  1. Who all saw the fortnite challenge if you did wasn't Jin GREAT!!!!!! here's the link if you haven't seen it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5HUs5IxFc0
  2. I am absolutely crushed and devastated that i literally lost $200 dollars in buying fake light sticks. In December I purchased 3 Army Bomb Light Sticks V3 from BTS from the shop: https://www.btsmaniashop.com/products/bts-light-stick-army-bomb-ver-3 The price was what really got me. I should have known better. I received them 3 days ago and it does not connect to the App... and thats basically the kicker of how i knew I was fooled. When i first purchased this they didnt edit the photos in the description. The main photo had the "OFFICIAL" wording in it but now they seemed to have removed it.... But on the 2nd photo http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2irpwr8&s=9#.XEERqs9KhsM - the "OFFICIAL" wording is still there I guess i am just a dumbass for believing this. I am posting here to make sure that people check twice before buying and think twice before spending their hard earned money
  3. NOTE: Work in progress. This is a vaguely vague guess of the entire BTS mv universe, purely based off the concrete scenes we have, taken at face value, in an attempt to put the MVs in chronological order. (Without getting into the metaphorical theories). Please fix/help if you can. Fan theory sources: https://thebangtantheory.wordpress.com/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4o70iBIDNs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qWHltGieME https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPLkvX2JtOk Timeline v.1 - BTS are friends doing friend things (INU, Run, Prologue, Spring Day) - Jimin, Jhope, & Ryujin are dancers in a love triangle (highlight reel) - Suga/Jungkook are either siblings or lovers with self-destructive habits (pretty much every time they appear) - Jin may or may not be a real person (Wings, Spring day, Highlight reel, Euphoria) - Jimin & Jhope wind up in hospitals cause issues (run, Wings trailers, highlight reel) - V has an abusive father, kills him, tries to call RM or Suga for help (INU, Prologue, Wings trailers, highlight reel) - (cont'd^) Suga sets his motel room on fire, jungkook rescues him (INU, euphoria) - Jungkook gets in fights & a car crash (INU, BS&T japn, highlight reel) - V tries to commit suicide (Prologue, Euphoria) - ??? - Jin tries to rewrite all the past issues (highlight reel, wings trailer, Euphoria) Official Bighit/BTS sources: MVs: I Need U, Run, BS&T jpn (not kor), spring day trailers: prologue, wings, euphoria the HYYH notes
  4. first of all, let me say that I did some search here at BBase and have found some posts about SASAENG/SASAENG BEHAVIOUR but couldn't find one especifically about this subject alone. also please, mods, if there's anything wrong with this thread (wrong sub-forum or tags, or just the thread in general) please let me know. Due to today's events regarding some MORE sasaeng (obsessed ARMYS trying to constantly invade BTS' privacy) incidents, I think it's a good thing to keep a list of profiles already banned by BigHit or fansites that shows problematic behaviour towards the boys, so we can all unfollow, block & report in cases where they were not blocked yet. I'm putting some usernames from today's incident, but i'm pretty sure we already had some issues in the past, i'll do my best to keep the list updated so you guys will know what we should avoid in our fandom. but i'm hopefully praying so I won't have to do it hahaha Please, this is not a thread for putting any names and drag them all over social media (TWITTER especially), let's be careful to not point fingers against innocent people. And remember, just block & report, don't engage, we're not bullies. also, is there any fansite that y'all think it's worth to mention? I remember one day when MAJORSCALE and NUNA_V (and I think there was more yoongi fansites as well but I can't remember) were dragged for hanging around with some of the sasaengs, but they're already came in public with their clarifications, so I don't think they need to be blocked. I was kinda scared because I really like them.
  5. Hello every Army! I make this thread cause I love make a gig. So if you have a gig to share, please post here! Let me start:
  6. I’d like to hear about other people’s experiences. For instance, I get a lot of slack for liking them because I’m not Korean or can’t speak Korean. I also get weird looks whenever people see my BTS lock screen. People think it’s weird that I like a group that basically isn’t from America and it’s annoying
  7. Happy 23rd Birthday Taehyungie! ARMY and I love you so much and we appreciate all the hard work you put in each day for all of us. Everything you do puts a smile on my face and cheers me up when I'm feeling down and I just want to say thank you. I haven't been an ARMY for long so this is the first birthday that I am celebrating with you and I hope we can share many more together. Love LY x
  8. What? I made more moodboards? I know, shocking! Anyway, I saw these moodboards inspired by this fanfic and decided to make my own. However, when researching the types of witchcraft, I found that all of the boys fit more then one. So I made more then one. Let's go! Kim Namjoon | RM 1) Green Witch Also called Garden Witches or Forest Witches, Green Witches are highly connected to the earth and the energy that it possesses. They may have their own garden where they grow their own herbs, but they also study their area and practice with local plants and their own environment. Green Witches use plants/greenery in their spells and magick and sometimes, even their cooking and in their home. Green witches are often very natural and love to be in nature and near anything “green” - plants, trees, flowers, etc. They focus on holistic medicine and are learned healers. They are very familiar with their local region, having memorized all the species of plants, trees, insects, wildlife and flowers. They truly love the earth. Namjoonie has always loved nature and taking hikes so I thought this craft fit him perfectly. 2) Sea Witch A Sea Witch has strong ties to water and the ocean and uses that element often in their practice. Sea and ocean magick will often use sand, shells, driftwood, or other elements that come from that place. Sea Witches feel connected to water and ancient folklore involving sirens etc. Namjoonie loves taking long walks along rivers and on the beach - not to mention his deep love for crabs. He'd definitely have a hermit crab as a familiar. Kim Seokjin | Jin 1) Kitchen Witch Also known as a Hearth Witch or a Home Witch, Kitchen Witches create most of their magick in the home or in the kitchen. They are very home-based, often incredibly nurturing, and love to make their home a truly special and sacred space. Kitchen Witches love to cook and brew and use herbs, sometimes gathered from their own garden. When practicing they combine their own personal and individual magical energy with essential oils, herbs, food, and everyday objects to create their spells, rituals, and magick. This type of witch uses easily obtained items and weaves magick into every aspect of their life. They are particularly fond of cooking, arts and crafts, sewing, cleaning, gardening and baking. They are skilled in potions, herbology, and subtle magick. Jin is the main cook of the Bangtan home and loves doing it. I could easily imagine him using his magick to weave all sorts of positive vibes and love into every meal he made for the boys. 2) Energy Witch Witches that perform all of their magic internally. Their magic is one of pure energy, using circles cast in their heads and their imaginations to bring their will to life. They enjoy divination and astral projection. Also called Intrinsic Witches. This simply came from Jin's positive, cheerful, energetic nature. Min Yoongi | Suga 1) Spirit Worker/Diviner A Witch who communes with the dead spirits of humans, animals, and others entities. Some can even communicate with the spirits of trees, rocks, and man-made items. They use spirit boards and pendulums, among many other tools. Also called Mediums. Witches who primarily focus their practice on divination. Tarot, runes, pendulums, spirit boards, scrying, crystal gazing, aeromancy, stichomancy, sea gazing, ceromancy, astrology, numerology, dream interpretation, tea leaf reading, palm reading, etc. Usually clairvoyant and have a number of other psychic abilities. This was inspired by Yoongi's calm, quiet, reserved, deep-thinking nature. Seems like the perfect personality type for this kind of craft. Not to mention, he's predictions coming true: "next up Billboards" -> wins Billboard Award; "I'd like to perform at the Billboard Awards next year" -> performs at Billboard Awards the following year; "Maybe a Grammy..." lol 2) Witch of the Waste Desert Witches who work with sand and limited supplies. Hardy herbs are their best friends and they often use a lot of bone magic. They have an extensive fossil and skull collection and are constantly pouring over old field guilds for their local area. Like the herbs he would use, Yoongi is a very hardy person due to his past hardships. And because of those hardships, he'd know how to get to most out of his limited supplies. Jung Hoseok | J-Hope 1) Sun Witch A witch who draws their power from the sun. Adept at fire magic. They use candles often in their practice. They enjoy sunbathing. Their magick comes in giant bursts and they will often use a lot of energy at once. I mean, come on! Hobi is the literal sun - FACTS! Plus he's super energetic - Yoongi said Hobi was his battery; a solar powered one! lol 2) Cosmic Witch Cosmic Witches are contemporary witches who look to the cosmos, astrology, and astronomy and work those elements and celestial energy into their practice. Also called “Star Witches”, these witches often follow the planets and the alignment of the stars and base their spells and rituals on the different placements. Really this pairing just makes sense. If he's already a Sun Witch, well the sun is a star so it doesn't seem like a big leap for him to also work magick with all stars. Park Jimin 1) Fae Witch A Fae Witch tends to seek out communication with the fae folk and nature spirits. These witches are educated on all types of fae, but usually prefer to work with a certain species or one they are familiar with. They are usually very playful and mischievous individuals, mimicking the creatures they work with. They are very attracted to shiny things and are easily offended. The personality traits of a Fae Witch just fit Jimin for me - sensitive but also playful and mischievous. Jimin may not literally be a Fairy but I wouldn't be surprised if he worked with them. 2) Crystal Witch These witches primarily work with stones, gems, crystals, and rocks. They love geology, spend a lot of time hiking and collecting crystals. Usually very organized individuals that are in tune with the earth. Since Fae Witches are attracted to pretty shiny things, it made sense that Jimin would be attracted to working with pretty shiny gems and crystals. They could be useful in attracting the Fae Jimin likes to work with. Kim Taehyung | V 1) Artistic Witch A witch usually covered in paint from head to toe. They draw, paint, dance, sing, and sew their way through their practice. They enchant their tablet pens and paintbrushes, use storm water for their watercolors, and strike real emotion into their audience. Our very own little Van Gogh. Always practicing his craft and honing his skills. 2) Hedge Witch Hedge Witches practice what’s known as “hedge jumping” which is venturing out of this world and into the Otherworld. Hedge Witches can communicate with the spiritual world and can send messages between both worlds. Hedge Witches practice astral projection as well as work with herbs and Earth based magick. But what makes them specifically a Hedge Witch is their ability to cross the “hedge” aka: the boundary between this world and the spirit world. They are also very adept at psychometry, spirit communication, energy work, and time travel. Also called Astral Witches. Our TaeTae has always been quirky and an out-of-the-box thinker. I bet we'd all be a bit quirky too if we were also astral plane hopping in our spare time. Jeon Jeong-guk | Jungkook 1) Elemental Witch Elemental Witches study and practice based on the four elements: earth, air, wind, and fire. An elemental magick is work based on and honoring each element. An elemental witch may have an altar for each specific element. Elemental Witches call on the elements when casting spells and performing rituals, and may even have an element that they personally identify with and work towards finding. Our little Kookie has always said that he's a combination of the other members and this would show in his magick. Calm and cool-headed like water, feisty and competitive like fire, light and playful like air, grounded and stubborn like earth. Plus, he's the Golden Maknae so of course he's gonna master all of the elements. 2) Tech Witch A branch of Urban witchcraft, they work with html and other computer codes, have virtual altars to their deities, use old circuit boards as wards, old keypads from cell phones and laptops as spirit boards, and old broken electronic screens for scrying. They typically keep their grimoires as blogs. Who else but the Golden Maknae would be innovative enough to find a way to use technology to work his magick. Okay, there's one more set. These are groupings based on 2 branches of the Artistic Witch that are perfect for BTS. But to keep this post from being too long, they're under a spoiler cut. Now obviously, all of our boys could fit into both categories but - look...listen...these 7 moodboards were the hardest to make especially the last 3 which took a month. So yeah lol. So what do you think? Do you agree or disagree? What kind of witchcraft do you think the boys would practice? Here's a list for you read through: HERE. (There was another source that I used but I can't find it now. oops.)
  9. So some members have significantly less dance experience (and body awareness coff) than the official dance line (Jhope/Jimin/Jungkook), but still have to do their parts of the choreography.. Sometimes they deserve a little more appreciation for at least being able to catch up. Some of my fave moments (of them seriously dancing): V 1/2: Suga: RM: Jin: So excluding dance line, what are some of your favorite non-dance line dance moments? (I also just wanna see if there's more serious dancing from the other 4, esp namjin T___T ) Bonus round of BTS not-serious dancing lol

  11. For those of u who love our little Golden Youngest this is for u
  12. I know I'm late on this, but today is Jin's birthday! He is turning 28 (?) in Korea, so that's 27 in western age. Can you believe it?! He was only like 21 (Western) when BTS debuted! Can we just mention Twitter?! If you've been on Twitter, you know what I mean. BTS even changed their layout to the meme! Anyways, I just want to wish Jin a happy birthday. I hope he lives a long, happy, life. I hope he and Bangtan will be together forever. I hope Jin and Army can be together forever. I hope we can spread our wings with Jin for many years. Even if the military gets in the way, I know all of this will happen. It's something said a lot, I know. But that just means more of us wish for this. That means it's likelier to happen. I hope Jin has a great birthday. Thank You, Jin, for taking care of Bangtan. Thank You, Jin, for being with ARMY. Worldwide Handsome, Happy Birthday. https://ibb.co/0D2jk6M https://ibb.co/NWk0dT5

  16. Namjoon had a vlive for Mono, and it was everything one could want from a God of Destruction talk, including: leaving to get a drink talking so fast because his brain is a bullet train brilliant insights lots of dimples accidentally turning it off early by touching his phone. He's the best. What did you guys think?
  17. Hi, all. I thought it would be great if we can discuss BV3 as the new ep is released as if we're discussing a weekly K-drama. I depend on the English translations to watch the episodes, so I really appreciate everyone who makes it possible for people like to watch and understand what it is about. As far as I know, they have ep 0, 1, and 1 behind camera footage released. Have you seen those?

We will always try our best to meet your expectations!" PAST UPDATES: HOW TO PLAY (Click here for the unofficial SBTS guide) BTS Rhythm Game - SUPERSTAR BTS Finally Released! [Official game info] Worldwide Superstar BTS Rhythm Game 'SUPERSTAR BTS' TIPS In-game tips: • Attend daily to receive daily rewards! Extra rewards are given when you attend 5, 10, 15, 20 & 25 days in a row! • Upgrade your cards to get higher scores! ( Card levels, ascending order: R > S > A > B > C ) • The game only consumes data when updating game modes, events, and new songs. OP tips: • Game a little hard for you? Take it easy, keep playing 'til you get used to it! You can also try wiping out the whole easy mode first, then climb up higher as you go. • Your objective for this game is to obtain the highest rank. The total of the scores from your the TOP 5 highest-scoring songs (1 song from a different album) will determine your rank in your weekly tier. (The scores reset at the beginning of every week on Mondays.) • To go up a rank higher, you need to be in the top 7 in your tier. Placing in the bottom, from rank 14~20, brings you down a lower tier. • Play as much as you can! Each song is around a minute or two, from the first verse to the chorus. You get RP for clearing any song on any level. • Get as much Super Perfect or Perfect taps - sometimes perfecting a song (All perfect + All combos) can give you extra rewards like a Card Pack 1 or Emeralds. • Upgrading your cards takes time - the max. level for each card is level increases per grade (C cards max. level is 10, B cards max. level is 20, and son), so if you ever get a higher-ranked member card, equip it. Remember though: you can only upgrade a card with a card of the same theme, grade, AND level! Click here for a guide to upgrading guards by JollySama! • Always equip member cards with the same theme per album! It gives you more bonus points at the beginning of the song and a chance for a higher score. • Don't forget to clear your daily missions for extra rewards! The EXP rewards are really high! • Regularly check your Achievements in My Room. Some achievements you unlock have really good rewards, from Card Packs to Emeralds. • You don't have to obtain and upgrade every single card theme - it's best to stick to 1 theme for 5 albums first since you only need 5 songs for the weekly ranking. (Upgrade the rest when you can, though - just put more attention to your top 5 albums until you've maxed them out or high enough to keep you on top.) • Save up your Diamonds and Emeralds! Some events have really awesome rewards, some require you to purchase a certain amount of Diamonds. Once in a while some good offers pop up in the game store and some events even have physical albums for prizes! (So if you're rich (lol), go ahead and purchase some diamonds if you're up for it!) • And if you must, use your Diamonds and Emeralds wisely - purchasing Premium card packs with Emeralds saves you RP from upgrading your cards and buying too many card packs in hopes of getting lucky.

  19. Hi if this is the wrong section and you move it thank you. My girl-friend always said ARMY had the power to stuff any hater to oblivion against any member of BTS -- if any hater ever spoke in the presence of ARMY that is. However, what about bringing justice to a wrong doing on a fellow ARMY MEMBER by btsmania. -----> LINK https://btsmania.com/ I bought an army box (THAT ARRIVED WITH STUFF IN IT [thank you rng gods], they were nice enough to let me keep the other box too. that they sent WRONG) and a whole plushy set of the bt21 members [minus one member SHOOKY--what is mang without shooky ]. Took longer than expected... in conclusion they do not recommend me to return the items because it would cost me to much money. Long story, short everything arrived except the shooky and it was replaced with mini keychain of the bt21 members maybe to fill in the weight requirement to seem legit? They were honest about that situation though. They offered to give the shooky but like these look like cheap knock offs. Wouldn't you want justice for your boy-friend who actually wanted to make you happy but was treated so bad? I have pictures. I don't know if they will come out but I will try to add it here. ARMY I feel humiliated and scammed. Please tell me what to do next I paid with debit it has been 13 days since items arrived. OR what ARMY will do next. Thank you... it was for her birthday. I am very disappointed.. and sad... thank you. picture on their WEBSITE OF THE PLUSHY BELOW NOW WHAT I RECEIVED BELOW To the untrained eye they look the same. BUT MY KOYA's nose is the wrong color. My cooky ears are flappy. MY Mang's horse mane (hair) is spiky not rounded. MY girlfriend also stated that the eye brows on Cooky were off(looked normal to me though. )The quality of the dolls are terrible like they found these at the bottom of the barrel, scraped it out with a plastic spoon, and handed it to me. Apparently btsmania's customer service said everything was legit... but honestly it is not as described. i wrote a 1 star out of 5 star review. and they still only have 7 review totals for the plushy set https://btsmania.com/products/bt21-cute-standing-doll HOPEFULLY this changes and the reviews are not being monitored. very disappointed. I know btsmania is trying their best.. but what an awful experience. I do not hate bts mania.. just absolutely soul crushed at the disappointment as a paying customer. They are doing their best to right a wrong though. Sending me a missing Shooky (which will take a week to restock it is 5/8/18 right now) AN EMPTY BOX, and they let me have the other army box (identical with stuff in it.) Thank you for taking time out of your day to listen to my little rant.
  20. armys on twitter get a lot of hate whenever they say that they stan “btspop” and not kpop so today we ask the age old quetion: is bts still kpop? now, personally, i believe that bts is now more than kpop but i want to hear your opinions (since i'm new here and want to know your views in this topic lol) kpop can be used in two contexts: it could be seen as a genre of music or as an industry. as a genre, kpop is just pop music in korean. yes, there are some varieties in the sound like twice definitely doesn’t sound like dreamcatcher or ikon definitely doesn’t sound like seventeen but i think all of it still falls under the “kpop” umbrella. however, if you go to korean online forum sites like pann, you’d know that most knetz categorize their music in two more subsection: the idol music and the artist’s music. idol music is seen as more of the repetitive kind of songs, those ones that are really catchy but doesn’t really have any substance to it. most of the time, these songs are not really taken seriously and most of the time is just given to the group by their company to sing. artist music, on the other hand, is taken more seriously by the people in korea. these songs are the ones that actually has a message and is (most of the time) made by the group or the singer themselves. the purpose of idol music is to entertain while the purpose of artist music is to relay a message, to persuade, or to inform its listeners. i’d like to say that music wise, bts is still kpop however they fall more on the artist side more than on the idol side. i think bts has already proven enough that they are artists and not just idols with their music that they have been making since early in their career. kpop as an industry is known to be a “factory of perfect idols who can sing, dance, rap, and all other talents you could think of”, but it is also known for the “very strict training and management”. kpop is very stigmatized among non-kpop fans because it is something that they don’t see very often. western fans is obsessed with artists writing their own music because it could show them a little more about the artists themselves and shows the artists’ artistry. kpop is seen more as a joke or a meme rather than actual music. when psy first became viral, he was seen as a joke among non-korean people and though he charted high in billboard charts, it was because people think he’s funny and not really because he’s a great artist. a lot of armys do not support kpop as an industry. though bts was already big even before the 2017 bbmas, we can’t deny that there was a big influx of new fans when bts won their first top social artist award. most of these fans came from other western fandoms while others are just complete kpop virgins so when they first joined the fandom, they wouldn’t know anything about the systems in kpop and once they knew, they completely hated it. now, bts took a very different route than all these other kpop groups did. instead of going to every variety show ever, they made their own variety show called run bts. they make their own music, promoted in their own way. yes they may be trained and is dolled up for the camera, but they are very authentic and they want to be taken seriously as artists, as musicians. their company is not big and influential to manipulate their way to the top, even up until now. in my opinion, bts is definitely not under the "kpop umbrella" anymore as an industry. the reason why people say “btspop” also is because bts is not kpop anymore, and they’re still not accepted in the west so they’re technically still not “pop”, so we (twitter army) call it “btspop” instead. i posted a full video about this on youtube and i kind of explained it more there https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ds9pJ_MVOEE i hope we all discuss this maturely and respect each other's opinions
  21. This talented guy is so awesome that he dont deserve at less than shining with his own light https://www.koreaxdentro.com/jungkook-bts-tipo-ideal-personalidad-apodos-gustos-curiosidades-2018
  22. Am I the only one just hearing about this collab Steve had with a few members of bts? 'Waste it on me'?
  23. Who has heard the album and loved it? Who is going to have it on repeat all day long? Well if you answered yes to both questions then I have an important question to ask. What is your favorite song(s) off the album? Out of all of the songs, so far my favorites are: Intro: Singularity Fake Love 134340 Outro: Tear My list may change later, but that's what it looks like at the moment.
  24. I was just wondering what everyone's favorite era here was, and why. Mine is either Wings(those visuals, damn) or HYYH pt.1(that realistic story-line and the domino effect of all these theories T_T)
