K-Pop fandoms are more than just groups of people who like the same music. They are communities that truly support and care for each other, as the BTS ARMY’s support for an ARMY who received a heart transplant demonstrates.
Children’s Hospital LA recently tweeted about one of their patients, Genesis, who was waiting to have heart transplant surgery. After her care team learned that Genesis is a BTS fan, they started dancing to “Dynamite.”
What do you get when you turn the wait for a #heart #transplant into a dance party? Smiles—a roomful of them.
After learning that Genesis was a huge fan of the K-pop band BTS, her care team began grooving to her favorite @bts_bighit song, “Dynamite.” @BTS_twt @BTSW_official pic.twitter.com/J4IaObaxFg

In the video Children’s Hospital LA shared on Twitter, the care team clapped and danced along to “Dynamite” as Genesis watched.
After the hospital tweeted the video, ARMYs replied to the tweet to send words of encouragement to Genesis.
I love this, a dance party is a great way to ease the stress of an upcoming surgery 💃🕺
Best wishes to Genesis for a successful transplant & speedy recovery! 💜💜💜
Thanks ChildrensLA team for being “Dynamite”!💜💜💜
