I feel like a Mom despite them being my age lool.

I'm so happy that they had such a good experience <3

Also I'm dead @ Desiigner's interactions, the Desiigner hyung tweets killed me on Twittr. Hobi, RM & JK jamming to Cher is something I never thought I needed in my life.

And omg V losing it to Bruno Mars.

Congrats T.T

I need someone who will support me like V supported everything about Bruno Mars performance.

Thank you for compiling this. It looks like it was a lot of work!
izumichan31 22nd-May-2017 09:11 am (UTC)
I'm so happy they had fun. That's all I really wanted for them tbh.

I can't believe how much press they've gotten/are getting though.

Edit: I'm cackling at taehyung's face while Namjoon was speaking English tho

this moment cracked me up. tae so lost on rm's neck and shoulders.
jyusou 22nd-May-2017 09:15 am (UTC)
the amount of social media coverage and mainstream american media coverage they got over this was more than i could have ever imagined. this was truly a milestone for the group, and i couldn't be more proud.
mc1a 22nd-May-2017 09:17 am (UTC)
Taehyung was LIVING that Bruno Mars performance. I can't imagine what he would have done if he was there. I was him during Cher's Believe ngl.
I'm not here for anything The Cha*nsmokers but oh well. Also, if they gonna collab, I'd like to see them live because Kookie's gonna end that dude's pseudo-singing career lol.
They got to see so many of their favorite artists perform and they are so genuinely happy it just warms my heart so much.

OP, I actually wanted to ask you or overflowers when I woke up if you're gonna do a BTS @ BBMAs post and if you needed help because there are SO many tweets and videos and pictures lol
shawarmafordays 22nd-May-2017 09:23 am (UTC)
taehyung was so cute omg bopping during that live performance.

i was so happy that they all enjoyed themselves and the positive coverage :')

i hope they're partying it up at the after parties now ;__;
babyjenkski 22nd-May-2017 09:21 am (UTC)
Congratulations BTS! I continue to be amaze by their popularity around the world.
medi183 22nd-May-2017 09:27 am (UTC)
I feel like a proud mom. My colleague (also the DJ of our office lol) who's not that into KPOP started playing BTS once he noticed them from BMAs and I couldn't feel happier :')
ms_minniemaus 22nd-May-2017 09:54 am (UTC)
They were having the time of their lives and i'm here for all the press they've got. Must erase the photos with those jerks from my memory but other than that, I hope they got even more pics with their faves
in_noctem 22nd-May-2017 11:07 am (UTC)
not surprised to see fans of groups who shall not be named being salty but whatever! all that matters is that my babies had the time of their lives and they just upped their profiles and are on soooo many people's radars right now. i can't think of a more deserving group :')
queenhinata 22nd-May-2017 11:15 am (UTC)
yeah for that reason i hate stan twitter outside of my timeline >_>
mc1a 22nd-May-2017 11:15 am (UTC)
I just realized their comeback will probably blow up even more than Wings and I'm taering up (typo intended). They make me wanna succeed in life, like there's still hope.
jaelissi 22nd-May-2017 12:09 pm (UTC)
Same. Sometimes I just sit and think like.. "how do I live my life more like Bangtan? 🤔"
daceymormont 22nd-May-2017 11:18 am (UTC)
Awww they are so cute :')
They looked like they loved being there, I'm happy for them.
meggicchi 22nd-May-2017 11:19 am (UTC)
I slept and just woke up and I'm still feeling the high from the night, ngl, the whole thing just made me so much happier than I expected! Thank you for the recap OP!

I watched their latest Vlive and it was cool to see Yoongi talking about how starstruck he was by Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj :') I hope they get other opportunities like this~
happydirections 22nd-May-2017 11:25 am (UTC)
i haven't had the time to watch their broadcast. i'm gonna watch it tonight but i've seen stills of yoongi talking about it and he looks so amazed and it's just precious hahaha
queenhinata 22nd-May-2017 11:20 am (UTC)
THEY GOT SO MUCH COVERAGE!!! like I was refreshing every site as soon as the magenta carpet started and could barely keep up. Social Award or not, they got so much attention!!

also a few hours ago, they reached 5 MILLION followers on V APP :'D
nekokonneko 22nd-May-2017 11:37 am (UTC)
i can't believe jungkook and desiigner are same age. i'm dying imagining him in the 97 line group chat

man there's so many videos to catch up with. i have the day off and i don't know if i can see everything.
jrt131n 22nd-May-2017 06:09 pm (UTC)

Desiigner is 19!!!!!!!!!!!??????

alleybetwixt 22nd-May-2017 11:45 am (UTC)
Seeing shots of them in the audience while I was watching was so dang delightful. What a treat!

This is absolutely nothing against any of the other current generation groups, but I'm glad it was BTS who got this kind of breakthrough media attention over here. That 'underdog' energy, I guess. I've been so impressed with them as a group since debut... and how BigHit has managed them. Certainly not perfect, but they've done a hell of a lot of things right.

I feel like such an old lady, but I'm very, "Way to go, kids! Have a great time, gosh dangit!!!" about this whole thing. Heh.

Also i really have to give it up for Namjoon doing all those interviews. That must have been exhausting.
I would have instantly collapsed under that kind of pressure.
in_noctem 22nd-May-2017 12:16 pm (UTC)
IA with your second point. I stan many groups but I'm just so happy it was bangtan tbh?? It's a weird feeling following them from pre-debut to their debut album where I remember people on omona complained that the cyphers/skits were fillers and who knew those cyphers would end up being a cult fave amongst fans. it's just so surreal to see a group that so many wanted to see fail actually succeed and spectacularly at that.
lostintheechoes 22nd-May-2017 11:59 am (UTC)
there was so much emotion going through my body last night. I laughed, I cried and felt so proud of these boys. I hope they had fun and partied like rockstars. they deserved this.
jaelissi 22nd-May-2017 12:05 pm (UTC)
I have no words. I will not try to find words. I'm just happy it all worked out and they had a great time. I was flying, but I had a chance to catch a bit of the red carpet and my boys looked fresh. They all had natural hair colors, which, thank you, Lord Jesus. #WhenWillYourFaves
tree_star123 22nd-May-2017 12:12 pm (UTC)
lol you should have included the fan ps of rapmon onto halsey's face b/c he was like someone ps me into this pic

im happy for the positive feedback bc usa is racist

I was full force stanning out on Tumblr last night and could barely sleep LOL

I just feel so proud of them :3
rosiemotleymind 22nd-May-2017 12:40 pm (UTC)
I'm still so proud of the boys. Them jamming out to Cher is what I didn't know I needed lmao. I'm still not over how good they all looked. Tae is on another level of pretty so @Anna Wintour give him a spread. I hope they got to go to after parties and got lit.
jackieee94 22nd-May-2017 12:41 pm (UTC)
My twitter is a mess. I kept liking and retweeting anything that had Bangtan's face on it. Them jamming to others performances was cute. They got so much coverage ;_; I'm so proud of these boys.

Fans chanting BTS name at the magenta carpet and ceremony was amazing. I'm so glad fans were able to go and support Bangtan.
gathyou 22nd-May-2017 12:46 pm (UTC)
Thank you for the recap! was asleep when everything happened and I've been smiling all morning, I'm so happy for them. It's even more pleasing to think about their total nugu-debut - they've come so far already.

Are people really downplaying their success? gosh wtf. I've seen a few US attempts (from Boa's failed tries to PSY being taken as the biggest joke) and this is the most casual I've seen. Like everyone is super welcoming, chill and even serious about an Asian boy-group with 7 members getting this kind of award. I really wasn't expecting something like that to happen.

Bracing myself for their next comeback, it will be even bigger than Wings!
eelgirl13 22nd-May-2017 01:02 pm (UTC)
I feel like it's mostly salty fans tbh like when you take into account the usernames who are writing stuff like that it kind of becomes funny to me (but I think I'm just immune at this point)

And your point about them being super chill about this Asian boy band really hit hard because one of the things I was afraid of is having to see even more subtle racism against asians so when everyone was treating them like actually artists it made my heart so happy (not to mention the rise of "third guy from the left")
eelgirl13 22nd-May-2017 01:13 pm (UTC)
I'm loving everything about this ugh, but the best part is all of those Fancams of them having the time of their life there. From meeting and seeing their own celebrities in person has got to be an amazing experience in and of itself.

Laughing at what Camila Cabello said about them being so much because her ex girl group was only 2 people less lol

(Also and i need to let this out because me and my friend had this discussion last night and it got me emotional but the best thing about this is the Asian representation - from yhboys to Zhang liangying to bts (and any others ofc! I only follow zly and bts so I only knew of them and yhboys) - and as someone who is always proud of Asians killing it in the entertainment industry I really hope some of who were watching with big dreams see these awesome artists and realize they can make it too! Leading to more Asian American artists in entertainment! I mean maybe it's just me being overly emotional from my talk but a girl can dream right?)
eelgirl13 22nd-May-2017 01:22 pm (UTC)
Also Eric nam posting his congrats and tablo saying he was proud of them were the best moments for me ;; (tb to when I got emotional over tablo at Grammys lol)
