No this is NOT a dream this is in fact REAL life! 😇 Big Hit just like with the Jimmy Kimmel Live news has now gone on to confirm an Ellen Show appearance too… And at this point I don’t really think we should be surprised by these things anymore. Since I’m so sure these stories are still only the the tip of the iceberg. I say this because the label could have easily waited another day or two to drop this since there is enough out there to keep us busy for now. What this tells me is that there is much more news for them to drop. Maybe I am looking too deep into things but doesn’t it seem that way? 😛
That is why I think we ARMYs need to accept something right at this very moment. What do you ask? Well I believe we need to embrace the simple fact that breaking news is from here on out about to become a common occurrence in our fandom, for many weeks to come and who knows maybe indefinitely for the foreseeable future at least. But either way, whether you agree or think I’m nuts let’s get back to the actual news.
For those who haven’t kept up and don’t know what’s up, here is the basic time line. There was a rumor going around that BTS would appear on the Ellen Show that had ARMYs world wide riled up. That is until a much bigger story dropped that began trending about how BTS would be performing at the AMAs(American Music Awards). Understandably so this suddenly became the big news on everyone’s radar overshadowing the previous rumor. However later when things settled a bit, much to our surprise Big Hit confirmed that not only had there been talks with Ellen‘s people they were in talks with other shows too!
This was the moment the Ellen stuff got put further back in the back burner for a sec while ARMYs then went, “what other shows are you talking to?” From there the speculation started to run rampant until out of nowhere we got news that a Jimmy Kimmel appearance was confirmed. Suddenly THAT was the BIG story. Specially when peeps found out it wasn’t a normal show appearance and that BTS would be there to be a part of Kimmel‘s on going mini concert series. And much like the previous concerts it meant, the tickets would be FREE!!! So everybody rushed over to the website as you can imagine, me included to try to get one. Did I? Nope unfortunately because turns out they were out before I had even woken up that morning. 😭But I’m sure you peeps don’t care about that so let’s continue. 😐😅
What happened next was the big surprise that inspired this post. Yup that’s correct The Ellen Show finally being confirmed too..not even a full day after the Kimmel announcement may I add! And sure ARMYs kinda expected it for the longest time but it doesn’t make it any less awesome or impactful. Cuz it’s gonna be all kinds of hype to see the positivity of BTS mesh with the lighthearted humor of Ellen. I expect a pleasant experience for all to be had. Though I’m sure many like myself genuinely thought this news would drop at least a few more days apart since we were still recovering from the last bombshell weren’t we? But I guess Big Hit really be enjoying all this attention. 😆 lol
So yup there you have the basic gist of it all. And I say basic gist because in the middle of all this there have been other stories that I didn’t even get a chance to get to. Like how the boys were announced to be releasing a re-mix of MIC drop in a collab with Desiigner and Steve Aoki next week!!. Or How their DNA MV hit a new milestone by getting over 3 million likes. OR better yet how they’ve managed to stay on the Billboards Hot 200 Chart for a record 6 weeks already. Yeah so much stuff one could cover huh?
What about you peeps? What do you think about this latest development? Are you like me and have you TOO resigned to the fact that BTS breaking the internet is gonna be commonplace going forward? Let me know down below. ☺
#Extra- If you stopped by this and haven’t heard of BTS before here is a bop to start you on your journey. It’s called Dope.
