PewDiePie has signalled that his competition with T-Series is not over yet: he may have lost the battle, but not the Great Subscribers War – even though the Indian music label is now ahead of the Swedish YouTuber by over 26,000 followers.
Pewds, who has just proclaimed himself #1 BTS Stan, shared a gif featuring one of the seven members of the K-pop boy band – Min Yoon-gi, better known by his stage name Suga – and the BTS ARMY is flabbergasted, to put it mildly.

T-Series saw a massive surge in subscribers after Indian actress Monalisa, whose real name is Antara Biswas, encouraged her 1.7-million-strong army of followers on Instagram to follow the Indian record and movie label:
“It’s so exciting to know that T-Series is on the brink of becoming the biggest YouTube channel in the world! Congratulations T-Series – let’s all subscribe to ensure Bharat wins YouTube”.
It remains to be seen whether PewDiePie will succeed in winning back his title as the most subscribed YouTuber, which he held for over six years. Pewds has briefly lost his number-one status several times, but managed to make tremendous comebacks.
The Swedish YouTuber resorted to somewhat drastic measures this week in a bid to retain his title and expand his fanbase by unfollowing everyone on Twitter, except BTS.
The desperate move was made after Pewds came under fire when an Australian gunman, who killed 50 Muslims in a shooting attack on two mosques in New Zealand, urged people to subscribe to PewDiePie during a Facebook livestream of the massacre.
