YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie‘ Kjellberg claimed that BTS fans “are the most insane on the planet” while watching a documentary about one of the Korean band’s most obsessed followers.
BTS is one of the most popular KPOP groups in Korea, and making their debut in 2013 , they have amassed a loyal fan base from around the world that is intensely dedicated to them.
PewDiePie demonstrated this during his January 11 upload, when he reacted to a fan that had taken his obsession to the next level by using plastic surgery to look like member of the band Jimin.
PewDiePie reacts to obsessed BTS fan
The popular YouTuber was watching a video about a BTS fan who spent over $150,000 to look Korean, and confessed, “You know I’m not gonna lie. I had the KPOP bug bite me too. But I think you know, there is a limit to everything. My God!”
He was astonished by the fan’s admission that KPOP idols are “manufactured” to be perfect, and yet still wanted to emulate that. “Yeah, that’s the whole thing, it’s all manufactured. They all do surgery in Korea. It’s all just companies producing these stars like out of a treadmill,” he said.

Pewds then exclaimed that BTS fans are crazy. “I wonder what the BTS stans think of this guy,” he said. “Because they are the most insane people on the planet!” Although, he was quick to clarify that, “Not everyone. But some of them are. That’s pretty fair.”

While he specified it wasn’t all of the BTS Army, the Swede has faced the wrath of KPOP lovers before. During his January 4 edition of PewNews, the YouTuber revealed that fans became upset that he ranked second on a ‘100 Most Handsome Faces of 2019’ list.
“People were really upset that their favorite KPOP stan didn’t make it to the list, so they used me as the ugly example!” he explained, as he showed tweets that were comparing his face to a famous Korean musician.
The 30-year-old, amused with his placement on the list, shouted, “suck it KPOP stans!” BTS member Jungkook ultimately took the number one spot on the list, just one place ahead of the YouTube star.

Despite claiming some BTS fans to be intense, PewDiePie has been a fan of the Korean band in the past, mentioning them in numerous videos, and following them on social media.
The Swede announced in December 2019 that he would be taking a short break from creating content on the video platform, and has surely earned the vacation, reaching 102 million subscribers late last year.
