Shrishti Kalwar (Mumbai, Maharashtra), Smiti Iyer (New Delhi), and Madhavi Sutar (Kolhapur, Maharashtra): On 13th June 2021, BTS completed 8 years of their journey in the musical industry. In order to celebrate this occasion, the group organised their 6th Muster, an annual fan-meeting event that marks their anniversary; at Jamsil Stadium, also known as the Seoul Olympic Stadium on 13th & 14th June. The word Muster means an assembly of troops, referring to the meeting between the Bulletproof Boys and their A.R.M.Y (fandom of BTS). The event marked the end of their two week long celebration known as Festa. This year, the fan-meeting event was conducted virtually and was streamed on the online platform due to the pandemic and included diverse elements such as ARMY Signal, ARMY in Echo, and ARMY on Air to connect with the fans.

Nanaki Singh, Delhi: Since time immemorial, music has always been one of the ways to alleviate the stress, as well as, it has played an important role in uniting people across boundaries. That being said, as a BTS ARMY, recently I experienced something unique which I was lucky enough to be able to witness during this quarantine. This experience was attending Bang Bang Con on the 18th and 19th of April 2020.
