This week's featured article
House of Cards is a popular Jeon Jungkook/Kim Taehyung/Park Jimin BTS fanfic by sugamins, also known as valentinosuga, who later orphaned the work. It is a gangster AU with a warning for graphic depictions of violence, an aspect of the story which has garnered controversy along with the explicit sex scenes. Nevertheless, House of Cards is often recced by fans for its plot and deep dive into the psychological perspective of its characters. Fans of the fic have created a great deal of fanwork for the fic, including art, vids and fanmixes.
The fic is the most popular BTS fanwork on AO3 by hit count, having reached 1.57 million hits by the beginning of 2022, and the third most popular by kudos and this count as well as the over 33,000 kudos, 3,800 comments, and 9,200 bookmarks continues to grow. It was updated every Sunday from 27 November 2015 to 22 May 2016 with a planned Yoonmin sequel that was eventually abandoned by the author in response to backlash regarding the story's depictions of explicit and violent content, as well as shippers being unhappy with the ending of the fic.
