'Shin DongA' is a current events magazine known for delivering the most vital societal and political issues. The magazine reserves the cover for the most sensational figures of the time. Some of the big names who've landed on the first page include President Moon Jae In, Donald Trump, and Kim Jong Un.
For the month of October, 'Shin DongA' stepped away from notable political figures and chose BTS for their cover. It's very rare for the magazine to feature a K-Pop group.
A similar phenomenon took place in August, where Wanna One's Kang Daniel took the cover of the current events magazine 'Weekly Chosun'.
BTS' immense popularity and great success are assumed to be the reason. Meanwhile, the group is currently in promotions for 'Love Yourself: Her'.
