A tiny error on the part of one ARMY has led to a new fan war in the online K-pop world and it involves BTS and NCT, SM Entertainment’s 23 member boy group. BTS performed at the ‘Permission to Dance on Stage - Seoul’ concert over three days, from March 10 to March 13. Fans have been sharing many moments from the 3-day concert event on Twitter. Most images from the show have gone viral — be it the photo of Jungkook wearing a shirt with one button holding on for dear life or Jimin’s new crescent moon neck tattoo or J-Hope’s see-through shirt or Jin’s slicked-back hairstyle. Fans were having a gala time after having endured the members going on a break just before the Seoul concert.

One such photo shared online was a blurry photo of NCT’s leader Taeyong captured from the 2018 NCT 127 music video for the song, ‘Chain’. While the photo was extremely pixelated, the image showed the idol lifting his shirt up to reveal his chiseled abs. One ARMY thought the photo was of BTS' Suga and went feral, posting the picture with the caption: “What the f*ck Yoongi,” addressing the BTS rapper by his birth name, Min Yoongi.

NCTzens say, ‘imagine not knowing your faves’

This one moment of confusion was enough for fans of NCT to start calling out ARMYs for not knowing what their faves looked like. One fan also pointed out how some delusional fans were not willing to accept the fact that the photo was of Taeyong and would go on to believe it was a picture of Suga instead. The fan said, “18k likes? are armies that d*mb to not even recognize their fav? oh my god this is beyond embarrassing.” Another fan said, “They really want their fave to be taeyong so bad.” One more fan said, “'his name is now min yoongi' do not do my man lee taeyong like that!”

Another fan clarified the situation, saying, “An army mistook a taeyong picture as yoongi and then both sides started attacking each other and insulting both ty and yoongi.” An NCTzen snarked, “Imagine not knowing what your own favs look like.” Another fan said, “Lmaoo that's not yoongi that's taeyong.” One more fan said, “Hello but the last one is not yoongi but lee taeyong from nct.” Another said, “AND NOT Y'ALL NOT EVEN RECOGNISING YOUR FAV HAHAHHAA. And even when y'all found out it wasn't yoongi y'all weren't ready to accept it. I mean I get it who wouldn't want their faves to look like THE LEE TAEYONG.”

ARMYs say ‘Superhuman who? We only know Super Tuna’

The fandom banter was getting so out of hand that one fan of NCT even claimed that BTS Jin was wearing an outfit worn by NCT 127's members for their concept photos for the song, ‘Superhuman’ from their 2019 album, ‘We Are Superhuman’. The NCT fan used a solo photo of BTS Jin with the caption, “Superhuman” and a now-deleted reply to the tweet with a photo of NCT 127 in similar white outfits captioning it, “The Blueprint”. This comment sent BTS fans in a frenzy claiming they had not even heard of the NCT 127 song and only knew of Jin’s latest viral single, ‘Super Tuna’

One fan said, “Ain't no one know superhuman. We only know Super Tuna.” Another fan responded, “When SUPER TUNA is stronger than Superhuman! No hate to the artist but the so called fan should think about it twice before opening their trashy mouths.” One more fan said, “Superhuman? we only know super tuna” One fan said, “Jin alone outsold everyone. King behaviour.” Another fan said, “Indeed Kim Seokjin is a superhuman, the other argument you're trying to make nowhere tobe fund after seeing the pics.”
