      You know what ARMY'S I being an exo l really like exo but I do love bts too....... But whenever I read your hate comments regarding exo I start hating bts.titles like "untalented rats " whom are you giving if exo are untalented rats then I believe bts is no better than them..

      Start respecting other idol groups too, plz its a humble request don't pass hate comments on any social networking sites as this builds up more hates towards other idol groups .

      BTS save my life because each member is having trouble in their life and I have been bullied a bunch of times and my family is fighting for my rights. Without BTS my life would be more dangerous but know their here for me and everyone out there. One day as I'm going to be 10 this summer I chosen not to get toys but I wanted to get BTS stuff, One day if I get all the money that I collect I could go to south korea and meet all of them and give them each letters and tell them about my life and how hard life is through. My bias J-hope and Jin well be there and there leader Rap monster telling them they are not alone they are with there fans,friends.family and A.R.M.Y so I love BTS so much and no matter what their well be and know life for each and one of them waiting for somebody to listen to them and tell how they feel today and everyday

      Well i think all kpop groups are amazing... I'm an Army and BTS is the band that that got me into kpop and has grounded me... I love bts not just for their visuals charms voices and dancing but for their awkwardness their childish playing around and their love for us army...

      Got7 is really amazing too.. I especially love the evil maknae things because omo theirs adorable...

      I recently heard Seventeen and DANG THEY ARE LIT!! like i said.. All groups are amazing... Seventeen are phenomenal too hearteu~

      And thus I'm a proud army as well as a loyal carat ♥

      Thumbs up to all groups for their hardwork and dedication and love to us and music

      i mean bts has been popular only since 2016 so for like 2-3 years and they can not be called legends nor kings when thers groups like tvxq or big bang so CHILL out guys there's a long way to go(I DONT WANT FANWARS PLEASE)

      AND AS I MENTIONED BEFORE LOVE LOVE EXO you guys are my number one in my heart NOW AND FOREVER

      Bts dragged me into k-pop music last year but to be honest it is big bang who is ruling my heart. We can't judge any band on how many award they have won, big bang level is just too high to rich for any other k-pop band. Just listen to their songs n u guys will know what m talking about. #king of k-pop.

      EXO are the legendaries because since their debut until now, they were able to remain their fame. And I do believe that they are the best of the bests because of the awards, achievements and the break records they have. Some people might not know them but if you will just try to know them, you will love them because of their good personalities, charms and talents.

      for me, there's no list in having the best k-pop groups because it doesn't really matter to people who are loyal with their biases. of course, they do become popular in each day because of us but there's no best in all the best because they are all the best! they do what will attract and entertain us, and that is a hard work to do, so thanks to k-pops, we become inspired because of them!!

      saranghaeyo everyone!

      good luck and GOD bless to SVT!!! love lots!!
