    I’ve been seeing some people here on AKP saying BTS need a hit song.

    But do they really?

    As we all know, BTS is a group that have shown lots of improvement over the years. So whether or not they need a hit song is beyond me. They have steady growth which is what some groups can’t maintain.

    Even if they did have a hit song, would their popularity drain afterwards? Would they be able to continuously release hit songs?

    BTS has a history of making things “deep”. Even though some of you may not see it, DNA is relatively “deep” as well. Would BTS be able to maintain the amount of “deep”-ness in a hit song? Usually, hit songs are just party. Have fun. Do this, do that.

    Personally, I don’t think they need it. The growth they’ve shown shoes they are not at their peak yet. They keep improving and improving as they grow. :)

    They are growing rapidly and have been for awhile. We never know. Maybe they will a "hit song" later on.

    They'll need hits to reach their peak
    they have had hits in the past, maybe in the future they'll need more

    Thing is though - they've gotten this far without any hit songs....they're known for "many" of their songs...instead of just one really big one.
    I think that's better than having a single hit song.

    Also, I just wanted to share this beautiful gif of V because well....it pretty much stopped me in my web browsing tracks =O

    Well, they r rising with their discography being praised

    Although a national hit will be blessing, but we can strive without it...I guess

    All they need is a "Nation's Hit Song", they already had their breathrough songs, but not a song that all their own nation loved (how Loser/Blue is for BB and Friday is to IU). We all know they sell A LOT, but I still don't know about the general public's opinion in Korea.
    They haven't reached their peak yet. Their fanbase is growing day by day and it's impressive.

    I'm confused on the qualifications to become a hit song.

    Fire, Blood Sweat and Tears and Spring Day are all hit songs. They were played everywhere in Korea and they've had impressive longevity in the charts. Are they ur national hits? No but I rather BTS to have continuous hit songs rather than just 1 national hit and flop after that.

    I don't think BTS need a hit song, and become one of those groups who only remembered and hyped trend just because of 1 song, BTS doing great now even without a hit song..

    BigHit always have different ways to promote them, and it worked..
    They also have armys who will always try to make all their songs a hit not only in korea but other countries as well..
