~BTS is loved by everyone because of their music’s theme. In K-pop, every group song is based on relationships, love, breakups, sadness, and so on. But BTS makes songs based on awareness of mental health, LGBTQ rights, etc. BTS made the campaign LOVE YOURSELF as I told you earlier, the reason behind this campaign is to tell those people that by ending their lives they won’t be able to kill all those negative thoughts and their problems. We should not care about this negative society. These people won’t be happy at any cost even if we do something good. We should believe in ourselves and love ourselves. We should not think about society’s thoughts. This campaign helped many people mentally. Those who were thinking to end everything and ending themselves have stopped getting suicidal thoughts. We all Army’s have a story with them, a dreadful one but BTS helped us. They healed us.
This article is published by the fans of BTS, (Ms. Rania and Alisha). Their ideas and love for the band are phenomenal. Webszine.com particularly valued their effort 🙂
