Billboard and Rolling Stone compliment BTS on their achievements

Billboard and Rolling Stone revealed the achievements of the boy band BTS.

On Billboard’s ‘Year-End Chart’, BTS’s ‘Love Yourself: Tear’ and ’Love Yourself: Answer’ both placed first on ‘Billboard 200’. There was also an article stating, “While K-pop has widened its influence in the world, BTS has broken the walls of genres.” They explained, “BTS has surpassed the K-pop genre. They rapidly took on billboard’s main charts in ways other artists were unable to.” They emphasized, “BTS are the first Korean group to place their names on the ‘Social 50’. With the achievements of BTS, there is greater interest for K-pop and music activities. We believe that they helped K-pop grow in a healthy manner.”

Rolling Stone also included BTS’s ‘Love Yourself: Tear’ and ‘Fake Love’ in the ’20 Best Pop Albums of 2018’. Rolling Stone said, “BTS’s albums showed more than the best results. Even without letting go of their language (Korean) and style, they showed everything they were able to. ‘Fake Love’ broke through the language barrier and set a new record for K-pop groups.

They released so many great songs this year but I am so damn spoiled that I am still hungry for more. I cannot wait for Taehyung's Xmas song, Jimin's song that he promised us, JK's much-awaited mixtape, Suga's new mixtape and of course an all new BTS era within the next 3-4 months. I also cannot stress it enough, RM's 'Solo' was so damn good. I ain't a crazy fan that says everything they do is amazing but he really outdid himself with that 'playlist'.

"BTS Surpasses K-Pop Genre." That says it all. They are consistently on lists in competition with mainstream groups, not just K-Pop. They were #2 in BB's Year-End Top Duo/Group List, 2nd only to Imagine Dragons. They are competing with top tier artists in a very difficult and competitive market, and they have achieved all this while singing in Korean only (Waste It On Me was Steve Aioki's song, not BTS'). BTS truly deserved to receive the Order of Cultural Merit. Thank you BTS for all your efforts and achievements.

BTS has done so much for Kpop this year. As a fan of Kpop for nine years I never expected such success! I hope other Kpop groups take the chance to bring their music to America, the market is ready & BTS has open the path wide. Keep it up! The talent is there just dare to dream high!

usually songs that arent nice got popular, but fake love is an exception. i feel like American public have good taste for the first time. I'm glad it's BTS that actually got so popular and accomplished all those things instead of the other grps cause they totally deserve it the most.

Can someone tell me what achievements these are? BTS will only succeed by two factors: 1 - BIGBANG is in the army. And this is not discussed. The rise of the BTS comes at the same time when BIGBANG took a break in activities with the 5 members. 2 - Lack of choice in American music. Little exists of POP these days. Only "artists" like Lil Wayne, XXXTentacion and some other similar shit that succeeds there. 3 - EXO has dropped a lot of quality in the last two years and is about to suffer disband 4 - BIGBANG is away

Google is free. Since you're already using the internet, I suggest you maximize its benefits. If you have time to write such a long comment hating on BTS, I reckon you also have time to educate yourself to possibly lower down your ignorance a notch. If not so then you do have the freedom to remain stupid. Have a nice day!

dont make my laugh... Didnt bigbang rise because TVXQ was disband in 2010?? didnt exo rise because of bigbang hiatus??

when someone fall then someelse is going to rise. But with bts is different cause they rise worldwide and not only in asia as the groups you meantioned.

Ok i dnt mean to disrespect bigbang but please someone tell me how they achieved more dan bts bcos when bts is making most histories... It's always the 'first kpop act', first kpop group, first south korean groups to do something.... Doesnt bigbang belong to kpop act, group nd south korea? If they had broken it then bts wouldn't be first... Or am i missing something?
