With the release of the song “Run BTS” on their most recent album, PROOF, BTS unintentionally (we think) made searching for certain content a little harder for fans and news sources alike!
Back in 2015, they released the song “Run”. Therefore, when you search “Run BTS” on any search engine, it’s impossible to predict if you’ll get results for “Run” or “Run BTS”!
Added onto the confusion is the group’s variety show, Run BTS. Once again, there’s a good chance you’ll get results for the variety show when Googling the two words without any kind of quotation marks!
Recently, a Twitter user uploaded a meme that perfectly encapsulates the confusion and dismay that comes with trying to find any of the three search results.

The comments on the post just show how common of a problem this is for BTS fans, which isn’t surprising!

Maybe it’s actually a good marketing strategy, since it could get people to watch or listen to things they might otherwise not have! 😂
