Can I write an essay about the K-pop group BTS?
I've been a fan of BTS for a few years now, and being a fan has affected my life in a lot of different ways, by expanding my worldview and helping me meet a lot of new people. I met a girl from Belgium with the exact same birthday as me, and we've been friends ever since. She is a different religion and I've learned a lot about her beliefs. I met someone at a concert who has very different political views than me, but we debate it openly and are still good friends because of the common ground of BTS. I feel like a lot of people consider BTS and k-pop to be superficial, so does the angle of the people I've met through the group and their effect on me sound like a good essay topic?10 replies
