The Most Influential Boy-Group, BTS!
Who doesn’t know BTS? The group consists of seven amazing members, RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook, and debuted on June 13, 2013, with the song “No More Dreams”. They started from the bottom, with a small company, and now they’ve become one of the most successful boy-groups in the world, topping music charts and gaining a sizable global fan base.
Many people, from all circles of life (whether an ARMY or not), love and enjoy BTS songs. This is because the songs that BTS brings have a deep meaning and are not just about romance like most other groups. They talk about social issues, the life of youth, about worries, fears, and many other things. Apart from that, many people (especially ARMY) love BTS because of their personalities and their groups’ atmosphere.
Because of the fans’ love for BTS, many fans have been generous in giving them gifts. As BTS, themselves, are also generous about gifts, they often give gifts when there are members who have birthdays. They like to exchange gifts on any number occasions, not only for fun, but sometimes they prepare deeply meaningful gifts for each other.

BTS Got A Massage Chair From ARMY
In order to celebrate its first birthday on August 1, 2016, V Live held an event where it would distribute prizes to chosen V Stars. V Live asked fans to participate by recommending their favorite artists, as V Stars, along with the gifts that fans wanted to deliver.
From July 22 until July 31, fans recommend their favorite idols and the gifts they wanted to give in the V Live. On August 4, the results were revealed on its Facebook pages, and they announced the five V Stars who got the most recommendations.
On October 13, 2016, which was also Jimin’s birthday, BTS did their V Live as they received the gifts. The broadcast was opened by RM and V, and then shows the other members, including Jimin sleeping in the massage chair.
They explained why there was a massage chair in their practice room. They said, “It been one year since we were on VLIVE, as a 1-year anniversary gift long-awaited full-body massage chair our fans wanted, we have it now.”
Suga heard there were a lot of options other than a massage chair, like a doll that was worth about as much as a massage chair, a stone (pun), a gold bar, some expensive land in the Gangnam district, handcuffs-because you stole my heart (lol), and “Anywhere Door” of Doraemon. But, in the end, they received a massage chair because so many fans suggested gifts like the latest massage kit, the finest massage machine, full-body massage chair, luxurious massage machine that rejuvenates your tired muscles. They said that they had wanted a massage chair for a very long time, but they couldn’t find a place to put it. BTS really appreciated the gift, and gave ARMY their thanks.
An ARMY said “I guess you must be exhausted due to a hectic schedule. Thank you for managing it and enjoying on stage, if you get our gift, I hope you guys won’t fight and have a relaxing time together.”
Jungkook said, “Since you sent it to us, we’ll take care of ourselves using it.” They also promised not to sit in the chair when they were covered in sweat.
Before the video ended, they said thank you to V Live becauseit gave them a way for their global fans feel close to them, and they believed they would perform better thanks to this chair. The group also talked a little about the first stage of their comeback.
