Introduction to BTS

"2, 3. Bangtan! Hello, we are BTS!" BTS (방탄소년단; Bangtan Sonyeondan), also known as the Bangtan Boys, is a seven-member South Korean boy band formed by Big Hit Entertainment. BTS' musical style has evolved to include a wide range of genres. Their lyrics touch on the themes of mental health, troubles of school-age youth, loss, the journey towards loving oneself, and individualism.

BTS debuted on June 12, 2013 with the song "No More Dream" from their first album 2 Cool 4 Skool. Wings became BTS' first album to sell one million copies in South Korea. By 2017, BTS crossed into the international music market, leading the Korean Wave into the United States and breaking numerous sales records, becoming the first Korean group to receive a certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for their single "Mic Drop".

BTS is the first Korean act to top the Billboard 200 with their studio album Love Yourself: Tear and have since hit the top of the U.S. charts with their albums Love Yourself: Answer and Map of the Soul: Persona, making BTS the first group since The Beatles to earn three number one albums in less than a year. Love Yourself: Answer also broke South Korea's Gaon Album Chart's all-time monthly record previously set by Love Yourself: Tear and became the first Korean album certified Gold in the United States.

As of 2019, BTS are worth more than $4.65 billion to South Korea's economy each year, or 0.3 percent of the country's GDP. BTS attracts one in every 13 foreign tourists that vist South Korea and were cited as one of the key acts boosting global music sales to $19 billion in 2018.
