To help ring in 2020, K-pop sensation BTS performed at Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, when they performed their hit songs "Make It Right" and "Boy with Luv."
Although they didn’t take the stage at Times Square until about 10:40, the band was trending on Twitter long before that in anticipation of their performance. And members of their fanbase, the ARMY, showed up in droves to support the Korean band, both in Times Square and online.
One fan in the New York City audience described an important fan symbol on camera. "These are ARMY light sticks — they represent our fandom," the fan said. "This specifically, just for BTS. So when we go to their concerts, they know that we’re here for them."
The Associated Press did a news package on ARMY members in the audience, which included a fan tearfully saying how much she appreciated BTS’s message of self-love. On fan commented on Twitter, "Im sure media was expecting answers like ‘i luv them cuz they’re so sexy and handsome, and their tattoos etc..’ instead they got a 4 pages essay on self love."
Fan account @USBTSARMY shared a message of appreciation with the band, saying, "CONGRATULATIONS BOYS!! ARMY are so unbelievably & incredibly proud to be your fans! Thank you for everything you’ve given us! You never cease to amaze us all! We are truly lucky to be living in the time of BTS!!"
