It is no secret that BTS and Halsey have been friends for a long time.
The talented artists first met at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards. While this was BTS’s first American music show, fortunately Halsey was there to help them feel more at ease.
She gifted each BTS member with delicious churros. In return, BTS asked Halsey to try their favourite snacks from South Korea.
Two years later, BTS and Halsey had their first collaboration with “Boy With Luv”. This song has smashed countless international records.
Both artists have consistently complimented each other.
In a behind-the-scenes clip for “Boy in Luv”, Halsey talks about how nervous she was as she never did choreography in a music video before.
However, she thanked BTS for encouraging her which allowed her to focus on the choreography that she pulled off in the music video.

Furthermore, Halsey had the honour of writing for BTS when they made TIME 100: The Most Influential People of 2019.
In her tribute, she articulates her love for BTS’s talent and how their message transcends cultural boundaries to bring people together.
In her article, she has endless praise for BTS’s message and their music.
With positive messages of self-confidence, intricacies of philosophy hidden in their sparkly songs, true synergy and brotherhood in every step of their elaborate choreography, and countless charitable and anthropological endeavours, BTS have put their 14 best feet forward as role models to millions of adoring fans

However, Halsey also highlights the friendly nature and fun-loving personalities of “the boys” as she affectionately calls them.
Outwardly, they are polished and professional, but hours of laughter, secret handshakes and gifts exchanged show those around them that underneath this showstopping, neatly groomed movement are just some guys who love music, one another and their fans
But the best part about this whole friendship has to be RM and Halsey’s awesome handshake.

The way @BTS_twt and @halsey openly talk about their friendship is so rare. You can see that it's genuine, and regardless of where they're from or the languages they speak, they just truly enjoy being around each other. There's so much the world can learn from this friendship 😊

ARMYs are even thinking about adding her name to their fanchant during the BBMAs.
I'm all for adding Halsey's name on the fanchant for BBMAs. It increases the value of BTS' clout amongst Western artists.
Always look at what will push the boys higher. It will also solidify the strength and value of BTS ARMY.
Think about the kind of power it will create.
