You know BTS right? Those guys you see all over social media but never bothered to Google them. Or that K-pop boy band that recently won a Billboard and now every social media account is making an article about them.
However you know them, they are BTS also known as Bulletproof Boy Scouts or even more Recently Beyond the Scene. They are a South Korean boy band composed of seven members: Rapmonster, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook. They are making sure the world knows about K-pop.
I came across K-pop, in general, the most random way. One day I was studying with a friend on campus, and I noticed she was able to listen to music and study at the same time. I for one cannot study and listen to music with lyrics because I would end up writing the lyrics instead of what I was supposed to write. I told her I was impressed, and she said she would listen to K-pop because she did not know the words and was an excellent way to make studying even better. To be honest, I laughed, but after trying to concentrate one night, I gave it a go. Let me tell you I regret laughing that day.
1. BTS is multi talented.
BTS is the full package. They can sing, rap, produce, play instruments and dance! Not to mention their killer fashion and looks.
2. BTS music is the right amount of everything.
One of the main reasons I started to listen to BTS songs more especially when studying was their up beat tempos. Later on, I would notice myself humming along to the song. BTS knows how to appeal to the international audiences by incorporating English enough to get some people singing along.
3. BTS choreography is on a different level.
How can you not appreciate their fancy foot work and their blood sweat and tears? (Haha see what I did there) Someone give their choreographer a raise.
4. BTS music videos put people to shame.
Let’s take a moment and appreciate BTS’s music videos because they are amazing. Not only their music video concepts but their visuals. I appreciate how every videos aesthetic complements the song. For example, the song “Save Me” is a little bit more a sad EDM song and their music video tended to be less colorful compared their other videos. You have the cloudy skies and the bare landscape that make you feel more emotional.
5. BTS stay true to themselves, their fans and their message.
“Please ARMY, remember what we say, love myself, love yourself. that we say “
So let’s keep those figures crossed.
