BTS wins TIME's 'Person of the Year' poll

BTS won TIME Magazine's 'Person of the Year' poll. 

 

Every December, TIME Magazine selects the 'Person of the Year,' or the most influential figure or a thing of the year. In the reader's poll for 2018, the Big Hit Entertainment boy group took first place by gaining 9% of the votes. Planet Earth came in second with 8%. South Korea President Moon Jae In is also spotted at fifth place with 4%. 


TIME wrote, "Korean boy band BTS has won the online reader’s poll for TIME’s Person of the Year, beating out other artists, world leaders and politicians among those who voted. The seven-member K-Pop band — which includes members RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jung Kook — held on to their long lead in the poll. Planet Earth narrowly trailed BTS in the poll. With millions of votes cast, BTS outpaced Planet Earth by 0.12%."

In June, BTS also made it on TIME's 'The 25 Most Influential People on the Internet.'

"poll"

That kinda says it all. The real award goes to whoever TIME chooses themselves whereas the poll is just to get people to visit their website more

BTS has broken kpop’s glass ceiling esp in the west. They have ventured farther and achieved more, proving that they are not just idols. They approached social causes through their music and positive image. Most of their song lyrics addressed social issues and promoted self-love/acceptance. Their countless reality shows not only displaying their early struggles and perseverance, but also harping friendship/family values and compassion. They are spreading positive vibes and these what made them distinct from the rest.
