BTS members are always likened to anime characters. Seeing that BTS themselves love anime, they have talked about their favourite anime, renacted anime phrases, used anome references in some of their lyrics, I’m sure they would not mind being compared to anime characters. BTS have dressed up as anime characters for halloween and SUGA was once likened to the anime character Levi Ackerman after the release of his “Daechwita” sword dance practice.
After the release of BTS’S 1st Group Teaser Photo, ARMY Weebs (lovers of anime) started associating BTS’S Jungkook with Eren because of his hairdo which is tied in a ponytail and the look that Jungkook gives off in the photo. Anime lovers are obsessed with how the Jungkoom and Eren’s looks are too similar. As a result “Eren” is trending worldwide with over 90K Tweets!
Eren Jaeger, is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Attack on Titan manga series created by Hajime Isayama. Eren is a teenager who swears revenge on enormous creatures known as Titans that devoured his mother and destroyed his town in the Shiganshina district in Wall Maria.
In order to defeat the Titans, Eren enlists in the Military and join the Survey Corps—an elite group of soldiers who fight Titans outside the walls and also study the physiology of Titans in order to know what they are fighting. As the story progresses, Eren gains the power of becoming a Titan later identified as “Attack Titan” (進撃の巨人, Shingeki no Kyojin).
Eren uses this power to give Humanity an advantage to defeat their enemies while learning of their true identity and their own history. He has also appeared in other related media including anime and video games.
Do you think the resemblance is similar or are fans of both stretching it a bit?
“Butter” will be released on 21st May 2021.
