The Hottest Global Artists Right Now-BTS

BTS Bangtan boys is a male seven-member group under BigHit Entertainment that debuted in 2013 with “No More Dream”

Korean pop music or Kpop as it is generally called has evolved into a genre of its own. Billions of “Kpoppers” around the world are part of several fandoms that originated in South Korea’s music industry. The Kpop group making headlines worldwide these days is BTS (Bangtan Sonyeondan/ Bangtan Boys meaning Bulletproof Boy Scouts). An inside joke is that many people think BTS stands for “behind the scenes” when they hear it. This was also pointed out in the recent global hit, “Who’s It Gonna Be?” by BgA, which is a parody of Kpop groups formed as a joke by popular YouTubers.

Bangtan Sonyeondan is a male seven-member group under BigHit Entertainment that debuted in 2013 with “No More Dream”. Since then they have released six albums including studio albums and compilation albums, chart topping singles, developed their own reality shows and won the hearts of fans with their incredible music videos and stage performances. BTS consists of Rapmonster (leader/ rapper), Jin (visual/ vocal), Suga (rapper), J-Hope (main dancer), Jimin (vocal/dancer), V (vocal/dancer) and Jungkook (main vocal/dancer). They take part in writing, composing, producing and choreographing their songs.

All in their twenties, they have achieved tremendous success in South Korea and overseas at a very young age. Besides winning numerous awards in music shows and events, they won their first prestigious Daesang (Best Album of the Year) at the Melon Music Awards in 2016 for their album, “Hwayangyeonhwa: Young Forever”. They are currently in the middle of their Live Trilogy Episode III (Final Chapter): The Wings Tour. They started from their home ground and moved on to South America, where they have a giant fan base. Their next stop was the U.S. where their five shows were sold out in minutes attesting to their popularity in the West. They will return to Asia to continue their world tour then go to Japan after performing in Australia.

BTS, with their sold out shows, relatable music, jaw-dropping choreography and dedicated fandom called ARMY have broken many records of previous South Korean artists as they soar higher. They are one Kpop group the world just cannot get enough of.
