If there’s anything you should know about the BTS ARMY, it’s that we’re a force to be reckoned with. We’re always inspired by Bangtan’s passion for music, relentless hard work, and dedication to their craft and artistry. Usually, we like to show our love and support through conventional ways like streaming their music, attending events, buying merch and whatnot. And most times, our dedication leads us and the boys to reach greater heights. Celebrate the boy’s ninth anniversary and upcoming comeback with your fellow ARMYs at these BTS coffee shops in the Philippines. I know you wouldn’t want to miss it for the world!
