BTS ARMY lines New York’s Central Park ahead of morning performance

The fans of the K-Pop seven-member band lined New York’s Central Park Tuesday (May 14) on the eve of a performance for ABC’S “Good Morning America” to take place in the park.

The band is performing in the show’s, “2019 Summer Concert Series.”

BTS ‘ARMYs,’ as the band’s supporters are known, were armed with tarps, tents and umbrellas as they spread out along the sidewalks of several city blocks on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

Some of the fans have been in place since Sunday. The past few days have been nasty with darkness and showers in the New York area.

Fans of the band known for the “Love Yourself” tour are taking to heart the band’s message of uplift.

“They’re so talented like they speak about real life issues and they make us love ourselves,” 18-year old fan, Daniella, told Reuters. “Whenever we have an issue. We listen to their music. So they help a lot with a lot of issues we have going on. Personally or whatever we have. They’re always there to help.”

BTS, who have been together since 2013, have gained a worldwide following, winning over fans across continents and helping popularize a music genre further afield from Asia.

Last year, BTS became the first K-pop performers to have a no.1 album on the Billboard 200 with “Love Yourself: Tear” and they made UK chart history soon after by becoming the first K-pop group to have a Top 40 single in the British charts.
