If the man himself Bangchan says that BTS paved the way who are we to decline that. Cuz these legends brought most of us to skz.

Along with the outpouring of love, there’s also some hate. It seems some fandom wars are going on between ARMYS and Stays. They have been calling out SKZ and Bang Chan. Check out the reactions below:
FUCK toxic armys for dragging bangchan and skz even after Chan tried his best to end all toxicity and fanwars…. BTS doesn’t deserve ppl like you in there Fandom… Just get the hell out…

The moment Bangchan said BTS paved the way, I know kpop stan gonna fight over this. For me as a fan from 1st gen, i think every generation has a group that representing that generation and they’re the one who paved bigger way for the current and next generation. So he’s right.

It’s actually really sad how STAYS are throwing hate towards BANG CHAN for showing love and respect towards BTS ” A STAY myself feels embarrassed” ??

Stays never cared about people’s feelings like… Why send death threats to someone who reposted bangchan saying “bts paved the way” like grow up there’s no reason to be mad about bangchan saying that (about to give up on calling myself a stay)
