With their infectious rhythms, high-octane dance routines, and seemingly endless energy, 7-member K-pop band BTS—also known as the Bangtan Boys—became an immediate success after bursting onto the music scene in 2013. They’ve since released 2 Korean albums and 3 Japanese albums, with 2016’s Wings climbing to number 26 on the Billboard 200 chart, the highest a K-pop album has reached.
The band has been praised for shaking up the genre by mixing the traditional sound with lyrics that touch on deeper issues such as politics, mental health, and gender roles. On top of their commercial success, BTS has a massive presence on social media and even became the most-tweeted-about celebrity of 2017 with more than half a billion likes and retweets from around the world. Fans flock to grab tickets to see BTS live, as they never fail to put on an electrifying show. Created by the producers of South Korean company Bit Hit Entertainment, BTS was carefully formed through auditions over the course of 2 years. The group’s name is an acronym for the expression Bangtan Sonyeondan, meaning Bulletproof Boy Scouts, a name that’s said to have been chosen with the thought that the group would eschew the stereotypes and expectations put on young adults today. Made up of members Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook, the band has been traveling the globe since 2014, selling out shows to hundreds of thousands of fans.
The Bantan Boys have just announced 8 new stadium dates for their highly anticiapted world tour, LOVE YOURSELF: SPEAK YOURSELF. 3 of these new dates are in the United States, so BTS fans can sigh in relief.
