Many international icons such as John Cena, Halsey, and Max, have recognized and appreciated the mutual love BTS and its fans have for each other.

Well, then why did BTS stop receiving gifts from their fans? Aren’t gifts supposed to be one’s expression of their love and support? If you’re wondering these questions too and thinking why BTS rejected their fans’ support like this, then let me tell you what exactly happened!

BTS members received some really luxurious gift items! Jungkook, on his birthday, once received 8 iPhones and many gold bars! Jimin’s room filled with designer clothing and many times, other members received properties and cars as well! The boy band realized that these gifts were being bought using a lot of money which could be used for something better! Therefore, Jungkook, RM, and Jhope released statements in late 2017 asking their fans to use this money to support those who are in need!

It is very easy to think that BTS rejected their fans’ love. But this is not what happened. The boys actually used themselves as role models for their fans to bring happiness and love to the lives of those who need it the most! BTS clearly stated that they are lucky enough to have their fans and don’t need anything else. And since then, many charity projects have been conducted under BTS’ name by their fans. We stan kings, don’t we?
