The septet showed their gratitude on Twitter, writing, “Thank you to everyone who listened to and sympathized with our music during the difficult times. Above all, it is ARMYs who made the miracle of being a Grammy candidate. I always appreciate and love you. Thank you @RecordingAcad for this great honor!”
Member V and the ARMY have already begun reintroducing themselves with their new titles. V (real name: Kim Taehyung) already took to Weverse, the artist-to-fan platform for K-pop artists, to write, “Hello this is Grammy-nominated BTS Kim Taehyung,” according to multiple translations from Twitter.
And their fans have been flexing their favorite artists’ newest credentials by tweeting, “Why? do i look like a fan of an artist who got two number 1’s on the billboard this year, released multiple best selling albums and got nominated for a grammy?”
