BTSBig Hit Entertainment has issued an official response to rumors that one of the BTS members will be enlisting in the military this year. It stands for the Korean expression Bangtan Sonyeondan, which literally translates to Bulletproof Boy Scouts” (another nod to the group’s social awareness and efforts to combat oppressive expectations facing today’s youths). BTS is also referred to as the Bangtan Boys.

Then again, not everything about BTS is a phenomenon. Understanding its rise to the top also means acknowledging that it’s not alone in its class: It’s succeeded and grown alongside other bands that are also innovating and reaching new levels of international success. Collectively, this K-pop generation is rapidly changing the conversation and pushing the limits of what K-pop is allowed to be.

Songs such as ‘SPINE BREAKER‘ and ‘DOPE‘ including social message based on real problems in Korean society get interests from not only Korean fans but also foreign fans around the world. From foreign fans, they received lots of questions about the reason why they write lyrics about deep social things rather than things related to love, party, and beauty like other idol groups. Likewise, BTS always has been earnest and serious about their music.

BTS is turning into world star as spending 6 months in a year touring abroad and the only continent they have never conquered is Africa. Now, they became not only Korean celebrities, while receiving tremendous amount of interest all around the world. As you know already, BTS won the prize at billboard music awards on May 21 as the first winner that takes place of Justin Bieber. For that fact, they got attention internationally. Then, what makes BTS so different from other groups in Korea? K-Popmap listed 5 points of BTS.

On October 21, the South Korean quintet — made up of Yeonjun, Beomgyu, Soobin, Taehyun and Huening Kai — unveiled their heavy brand new era complete with a full album, music video, and comeback stage with a hidden BTS tribute.

In 2012, Rolling Stone published a list of the 10 K-pop bands most likely to make it big in the US. Achieving significant US fame was a newly attainable, if still distant, milestone for South Korean pop groups thanks to the 2000s’ tremendous exporting of South Korean culture overseas — a trend known as Hallyu, the Korean Wave. Rolling Stone’s list, which appeared two months before Psy’s Gangnam Style,” included groups like Big Bang, Girls’ Generation, and 2NE1 — the greatest bands of what’s generally thought of as the second generation” of pop groups to emerge during K-pop’s rise to international prominence.

So together, on the new Make It Right,” they’ve released a song that naturally speaks to both fandoms — and particularly to the powerful force that is BTS’s ARMY. To top it off, the music video that came along with the release is a sweet love letter to those fans. It intersperses footage of the septet performing on their recent world tour in front of their many thousands of supporters with an animated fairy-tale narrative, in which a lost boy battles a dragon and is saved with the help of a magical female character that’s been by his side all along.

K-pop was conceived in South Korea in the 1990s as a Western-Asian hybrid and is now a multi-million dollar industry with many bands winning audiences around the globe.

And, as Stephen noted, BTS’s international success has been landmark, even if it’s been built on giant shoulders. Is it groundbreaking? Definitely not. But they definitely raised the bar for K-pop.” And that validates fans’ enthusiasm in a major way.

Social media plays a major role in BTS picking up steam over the years, as the band — which also holds the Guinness world record for the most Twitter engagements, besting former One Directioner Harry Styles — presents a keen understanding of how to meaningfully connect with audiences beyond lyrics. They post video diaries and interact with fans on Twitter. ARMY members even translate BTS’s Korean-language television appearances for fans in other parts of the world to enjoy.

Their dedicated fan base helps here too since a solid share of these sales were actually exports to plenty of places from around the world. Overall the band is up to 3.16 million units sold in this format, not something you’d expect from an artist debuting in 2013.

The international BTS fandom has worked to mainstream K-pop as few other factors have. On Tumblr, the internet’s unofficial home for fandom communities, BTS and its members reign supreme, recalling the vast reach of One Direction in its heyday. In April 2018, Tumblr decided to stop breaking out K-pop as a separate category in its popular weekly Fandom Metrics, an official Tumblr product that measures the popularity of fandoms and related subtopics across the site. By merging K-pop with English-language groups, the account could more accurately reflect the relative popularity of K-pop bands to their Western counterparts.

Wings, through its original version, its reissue, heavy usage on music videos, stunning downloads plus a consistent and massive streaming performance, breaks through the sky with a total of 6.7 million.

RM often writes music and uses his platform for causes he cares about. Before joining BTS, RM helped write the pro-LGBTQ song Party (XXO)” for GLAM. A great deal of BTS’s music focuses on mental health and learning to love oneself. In BTS’s docu-series Bring the Soul, RM describes his struggles of learning to love himself and acts as an inspiration for fans.

BTS released a video titled “LOVE YOURSELF Tear ‘Singularity’ Comeback Trailer” on May 6 at midnight KST in advance of the release Love Yourself: Tear on May 18. The video features V as the solo vocalist for the track, his second solo track for the group and first as an album intro track singer. Within one hour and 29 minutes of its release, the music video reached 1 million likes on YouTube, making it the fastest BTS video to reach this milestone.

The list is compiled in album equivalent sales generated by each song. Therefore, these figures are not merged units of singles formats. Instead, it includes weighted sales of the song’s physical single, download, ringtone and streaming as well as its share among sales of all albums on which it is featured.

But to Stephen, the real lesson of BTS’s success isn’t about the band’s ability to transcend the norms of K-pop; it’s about K-pop’s rapid ascension into the mainstream.


BTS fans have always been open about how much love the band and being a part of the ARMY. As BTS returns from their short hiatus and continue on this incredible trajectory that they’ve made for themselves over the past couple of years, BTS fans thought it would be super cute to thank the band for all the hard work that they have put into their music and all of their other projects, while also paving the way for other K-Pop bands along the way.

BTS’ has cited Nas, Eminem, Kanye West, Drake, Post Malone, and Charlie Puth as musical inspirations. BTS has also cited Queen as an influence, saying they “grew up watching videos of Live Aid.” During their concert at Wembley Stadium in London, Jin paid tribute to Queen by leading the crowd in a version of Freddie Mercury’s “ay-oh” chant from the band’s Live Aid concert.

BTS is currently taking a break from music. The group announced a hiatus in August to which their fanbase responded respectfully. All focus seemed to be on the mental and physical health of the performers, who said the break was to allow them to be normal people, not celebrities, for a while.

Their members are RM, Suga, Jin, Jimin, Jungkook, J-Hope and V. The former is their leader but they are all active vocalists and provide artistic input as well. They are all in their 20s.
