BTS ARMY Gets Clowned, Yet Again, By Samsung’s “Galaxy Unpacked” Event
For the second time in seven days, BTS fans have been slapped with “expectation vs reality”.
On August 5, Samsung Mobile live-streamed their highly anticipated “#SamsungEvent”, featuring Galaxy brand ambassadors BTS. “Galaxy Unpacked” promised to pull out all the stops, but did it deliver?
This August 5, 2020, we’re pulling out all the stops and bringing you exclusive stories and guests – like the boys of @BTS_twt @BTS_bighit! You won’t want to miss this Galaxy Unpacked.

For some ARMYs, the answer is no. Many hoped to see BTS perform, but in reality, the members appeared just long enough to do a 30-second unboxing segment nearly two hours into the show.
I waited for almost 2 hours just for a 30 seconds vid? #SamsungEvent @BTS_twt

Viewers were expecting to see much more of BTS, but 30 seconds is better than no seconds, right?

By now, most ARMYs have already accepted their “clown” status. After all, this isn’t the first time they’ve been thrown for a loop by BTS content, and it probably won’t be the last.
BTS WON’T BE PERFORMING IN TODAY’S EVENT. THEY’RE JUST ONLY UNBOXING AND PROMOTE THE NEW SAMSUNG GALAXY DEVICES.
THERE’S NO PERFORMANCE ARMYS.
SO WHO GOT CLOWNED ONCE AGAIN.😯🤡 #SamsungEvent
