You are asked if you ever heard of BTS, it is difficult to say no! Even if you don’t understand Korean, their music sticks in your head, and your feet naturally begin swaying to their beat. Whether it’s their legendary ‘Dynamite’ or the super-hot ‘Permission to Dance’, BTS has always graced us with dynamic choreography, creative and conceptual look-and-feel and oh yes, energizing music.

The seven-member boy band from South Korea has experienced the greatest musical heights since their debut in 2013 with the album ‘2 kool 4 skool.’ Their popularity has only soared ever since! BTS is often considered a family full of incredible voices, almost sculpture-like handsomeness, and amusing habits, that makes their fans laugh as well as admire them for their hard work and persistence to dish out the best entertainment ever. It won't be misplaced to say that BTS introduced K-pop to the international audience in a refreshing way and took it to a whole new level.

And the admiration kept coming — Billboard Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards, The Asian Awards, American Music Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, and South Korea’s Melon Music Awards — The list keeps growing by the year and so does the ARMY!!

And if you are STILL wondering who this extremely talented bunch is, let us have the honour of introducing them to you:

Let's start with the name first!

The Acronym BTS initially stood for the Korean remark ‘Bangtan Sonyeondan’ which in English means ‘Bulletproof Boy Scouts’ or famously known as the ‘Bangtan Boys.’

Later in 2017, the group announced that they want to be known as ‘Beyond the Scenes’ universally. This serves justice to their name as their interaction with their fans is greater than any other artist in this world, showcasing their real-life outside the stage and studio.

BTS was bound to reach new heights with all of these incredibly skilled members, and they did! Collaborating with World-famous artists like Hasley in ‘Boy With Luv’, Megan Thee Stallion in ‘Butter’, Charlie Puth in ‘Fake Love’, Nicki Minaj in ‘Idol’, Lauv in ‘Make It Right’, and the much-awaited recently released collaboration ‘My Universe’ with Coldplay, BTS now could write a book on ‘how to break records every time you release a song.’

From being number one on the Billboard 100 charts for ‘Dynamite’ to being the most viewed song on Youtube in the first 24 hours, or being the first Korean group to perform with ‘Lil Nas X’ on ‘Old Town Road’ at the Grammy’s in 2020, their list of accomplishments just continues to grow.

Can it ever happen if BTS is mentioned and the ARMY doesn't come up?

The main reason for BTS’s success is the ever-growing fanbase, which they refer to as the ‘BTS ARMY.’ Their social media presence is unrivalled, and their ARMYs are fiercely loyal to their K-pop idols. BTS have always made their fans a part of their success. Their fans are more than simply a fanbase group; they have influenced their ARMYs to share compassion and positivity. During the Covid-19 outbreak, ARMYs over the world raised millions of dollars to aid those in need.

Partnering with UNICEF, BTS has launched campaigns like ‘Love Yourself’ in order to spread awareness about mental health. Recently, BTS performed at the UN General Assembly on their ‘Permission To Dance’ while speaking about the need to adopt sustainable choices and save Planet Earth. This is what makes BTS stand apart from other artists as they use their influence and power over their fans to speak about issues that matter.
