They’ve got ARMY right behind them when they say so.
BTS is an award-winning chart-topping K-pop group with an international fan base known as the BTS ARMY. There’s even an official fan club for the boy band, complete with added perks and exclusive merchandise for subscribers.
Here’s what we know about BTS’ official global fan club, how to join, and how much it costs.
BTS has an official fan club available on Weverse
The BTS ARMY is one of the world’s most powerful fan bases, supporting BTS in collaboration with McDonald’s and streaming songs like “Butter” and “Dynamite.” There’s also an official fan club dedicated to supporting this K-pop group.
To join, ARMYs need a Weverse account, both for the app and for the Weverse shop. Fans also need a PayPal account, as this fan club charges a monthly fee to enjoy the perks, including a mobile membership card. From the Weverse app, fans have the options to choose from different “tiers” of the official fan club.
How much does a membership to the BTS fan club cost?
The prices of these memberships vary based on the tier, as some subscription options have added perks. However, according to Elite Daily, it’s “$22-$150 for the cost of membership, depending on which package you choose.”
These membership options come with perks beyond merch in the Weverse shop, each tier featuring special add-ons. With a regular membership, subscribers can view exclusive content featuring the BTS members, including pictures and videos, posted to Weverse.
These fans have access to select pre-sale codes for BTS concerts, meaning these are the ARMYs with access to the best seats to see the K-pop group. There are also opportunities to apply for or participate in online and offline special BTS events.
The “ARMY Membership: Merch Pack” comes with all of the regular goodies, in addition to select products held specifically for these subscribers, sent out four times per year. This fan club is available for joins across the globe to join.
The BTS ARMY is one of the world’s biggest fan bases
Outside of the official fan club, members of the BTS ARMY often support this K-pop group. That includes celebrating the birthdays of the idols and even supporting organizations in honor of the boy band.
The BTS ARMY is also known for breaking YouTube records. The music video for BTS’ song, “Butter,” broke the record for the most-viewed YouTube music video in 24 hours with 108,200,000 views.
The “Boy With Luv” music video is available on YouTube. Music by BTS, including their recently released album, Map of the Soul: 7, is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and most major platforms.
