The Rhizomatic Revolution Review  (R³) was born because we believe BTS and ARMY deserve their own academic discussion, which can provide valuable insights and conclusions, not only for the understanding of music, pop culture, and fandoms, but also of a diverse range of topics.
Inspired by BTS’s message of inclusivity, we created a multimedia, online, open-access, peer-reviewed journal to document discussions (through academic research, storytelling and creative works) on the art, fandom, economic effects, and sociocultural forces generated by BTS and ARMY.
R³’s Editorial and Advisory Boards, as well as our team of reviewers, managing editors, copyeditors, and marketing staff, is made of volunteers from many countries, ages, and academic backgrounds. We speak different languages and have different stories. What links us together is a love and drive for creating an inclusive platform that will make sure BTS and ARMY’s contribution can be of use in academic spaces.
