ARMY or A.R.M.Y is BTS’s official fandom name. It was officially established on July 9, 2013. “A.R.M.Y” stands for “Adorable Representative M.C. for Youth” and it carries quite some meaning behind it, given that “Army” is associated with the military, body armor, and how those two things are always together, the fandom name basically means that fans will always be together with BTS (from BTS Fandom).
Way to go ARMY! You guys are great just as your artist 🙂
