Meghan Trainor is the latest star to enlist in BTS‘s fan ARMY, but her connection to the K-Pop industry runs deeper than that. Meghan doesn’t just love K-Pop songs… she used to write them!
In an interview with Metro, Meghan said, “I love everything about K-Pop! My friend was a superstar there. He was this American boy from LA and K-Pop loved him!”
She was told that her compositions were too “cheesy and poppy” for singers like Rihanna, but they found a place in the K-Pop world.
Meghan named BTS as her favorite K-Pop group, calling them “the One Direction of K-Pop”.
Some fans are not happy with the comparison, however, and feel that Meghan’s love for BTS is insincere.
Sorry @Meghan_Trainor but you are not really army. If you were, you would understand all the hard work these 7 men put into becoming BTS. Not the ‘kpop version of 1D’. You just minimized them down to merely an Asian copy of a western group by saying what you did. You are not army

While others are hoping to hear a BTS x Meghan Trainor collaboration in the near future.
“I’m down for working with them! You think I’m not down? I’m down! BTS, hit me up!“
