BTS’s Suga Responds To Fan Asking Him To Speak English During Weverse Live
During the past few months, ARMYs have been raising concerns over the lack of proper fan etiquette on Weverse when the BTS members do livestreams. One of the many comments being flagged as inappropriate is where the members are asked to speak in English.
every time the boys do lives there are people asking them to speak in english, please stop it. if you want to understand what they are talking about, you must learn korean.

The BTS members themselves have called out a few problematic patterns in the Weverse comments during their lives, including RM and V. When J-Hope did a live broadcast before his enlistment, he also got multiple requests to speak English and responded with apparent frustration.
Namjoon: Many people are writing strange chat.
🐨 You guys have changed.
🐨 I think it's better to do a live without looking at the comments
Hope this is a lesson for some of those weverse weirdos, we need to start cleaning the chats: pic.twitter.com/OAfm3GmV0r

Suga is known to be one of the kindest and most patient people with his fans during his livestreams. He never hesitates to fulfill requests, whether ARMYs ask him to show his hands,

Suga always seems happy to oblige. But this time, he had to pull the brakes.
After finishing up his Chicago concerts, Suga did a brief live broadcast to greet fans and talk about his recent shows. He started responding to the comments when he noticed one asking him to speak English.
Speak English, please.

Suga looked unfazed by the rude request but responded sternly in Korean that he did not want to speak in English.
I don’t want to. I will speak in Korean.
While ARMYs are satisfied with the fact that Suga replied to the fan with his brutal honesty, the concern about worsening fan etiquette on Weverse continues to be a pressing issue among them.
honestly how many times do bts have to tell you guys that they don’t want to speak english before y’all stop fucking asking them lol https://t.co/rG4nPn2kpy

just to be clear, celebrating the boys for using english beautifully when they CHOOSE to use it is VERY FUCKING DIFFERENT from insisting they speak english just because it makes your life a little easier pic.twitter.com/Ih8DVObkaa
