@KTChannel3 shared her attempt at memorizing the members, “When I was a baby ARMY, I honestly had the hardest time telling Yoongi & Jimin apart! I literally thought they were brothers or twins. Now, thinking about it, I wanna tell my past self ‘Um, excuse me! You need to get your eyes checked.” We agree that the struggle is real especially when you’re getting to know seven new people.

@_derpbts shared, “I thought that their stage names were their real names. So when I turned on [the] English subtitles and it said Hoseok or Namjoon, I was like...who?” Hard same!
If Korean isn’t your first language, it can get quite tricky but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be familiar in no time.
