Bangtan Sonyeondan popularly known as BTS, they are the biggest boyband in the whole of universe right now and there is no doubt in it. BTS, a seven member boy band debuted in 2013 under Big Hit Entertainment consists of RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook. . It is a band that co -  writes and co – produces their own music, although originally a hip – hop group, their musical style has evolved over years and has now included wide range of genres, however they themselves have become a genre of their own now. Their lyrics focus on various themes like coming of age, social commentary, mental health, troubles at school and many more. 

Titled as ‘Princes of the Pop’ and ‘Next Generation Leaders’, BTS is literally dominating the world right now, with their sensational choreography and soothing music. And BTS is so huge that it alone brings in more than 8, 00,000 tourists in South Korea every year due to their enormous fan following and charisma.

BTS was not always this huge, they were a band that had debuted under a small entertainment company unlike BLACKPINK and Big Bang under YG Entertainment. When debuted, their first concert in America only consisted of 600 people, which was also performed for free but with continuous hard work and determination, they now sell out the whole Rose Bowl Stadium within ten minutes for their concert and the ticket priced a few hundred dollars. 

BTS also enjoys a huge fan base/fandom popularly known as A.R.M.Y (which stands for Adorable Representative MC for Youth). And one of the interesting facts about A.R.M.Y is that it is one of the world’s largest fandom ever. BTS’s A.R.M.Y is not just the world’s largest fandom ever but also one of the strongest fan base ever. It is so strong that in the year 2020 it helped BTS break their own world records with the release of their new and first ever English single ‘Dynamite’, which also helped the band create an additional 7 more Guinness world records. Following the success of Dynamite, BTS also produced two other chartbusters like ‘Butter’ and ‘Permission To Dance’ which has also managed to add a few more Guinness World Record for the boys.

These seven guys from South Korea collectively known as BTS will never fail to amaze you with their hard work, soothing and healing music and groovy choreography. BTS is phenomenal but there is a reason behind it and that their immense hard work and never give up attitude. All the seven members RM, Jin, Suga, J – Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook have their own stories to tell, while still in their teenage, these guys were bullied, poor, rejected and laugh at by many of their peers and friends but today in their mid and late 20s they have made themselves a household name. They have A.R.M.Y from all over the world belonging to different age groups, race, caste, religion and countries but what brings them together is BTS’s music. 

And these boys always make sure to motivate their A.R.M.Ys through various videos, music and quotes of theirs, like their recent Music Video ‘Permission To Dance’ includes many steps that are nothing but sign languages that state ‘We don’t need permission to dance’, thus promoting that dancing is for anyone and everyone and for everyone to do that they don’t need anyone’s permission and BTS achieving a place in Guinness World Records Hall of Fame is truly an occasion for us A.R.M.Ys to dance. So let’s rejoice A.R.M.Ys and never give up because always remember to what they said,

“The only time you should look back, is to see how far you have come.”
