    I think yes, because a lot of the world is taking interest in them. I don't think there are any other bands/groups that are so recognized world-wide, though there are lots of soloists.

    I'm curious: To the people who are voting no, what group(s)/band(s) do you guys think are bigger?

    Guys, don't make such threads. As considerable human being I understand that fans of other groups get pissed about these threads, and as an ARMY, it hurts my feelings when pissed people come here and use this thread as an excuse to drag BTS down.
    BTS is doing very well. That is all we need to know.

    BTS has shown that no matter what the haters say at the end of the day BTS always wins, and the haters are left in shame.
    There is a fandom that is so jealous of BTS that I invent that bighit is going to send free albums to everyone to have a high number in the presales ha ha ha XD. No matter what the haters say they will never be able to erase the triumphs of BTS.

    Oh please, not even close. Tons of other groups in other countries. Especially anything in China can dominate Kpop for pure numbers.

    It's ridiculous and also kinda funny how few moments of fame in America translates to "BIGGEST IN THE WORLD" for alot of kpop fandoms. They're realistically complete nugus on the world stage and the numbers that a small niche like Kpop can push out is really minuscule compared to places like India, China or Latin America.

    Imagine Dragons is great, but I'm afraid they don't have the same hype surrounding them that BTS do

    Tbh, if you see Maroon 5 as a band but not a group, then yes.
    America not really have groups nowadays.
    I think the world is really craving for male group after hiatus of One Republic and One Direction, thus the rise of BTS.

    The United States is not the world, it is just a country. BTS is known in many parts of the world where Imagine Dragons no one knows them. I'm sure that in a popularity vote from all over the world BTS would win. In fact, in a vote of the Time, BTS won many important people of U.S.A (first place by voting)
    I am from Latin America, and BTS is very popular here. We are making massive orders not for Armazon, but for the official stores of Korea. I have spoken with other armys of the world and they are also popular there. India and China also buy massively.

    BTS do have biggest fanbase but they still are not appreciated by GP
    Here to prove why BTS isn't biggest band in the world even right now :
    http://kworb.net/pop/ See getting no 1 on itunes in number of countries isn't big deal , maintaining is the one .
    Imagine dragons is most popular group in america , canada , and south america . yes they don't have dedicated fanbase and but their have huge support from GP which BTS doesnt have . Their last release is like in 2017 still they are in itunes charts in so many countries around the world when BTS latest releases have almost outcharted is most of the itunes charts around the world . They still have more spotify streams than BTS . They have billboard no1 songs in hot 100 which BTS doesn't have .
    India china and indonesia comprises more than half of the world population . and they are still not very significant in either of them . People even say they are very popular in indonesia ? where i don't see them ? http://kworb.net/charts/itunes/id.html but i can still see an imagine dragon song still in the chart :) [ check carefully ]
    Having big fanbase is not equal to biggest band in the world .
