BigHit Entertainment CEO and executive producer Bang Si Hyuk has been listed as one of Billboard's 2019 International Power Players for the second consecutive year.

The list gathers executives in different music sectors who are driving the industry's success outside of the USA. Bang Si Hyuk was featured under the recording category for his role in getting BTS to the top of the Billboard Artist 100 and Billboard 200 charts, as well as organising sold-out arena and stadium tours worldwide.

In the Billboard article, he is quoted with saying BTS' most significant moment of the past year was their UN speech, stating: "BTS worked very hard to deliver their message, put together in their own words. It was a symbolic moment where the artists' life itself was a performance, a message of hope to the youth all around the world".
