Two of K-pop’s strongest fan armies of the moment, each of the boy bands has dedicated online fanbases: BTS took home the Top Social Artist award at this year’s BBMAs, while EXO’s brand-new Twitter account set off a flurry of millions of impressions earlier this month ahead of the release of their new single "Ko Ko Bop."
Both EXO and BTS are heavyweights in K-pop when it comes to the U.S: Not only did each act hold solo Stateside tours this year, but their albums have also charted extremely well. EXO’s newly released The War spent several days at No. 2 on the U.S iTunes album chart this week, while BTS’ Wings became the highest-ranked Korean album on the Billboard 200 last October when it debuted at No. 26.
There are still a few days left for EXO-Ls and ARMYs to vote their fave into the second round of the Fan Army Face-Off 2017. Voting for the first round closes July 26, so head over to the bracket and vote now!
