Wow, LY Her, a 2017 album, is on this year-end 2018 Billboard chart. That's fandom growth and longevity. New fans are looking at their old albums. Even American artists don't have that happen.

Can we stop with the "first Kpop" or "first Korean" act? BTS is at the level where they're the "first Asian acts" to have these accomplishments.

Now this is great wallpaper. They had such an amazing 2018 that I'm anxious but looking forward to 2019. When do these guys sleep? They're on a world tour right now yet managed to give the most amazing performance on the Melon Music Awards - their dedication is out of this world.

Hello, I have a question for the REAL ARMYS, not the fakes ones, myself included, lol, who would just bash me. But I was wondering would BTS be as successful in the states if they didn't have an English speaker (RM) in the group? Picture all the English interviews they've done but with a translator. I just can't help but think about all these music showbiz people eventually getting tired after the honeymoon phase. I'm not trying to downplay their achievements or anything like that, I know how incredibly hard working these boys are even though I'm just a casual fan of some of their songs. I just want an ARMYS perspective because you guys have been following for years now I'm assuming, you know about their will and determination, would the boys have been able to overcome the language barrier and succeed greatly without an English speaker do you think?

I personally dont think you need an English speaker, all ARMYs became true fans after searching their Korean videos with subtitles and looking up the lyrics, I personally think music is a universal language. Remember it's only been a year since they debuted in the US and they have been charting on Billboard since 2014. They were famous internationally before they were big in Korea, it's been quite the organic growth.

I was thinking like what if america gets tired of bts winning all these awards, giving all these interviews, having to constantly use a translator and the people whether its the corporate side or regular folk thinking "why are we giving so much time to these foreign boys who cant speak english?" BUT your music is universal statement rings true. Music is powerful whether it's in a language you do or don't understand. As long as it sounds good is all that matters so I guess BTS would be as successful, nice lol


Update: my reply to changmin below doesn't seem to be showing so I'll copy and paste it here: your racism points are absolutely spot on. you conveyed what I wanted to say because I didn't know how to word it, lol. the huge presence of social media plays a key factor in all of this you're right because imagine if a famous artist called BTS a bunch of chinks, people all over the world would come in to defend BTS and give that racist absolute hell. any endorsements or sponsors that artist may have? DROPPED. has a role in a tv show or movie? DROPPED. signed to a record label? DROPPED. im sure you get the point, lol. BTS is well protected in that regard then which is good against the evil that is racism.

cute, the racist bigblueagain, aka ryenlux, aka bangeryun94, aka wang_sejung, desperately trying to sound as if he cares, while he hates bts especially hard for becoming so big and hates south korea in general, because of his jealousy and only created all his accounts for his hate rants all day...

always pathetic when a racist like you tries too hard to act as someone else, like you do here...

Its ok.. BTS won't be BTS and ARMY won't be without RM :) When we streams/watch YT Vids, VLives they were no subs until someone put subs on it. ARMYs patiently wait for the subs to come in. Language won't be a problem anymore :)
