The septet co – writes and co-produces their own music, originally a hip-hop group but their musical style has evolved over the years to include a variety of genres thus breaking all the musical boundaries.

And their work often refers to a lot of literature and psychological concepts and also alludes an alternative universe storyline.

BTS also enjoys a huge fan base/fandom popularly known as A.R.M.Y (which stands for Adorable Representative MC for Youth). The word A.R.M.Y carries some amazing meaning behind it, it is associated with military, body armour because of the fact that how these two things always go together and protects the one whom it belongs to. In a similar manner A.R.M.Y will always protect BTS and they will stand on the opposite side of the door to welcome BTS whenever they open a new door, always ready to protect and support their idols at all costs. And one interesting fact about A.R.M.Y is that it is one of the world’s largest fandom ever. 

BTS’s A.R.M.Y is not just the world’s largest fandom ever but also one of the strongest fan base ever. It is so strong that in the year 2020 it helped BTS break their own world records with the release of their new and first ever English single ‘Dynamite’, which also helped the band create an additional 7 more Guinness world records. And as of 27th April 2021, this boy band holds 23 Guinness world records, thus making them one of the most successful music groups in Guinness World records history, alongside other chart toppers like Ariane Grande, the Beatles, and many more. 

Why does BTS have such a huge Fandom and one of the biggest in the world?

Well, to answer this question we have a few reasons to state because of which BTS has one of the world’s largest and strongest fandom and they are as follows:

  • Their very relatable lyrics that everyone appreciates and can relate to.
  • They promote hard work, body positivity, and importance of loving oneself instead of alcoholism, partying and not studying.
  • Always encouraging their fans to do good deeds and motivating to keep moving forward instead of just giving up.
  • Sharing their life stories, thus trying to keep it as real as possible.
  • They are one such group of artists who never ask their fans to come and watch their MVs, concerts or any other form of videos instead they always ask their fans to first go and study hard, work hard because they as their idols will always support them and will wait for them whenever they come back after completing their work. 
  • Their down to earth, kind and polite nature which is contagious and you would also wish to become like them and last but not the least,
  • Their handsomeness, perfect well maintained body. There are hardly any A.R.M.Ys that can resist their cute, handsome, hot looks. In short they are all rounders. 

So, now that we know that why BTS has the world largest and most powerful fandom in the world let’s have a look at number of female fans these cute & hot boys have. According to a survey made in the year 2020 by www.btsarmycensus.com the majority of A.R.M.Y are females and when they say majority, it means a whopping 87%. Yes, you read that right 87% of A.R.M.Ys are females, while the other 11.03% are males, 0.74% Non-Binary and the rest 1.32% chose not disclose their gender identity.

Well, why do you think that BTS A.R.M.Y consists mostly of females? The answer is short and simple, because ‘They are a group of seven cute, insanely handsome boys’ and there is no other possible reason for it. Although when asked to the females fans that why do they think that BTS has such a huge female fan following, to which they answered that even till date women are not credited for a lot of things that they do, so they want to be a part of the boys success and help them reach new heights and create even more world records. 

Well do you think that the female fan following of the boy band BTS is growing day by day? Yes! A hundred times yes. But it is not just the female fan following that is increasing for these boys but they have a whole bunch of fans joining the fandom every minute, every day. They have millions and millions of fans already and it is expected that the boy band had more than 140 million fans as of 2017 when they had got a whopping 136 million votes for the best social artist group criteria in the BBA awards. And these numbers have been increasing day by day.

And recently with their release of a new English single titled ‘Butter’ in 2021, they created history when they got 10 million views in just 13 minutes for their MV on YouTube and the numbers have gone up to 444 million views in just one month, thus one can definitely imagine the growing number of fans the ever so successful boy band BTS has. 

And the boy themselves on various occasions have thanked the A.R.M.Ys for their success stating that it is the A.R.M.Ys that help them achieve new heights with every step that they take towards their future and it is the A.R.M.Ys that help them spread their good deeds and bring in more positivity and happiness in the lives of the people all around the world with their unconditional love and support for the band and it’s members. And of one best examples of the relationship that BTS and A.R.M.Ys share can be seen when the boy band had donated a million dollar to the black lives matter movement and their fans across the globes had decided to match their idols. Well, the results were shocking and terrific. All A.R.M.Ys across the globe started a movement #match a million and were able to collect a million dollars in just 24 hours to donate to the black lives matter movement like their idols. This very incident shows the power that the world’s largest fandom holds and BTS is said to be lucky to have such a dedicating fan base who supports their idols irrespective of time, race, religion, gender and geographical distance. 

And I as an A.R.M.Y myself can vouch you on the fact that once an A.R.M.Y, forever an A.R.M.Y because once you are a part of this every growing fandom, you can’t just unlove these boys and their amazing music that not only soothes you in your difficult times, spreads happiness but mostly importantly it motivates you to be the better version of yourself by working hard and never giving up on your dreams.
