The Armys see what they want to see. He got older and looks like he's on drugs.

He obviously looks waaay too older for his age even though he probably uses makeup... and his eyes are soo tired. The tattoo thing also alarmed me, especially when it was such a big mess of tattoos and the red eye....that was the cherry on the top. Ugh it is just sad...before and now, how the industry ruins you...

It's very sad how much his face has changed. It doesn't make sense that he looks like a 40 year old man at 23 years old. There's members that look younger and healthier. His lifestyle doesn't help and if he's on drugs or extreme dieting, that's going to make him look old. His tattoos are alarming to me too. What does the eyeball mean? If he'd stuck with the hand tattoos, it wouldn't be so bad.

I have two questions in my head after all these facts and speculations here- how can we persuade our friends (who are Army) about the true colour of the industry and BTS? It would be extremely hard, given how obsessed some fans are to make them understand that BTS is not all a goofy, cute and humble boyband. And also is there something that we can do to actually stop this or to limit it for future young boys and girls?

It's really hard since the fandom has been brainwashed for some time now. But we can start with the ones around us. If we straightaway accuse bt$ of being evil the fans get defensive and will never get on board. I think the best way is to take a toned-down approach and build it up step by step.

Well if you are loved that much you are going to have a big ego and treat people like crap! Isn't that what they call a DIVA and you see it in musicians as they get to the top but sadly baby Jungkook isn't a baby anymore. It kills me everytime I'm on YouTube and Army write stuff like he's soooo cute not knowing the dark side of him sad very sad

If you are TicToc they are exposing all this stuff! and more and more people are spreading it.

Ahhh now that I think about their new song and the attendance of kids there... At first I thought it was sweet but now I am terrified about them....

He was very handsome back then. His face is different like he's malnourished, exhausted and on drugs. He had a lot of energy for one in the morning. They're working them constantly with interviews, meetings, performances and lives. There's new content almost daily. This is strange to me because I'm used to Western artists going months or years between recordings and tours.
Agreed to all. They never go on vacation and there is way too much content being made in a short amount of time. Jk did his live at 1:00A.M. and V has often gone on weverse at 3 in the morning. When do they rest?! To be able to go at this pace it would have to be drugs. They were once seen by paparazzi leaving a building at 3 A.M in separate cars, finally finishing their work for day. When these photos were released so many armys were praising them saying, "our boys work so hard." It's actually sick.

Also, I found this pic online and I don't know who the guy on the left is. I guess he's famous but he looks to be in his 40s and jk does have a striking resemblance to him at only 23. Crazy!IMG_20210731_085056.jpg

oh

no wonder his ego is so huge

he must get off to the fact that people admire him this much.
He must! I've also noticed bh/hype have been releasing individual content of the members lately. This is the same company that's always enforced the ot7 or nothing nonsense. So why the sudden change? What are they up to? Someone pointed out that they have been making each member go live this comeback as well. And with the lives and all other content you can see who which member gets the most and least views. Obviously jk gets the most, but I wonder if bh is trying to see where each member stands in popularity with the fandom.

Yeah I don't think it's photoshop. He gets those deep wrinkles when he smiles and he has fine lines around his eyes all the time. He looks way older than his age and I think at times he gets fillers to appear youthful again. He's overworked and it shows.

They're beta testing to see who should go solo and put out more projects. Like their mental illness concept, that started as a survey. The top lives are JK, Tae and Jm. Fans don't care about ot7 but give it mouth service.

The life is being sucked out of them. He looks like an old man but he's still very young. He shouldn't look like that.
This is a very good observation! It is sad that most people not only believe at everything that is told about BTS ( their hardships, how they got to the top "despite" everything and such glorifying stories) and don't actually think if it is true or not...Also, it seems that BTS's biggest lawyers are the fans...who mostly don't know who or why they even protect...
Their fans buy their origin story, but it's not true. Their company had money, connections and the ability to make them famous. It wasn't by chance.

There were also two other points that I didn't quite enjoy while I was "consuming" their content- the fact that fans often looked at them in forums, websites in a very sexual way "shipping" them and praising everything that they could see. After that, I realized that they always talk about being humble and no exposing body parts, but from the beginning, there is no such thing- first I believe mostly Jimin did it but after that the exposure becomes more often and reached more members. Why do they do that when they know that some of their fans are minors.... Is this not leading to the same effect as other subliminal sexual content in media? It is awful...
