BTS and One Direction are no stranger to having a massive fanbase. BTS’ Army is world-famous for their loyalty come what may. The ARMY has a reputation of standing by and supporting their idols through all the hate and lows. They defend their K-pop stars with an unimaginable fervor. On the other hand, One Direction’s Directioners have kept the band alive even five years later, since their break in 2015.
The world has seen up close the massive strength and craziness of the BTS Fandom. They even went ahead to draw attention to the protest happening all over the United States. The ARMY collectively launched #ARMYMatch1M initiative recently. The hashtag saw ARMY match BTS and Big Hit Entertainment’s USD one million contributions to the Black Lives Matter movement, in 24 hours. As much as the ARMY loves their BTS boys, RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook – make sure they are as dedicated towards the ARMY as they are towards them.
Meanwhile, there is the Directioners, the fandom is still very much active after Zayn Malik’s heartbreaking exit from 1D, leaving the band dismantled. Soon after Zayn, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan went on an indefinite sabbatical. Directioners are probably one of the most loyal fandoms there is. They never fail to trend their 1D boys given any chance. The fandom is always hopeful for their return. The best thing about them is their ultimate support for the boys’ solo work. As One Direction reaches its 10th anniversary on July 23, 2020, you can be sure that the Directioners will leave no stone unturned in surprising their favorite boys.
