10.Suffice it to say, BTS is BIG on the internet. They hold a Guiness World Record for their Twitter fandom, and Time Magazine named BTS on their list of the most influential people on the internet.
11.South Korea's president, Moon Jae-in, happens to be a big fan of BTS. Just take a look at his Twitter!!!
12.President Moon even wrote a letter to the band, explaining what he loves about them: "At the very heart of BTS’s outstanding dancing and singing is sincerity. This magical power turns grief into hope and differences into similarity."
13.It's a BTS tradition to drop "dance practice" videos for their songs on YouTube. The videos show them rehearsing their choreography so that fans can learn it, too. These videos get millions upon millions of hits — it's wild!
14.BTS also uses their platform to do a whole lot of good. They've spoken out about LGBTQ rights and mental health, and they've made some big donations to help kids in need.
15.So, let's talk about world records, because BTS has broken a LOT of them. For example, they're the first K-pop group to perform at an American awards show.
16.Their music video "FAKE LOVE" had the BIGGEST debut on YouTube in all of 2018, garnering 35.9 million views in its first 24 hours online.
17.They're also the first K-pop group to win a Billboard Music Award, beating out Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez for the prize.
18.Okay, so you might be wondering why the heck you've heard so much about these guys over the past few weeks. Well, they just released their latest album, Love Yourself: Tear.
19.And fun fact: it's already the first K-pop album to reach #1 on the Billboard 200 chart!!!
So DO YOURSELF A FAVOR and start listening to their music. If it's good enough for Tyra, it's good enough for you.
