BTS is having yet another comeback and ARMY, their fan base, is looking to set even more new records. If you do not know who BTS is then let me enlighten you. BTS is a South Korean group that consists of 7 members: Kim Namjoon (RM), Kim Seokjin (Jin), Min Yoongi (Suga), Jung Hoseok (J-Hope), Park Jimin (Jimin), Kim Taehyung (V), and Jeon Jungkook (Jungkook). They debuted in 2013 and have been taking over the world ever since. BTS has had two of their albums hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 charts being the first Korean act to do so. In addition, they were the first K-pop group to win a Billboard Award and the first to perform on U.S. TV. Also, their “Idol” music video had the most views, 45 million, on YouTube in 24 hours beating Taylor Swift’s previous record, 43.2 million views. BTS has broken countless more records and will continue. The upcoming album Map of the Soul: Persona is being released April 12th. BigHit Entertainment recently released the trailer with RM, the leader of BTS, rapping about figuring out who he is exactly and reclaiming himself. Also, BigHit released the 4 versions of concept photos that will come with the 4 different sets of albums fans can buy. There is a lot of excitement about the septet’s new album and BTS will definitely not disappoint. In addition to their upcoming album, BTS will be going on their 2019 Love Yourself: Speak Yourself World Tour.
