In K-Pop, companies impose specific standards and expectations on idols to maintain this perfect image. One of those restrictions many idols face is not cursing and, although it can be difficult, most seem to manage it.
One group that recently threw caution to the wind with that rule was BTS. The group recently performed the first date of their PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE concert at SoFi Stadium in LA. It was a huge event for both ARMYs and BTS as it was the first concert in front of fans since before the pandemic.
The group took over social media with ARMYs sharing moments from the concert and making fans worldwide extremely jealous. It was definitely a night to remember, from Jungkook being shirtless to performing tracks for the first time in front of fans.

With all the adrenaline and excitement from the sold-out 70,000 crowds, it was no surprise that the members were just as excited as ARMYs. As the show got into full swing, leader RM was getting the crowd pumped and shouted, “Make some motherf*cking noise!”

If that wasn’t enough, the other members seemed to have a new sense of freedom and adrenaline during the show. BTS moved through the crowd at one point, showcasing just how big they’d gone with the show’s theatrics and staging.
Jungkook wanted to get the audience involved even more and shouted, “Say hell yeah!” Although many don’t see it as a true curse word, it isn’t something that many idols say, and it definitely made Jungkook seem even hotter, if that was even possible.

Even as the show ended, BTS proved that they were living their best life and nothing was going to ruin the moment. During the closing comments, V spoke about how he was injured during their previous online concert and how being on stage made him happy even though he couldn’t perform at 3000%.
However, it was what he said before that had fans worldwide screaming. He started the speech by saying, “Sorry ARMY, sorry BTS… holy sh*t.” As those words left his mouth, it was met with screams from the crowd.

Although all the members are adults, in the world of K-Pop, this sort of cursing isn’t something that fans really expect. After the clips were shared, “Sorry BTS” was trending worldwide, and fans couldn’t get enough of the members throwing caution to the wind and basically just enjoying themselves.
Notes I've taken from the concert:
RM: "Make some motherfcking noise" and "put your motherfcking hands up"
V: "Sorry ARMYs, sorry BTS.. HOLY SHT..damn!"
YES BROOO! LET'S GOO😂😎

With three more dates of the concert to go, including a live stream for fans unable to attend the date, who knows what other shenanigans and sides of BTS ARMYs will see. Also, with leader RM giving spoilers about a possible world tour, it will hopefully be sooner rather than later when all fans get to witness this tour live!
