After returning back to Korea triumphant after winning 'Top Social Artist' at the Billboard Music Awards, BTS held a press conference at the Lotte Hotel in Seoul on May 29.

Here are some of the highlights from the press conference interview.

When asked if they had any plans to enter the U.S. market, the members revealed that they have no plans to enter the U.S. market and Rap Monster said, "Since we're Korean singers, we look the best when singing in Korean. If you think about, it's unbelievable that we won a Billboard award. Going back to our debut in 2013, winning a Billboard award was something we never could've even dreamed of."

 Instead of trying to advancing into the United States, BTS wants to continue their growth as a group and continue to show a good image. They want to continue to have interactions with the U.S. market like they're currently having instead of trying to entering it. After their world tour concludes they want to return healthy with some cool releases for the 2nd half of 2017. They did reveal that if the opportunity arises to perform at the 'Billboard Music Awards' then they would love to perform in Korean with their music.

Jimin revealed that attending the 'Billboard Music Awards' was an honor itself let alone winning an award and that he is very grateful to ARMY.

BTS also revealed that Celine Dion personally invited the members to her concert but they couldn't attend due to a conflict in schedules. Suga also revealed that the Chainsmokers invited them to attend their rehearsal and they got the opportunity to watch and talk with them. It was pretty cool that they got to talk to the Chainsmokers and watch them.

Suga also revealed, "Through social media, Korean K-pop singers can win a Billboard Music Award. I believe that if you have great content then positive results will come."

The boys also stated that have a lot of things planned for BTS Festa.

After the press conference, BTS immediately headed to Japan as they have 13 concert dates there from May 30 to July 2.

BTS= humble kings who are very close to be the first kpop group in the history to enter the US Billboard Hot 100. only legends! just wait and see how BTS makes history with their next album. i love the fact that BTS aren't even trying to make it in the US but they are still doing a lot better than other kpop groups who have tried to make it in the US before. interesting!?.

LveKimTae mb130 Tuesday, May 30, 2017

what's more interesting is that those kpop artists who've tried to make it to U.S and released their songs in english failed and never made this kind of impact like BTS have

American ARMY are fierce warriors!

Hyeriioo Tuesday, May 30, 2017

Bighit know what better , They know they are going to be flop in the US and their asshole fan fight with me for that they are relevant in US LMAO

LveKimTae Hyeriioo Tuesday, May 30, 2017

u need to learn what the definition of "flop" means because BTS are far from being flops in US lol

Hyeriioo LveKimTae Tuesday, May 30, 2017

Sure honey ,They are still flop in US

bangeryun94 Hyeriioo Tuesday, May 30, 2017

Sure, that's why they got 300 million votes for Top Social artist ... because they're flops. Why would they want to make music in the US? They're not interested. I'm going to leave this for you even though you're doing nothing constructive and are just trolling. Thank you for giving them attention. It guarantees they'll be top brand in June.

Hyeriioo bangeryun94 Tuesday, May 30, 2017

And here armies with their bla bla story again .. come on, they dont even know English they aren't going to be successful in US . NEXT

bangeryun94 Hyeriioo Tuesday, May 30, 2017

They're not going to be successful in the US because they're not interested in the US. And here you are with your bla bla trolling. NEXT

Hyeriioo bangeryun94 Tuesday, May 30, 2017

Even if they were interested they would not have succeeded . NEXT PLS

LveKimTae Hyeriioo Tuesday, May 30, 2017

They've succeeded without even trying lol NEXT

Hyeriioo LveKimTae Tuesday, May 30, 2017

They succeed with spam in social media kkk

bangeryun94 Hyeriioo Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Sober up chingu. Stop confusing the fans of BTS with BTS themselves. And why should you be so concerned if they are successful or not in America? You're not American

bangeryun94 Tuesday, May 30, 2017

I was expecting this after their SNS was flooded with comments like "debut in America, please perform on xxx program, make a song in English."  Two things that Bang Si Hyuk has been adamant about ... as long as Bangtan is successful there will never be a solo album or tour by any member ... covers and mixtapes don't count as they're written, recorded and produced on the members' time not the agency's.  And they will not venture into the western market.

shyloone Tuesday, May 30, 2017

yes they dont need to enter US market, they will just visit alot when they go get their awards, an show up on the US charts, just by staying right where they are, Good for you ma boys you dont have to change one bit

drwsyhmz Tuesday, May 30, 2017

drwsyhmz Tuesday, May 30, 2017
