  4. John Cena confirms he’s part of the BTS ARMY – and loves J-Hope’s mixtape Emma Kelly | Wednesday 14 Mar 2018 1:20 pm John Cena is one of the world’s most famous wrestlers, as well as a Hollywood actor. And now, he can add another thing to his ever-growing CV – official member of the BTS ARMY. The 40-year-old had everyone convinced that he was a secret K-pop fan after he uploaded pictures of Supreme Boi and BTS’s J-Hope to his Instagram account. However, John shares pictures to Instagram without any captions or hashtags, with his bio reading: ‘These images will be posted without explanation, for your interpretation. Enjoy.’ So when we met John as he promoted his upcoming comedy Blockers, we had to ask him – do these pictures mean he’s part of the ARMY? Speaking to Metro.co.uk, John laughed: ‘See, if I were to explain, that would defeat the purpose! Although I will say, Base Line is my favourite track on the J-Hope mixtape. I also like Hangsang. ‘What started as a happy accident has turned into something wonderful. I’ve been introduced to a new piece of culture, which I think is fantastic, because I’m learning through social media.’ John continued: ‘It’s a very rare occurrence, so I’m very happy to say… yeah, screw it, I’m in.’ And judging by his love of the Hixtape and his J-Hope picture uploads, we’re guessing we know John’s favourite member of BTS. Cena – who is preparing to clash with The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 34 – stars in Blockers as Mitchell, a devoted dad who, along with two other parents (played by Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz), attempts to stop his daughter from losing her virginity on prom night. Blockers is in UK cinemas Friday 30 March. Source
  5. BTS’s J-Hope Sets Even Higher Record For Korean Solo Artists As “Hope World” Rises On Billboard 200 J. K | March 13, 2018 J-Hope’s mixtape has soared to a higher spot on the Billboard 200 chart! Last week, BTS member J-Hope became the highest-ranking Korean solo artist on the Billboard 200 chart when his mixtape “Hope World” entered at No. 63, with less than a day of sales. The Billboard 200 ranks the most popular albums in the United States, and the chart is based on traditional album sales, track equivalent albums, and streaming equivalent albums. Billboard has now released its charts for the week ending in March 17, and J-Hope’s “Hope World” has risen to No. 38 on the Billboard 200! This means he’s set a new record for Korean solo artists. Meanwhile, “Hope World” remains at No. 1 on the World Albums chart for the second week in a row, while “Daydream” soars up to No. 1 on the World Digital Song Sales chart. “Hope World” also debuted on the Rap Albums chart at No. 19 this week and rose to No. 36 on the Canadian Albums chart. In addition, J-Hope has climbed to No. 91 on the Artist 100 chart and remains at No. 3 on the Emerging Artists chart. Congratulations to J-Hope! Original article at Soompi.
  6. This Korean Boy Band Remixed Classic Puma Sneakers for a Collab That Will Debut in the USA By Nicole Kirichanskaya Puma x BTS Courtesy of Puma Puma is launching a brand-new collection with the popular K-pop group BTS. BTS is a seven-member South Korean boy band formed by Big Hit Entertainment that debuted in 2013 and has gone on to flourish in the worldwide music market. The line will launch in Korea this March and globally in July. The collaborative range includes a remix of the classic Puma Turin sneakers and other sportswear basics. A follow-up capsule collection is set for release this fall. BTS also will be featured in Puma’s global campaigns for the brand’s Sportstyle range, which includes items like the Puma Suede sneaker and T-7 tracksuits. Since BTS’ performance at the 2017 American Music Awards (the first K-pop group to perform there) and its win as Top Social Artist at that same year at the Billboard Music Awards, the group has been receiving more worldwide recognition than ever. So it should come as no surprise that Puma recently announced that the members of BTS would be its latest global ambassadors. This marks a major step in Puma’s ongoing partnership with BTS — the two have been working together on brand campaigns and product collaborations since 2015, but now it will be on a global scale. Puma has a rapidly growing roster of global ambassadors. Along with BTS, there are American celebrities such as Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Big Sean and The Weeknd. And Puma has worked with other Asian celebrities such as the Korean R&B artist Dean, who released a music video in alignment with Puma’s “Run the Streets” campaign. Source
  7. Puma Announces Partnership With World-Renowned Pop Music Icons BTS Puma just announced that they are partnering up with BTS. For those of you who don’t know, BTS is a world-renowned Seoul-based K-pop group comprised of V, SUGA, JungKook, RM, Jin, j-hope and Jimin. They’ve been making huge waves in the music scene and are loved by millions of fans from their home base to the far corners of the globe. BTS has partnered with PUMA in South Korea since 2015 on brand campaigns and product collaborations. This year, BTS and Puma will release their collaborative product worldwide, which includes a remix of the classic Puma Turin and stylish sportswear basics. The PUMAxBTS collection will be first available in Korea this Spring, with other regions following up later this summer. Additionally, BTS will be seen in PUMA campaigns this year for the brand’s Sportstyle range, which includes classic PUMA icons such as the PUMA Suede and T-7 Track Suits. BTS won the ‘Top Social Artist’ last year at the Billboard Music Awards, one of the top three music awards in the United States. They were also officially invited to the American Music Awards (AMA) to perform on stage, being the first K-pop group to do so, increasing the reputation of K-pop music and culture. In addition, they released the remix album ‘MIC Drop’ last November, making it to 28th place on the ‘Hot 100’, the Billboard singles chart, in the United States, which is the top record for a K-pop group.

Stateside fans of BTS will be able to get there hands on some previously sold-out concert merchandise at Hot Topic soon, according to the retailer.

The T-shirts cost $32 and feature imagery related to the Wings Tour and the Wings album. They will be available at nearly 700 Hot Topic stores throughout the U.S. and Canada, as well as online. BTS Earns Highest-Charting & First Top 40 Hot 100 Hit for a K-Pop Group With 'MIC Drop' While immensely popular among American fans -- and the highest-charting K-pop group ever -- this is the first time BTS-oriented concert merchandise will be made easily accessible throughout the States, though their albums are available at some American retailers.

  9. BTS’ Suga Makes Generous And Meaningful Donation To Orphanages On His Birthday J. K March 9, 2018 BTS member Suga celebrated his birthday with a touching donation to 39 orphanages. Suga turned 26 (in Korean reckoning) on March 9, and he sent gifts of Korean beef to 39 orphanages as a way to keep a promise he’d made to fans years ago. The number 39 corresponds with the numbers that make up his birth month and day. A post was uploaded online on March 9 that shared that Suga had sent 10 kilograms (approximately 22 pounds) of prime Korean beef with confirmation documents as well as signed BTS albums to several orphanages. A source from BigHit Entertainment has told a news outlet, “For Suga’s birthday on March 9, he donated Korean beef to 39 orphanages under the name of BTS’s fan club ‘ARMY.'” At a fan signing event back in 2014, Suga had asked fans, “What do you want to eat?” When fans replied that they wanted meat, Suga promised them, “I’ll make a lot of money and buy meat for you.” In an interview in 2015, Suga was asked when he’d keep his promise, and he named the date of March 9, 2018. The source from BigHit continued, “Since Suga couldn’t have a party to eat meat together with his fans, he made the donation under the name of ARMY instead of his own to express his gratitude to his fans.” BTS will be releasing their third Japanese album “Face Yourself” on April 4, and is also currently working on their next Korean release. source
  10. BTS' J-Hope Enters the Billboard 200, Earns Highest Entry for a Solo K-Pop Act 3/5/2018 by Jeff Benjamin Peter Ash Lee - J-Hope photographed on Jan. 19, 2018 at Korea House in Seoul. The rapper's "Hope World" mixtape soars into the charts in less than one day of sales. Fans were eagerly awaiting to enter J-Hope's Hope World, and now the BTS member has the chart stats to prove it. J-Hope's solo release Hope World debuts at No. 63 on the Billboard 200 with 9,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending March 1, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 8,000 were in traditional album sales, helping it open at No. 1 on the sales-based World Albums chart and at No. 16 on Top Album Sales. The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new March 10-dated chart (where Bon Jovi's This House Is Not for Sale returns to the No. 1 spot) will be posted in full on Billboard's websites on Tuesday (March 6). J-Hope now becomes the highest-charting K-pop solo act on the Billboard 200. To date, only four other solo acts have broken into America's definitive album chart with BoA (whose self-titled album hit No. 127 in 2009), Taeyang (whose Rise peaked at No. 112 in 2014 and held the record for highest-charting K-pop LP until now), Jonghyun (whose posthumous release Poet/Artist bowed at No. 117) and G-Dragon (who has sent three entries to the chart since his 2012 debut with One of a Kind at No. 161). As the long-awaited latest solo release from BTS (following leader RM's eponymous mixtape in 2015 and Suga's Agust D release in 2016), Hope World and its enthusiastic response are expected but still odd-defying in many ways. The first comes from the timing with BTS' official Twitter account sharing the music video to lead single "Daydream" on Thursday, March 1, at 10:00 a.m. EST, and the full mixtape released minutes later. The timing means that Hope World had mere hours before Nielsen Music ended their sales tracking for the week in the U.S. that Friday. While G-Dragon also accomplished a similar feat -- earning his best U.S. sales week yet with Kwon Ji Yong's one day of sales last year -- he didn't do so with a tape that was also available for free. Hope World was released for free download, as well as on streaming and digital download platforms with the latter platforms helping the release sell thousands of copies and further proving BTS fans' famously loyal support. Past the albums charts, J-Hope also sends three tracks to the World Digital Song Sales chart led by "Daydream" at No. 3, the anthemic intro track "Hope World" at No. 16, plus trap cut "Hangsang," featuring Supreme Boi, at No. 23. But the chart accomplishments don't just extend to albums and songs but to the man himself. J-Hope also makes his debut on the Artist 100 chart at No. 97 to become just the fifth K-pop act and second solo K-pop act (after PSY) on the weekly ranking of the top 100 artists on the charts. The 24-year-old also debuts at No. 3 on the Emerging Artists chart where his fellow band mates RM and Suga (as Agust D) have both peaked at No. 46. BTS' success on the Billboard charts was already boundary pushing, but the fact that the support continues with its individual members further indicates the BTS guys hitting a new level of superstardom. source

The song hit No. 1 on the iTunes Top Songs Chart in various nations including Finland, Romania, Slovenia, Ukraine, Armenia, Kazakhstan, and Vietnam. J-Hope talked about the much-anticipated mixtape on a Naver V Live broadcast shortly after its release. “It was my biggest dream to release a mixtape with my own unique musical color, and I wanted to tell many people my story through my music,” he said. The idol went on to share that he was nervous about the release, commenting, “I prepared this mixtape for over a year and ended up revealing it today. I’m more nervous and anxious than when I debuted as [a member of] BTS.” J-Hope added, “I want to thank the fans who waited for this mixtape and cheered me on. I will do my utmost to become a better and even more hard-working artist.” Congratulations to J-Hope on his impressive achievement! Source (1) Original article at Soompi.

On the episode of KBS 1TV ‘Good Insight Season 2’ airing on the 23rd, it will be a time to listen to the head of BTS’s agency, Big Hit Entertainment, producer Bang Sihyuk speak on the secret to BTS’s success and the future of K-Pop. Last November, the 2017 American Music Awards (AMAs) were held in LA. At this award ceremony, considered to be one of 3 major music award ceremonies in the US, a Korean song sounded out. Here, boy group BTS, 5 years after debut, were shoulder to shoulder with top world musicians, like Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez, Niall Horan, among others. It was a miracle no one could have imagined; that day, BTS ranked no. 1 in the Google search rankings in the US, going beyond America and leaving an imprint worldwide. What could be the reason that these 7 young Korean men have grabbed hold of the whole world? Starting with the passionate cheers of their American fans at LAX (LA airport) to the international media interviews and broadcasts scheduled back to back to their rehearsals for their American Music Award performance, without time to spare, coverage, not shown anywhere else, of BTS’s schedules during their historical visit to the US, will be exclusively revealed on ‘Good Insight.’ Echo Bar Studios in LA, visited by the ‘Good Insight’ news team; a place where Worldwide stars like Ne-Yo and Usher recorded albums and also where BTS’s 1st full album was born. What image of early BTS does studio head, Eric Reichers, who assisted during their album recording, remember? “If it wasn’t the best, they weren’t satisfied. They worked hard until they thought ‘it’s perfect.’ Believing that, with sincerity and patience, success will follow, they had invested time and effort,” said Eric Reichers. World stars BTS, that the whole world acknowledges however, only 5 years ago, they were just seven ordinary young boys. Overflowing with talent and dreams, they faced the frustrations of reality head on to come into their own and fans around the world strongly indentified with them. Called self-learning-type idols, BTS members confessed their personal dreams and goals in front of the ‘Good Insight’ cameras. Their honest interviews will be revealed. According to Suga, “I think the fact that we tell our own stories with our own voices is the first reason that our fans develop a sense of empathy with us.” Jungkook revealed, “Our ultimate goal is to, someday, complete an album full of songs self-written and self-produced [by all of us] with our own hands.” Charming visuals, shocking stage performances, music videos perfected to a high degree, music that reflects global trends; how can BTS’s music, that insists on Korean lyrics, transcend language and become popular worldwide? Charms revealed by the BTS team, composer/producer Pdogg, music video/art director Lumpens, knife-like choreography performance director Son Seungduk, will also be introduced. ‘Good Insight Season 2’ will air on the 23rd at 9:40pm.

It turned out that Jimin had made this donation last year as well, ever since he heard that Hoedong Elementary School was closing down. BTS’s agency BigHit Entertainment confirmed the donation and added, “Jimin’s father felt very regretful that the school was closing down and wanted to do something for them.” At the time of closing, Hoedong Elementary School had 10 graduating students and 50 enrolled students. Jimin’s father participated in the graduating ceremony to personally give out the donations and said, “I watched Jimin graduate here 10 years ago, and when I think that the school won’t be here anymore, tears come to my eyes.” Source (1) (2) Sources: @OH_mes, Naver, Soompi
