It started from name BTS, Bangtan Sonyeondan, which has the meaning Bulletproof Boy Scout. It’s concluded that Bulletproof and Army are linked to one another, and can’t be separate. That’s why ARMY become the name of their supporters or fans. They even have some unique phrases that are popular between them, like “I Purple You,” which,in Korean, is called “Borahae,” meaning “I’ll trust you, I love you, support you, to be loyal to you.”

ARMY are very solid all over the world. If something that’s related to BTS rises to the surface, they become a united front to protect the BTS members, especially on social media nowadays. Like Katy Perrym who performed after BTS at the Jingle Bell event in London, once mentioned something that was hurtful to ARMY. She mentioned jokingly that the fans who watched BTS must be so happy because they could stay up past their bedtimes (that she thought that the ones who watched BTS are mostly under age). It broke the ARMY’s hearts, so they startied to not enjoy Katy Perry’s performance and leave the place.
