BTS World domination is undoubtedly the biggest phenomena this decade. Their achievemnets can only maybe be likened to very few past and present artists. Their worldwide wave in music has been on the rise with each new album or song. They released their latest Album “BE” that is already seeing its own share of immense success, only days after its release. BTS didn’t plan for world domination, it just happened, as Jin puts in on their ESQUIRE Magazine interview.
To say that BTS music has trancsended all barries would be the fact of the matter because the massive loyalty and respect that they have from ARMY that cuts across all countries or regions is testament to their boundless influence.
What makes BTS widely loved and adored by fans from across the globe? Their sincerity, honesty and down to earth realness that is completely relatable. One would not know that they are the biggest band in the world, they are now under one of the most profitable companies in South Korea of which they are share holders, when you watch their everyday lives, in their “natural habitat”
It is outstanding that these seven men who are mostly in their early twenties have carried so much responsibility and the weight of the messages in the music they write and produce. BTS have changed the world in more ways than they might be aware of. From charities, to social awareness, Jin, Suga, RM, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jubgkook has never been afraid to speak for the voiceless and highlight issues that might otherwise be too controversial for other artists. And this is what resonates so well with anyone who listens to their music without prejudice, as Suga once stated.

“There is this culture where musculinity is defined by certain emotions, or characteristics, I’m not fond of these expressions. What does masculinity mean? People’s conditions vary day by day.

It just came naturally to me when making music” Suga
