Sorry I don’t know how I missed your reply but...Yeah I dunno how much freedom BTS has so I try to give them the benefit of the doubt. I can read between the lines so I can tell they are trying...I guess for me though I want to them to actually say it I don’t wanna have to guess that they support me. I really admire Namjoon, every time he speaks I feel happy about what he is saying but then that doubt always comes back to me every time I think about certain issues with them. Maybe I just don’t know how to let go I’m not sure I’m probably just being dramatic...Fans say it’s not up to them it’s big hit but no one really knows the truth they don’t work with these idols. They can’t have it both ways either, fans wanna brag about BTS speaking up about things other idols are too scared to speak on and then turns around and say they can’t speak up at the same time. It’s always very convenient which arugument they will use too.

I definitely think some of them want to do well, I just don't want them to get to cash in on performative wokeness and get taught that that's as far as they need to go, it sets such a crappy standard (especially if you think about how many female idols there must be that would love to be able to advocate against violence etc. but will never be able to do so because it would piss off their fanbase). I too get the idea that Namjoon really is interested in learning and not a hateful person at all (maybe just ignorant at times), and while he's still young and ego can get in the way he does have it in him to genuinely make a difference, but if fans keep praising him for doing the absolute least then it's less likely that he actually will. Not to mention BH are pushing this image but none of them actually get any extra time to actively spend to spend on researching and investing in the causes that they're supposed to be working for. They come across as humble and considerate in interviews but the type of praise their fans give can very easily get to their heads.

I'm still really curious what they would be like outside of Big Hit's influence. They were the ones that pushed woke as a business strategy while at the same time making sure the guys will never say anything even remotely controversial as to not lose out on any money.
