BTS have been named as one of TIME's 100 Most Influential People of 2019.

The list from the esteemed magazine includes 100 people they consider to be "pioneers, leaders, titans, artists and icons" globally. Many celebrities feature in the list, like Ariana Grande, Rami Malek, Sandra Oh and Brie Larson

BTS' description was written by Halsey, who recently collaborated on "Boy With Luv" with BTS, and has been known as a friend of the group for some time now. In her note she wrote: "Behind those three letters are seven astounding young men who believe that music is stronger than the barriers of language. It's a universal dialect".

She also praised the philosophy behind their songs, their brotherhood and charitable endeavours. You can read her full message here.
