Fans celebrated BTS’s lyrics, with many sharing that their lyrics really touched them and cheered them up, which is what caused them to learn how to read and write in Hangul.
I learned Hangul because I wanted to sing @BTS_twt songs and fanchants, as the romanization always comes in English I needed to know the pronunciation in Spanish, that's why I write the songs and the Spanish pronunciation below🤓💜🥳#방탄때문에_한글배웠다 pic.twitter.com/Ek44U8UGhM

BTS really are the main reason why many people gained interest in studying Korean, including myself. Their impact truly goes beyond music and that in itself is an incredible achievement! #방탄때문에_한글배웠다 pic.twitter.com/oeQ2Gklp24

I was really never interested in Korean language, but then @BTS_twt happen.
Im slowly learning, and hopefully, one day I'll gain that confidence to write them a letter in Hangul. 😊💜#방탄때문에_한글배웠다 #한글날 #HangulDay pic.twitter.com/9gf7YZqUYi
