RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook of BTS have officially enlisted in the South Korean military services.
BTS fans, known as ARMY, are grappling with a mix of emotions as all seven members, namely RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook, have officially enlisted in the South Korean military services. While the news has left fans feeling emotional, it hasn't dampened their love for the group. In a remarkable display of support, ARMY has taken it upon themselves to propel BTS songs up the charts.
In a surprising turn of events, ARMY managed to disrupt the usual holiday dominance of Mariah Carey's 'All I Want for Christmas Is You,' a song that typically dominates the charts in December.
Despite the prevailing sadness, within just two days after the enlistment of the final four members (RM, V, Jimin, and Jungkook) on December 11 and 12, ARMY successfully charted two songs from BTS's debut era.
BTS's 2017 hit 'Spring Day,' featured in the album 'You Never Walk Alone,' claimed the top spot on iTunes charts, dominating in 83 countries from December 12 to December 14. The song, themed around longing and anticipation to reunite with someone, resonates profoundly with the current sentiments of the ARMY.
Additionally, the rap line's track 'Outro: Tear,' released in 2018, also ascended to the number 1 position on the iTunes chart in the USA on December 13. Despite the sombre atmosphere, ARMY's collective efforts showcase an unwavering commitment to supporting BTS during this challenging period.
As BTS is currently fulfilling their military service obligations, a documentary titled "BTS Monuments: Beyond The Star" is on the horizon. This eight-part series will delve into the band's remarkable journey over the past decade. Marking their debut in 2013 with the album '2 Cool 4 Skool,' BTS has since become a global music phenomenon, capturing the hearts of countless fans. The eagerly awaited docuseries is scheduled to premiere on December 20 and will be available for streaming on Disney+.
Releasing two episodes every Wednesday, the documentary promises an intimate look into BTS's evolution over the last 10 years. Fans are especially excited to witness the nostalgic moments and follow the group's trajectory toward international stardom.
