get hate, and some people say they don't deserve all this. If only they knew the struggle these young men had to go through for everything.
Sweeping the MMAs and MAMAs are nothing compared to the injustice they went through when they were still new. They truly deserve the Grammy nominee, the Billboard no.1s, and the love and prayers of millions. Watch their complete perfromance from the festival below!
