Within minutes after the post, hashtags such as #BTS_Dynamite, #방탄소년단, and more began trending on Twitter.
With fans excited for the new release, some fans took it even further and began to find theories as to the reason why this single was titled ‘dynamite’. One fans’ theory was so crazy it totally blew the minds of ARMYs.
The fan posted, “The wick on the ARMY bombs have been getting shorter and shorter with each new release. The bomb explodes when all of the wick gets burned. This is exactly what a dynamite is. The ARMY bomb’s wick burns up and explodes.”
아미밤 위에 있던 심지가 지금 점점 짧아졌잖아
폭탄은 심지가 다 타들어가면 터지잖아
그게 바로 다이너마이트인거지
아미밤 심지가 다 타들어가서 폭발하는거야

“Then the ARMY bomb bursts like a dynamite and maybe there is a connection with the beads that are inside the bomb?”
그러면 거기 다이너마이트랑 같이 터지고 미밤이 안에 구슬이랑 무슨 관련있는거 아닐까유
