During a speech for '2017 MAMA' in Hong Kong on December 1, Bang Si Hyuk stated, "BTS actively communicates through social media with the people in their 10s-20s that actively use this platform. The hot issues that arise during this process allowed the people who didn't know BTS to take an interest. BTS is a good example of changing the flow of social media."
Bang PD also stated that BTS' popularity will not be just a one moment spark but a long-lasting success.
Meanwhile, BTS won 'Artist of the Year' at '2017 MAMA' in Hong Kong.
