It is an ongoing issue that has become a hot topic!

Since the creation of Weverse, ARMYs have had many ways to interact with the members of BTS, whether through live broadcasts and written posts.

Yet, it seems like even the members are noticing something different in the comments of their live broadcasts, and leader RM recently called out fans, and it raised concerns about the etiquette of fans on Weverse.


On April 1, RM surprised fans with a live broadcast where he updated ARMYs on everything from his activities and even his enlistment plans.

During the broadcast, RM surprised fans when he suddenly exclaimed, “Many people are writing strange things in the chat.”

Of course, while ARMYs are global and the comments are in different languages, most of them are in Korean and English, which RM understands fluently.

RM then made a short comment that took over the internet as he explained, “You guys changed…”

While explaining that the comments should be positive about “love,” RM struck a chord with fans when he explained, “Ah, I think it’ll be better if I don’t look at the comments.”

For an idol who always loves reading comments and answering ARMYs’ questions, it was a shocking statement.

After the broadcast, it raised concerns about etiquette during live broadcasts.

While the members don’t mind funny memes and comments about the rest of BTS, netizens pointed out that the comments have become out of control. The stream of hate comments, the constant asking for other members, and spamming meant that the idols were struggling to see comments from ARMYs with questions.

ARMYs have created guides for fans to help them write positive comments towards the members, and fans brought those back.

After the live broadcast, it continued to be a topic and extended to normal Weverse posts. On April 2, Suga shared a touching message after the death of musician Ryuichi Sakamoto.

On TikTok, one fan pointed out that whilst the post was on a sensitive topic, a user thought it was appropriate to comment with the “Yoongi, marry me” meme. The OP shared how wrong that was, with many in the comments referring to RM’s broadcast.

While it seems natural to comment and have ways of interacting with BTS, ARMYs believe some users are taking advantage of it to the detriment of the members.
