Ah, friends. This post is self-indulgent and likely won’t be for you if you don’t already stan the seven best humans in the world. (Yes. THE WORLD.) However, if you want to understand the BTS fan in your life (or act as if you’re in-the-know), this is the post for you to fake it ’til you make it. (And if you like this piece, you’ll probably enjoy 100+ Signs You May Be a BTS Stan.) Oh, and a word of warning: it’s literally 100+ things so hold onto your hats, bebes, it’s a long post.
Special thanks to my Thirst Third BTS group chat. You lovely hotties know who you are. I purple you!!!
Without further introduction – because how can you NOT know Kim Namjoon, Kim Seokjin, Min Yoongi, Jung Hoseok, Park Jimin, Kim Taehyung, and Jeon Jungkook – I bring you, the 100+ Things That Only BTS Stans Will Know.
How we got into fandom
How many of us said one or more of these to ourselves before we got sucked into the blackhole that is ARMY fandom?
1) I just wanted to know their names.
3) Just one more dance practice video.
4) Trying to identify members by hair color.
5) I just wanted to know what the lyrics mean.
6) Who are these hot Asian dudes speaking at the UN?
7) Why is Twitter trending __________?
8) The first Korean act to ___________.
9) Okay. I’ll just watch one reaction video.
10) Wait. Just how much content do they have? *desperately Googles*
I realize that the majority of these are SUGA’s lyrics, but that’s not my fault (even if he is my bias). Bonus points if you know the song without clicking the link.
22) Ddaeng (If I could quote the whole song, I would. Especially RM’s stuttering.)
30) I want it! (technically, Halsey)
IDk, army things
You know how every group of friends has their sayings and inside jokes? Well, these are ours.
31) Once you Jim-in, you can’t Jim-out.
32) Queen Spring Day
33) BTS paved the way.
34) Karma is an ARMY.
35) Who knew the power of a forehead? (confer: Our hatred of coconut hair.)
36) Bitch, There’s Seven.
37) Bangladeshi Boy Scouts
38) ARMY shares one brain cell.
39) “Min Yoongi, you dangerous man! I will sue Min Yoongi!” MOOD!
40) Alexa: Play Pied Piper.
41) My wallet is crying.
42) We were on a break!
43) I love them a normal amount.
44) Alexa: Play The Rise of Bangtan.
45) I don’t understand but I love it.
46) *Cries in I-ARMY*
47) Zooming in on photos for science.
I’d like to take a moment to inform you of my friend’s Etsy store: Pew Pew Lasercraft and her BTS-related merch. If you use my code: MANDARINMAMA, you get free shipping in the US. And yes, that pic is lasered on a keychain because REASONS.
48) Secondhand embarrassment over Expensive Girl. “It’s a cover!”
49) I would never read real person fanfics! *reads all the BTS fanfics*
50) We stan OT7.

BTS produce so much content that it is simply impossible to collect all of their iconic sayings. I’m 100% sure I missed your favorites. But these are the ones I remembered to include. Again, don’t @me because we’re OT7 in this house. (Yes, yes. I bias Suga, but I love them all!)

What A Relief, by Min Yoongi
Note: Yoongi has used this metaphor of flying quite often. Consider his response for the Dicon interview (https://t.co/OnGXPfFSMl), and how it was then repeated for 2018 Festa’s Hwaeshik/Dinner. pic.twitter.com/Et1n7m8tX0
