Hey, guys! It's been a few months since quarantine, and I decided to share my story of how I became an ARMY. I will answer tag questions.

1. How long have you been a fan of BTS?
I've actually been a fan for a year.

2. How did you discover BTS?

I first discovered BTS last 2018 when my friends on Instagram have been talking about them (i.e. posting pictures of them, posting screenshots of their songs from Spotify). When I found out that they were visiting my hometown for summer 2018, I didn't know how I feel because I wasn't an ARMY yet. I was like, "Oh. That K-Pop group." I wanted to know about them, but I had different taste in music and I am a fan of other singers.

Then, it all started around October 2018. I saw Andree Bonifacio's dance cover of "Idol." When I heard the chorus of the song, I started searching up the song on YouTube. When I first listened to the song, I was fascinated. Then, I saw their dance video. I loved the choreography that it made me wanna dance to it, although I'm not good at dancing.

3. Why do you love BTS?

Easy! I love them because they taught me to love myself. Also, they are really kind, funny, and humble. They also inspire me to stay positive and to always do my best in everything.

4. Who was your first bias?

The GOLDEN Maknae, and my ultimate crush: Jeon Jungkook! He is actually the first member that I noticed and can easily recognize. When I searched for pictures of him, all I could do is just set it as my wallpaper.

5. Who is your current bias?

It's still Jungkook <3

6. Who is your bias wrecker?

I love them all, but if I were to choose one, probably Jin. Worldwide Handsome, you know? ;) He's the oldest member in BTS, while I, on the other hand, am usually the oldest among my group of friends.

7. What is your favorite BTS MV?

I have a lot of favorites, but if I were to choose one...Fake Love.

8. What is your favorite BTS choreography?

It's really hard to choose, but I would pick Go Go or Boy with Luv. The first dance video that I saw was Go Go. The first time I heard it was when my friend's class did this for the school's pep rally.

Then, I searched up the song. When I searched the dance video for that song, I noticed a thumbnail where they were wearing costumes. So I played it. When I watched it, I find it silly especially when V wore the Snow White costume.

And the dance video that almost made me an ARMY was Boy with Luv. When I watched the dance video, I was so fascinated that the song made me wanna dance. And again, I'm not good at dancing (lol). Then, I would always play this song on repeat.

9. How long did it take for you to learn all their names?

I'm not going to lie, but it took me two years to learn all their names. When I first heard about BTS, the first few names I know were Jimin, J-Hope, and Jungkook. Then, when I searched up about BTS, I saw the names of the members.

1) I use to think V and Taehyung, Suga and Yoongi, and RM and Namjoon were different people.
2) I always get mixed up with Jin and Jungkook.

In 2019, I knew all the members' names but I couldn't recognize who is who. (Well, except for Jungkook since he's my bias.) During quarantine, I decided to watch BTS. With that, I finally learned their names. I finally recognize who is who.

10. Top 5 BTS songs

In no particular order:
1) We are Bulletproof: Part 2
2) War of Hormone
3) Fake Love
4) Anpanman
5) Euphoria

11. Member you think you share most in common with

That's easy. I share a lot of things in common with Jungkook because:
1) We're both Virgos.
2) We're both shy before, but we're confident.
3) We're both black belts in taekwondo.
4) Both our favorite colors are black/red.
5) We can both sing.
6) We both love drawing.
7) We're both born in the 90's. (He's born in 1997, while I was born in 1999.)

12. Have you ever met BTS in real life?

As I mentioned in question #2, BTS went to my hometown last summer 2018 but I didn't get to see them. I didn't get to see them because I went to Philippines for a vacation (I wasn't an ARMY yet). But I wish I had the chance though.

13. Do you share a birthday with one of them?

No :( but my birthday is nine days before Jungkook's birthday.
