Best Kpop band in the world is BTS. BTS is a Korean band liked by the millions of people in the world. The only thing they don’t have is mainstream success and popularity. To the point that millions of fans, millions of supporters, millions of followers on various social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. BTS has more than 20 million followers on Facebook and 20 million followers on Twitter. While those numbers aren’t exactly huge, it’s enough to get people talking about them.
BTS have come a long way since they were formed in 2013. Their self-titled debut album “2 Cool 4 Skool” managed to reach the top spot on Billboard’s World Album chart. They have scored big wins at award shows such as The Japan Gold Disc Awards. On top of all this BTS has also collaborated with big names such as Jonas and Vicky. Not to mention BTS has released hit songs such as Fire, Fake Love, Blood, Sweat and Tears, and Idiot. On top of that BTS has also released their first EP album titled Love Yourself, which has the title track “Love Yourself.”
The album titled Love Yourself has been certified as a Gold record by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The album Love Yourself has only been out for about a month and it has already sold over 200,000 copies. That number is nothing to scoff at, especially when you consider how many years it took Taylor Swift for her album 1989 to hit the 200,000 mark in just two weeks.
While BTS are probably the hottest Kpop group out there, they aren’t the first Kpop group that has received this accolade. In fact, BTS is the third Korean group after Girls Generation and 2NE1 to receive a diamond certification.
We don’t see much of Girls Generation these days considering they announced their disbandment in December of 2016. I think that’s why it’s a good thing that Girls Generation made this mark in the music world because it makes the world stand up and take notice that Kpop has transcended to the next level.
BTS recently broke the Guinness World Records for “Most Twitter Hashtags by a Single Artist” with 35,818 tweets. This happened after they became the first Kpop group to release their songs in various countries. All in all, BTS have been on fire ever since they became popular.
This is good news for all BTS fans. Even though BTS is not a mainstream band yet, this new achievement shows that it’s just a matter of time before they become a huge success in the music world. It’s no wonder that Kpop artist Taylor Swift tweeted this about BTS:

Many of you might have been thinking the same thing. You may be wondering “How did BTS get to be so popular?” Well, that question is easier to answer than you think. What makes BTS so popular is not their singing, dancing, or their chemistry, but rather the fact that they are the voice of young and passionate people. That’s something many fans will relate to and that resonates with everyone.
Although some of the members might be young, they are mature in many ways. While some of their fans are mostly teenagers, others are of college age and older. They can’t relate to teenagers because they’re all older than that. That means their fans aren’t just teenagers like them. They’re also young adults or people in their twenties. While BTS have their fan base from all ages, it’s a good thing they’re only 17 years old, otherwise that would give people the wrong impression about them and would be extremely unfair to their fans. It’s important that the fans know and understand that they are not just some teenagers, they are well-developed individuals with high level of maturity. In fact, a lot of their fans are in their twenties and thirties.
That means BTS have fans of all ages. This also means they can appeal to many more people. Not only do they have to try to get the young people to like them, they have to try to get those in their thirties and forties to like them too. BTS knows that getting older people to like them is going to be difficult, but that doesn’t mean they give up. They have a very strong fan base and they are very confident about that.
It’s important to understand that Kpop bands do not get popular because of their music. A Kpop group can only be successful because of their popularity and they are very successful. The fact that they have a large fan base only proves that Kpop has entered the mainstream and will remain here for a long time to come.
Congratulations to BTS for their new feat. It has become very apparent that BTS will be a mainstay in the Kpop music scene for years to come.
What are your thoughts?
I don’t see anyone beating BTS for the longest consecutive weeks in top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100. That’s pretty good.
