What is Bangtan Web?
Bangtan Web is a fansite community, founded in January 2023, dedicated to the k-pop group BTS. We offer all the latest BTS content, with daily updates on the latest news, photos, videos and more, all in one place.
Idea & Conception
The idea for Bangtan Web came to us from "social media fatigue." BTS (and the individual members) release A LOT of content on daily basis, and keep tracking of all that can be exhausting. From Weverse to Twitter, Instragram to Facebook, we would get overwhelmed whenever we would look up the latest BTS news.
Thus, Bangtan Web was born: a website where fans could get all the latest news, all in one place. Bangtan Web relieves the stress of social media fatigue, and also gives those fans who aren't connected to social media a chance to catch up on all things BTS.

Launch & Growth
Bangtan Web was originally thought to be a small fansite that could find it's home on a shared hosting platform.
We underestimated the power of ARMY, who subseqeuntly crashed Bangtan Web days before it's official launch.
Bangtan Web now hosts itself, on a scalable cloud server that ensures any influx in traffic can be handled without the need for downtime or site errors.
As of November 2023, Bangtan Web has amassed over 15,000 followers across Twitter & Facebook, and is visited by thousands of fans on a daily basis. Our photogallery, Bangtan Pictures, has grown to be the largest BTS photo archive on the web, with over 85,000 photos and over 6 million views since it's launch.
Everyday we are both amazed and overwhelmed at the amount of support we receive from ARMY. As Bangtan Web continues to grow, we hope we become your daily source of BTS content for many years to come!
