Make It Right (Remix) Feat. Lauv (English Translation) Lyrics

BTSCrossing over to film, Burn The Stage: The Movie was released in theaters worldwide on November 15, 2018. In the United States it accumulated $1.2 million on opening day for a total of $3.54 million over the three day weekend, breaking the record for for highest grossing event cinema musical production which was previously set in 2014 by the band One Direction. It ranked at number ten in the box office despite selling at only 620 locations compared to the 2,000-4,000 locations for the other top ten sellers.

Add in merchandising ($130 million worth of books, T-shirts, cosmetics, jewelry, dolls and other branded memorabilia — eBay Korea currently features 40,000 BTS-related products — sold every year), tourism dollars and other revenue generators, the BTS ecosystem is so enormous, it accounts for $4.65 billion of South Korea’s GDP. That’s enough to put it in the same league as Samsung and Hyundai.

Now that’s truly something unseen in recent years. As time pass, their album sales can’t stop climbing. Their last album Map of the Soul: Persona already sold the same as The Greatest Showman during 2018, which was easily enough to make it the greatest seller globally for the year.

The entire Wings era was incredibly successful with many album track topping 180,000 sales. In total, songs of the extended version of the record add for 8 million units.


Although K-pop fandom has recently reeled from the fallout of the Burning Sun scandal (a prostitution and secret-camera ring that took down several K-pop stars), BTS’ stadium tour showed the genre in its best light. All the ebullience was PG-rated: According to Pasadena police, there were only two arrests the entire night at the show. One person was nicked for operating a drone, another for selling bootleg merch outside the stadium, police said. The Rose Bowl beer vendors, usually slammed at a sold-out show like this, were all but abandoned.

K-pop has quickly been growing in popularity in a number of countries all around the world, which for many years were resistant to many styles of music that weren’t performed in English. Now, thankfully, things are changing, and more artists chart more and more hits, and while there are still several months to go before 2020 arrives, 2019 has already become the biggest year for the genre in Canada in one important way.

Take James Corden, for example, who drew some ire for pandering to fans. Worse still were those American interviewers who had done no research and asked often patronizing, uninformed questions—such as Do you dance?” when they’re known for it. It has been tough for Army to watch wafer-thin interviews, conducted by people who barely know (and certainly don’t care) about their boys, only the attention they might bring; in many ways, they have been treated as an Asian novelty.

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.

In 2010, Bang began to assemble a group of teens for a group he called the Bulletproof Boy Scouts. This would go on to become Bangtan Boys, then BTS, but the ingredients of their success were inherent in the original name. Bang intended bulletproof” to function as a celebration of the kids’ toughness and ability to withstand the pressures of the world. But he also wanted the band to be able to be sincere and genuine — not immaculate idols groomed amid studio culture, but real boys who shared their authentic personalities and talents with the world.

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.

Kpop band BTS and Lauve have collaborated on a new single titled ‘Make It Right.’ The much-awaited music video features footage from BTS’ concerts while a heartwarming romantic animated love story between a young boy and girl forms the parallel narrative.

Gaon charts are about units manufactured in South Korea, no matter where they are sold. BTS’ label produces all their copies in the SK itself (there has been some minor versions of them in Japan and Taiwan), so their Gaon numbers represent the global sales of these albums. It’s all about physical copies though, there is still need to add global downloads to them, which is why figures from the article are always a bit higher.

The adoring fans known as the BTS Army descended en masse onto the Rose Bowl Saturday to show their love for the K-pop superstars. The boy band performed in front of a sell-out crowd at King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh on Friday evening.BTS

BTS’ manager Big Hit Entertainment said in a statement that the record-breaking K-pop band would “enjoy their daily lives as normal 20-something young men, albeit briefly,” for the first time since they entered the music scene in 2013.

Again, they’re by no means the first band to do this: Boy bands in both Korea and Japan have spent decades being marketed with homoerotic appeal , and normal interactions between Korean men can read as transgressive of heteromasculine norms in English-language cultures. One Direction notoriously followed in the wake of these many groups by practicing a similar transgressive physical intimacy; in that fandom, Larry Stylinson shippers in particular essentially codified for the ARMY how to micro-analyze body language, onstage and off.

On October 14, 2018 they performed at the Korea-France Friendship Concert in Paris, a summit meant to show the friendly relations between France and South Korea. Around 400 officials attended the meeting, including South Korean president Moon Jae-in.

One 2018 study, from the South Korean consulting firm Hyundai Research Institute, estimated that BTS alone was worth $3.6 billion to the South Korean economy and that 1 in every 13 tourists to South Korea in 2017 cited BTS as a reason for their trip.

The last act to their “school trilogy”, Skool Luv Affair (2014) topped the Gaon Chart and sold over 200,000 copies. It also peaked at number three on Billboard’s World Albums Chart. The album was supported by the singles “Boy in Luv” (Korean: 상남자; RR: Sang-namja) and ” Just One Day ” (Korean: 하루만; RR: Haruman). That June, BTS participated as judges for a K-pop cover dance competition in the Bridge to Korea festival in Russia, an event that aimed to promote tourism between the two countries, where they also performed on stage. In August, the group also attended KCON in Los Angeles. That same month, they released their first Korean studio album, Dark & Wild , which peaked at number two on the Gaon Chart and sold over 200,000 copies. It was supported by two singles: ” Danger ” and ” War of Hormone ” (Korean: 호르몬 전쟁, RR: Horeumon Jeonjaeng).

An estimated 52,000 fans — from preteens to bemused dads, many Asian American but also Latino, black and white — wound along the Rose Bowl grass. Some had camped out for days to save their spots.

Following their philanthropic efforts in their Love Myself anti-violence campaign in partnership with UNICEF, BTS addressed the United Nations 73rd General Assembly and became the youngest ever recipients of the Order of Cultural Merit from the President of South Korea due to their contributions in spreading Korean culture and language.

If these topics sound angsty, it’s not without national precedent. There’s a unique melancholic sentiment to be found in Korean culture, which goes by the name of “Han”.

The group’s debut single album 2 Cool 4 Skool , the first installment in their “school trilogy” series, was released simultaneously with its lead single ” No More Dream ” on June 12, 2013. While the album peaked at number five on the Gaon Album Chart and sold over 105,000 copies, “No More Dream” and the subsequent single ” We Are Bulletproof Pt.2 ” were not major hits. Expanding their endeavors into Japan, ” No More Dream ” was later re-recorded in Japanese and released on June 4, 2014.

The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Part 1 and Part 2 were later combined into the The Most Beautiful Moment in Life: Young Forever (2016) edition, and was supported by three singles: the top 40 hit ” Epilogue: Young Forever “, the top 10 hit ” Fire ” (Korean: 불타오르네; RR: Bultaoreune), and the top 20 hit ” Save Me “. A two-day concert at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena in Seoul was held in May to support the album, followed by their Asia tour. The group also headlined both US KCON shows held that year in New Jersey (June) and Los Angeles (July), to sold out audiences. Young Forever later won Album of the Year at the year-end Melon Music Awards, becoming the group’s first major grand prize (daesang).

On their tour around town, BTS is accosted by a cameraman outside a famous hot dog stand near Hollywood. The footage later goes viral and rumors quickly spread that the band canceled a meet and greet” for no reason. Of course, the truth is that there never was a meet and greet, but rather a private photo shoot with this magazine: The owner had signed a standard agreement, part of which stipulated the event would be closed to the public. Eventually, we learn that the day before, the stand’s Twitter account shared the exact time the band would be arriving and encouraged fans to come.

By these parameters, BTS has reached the top. Over the past few years, the K-pop group has taken the music industry by storm—shattering sales records, gathering accolades and performing across the globe for head-spinning audiences—all the while remaining exemplary ambassadors for their Korean culture. But behind those three letters are seven astounding young men who believe that music is stronger than the barriers of language. It’s a universal dialect.

BTS V Wins the title of “KOREAN MOST HANDSOME & BEAUTIFUL 2019” proving his uncontested Visuals. Video footage from the concert shows thousands of fans singing along to BTS’ music and lighting up the stadium with lanterns and their mobile phones.

Formed by producer Bang Si Hyuk, the septet’s lineup includes RM (Kim Namjoon), team leader and rapper; Jin (Kim Seokjin), singer; Suga (Min Yoongi), rapper; J-Hope (Jung Hoseok), rapper and choreographer; Jimin Park, singer and choreographer; V (Kim Taehyung), singer; and Jungkook Jeon, singer, rapper, and choreographer. In addition to production and composition, the members of BTS also write their own lyrics, which tackle topics like mental health, self-acceptance, and empowerment. With their youthful blend of club-worthy dance anthems, stirring love ballads, and aggressive rapping, BTS connected with a devoted fan base (dubbed “ARMY”) and set themselves apart from the K-pop industrial machine when they debuted in 2013 with the first installment of their “School Trilogy” series, 2 Cool 4 Skool. A few months later, they released the second EP of the saga, !RUL8,2? The trilogy was completed with Skool Luv Affair, which was released around Valentine’s Day in 2014.

12 different K-pop songs have reached the Canadian Hot 100 in 2019, more than in any other year. 2018 was the biggest year for the genre until recently, as three new tracks from some of the biggest names in the field have reached the tally in the past month, upping the count to over 10 tracks in a single year for the first time in history.

Their Japanese studio album, Wake Up (2014), released that December, peaking at number three on the weekly Oricon Albums Chart and selling 25,000 copies. Along with re-recorded Japanese versions of older songs, it also contained the original tracks ” Wake Up ” and ” The Stars “. Their first concert tour, 2014 BTS Live Trilogy Episode II: The Red Bullet , was held from October to December.

But why was BTS the band that finally broke through the culture barrier overseas to make significant waves in the US? The answer lies in a combination of factors, and most of them are about change: the changing nature of K-pop’s studio culture and the way idols” are produced; changing depictions of masculinity in South Korea; changing ranges of acceptable expression in K-pop; and, above all, the approach BTS has taken to building its fan base and interacting with its fans.


By now, everything there is to know about BTS has come out in interviews. BTS stands for Bangtan Sonyeondan, or Bulletproof Boy Scouts; last summer, as their U.S. visibility grew, they added the meaning Beyond the Scene. The seven-member boy band debuted in 2013 through Big Hit Entertainment, a Seoul-based entertainment company that has been a smaller player. Initially, their music took more from rap and hip-hop. In 2015, they shifted direction and began to attract international attention with high-energy dance tracks (Dope”) and EDM torch songs (Save Me”), but Big Hit remained focused on Asia (this editor attempted to shoot the band that summer, but was rebuffed).

As usual, I’ll be using the Commensurate Sales to Popularity Concept in order to relevantly gauge their results. This concept will not only bring you sales information for all BTS albums, physical and download singles, as well as audio and video streaming. In fact, it will also determine their true popularity.

They obviously have no signature song with both DNA and Fake Love being less than 20,000 EAS apart from streams. The former is bigger in both main Asian countries, South Korea and Japan, while the latter dominates abroad.

The entire Wings era was incredibly successful with many album track topping 180,000 sales. In total, songs of the extended version of the record add for 8 million units.
