BTS just joined on TikTok, and they already have 1 million followers.
“#BTS TikTok Channel Open!” the K-pop group’s official Twitter announced on Wednesday.
Their username on the short-form video sharing app is @bts_official_bighit. A few hours upon joining, BTS uploaded their first-ever TikTok video, featuring the group posing while “Boy With Luv” plays in the background. It has since been liked over two million times.
“First video uploaded!” the band wrote on Twitter.

A second video was uploaded hours later and was received with similar excitement from ARMY by receiving millions of views.
Some BTS fans are crediting–or blaming, rather–Jungkook, one of the group’s members, for the decision to finally move over to TikTok.
“How much did Jungkook pay you?” a Twitter user questioned BTS’ account.

Others are just excited to see more of the group, even if it means having to download yet another app.
“Y’all really gonna make me download tiktok, the things I do for love,” another user lamented.
