The game contains hours of all-new footage of the band and involves receiving texts and recorded video calls from the band members, but a quick peek on Twitter showed that the ARMY was not expecting the level of difficulty and communication required by the game.
Stanning doesn’t even begin to describe the loyalty, dedication, and earned obsession exhibited by fans of the South Korean boy group — which makes the release of mobile game BTS World one of the most exciting moments in current fan culture.
It’s not as hard as actually managing the band in real life, so at least their real manager Sejin is probably getting a kick out of this. manager sejin watching all of us struggle w virtual bts pic. twitter.
Fans were a little frustrated on Twitter with the mechanics and the fact that the boys kind of hate their new manager straight out the gate, but whoever said "never meet your heroes" obviously didn’t idolize these boys.
Frustration aside, it looks like the BTS ARMY is locked into playing BTS World, even if it means working extra hard to make sure the boys don’t tear each other (or their new manager) apart before they even have their first performance.
The actual, current name of the band. im pissed, wHAT MAKES NAMJOON, YOONGI, AND HOSEOK THINK THAT THEY CAN ARGUE ABOUT HAVING BANGTAN BOYS AS THEIR GROUP NAME??
In the game, which is created by Netmarble studios, the player takes on the role of BTS’s manager, who is magically transported into the past and tasked with guiding Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook on the path to becoming BTS and achieving superstardom.
