K-pop lovers are considered as one of the biggest fan armies in the world, and they usually go to any extent to prove why their favourite artiste is the best from the rest. The fans of K-pop boy bands BTS and Exo found themselves in a similar situation when they most recently they ended up clashing on the Internet over BTS’s member Jin and Exo’s member DO.

Even though Jin, whose full name is Kim Seok-jin and DO, whose real name is Doh Kyung-soo, are part of their respective groups, the comparison between their solo careers sparked a furore on Twitter. One DO fan said, “if you have to convince somebody that kyungsoo is a good singer they're already a lost cause it's beyond fanwars atp it's like arguing with a flat earther.” Another stated, “for me personally it's the audacity to compare anyone in the industry to kyungsoo.”

One fan posted, “korea is insane for having an idol actor like doh kyungsoo.” Another shared, “never thought I would see the day someone call kyungsoo untalented.” One Jin’s fan tweeted, “Kim Seok Jin's voice is so sweet like honey. Silver voice. #ourlovelyseokjin.” Another added, “Kim Seok Jin, your voice is Incredible, Amazing and Fascinating... You deserve to be respected.” One user commented, “Not at how y’all trended this Kyungsoo and Jin are both talented, unbothered kings focus on ur faves instead of starting unnecessary fan wars :)”
