BTS is a Korean music band created by Big Hit Entertainment. It debuted in 2013 with the album “2 Cool 4 Skool.” There are seven boys in the band, whose names are RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, V, Jimin and Jungkook.
BTS is setting remarkable new trends in the music industry. It is a complete band with dancers, singers, composers, and writers.
It is one of the biggest K-pop bands that have hit the international charts. It has released six studio albums up till now. It has been in the music industry for 5 years. BTS has gained a lot of popularity among the young generation around the world.
Its fanbase is growing each day, who wants to know more about their favorite Korean boy band. The following are the most commonly asked questions about BTS. Let’s have a look!
Bangtan Sonyeondan is a Korean term that means “Bulletproof Boy Scouts.” Now, most people must be curious to know why the band would have such a name. The reason is that the band aims to break stereotypes and look beyond criticisms. It wants to explore new ideas and encourage the youth to break free from social norms.
The band also recently announced that BTS would now also be an acronym for “Beyond the Scene.” This means that BTS wants to look beyond the reality and move forward.
BTS mainly sings in Korean but also includes English and Japanese in some of its songs. It uses English to rap in some of its songs and also sings a few verses in English. The band also translates its songs into Japanese for its Japanese listeners.
The very first song created by the band we know today is “No More Dream.” It was released on 12 June 2013. This was the lead song from its debut album “2 Cool 4 Skool,” which had a total of nine tracks.
The members of BTS used to live in a dormitory in Gangnam but officially moved to Hannam the Hill at the beginning of December 2017. It is said to be one of the most expensive apartment complexes in Seoul, South Korea. This move has been attributed to their need for privacy and security.
As discussed earlier, the group has a total of seven boys. Namjoon, also known as RM or Rap Monster, is the leader among them. He was the first one to join BTS through Big Hit Entertainment. The members of BTS were different at the time, but most of them left. However, Namjoon stayed, who worked hard for the band. He only used to rap before BTS, but to boost the band, he learned dancing too.
Namjoon is said to be the most dedicated member of the group. According to his bandmates, he is in the studio for producing music all the time. Sometimes, he does not even sleep at night just to improve the band. He also writes lyrics for the songs. That is why Namjoon is the leader of BTS.
Yes, Jungkook can speak Japanese. Since the band translates its songs into Japanese and Jungkook is the main vocalist, he needs to know Japanese. However, Namjoon is more fluent in Japanese than Jungkook. For BTS, Japanese is a language that is easy to learn after Korean when it comes to speaking and singing.
BTS does not know English fluently. The most fluent English speaker in the band is Namjoon. Other members are also trying to improve their English as they travel a lot to the US and have a fan following in the US as well. V, Jimin and Jin are confident enough to speak English, whereas the rest of the members can only understand the language and sometimes try to respond to their English-speaking fans.
The last member to join BTS was Jimin. He joined the band in late 2012 or in early 2013 as a lead dancer and singer. He did not require much training as compared to the other members of the band as he was already an amazing dancer and an outstanding singer.
ARMY here means “Adorable Representative MC Youth.” BTS calls its fans ARMY. This term is used for its supporters because it wants its fans to support, defend and stand by them.
The quantity of BTS’ ARMY can be identified by the votes it got for the Billboard Music Awards for the Top Social Artist award in 2017. It got a total of 300 million votes, which shows how huge the BTS ARMY is and how far its fan following has reached.
On 5 May 2015, BTS received its first-ever number-one win in the South Korean music show, “SBS The Show” with its third mini-album, called “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Part 1.” The band has gained a great many other awards after this win.
All in all, BTS has come a long way from where it first started. The boys are doing a great job at such a young age. In 5 years, they have gained a considerable number of awards, a fair amount of appreciation and plenty of love from its ARMY fanbase. However, this is just the start of their career and there is a lot more to come their way.
BTS is doing better day by day, and its fan following is also increasing with every comeback. They now know how to stay in the top music charts.
K-pop is a term that is often used on the internet, and there is quite a popular fan following around the world. This ‘once local, now global’ phenomenon has an interesting background as to how it all began, but before that, what is K-pop anyways? K-pop is short for Korean pop or Korean popular music,...
