6. The unexpected amount of new content ARMY aren’t prepared for
When BTS announced a “hiatus,” fans were preparing for the worst, but all the initial rumors couldn’t be further from the truth with BTS blessing ARMY with incredible amounts of new exciting content.
Hobipalooza last night, Bad Decisions releasing in a few days from now, RUN BTS special episode in August, BTS October concert and BTS World Cup 2022 song and most likely MANY more contents…..WHEW
