During their latest press conference held on November 27, the same date as their live performance, at Olympic Park, Seoul, the boys of BTS gave their thoughts on being named as one of the top idol groups.


On this day, one reporter asked, "EXO and Big Bang are mentioned when we talk about Korea's top class boy groups. But if you go on 'V' app and see the comments that come up, there are times that you guys receive a lot more than those top class groups. Do you feel as though you guys have reached the top class level?"

Leader Rap Monster answered humbly, "We are thankful that we can even be mentioned with such cool seniors."

He continued, "We've always thought that EXO seniors are great. They set phenomenal records and they release music different than ours. When it comes to Big Bang seniors, it's been a long while since they've debuted and as iconic figures, they've shown us a lot. Even being asked this question is an honor. Of course, it will be a long while until our name can even be placed alongside theirs."

Meanwhile, BTS is currently in full gear for their upcoming comeback with 'In The Mood For Love Pt.2.'

TO CLARIFY ~ i mean i dont think they should be compared to either~ Exo is manufactured pop and i think BB and BTS arent alike to be compared~ better comparisons BAP Block B ~ but i guess the article is talking in terms of popularity

I love EXO and BTS. Most if my kpop friends are both EXO-L and ARMY! Its like BTS is fuse of BB and EXO. They have the looks, the talent, they make their own music and they ;the fan's love. They are a lovable group! Who would not love this dorky group!

Can't really compare since SM outsources EXO's stuff to other writers/producers (who are honestly amazing), while BB and BTS have more of a hand in their own albums. No hate against EXO! I just feel like if anything, SM should be getting the bulk of the credit for the music xD

But BTS doesn't create ALL of their music lol. People may find this surprising(sarcasm) but Exo does take part in their album making. It's just that everyone chooses to ignore it.

In addition, you may have not heard but Exo sincerely wants to take part in their album making process since ages, it's just that SM doesn't ket them, Chanyeol has been saying he wants his composed songs to be in there, same with Yixing, but they need a chance. They already take part in making the lyrics.
