BTS made history this year by becoming the first K-pop group ever to be nominated for a Billboard Music Award (BBMA), and then broke another record by becoming the first K-pop group ever to WIN a BBMA. The boys beat huge celebrities, like Justin Bieber, to win the Top Social Artist Award at the 2017 BBMAs on May 21, 2017.
So, if you haven't jumped on the BTS train then maybe the list below will convince you to join the ARMY fandom (you know you want to). Or, if you're already on it, let your friends know...
1. They have amazing music
Since their debut they've released quality music that's topped charts not only in South Korea but world-wide. They're most recent album WINGS was No.1 on the iTunes Album charts in 27 countries (and counting).
2. They write and produce their own music
BTS are heavily involved in the composition and lryical content of their music. Between the members they have a shared total of over 40 lyric credits, proving they are more than just your usual idol group.
3. They are hilarious
4. They're not afraid to show their love for other K-pop artists
It's true! BTS loves idols just as much as we love them. Some of our favourite fancams of BTS are of them cheering on their fellow K-pop colleagues.
5. They have a huge fandom called #ARMY
Believe it or not, #ARMY is one of the largest world-wide fandom groups in K-pop. Army helped BTS reach a YouTube milestone by racking up 3 million views for their 'Blood, Sweat and Tears' music video in less than 12 hours.
6. Their famous in-sync dancing ability (not to be confused with NSYNC)
7. They love their fans so much they dedicated a song to them
BTS featured the official fan song 'Two! Three! (Still wishing there will better days)' on their new album "WINGS." They thank the fans for all their support most especially during their hardest times. When J-Hope says, "thanks for being my light, for the flowers in Hwa Yang Yeon Hwa." OH THE FEELS!
