BigHit Music has announced the cancellation of BTS‘s originally planned concert for BTS MAP OF THE SOUL due to complications resulting from COVID-19.
Here are 10+ devasting ARMY reactions to the canceled tour…
1. No words

2. Bright side of things?
call this one the bangtan stimulus check

3. Mad respect to BTS though
Stan a group that wants you ALIVE. Other artists recklessly performed at Lollapalooza, endangering the entire US. BTS said "no, we're still in a pandemic, and we value our fans' well being." Imagine the strength of will that took considering they haven't performed since 2019 pic.twitter.com/wgPmHQ9k15

So many western artists have been taking the most risks, partying every weekend, never wearing their masks, performing at clubs and festivals with 100k people in the audience. While bangtan have always been sooo careful respecting every rule and telling us to be safe

4. For a lot of us, the possibilities of MOTS was our hope
the MOTS shows were never going to be *just concerts,* but after the year and a half we've all been through, they came to signify so much more, i think. friendship. community. joy. the possibility of a future reclaimed. hope.

6. We would have kept those tickets for an entire lifetime
i would’ve held onto my tickets for a lifetime. MOTS deserved everything pic.twitter.com/z665LbdXau

I would have rather held onto my tickets indefinitely… MOTS ticket holders are now up against a fan base that grew by the millions with lockdown, butter and ptd. Fml.

7. In our times of struggle, RM always comes speaking words of wisdom
"We are literally strong, the Armys I know and the BTS yall know, we are all strong. We'll find a way, we always have. If there's no way, let's draw the map, the whole map again, so no worries"

8. We hope that the members are okay
I hope the members and everyone is okay though 😭 it’s okay to be sad and disappointed but remember that “no darkness, no season can last forever,” please stay safe and healthy! 💜 pic.twitter.com/gEGLMMizNi

9. When you realize the reason why BTS keep doing virtual events and lives…
What if they knew of the news a little ways back and that’s why they’ve all went on live to chat with us. The zoom event as well. Doing things to lessen the blow maybe 💜

11. Doing the right thing hurts sometimes
It’s the right thing to do. And sometimes it hurts doing the right thing. Sometimes it really hurts.

17. We will wait for BTS
“I miss you. Wait a little bit, just a few more nights, I’ll be there to see you,
I’ll come for you. Pass the end of winter's cold until the spring day comes again, until the flowers bloom again
Please stay, please stay there a little longer”
