Joining a popular fandom like BTS‘s has its perks: you get to interact and engage with thousands of ARMYs who love the same idols as you do.
What did these first-time ARMYs experience when they first joined the BTS fandom?
Here are 15+ memorable, relatable and sometimes hilarious AF tweets that ARMYs shared about their “first time”:
1. BTS keeps ARMYs going
I first got into @BTS_twt during my exam season, board exams were right around the corner and the only thing that kept me sane was discovering their discography and getting my wigs snatched #MemoriesWithBTS

4. It’s okay, we’re all in this together
when i first got into bts I just wanted everyone to know about them. id tell all my friends, play songs, show them MVs, etc. maybe 10% actually ever showed any interest. it just is what it is & people have their own opinions. I just got tired of the ignorant comments 🤷🏽♀️

5. “Yeah, I’ll have one bangtan to go, please”
when i first got into bts i didn’t know it stood for bangtan so when i saw the iconic bangtan burger ad w taekook i thought that was the korean word for burger for like a week straight 🤡🤡🤡

Back when I first got into bts during the dope era and was still learning their names, I distinctly remember temporarily calling Seokjin ‘the one with a cute smile’ pic.twitter.com/xV5ubdKAJH

16. Wow, their love for their country’s defense organization is really something
When I first got into BTS I searched up vids of them crying and one of the vids was them thanking ARMYs and so I was like “aw they must really appreciate the Army for helping their country” and then I found out that they called their fans Army #ArmyConfessionDay pic.twitter.com/ovh2TjJnav

17. Get yourself a man who doesn’t make you wait (for a long time)
i can’t believe i spent 2 years waiting for one direction to get back together from their “hiatus” when a whole bts existed smh

18. BTS is helpful to ARMYs dealing with their mental health concerns
I’m 34 (in a week) IT-manager graduate from Russia living in California. Mom of two adorable kids who first introduced me to @BTS_twt and got me into this fandom. I was depressed after moving to a new land. And BTS helped me to get through it. #HallyuFansOver30 @the_ahjummas pic.twitter.com/Pyq3KXFJy9
