    The way they always went against all odds, how they're taking slow steps in such a fast-paced industry is always astonishing to me..

    From the Top Social Artist, slowly making a statement by performing in the AMA's, getting their #1 BB200 and Top 10 on H100 the next year, getting 2 more of #1s on BB200 in less than a year, performing and winning awards for Top Duo/Group on BBMA/AMA's, touring at the US stadiums later.

    4 H100 Top 10 hits and 4 #1s on BB200 later to now getting a nomination in the Grammy's.

    It was never easy, they went through a lot, even us as their fans. I'm grateful that I can witness this by myself. I admire their grit and how they always push themselves even when they're approaching eight years. It truly wasn't easy at all, when no one in their industry have experienced what they do on the same year.

    Congratulations again on your very much deserved Grammy nomination, BTS!

    There is no other act that i know that has had the kind of exponential growth BTS has experienced, year after year. Watching a diagram of their growth curve is so satisfying.

    Honestly, looking back, people should've been more clued in to their potential seeing the way they doubled their sales every single year even in their early days. It's quite astonishing actually, and indicated that a big storm that could potentially shake up the industry was brewing. I guess hindsight really is 20/20 though v-v

    People were too busy speculating where did the sales come from instead of how.

    So true. Even from 2018 I can see how hard they continued to hustle and kept true to themselves and their message. They have also been so positive and proactive this year I find them very admirable.

    all of bts' achievements are only made sweeter by the fact that they got there all on their own

    I still can't believe it even now. They've been dreaming about this for two years, of course it feels surreal.

    Yeah they seriously inched their way up to being able to do this, it's honestly kinda crazy they did country-wide stadium tours and a grammy performance before a single grammy nom came their way :cryingr:

    the best thing about being their fan is seeing their hard work bearing fruit everyday.

    It had always been known Grammy's has a hate boner for boybands despite what they've achieved (probably why Harry still isn't nominated in any of the big awards too, it's hard to get rid of it), I was already preparing myself for a complete snub again and thank god I was completely wrong.

    The eventual biography or documentary of BTS is going to be amazing. Their story is so inspiring.

    They started with nothing but some fake brand clothing and an opprtunity to perform on music show because someone cancelled and theyve fought for every step since then with nothing but pure talent, charisma and hard work to back them up. They never achieved anything easily, it was not sudden, it was a gradual organic growth. And they did it with no support from Korean industry or global industry, only sabotaging and prejudice from almost everyone else. And theyve remained trough to their roots and amazing people through all this. Its so satisfying to see them win.

    Imagining an actual biography/documentary for their whole journey.. It's not over yet, but you're right I just know it's going to be amazing. They have left their mark in the music industry.
