BTS (Hangul: 방탄소년단; RR: Bangtan Sonyeondan), also known as the Bangtan Boys, is a seven-

member South Korean boy band formed by Big Hit Entertainment. They debuted on June 12, 2013
with the song "No More Dream" from their first album 2 Cool 4 Skool. They won several New Artist
of the Year awards for the track, including at the 2013 Melon Music Awards and Golden Disc
Awards and the 2014 Seoul Music Awards. The band continued to rise to widespread prominence
with their subsequent albums Dark & Wild (2014), The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Part 2
(2015) and The Most Beautiful Moment in Life: Young Forever (2016), with the latter two entering
the U.S. Billboard 200.[4] The Most Beautiful Moment in Life: Young Forever went on to win the
Album of the Year award at the 2016 Melon Music Awards.[5]

Their second full album, Wings (2016),[6] peaked at number 26 on the Billboard 200, which marked
the highest chart ranking for a K-pop album ever.[7] In their native South Korea, Wings became
the best selling album in the Gaon Album Chart history at the time.[8] The album went on to sell
more than 1.5 million copies, making it BTS' first "million seller",[9] and the group was
subsequently awarded Artist of the Year at the 2016 Mnet Asian Music Awards.[10] The group's
next release, Love Yourself: Her (2017),[11] debuted at number seven on the Billboard 200,[12]
marking the highest rank for an Asian artist in history. The group also managed to debut on the
Billboard Hot 100 for the first time with the album's title track, "DNA", which entered at number
85 and peaked at number 67.[13] Another track from the album, "Mic Drop", was remixed by Steve
Aoki with a feature by Desiigner and peaked at number 28 on the Billboard Hot 100. Both tracks
went on to be certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America, a first for any
Korean act ever.[14] The album sold over 1.2 million copies on South Korea's Gaon Album Chart in
its first month, reclaiming its title as the best selling album in the chart's history and becoming the
biggest selling Korean album by month in 16 years, coming second to G.o.d's album in 2001.[15]
BTS was awarded the Mnet Asian Music Award for Artist of the Year for the second year in a row
in 2017.[16] Their third full album Love Yourself: Tear (2018), debuted at number one on the
Billboard 200,[17] making them the only K-Pop act to achieve this feat so far. Since their debut,
they have sold an estimated 7 million albums worldwide.[18][19]
