But new group BTS (bangtan sonyeondan or Bangtan Boys) are making a huge wave on Korea and the rest of the world.

Rap Monster (Kim Namjoon) the Leader

Kim Namjoon

Kim Namjoon

Jin (Kim Seokjin)

Suga (Min Yoongi)

J-Hope (Jung Hoseok)

Jimin (Park Jimin)

V (Kim Taehyung)

Jungkook (Jeon Jungkook)

They're also not afraid to be Cute

Or Funny / weird

And Sure as hell arent afraid of being sexy

But apart from their stunning looks, they have some real talent:

All except for one member has contributed to the production and writing of the entire track list of the recent album WINGS.

Their latest album, WINGS, has broken a lot of records:


This album had them making it and it has done incredibly well. the music video for Blood, Sweat and Tears, the title track holds the record for most views on a k pop music video (you tube) in the first 24 hours (6.34 million views) and the first to reach 10 million views (41 hours). It also had the highest first day sales for a k pop group album (141 603) and made BTS the first k pop group to have three albums on the billboard top 200 chart.

Apart form breaking records, they are also receiving awards:

they have received over 50 awards since they debuted in 2013, from varying countries, including getting the main or Daesang award this year for their album the Most Beautiful Moment in Life pt 2.

Not only do they earn all the awards but they give good and strong messages:

랩몬스터입니다. 동성애에 관한 노래. 가사를 모르고 그냥 들어도 좋지만 가사를 보고 들으면 두배는 더 좋은 노래. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - Same Love 추천합니다.


the translation is: "It's Rap Monster. A song about homosexuality. I heard this song before but I didn't know the lyrics, now I know them and I like the song twice as much. I recommend Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - Same Love."

BTS is a rarity in k pop since their songs speak about the pressure from society on the youth, produce/ write their own songs, talk about mental health which is still taboo in Korea, but also have a female empowerment song, talk about their own struggles and one has publicly shown support for gay rights, which still aren't present in Korea.

Also, not only are they awesome together, they are awesome indivudually
