Any way you slice it, BTS pretty much saved my life (here).
Like I said earlier, I was at my weakest, saddest and lowest point ever, and while searching for something to watch on YouTube, I clicked on Trending and saw them singing along with James Corden and was instantly smitten!
They were a beacon of light in the darkness, or rather my darkness!
I’ve always sorta’ heard about the boys, but never really gave them a second glance, up until they appeared on Carpool Karaoke on The Late Late Show With James Corden back in early March (which was trending on YouTube at the time)… and for almost 17 minutes, my heart palpitations were forgotten!
I knew next to nothing about them, but once I watched the video (first and last episode I’ve ever watched of Carpool Kareoke), I quickly became interested in BTS!
Their were so many of them (7 in total) and they all looked so cute and the chemistry between them was very endearing! They were all just so very, very charming!
Once the video ended, the next one after that was BTS Performs “On” at Grand Central Terminal on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
As it turns out, these guys were wonderful entertainers! They really put on a show!
In fact, they put me in the mind-set of my first K-Pop loves H.O.T. and Shin Hwa from back in the day (1999 to be exact).
I mean… WOW!
After that, I was obsessed (to this day) with the all-male South Korean Boy Band called Bangtan Boys (acronym for the Korean expression Bangtan Sonyeondan meaning Bulletproof Boy Scouts) also known as BTS!
I spent hours watching songs and videos and clips of them on YouTube, of which there were many (an almost endless supply)! Apparently, everyone else loved these boys too!
Unfortunately, when I shared the videos with my nieces and nephew, I quickly realized they could not tell the boys apart!
Once the lockdown was lifted and my friends began visiting me, I noticed that they couldn’t tell the boys apart either!
Not that my friends or family read my blog, but I figured I’d go through the members of BTS from oldest to youngest and share what I like about them (and how to tell them apart -_-) and so on.
