Producer Bang Si Hyuk , also the president of Bit Hit Entertainment, explained his stance on BTS's U.S. debut.
With BTS making records on Billboard with their latest track "Blood, Sweat & Tears", the possibility of the group making an official debut in the United States was brought up. To OSEN, Bang Si Hyuk spoke up about the hot topic and revealed his plans for BTS.
Bang Si Hyuk said, "A K-pop singer gaining attention in America's mainstream market with the genre of K-pop and competing with American mainstream artists with the goal of making an official debut overseas is completely different from the start. I believe BTS came to their position today by utilizing their strengths as K-pop singers. I'm planning to continue their growth with that focus. During the process, if they exceed a certain point and gain attention in the American mainstream market, then that'll be something to be thankful about. Other than that, I think preparing an official debut overseas is yet excessive."
According to Bang PD, "To go beyond is as wrong as to fall short."
