BTS is the biggest musical group in the world, no question. The seven-man boy band are based in South Korea, but have taken over the world since their formation in 2013. Singles like 'Fire' and 'Dynamite' have been streamed billions of times, and have sat atop of charts around the world. What's more, their influence goes beyond music, with huge contributions to South Korea's economy and global image.
Their international success was further recognized at the American Music Awards on November 21. The boys were the most awarded artists of the night, taking home three prestigious honors! They won Artist of the Year, Favorite Pop Duo or Group, and Favorite Pop Song for their song 'Butter.' Artist of the Year is the most coveted award and they took to the stage to give a passionate acceptance speech. "This whole thing is a miracle. Seriously, we will never take this for granted," said RM.
Even amid a global crisis, BTS continue to release new music, set new records, and deepen bonds with their international fanbase, called ARMY. Click on to find out more about this incredible group.
