K-Pop band BTS and why I am completely obsessed with them.
As many of you may know, and many of you may not, the hottest new band on the charts right now is K-Pop sensation BTS. The group includes 7 members, RM (Kim Namjoon) as the leader and main rapper, Jin (Kim Seokjin) as the Eldest and Visual, Suga (Min Yoongi) as the main rapper, Jhope (Jung Hoseok) as the dance coordinator and main rapper, Jimin (Park Jimin) as the main dancer and main vocalist, V (Kim Taehyung) as the main vocalist, and Jungkook (Jeon Jungkook) and the youngest, main vocalist, and main dancer. BTS just released their new album Love Yourself 承 Her which includes 8 public songs, one skit, and 2 hidden tacks that were originally only on the physical album; The top songs being "DNA" and "Mic Drop," both being featured on radio stations not only in America, but all around the world. BTS has become so popular in 2017, that they performed live on Ellen, James Cordon, Jimmy Kimmel, and the 2017 American Music AwardsTgey have also collabed with Steve Aoki, Desiigner, and Chainsmokers, and have plans to collaborate with ZEDD and other English speaking artists.
Personally, I am completely in love with this group. I have been for about a year now. It all started out with their album Wings, but more specifically, the song "Blood, Sweat, & Tears." This song is truly a work of art along with the music video and it is what helped me to instantly be intrigued. For anyone interested in the group, I defiantly suggest watching it.
Now, I know many people think of K-Pop as a very cringey genre of music, and I’ll be honest, at one point in time I did too, but in reality, K-Pop is actually amazing. Many people assume before becoming educated, and think solely on stereotypes, but I can guarantee you, if you ever research it you will grow and instant respect for the idols and their accomplishments.
BTS is truly the light of my life and one of the best discoveries I have ever made. Each member is loving, humble, and kind, and they each have their own unique personalities and talents that contribute to the group and a whole. I have no doubt that this group cares deeply for ARMY (their fan base) and is grateful for how far we’ve brought them. They are truly great people. Not only because of kindness and humility, but also because they know how to love their lives happily and healthily. Each member, although some show it more than others, has an amazing sense of humor and knows how to make people have a good time. They are laughable and bubbly, which is why many people are attracted to the group as a whole.
In summary, BTS is about as bright as the sun and they really deserve all the love and support they’re reviving at this time and in the future. If you haven’t yet, I really suggest checking them out. They have a wide range of music styles from hip hop to pop to ballads, and they can truly please any listener. I have no doubt that after seeing some of their music videos and listening to some of their beats, you will really appreciate, if not LOVE this group with all you have!
What is there to lose? Have a listen and see what it’s really like!
