End Of An Era? ARMYs Urge Others To Stop Using “Yoongi, Marry Me,” But BTS’s Suga Might Feel Differently
It’s the end of an era.
“Yoongi, marry me” has been an iconic meme and reoccurring joke in the K-Pop community, particularly the BTS fandom, ARMY, for a few years now.

For a while, the BTS members would read ARMYs’ comments for Suga, saying, “Yoongi, marry me,” regardless of whether he was present in the live broadcast.
🐥 but really, the unchanging… "yoongi marry me"…

It quickly became a meme. Some would even comment the message in other artists’ live broadcasts and take signs reading “Yoongi, marry me” to events.

ARMYs have theorized where the meme really originated from too. Some credit Suga himself…
“Yoongi, marry me” had become so popular that many ARMYs even joked they would wear wedding dresses as their concert fits for SUGA | AGUST ‘D-DAY’ TOUR.

Recently, both RM and V have called out commenters during their live broadcasts for cringy, unoriginal comments.
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

🐻 alright. whenever i go live, i always get a few classic questions. one is “yoongi marry me,” then there’s “what’s a tmi/random fact?” “selfie”… “have you heard of mongolia? can you come to europe? can i go to sweden?” guys, of course i know all of these places.

Similarly, Jungkook decided to stop reading comments during his most recent live broadcast.
🐰 ah im just not going to look at the comments i'm going to turn it off. because each comment is so different. everyone, i'm not looking at your comments. today i dont want to look at comments. 🥺🤏🏻#JUNGKOOK #Jungkooklive pic.twitter.com/3LJ7YQTFIw

ARMYs have been suspicious that one of the reasons for the members’ sudden disdain toward comments is spam-like comments, such as “Yoongi, marry me.”

¿Esto es el fandom army en la actualidad?.
-falta de stream
-todo está decayendo
-"yoongi marry me"
-falta de respeto hacia la intimidad de los chicos.
Ya chicos, la mayoría de ARMY somos grandes, maduremos dale, y lo q paso con las llamadas de JM?. pic.twitter.com/7g4ksTfk4O

So, some have been encouraging their fellow ARMYs to give the joke a break. Others have even suggested Weverse Live needs moderators to clear the spam and inappropriate comments so that the members wouldn’t have to see such.

Some ARMYs have taken the matter into their own hands and reported “Yoongi, marry me,” causing it to vanish from the comments of the members’ recent live broadcasts.
The amount of "Yoongi Marry Me" comments disappearing before I can even report them is very pleasing to me.

Similarly, it’s been recommended that concert-goers swap out their “Yoongi, marry me” signs for meaningful messages for Suga, especially since his discography is so personal.
instead of the yoongi marry me signs i wanna see people coming with this to his tour concerts because it's so fcking true pic.twitter.com/L5njf4Eb53

Regardless of all these efforts to retire “Yoongi, marry me,” does the man in question actually hold disdain for it? Quite the contrary.
Not only has Suga responded to the meme sweetly multiple times, but he recently revealed that he holds “Yoongi, marry me” in high regard. During Apple Music Present, he was asked what his “favorite or most memorable nickname” for himself was given to him by ARMY. Rather than choose a nickname, he mentioned, “Yoongi, marry me.”

What’s is your favorite or most memorable nickname from Army? #SUGA : it’s not really a nickname but that so many people like to say "Yoongi Marry Me"
Look at his shy awkward smile after lmaooo 😭😆 pic.twitter.com/hXPMkXRVsf
