ARMY is the name given to the worldwide K-pop fanclub of K-pop group BTS. It stands for Adorable Representative MC for the Youth. In Korean, the name is 아미. It holds special meaning since the word "army" is associated with the military and body armor, which goes along with BTS's larger concept of being protectors and speakers for today's youth.
ARMY is known for its international collaboration in humanitarian causes like environmental clean up, tree planting, and school building.
It was officially established on July 9, 2013 with the first recruitment under BigHit Entertainment.
