During the broadcast, the BTS members talked about their upcoming album, which was announced earlier this year. Members were given responsibility of different parts of the album’s production as project managers.

BTS also revealed that while the album won’t be out until later in the second half of the year, they are still releasing a brand new digital single on August 21, and is described as a “fun summer song with lyrics in English.”

Here’s more, via Forbes: “According to the conversation between the seven members during their livestream, they felt the ‘upbeat’ single could offer a ‘breakthrough’ and good energy to those around the world who are affected by the current situation—referring to the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic. Member V shared that the demo track was originally in English and the band themselves felt the lyrics ‘sounded perfect’ as is, marking what very well could be the first time the full group performs on an all-English track. This would follow their Steve Aoki collaboration ‘Waste It on Me’ that was officially credited to BTS as a full group, but did not feature vocals from every member.”

They also revealed that they’ve already completed the album art filming for the upcoming project. Their agency, Big Hit Entertainment, then confirmed the news as well.

The members of the group are all so busy, and many of them are in graduate school. Find out what they’re each studying!

The agency also confirmed that Jin is also currently attending Hanyang Cyber University, while Jungkook is attending Global Cyber University with a major in Broadcasting and Entertainment.

“The members’ enrollment in graduate school is not a matter related to their military service, and they entered the university because they are all interested in learning,” they went on to clarify.

Jin graduated from Konkuk University with a major in Film Studies, while RM, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin and V graduated from Global Cyber University with a Broadcasting and Entertainment major.

Charlie Puth Calls Out Fandoms For 'Dangerous, Toxic' Stan Culture

Charlie Puth called out BTS fans over the weekend for rude comments directed at him on TikTok.

Here’s how the controversy started: Some fans of the K-pop boy band accused him of trying to piggyback off the group’s popularity for his own gain on social media platforms.

After seeing the comments, Charlie went onto shut down toxic negativity.

“I don’t usually pay any mind to things like this, but something has to be said. This dangerous, toxic, internet screaming match between ‘fandoms’ has to stop,” Charlie wrote in a series of thoughtful tweets. “I’m 28 years old, so it doesn’t really mean anything to me when some person I don’t know writes a nasty message to me saying things like ‘I used BTS for clout.’ I don’t know what that means- I love those guys and they are super talented.”

During his series of tweets, one BTS fan apologized on behalf of the fandom, saying that those fans don’t reflect what the Army is about.

“ARMY please understand being rude is not the solution! I know we’re kinda hurt and confused but let’s stop spreading hatred! This looks so immature please let’s stop and move on. Let’s just focus on our favs instead of trying to drag him please,” they wrote.
