  2. BTS JUST BEAT OUT SHAWN MENDES & TAYLOR SWIFT FOR THE 'BIGGEST FANS' EMA 5 NOVEMBER 2018 by MTV ASIA Congratulations to BTS for winning their second MTV Europe Music Award! The K-Pop superstars collected the award for 'Biggest Fans' at the 2018 EMAs today (Nov 5) beating out stiff competition from some of the biggest stars on the planet. Considering their vast reach, it's hardly surprising that the BTS boys won the award as they are one of the most popular acts in the world right now. Proving the power of K-Pop, they won over Shawn Mendes, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and Camila Cabello. 'Biggest Fans' is the group's sixth (!) MTV Award of the year, as they have already won five awards - including 'Best Group Video' - between the MTV Millennial Awards, MTV VMAs Japan and MTV MIAW in 2018. They won their first MTV EMA in 2015 for 'Best Korean Act', which they had first been nominated for in 2014. BTS are only getting bigger and better, and their fans have proven themselves as dedicated and supportive as is humanly possible. BTS ARMYs, you've done the boys proud! -- ALSO THE BEST GROUP!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. BTS Becomes First Korean Artists To Surpass 1 Billion Streams On Apple Music Nov 4, 2018 | by J. Lim (jeeelim5) | Source from SOOMPI BTS has set another amazing record!

Congratulations to BTS on the meaningful achievement! --- Another day of first-on-something news Congrats boys, and ARMYs!!
  5. Singapore Police Force uses BTS song titles to warn about ticket scams 29/10/2018 Mon 11:25 in Singapore by Farzanah Farveen | Original Article by MARKETING The hottest Korean boy band is coming to Singapore in January, and fans in the country are going insane. According to ST, tickets sold out in less than four hours, and fans had reportedly begun queuing five days prior to the day tickets went on sale. To notify the members of the public about scams, Singapore Police Force (SPF) has put up a post to spread awareness about BTS’ tour tickets scam circulating online. SPF wittily slid in titles of some of BTS’ hit songs, such as “Idol”, “Dope”, “Blood, Sweat & Tears”, “Not Today” into its Facebook post. The post garnered approximately 968 reactions, 928 shares, 194 comments at the time of writing. “Planning to catch your favourite Idol? Cheap tickets may be Dope but are they real? Don’t let your Blood, Sweat & Tears in getting the tickets go to waste. Don’t be scammed, Not Today. Buy from authorised sellers,” the post read. The post largely garnered positive reactions. One netizen praised the marketer behind the post and requested to give that person a raise. Marketing has reached out to Singapore Police Force for comment. Using a similar tactic last week was Malaysian movie house TGV Cinemas. The company creatively weaved the titles of some of BTS’ hit songs, such as “Not Today“, “Blood, Sweat & Tears“, “Fire“, “Fake Love” and “Love Yourself” into the Facebook apology for not being able to screen a movie by the band. The post garnered about 1.2k reactions, 252 comments and 480 shares at the time of writing. The Korean band recently made it to the cover of Time Magazine and is now a worldwide sensation. The team of seven gained popularity over the past few years, collaborating with companies such as PUMA, Facebook and Coca-Cola. --- I really love how even the authorities have wits nowadays <3

Congratulations BTS! source
  9. BTS To Receive Order Of Cultural Merit From Korean Government Oct 8, 2018 by DY_Kim BTS will be awarded a special honor from the Korean government! In August, it was announced that BTS is one of the 12 nominees for an Order of Cultural Merit this year. On October 8, the recipients were determined at a cabinet meeting. Blue House spokesperson Kim Ui Gyeom revealed, “It was decided that the Hwagwan Order of Cultural Merit will be presented to the seven members of BTS who have further spread hallyu (Korean wave) and contributed to the development of popular culture and arts.” Prime Minister Lee Nak Yeon commented, “With many of the youth in foreign countries collectively singing lyrics in our language, not only have they spread hallyu, but they are also contributing to the spread of the Korean language.” BTS is the first idol group to receive an Order of Cultural Merit, and the members are also the youngest ever recipients. Veteran actor Lee Soon Jae will also receive the Hwagwan Order of Cultural Merit this year. Korean source Article source
  10. According to the article on Allkpop, BTS is going to perform IDOL in BBC's The Graham Norton Show on October 12th. I hope for many public appearances while they are touring Europe as well. If I remember correctly, BigHit has partnered with some kind of agency there too, so maybe we'll see more.
  11. BTS To Speak At UNICEF Launch Event At 73rd Session of the UN General Assembly Sep 19, 2018 by kminjungee BTS has been invited to attend the 73rd Session of the United Nations General Assembly! The 73rd UN General Assembly began on September 18, and will continue through next month. According to UN sources, BTS will be attending the launch of UNICEF and the United Nations’ “Generation Unlimited” partnership that will take place on September 24 at 12 p.m. local time at the UN Headquarters in New York, a day before the general debate will begin. “Generation Unlimited” is a new global partnership between UNICEF and the United Nations that is “dedicated to increasing opportunities and investments for children and young people aged 10 to 24.” BTS is said to have been noted by the United Nations for their campaign with UNICEF called “Love Myself,” which launched in October 2017 and has raised over 1 million dollars as of June 2018. A UN diplomat expressed how exceptional it is for a K-pop artist to be invited to attend the 73rd Session of the United Nations General Assembly. Notably, BTS will be speaking in front of the assembly for three minutes. Secretary-General of the United Nations António Guterres, United Nations Children’s Fund Executive Director and UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta H. Fore, South Korean First Lady Kim Jung Sook, and several others are expected to attend. Meanwhile, BTS is currently carrying out the North American leg of their world tour, with concerts coming up in Hamilton, Canada; Newark, New Jersey, Chicago, Illinois; and Citi Field Statdium in New York.

  12. BTS Sell Out First U.S. Stadium Show In Minutes Aug 17, 2018, 06:48pm Bryan Rolli If BTS’s global popularity has a ceiling, they apparently haven’t reached it yet. The K-pop septet sold out its first U.S. stadium show at New York’s Citi Field in a matter of minutes on Friday (Aug. 17), much to the elation of lucky fans who snagged tickets and the heartbreak of those who didn’t. Tickets for BTS’s Citi Field show went on sale at 4 p.m. EST. At 5:06 p.m., the venue confirmed via Twitter that it had officially sold out. The hype was enough to make #BTSCitifield a top trending global topic on Twitter, with more than 90,000 fans using the hashtag at one point. Citi Field marks the 15th and currently final North American show on BTS’s Love Yourself world tour. As with the New York baseball stadium, the group’s previous arena dates sold out within minutes, a testament to their worldwide popularity. But by selling out Citi Field, which holds nearly 42,000 people, BTS have vaulted to the highest tier of pop superstardom in the United States. The stadium gig puts them in the company of pop stars like Beyoncé and classic rock icons like Paul McCartney and Billy Joel. Many stateside artists struggle to sell out such massive venues at all, let alone on the first day tickets go on sale. The Citi Field sellout is just the latest success in a months-long victory lap for BTS. Their most recent album, Love Yourself: Tear, became the first K-pop album to top the Billboard 200 in May, and its lead single “Fake Love” became the first K-pop single to debut in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. Their new album, Love Yourself: Answer, arrives next Friday (Aug. 24) and has already broken preorder records in South Korea and topped Amazon's Best Sellers List. Every ticket purchased online for BTS’s Citi Field show included a CD copy of Love Yourself: Answer. That equals almost 42,000 copies, which is nearly 1/3 of the 135,000 units Love Yourself: Tear moved in its first week from sales and streaming combined. If ticket sales and album preorders serve as any indication, BTS should have another huge hit on their hands next week. source
  13. Big Hit Entertainment Announces Final Decision Regarding Release Of BTS’s Collaboration With AKB48 Producer Sep 16, 2018 by kminjungee Big Hit Entertainment has made a decision regarding BTS’s collaboration with AKB48’s executive producer Yasushi Akimoto. It was initially revealed on September 13 that BTS would be releasing a Japanese single album in November that included a new track “Bird,” with lyrics written by Yasushi Akimoto. This was met with concerns, which cited claims of the producer’s right-wing political leanings and his involvement in songs with misogynistic lyrics as reasons for caution. Big Hit Entertainment first posted an official statement on September 15, acknowledging the concerns, and explained they were discussing the matter. On September 16, the agency announced their decision to not release the track altogether through BTS’s official fan cafe. They stated, “The tracks included on the Japanese single album set to be released in November have changed as shown below due to production reasons. We apologize for the discomfort.” The announcement then listed out the original track list and the changed track list. The album will still consist of Japanese versions of “Fake Love” and “Airplane pt. 2.” Instead of “Bird” (the collaboration with Yasushi Akimoto), the single album will include a remix of “IDOL” and a remix of the Japanese version of “Fake Love.” Korean source Article source
  14. Article: BTS 'IDOL' hits 100 million views "shortest record time out of Korean groups" Source: Newsen via Nate 1. [+244, -9] They would've hit it in 48 hours if not for the 14 hour freeze. They got hit with the freeze when they kept climbing 30 million views at a time and then their views dropped after that... Pisses me off that they didn't even get one view during those 14 hours... ㅋ 2. [+202, -8] So proud of them for continuing to break record and after record 3. [+188, -9] RecordTS~ the pride of Korea, really 4. [+41, -0] Khalid tweeted about liking the songs, Corden invited them to his karaoke show... they're getting more and more popular ㅠ it'll be harder to see them in Korea now but I support them ㅠㅠ 5. [+34, -1] Wow, 100 million views in just four days, that's huge 6. [+25, -1] Not even a week, that's amazing 7. [+22, -0] Even after a 14 hour freeze, they're breaking records... 8. [+18, -0] Great songs, great kids... even this ajumma with kids has become a fan ㅜㅜ I listen to BTS every time I exercise 9. [+17, -0] They could've hit it faster if not for the freeze ㅜㅜ but they still broke records 10. [+16, -0] Pisses me off because they could've hit it sooner ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ cr
  15. Article: 'BTS merch'... fans couldn't buy it even after waiting all night Source: Chosun Ilbo via Nate 4,700 fans reported staying the entire night outside the BTS concert stadium for a chance to purchase fan merchandise. Worried parents later came out to join their teens in the wait. 1. [+608, -63] People will wait in line for all sorts of things from new cellphone releases to new Starbucks tumblers. It's all according to what the individual considers worthy of their time. BTS is just so popular that the competition is that much stronger. No one's forcing these fans to wait there, they're doing it because they like to and want to. If someone was passing out a thousand dollars, wouldn't you wait in line for it too if you thought it was worth your time? Obviously to these fans, the merchandise is worth more than that. It will all be looked back upon as memories when they grow up~ 2. [+522, -53] They waited there because they thought it was worthy of their time. What's it to you if they want to spend the night there? 3. [+420, -67] They're truly one of the top idols of the world. Their fanbase is comprised of not only fans but famous stars alike because their music is worthy and good. 4. [+33, -4] Don't act like you all didn't do this with Sechkies and HOT back then ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 5. [+30, -2] I actually think this is a problem with fan culture. Forcing fans to get into fan signings according to their number on a CD purchase just forces fans to needlessly buy multiple CDs, hundreds even. And with all this fan merchandise, they can sell it elsewhere but the company is purposely trying to save distribution expenses by selling it outside the concert stadium in rows of 3-4 so of course fans are forced to wait 24 hours overnight. What generation are we in that they're not able to just sell it online? Then kids won't have to be staying outside all night. This is really cruel. 6. [+26, -1] Honestly, if you know that your main fanbase is made up of teens, you should be selling your fan merchandise online where fans can purchase it safely from their homes. The fact that you're forcing fans who already traveled hours from the suburbs to have to wait overnight just for a chance at buying something is really... I can't help but wonder how crazy worried their parents must've been. If you're not going to give out the merch for free, at least make it easier for them to buy it. 7. [+25, -4] How is this any different from the people who wait in line to buy new iPhones? 8. [+24, -3] I don't get the point of making this merch exclusive. If you just sold it online, then it's comfortable for everyone and BigHit can sell a lot more and make more money. BigHit's pretty evil for making it a limited release only sold in front of the stadium fully knowing that their fans would have to wait outside for it ㅡㅡ 9. [+21, -4] There were even parents who stood in line in place of their kids. I hope all of you grow up to be good to them. 10. [+20, -1] Aigoo, how difficult for the fans... please just sell this stuff online next time cr

  20. BTS Nominated For Order Of Cultural Merit From Government Aug 9, 2018 by ilmare42 BTS has been nominated to receive an Order of Cultural Merit! It was recently announced by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism that BTS is one of 12 nominees for an Order of Cultural Merit this year, which will be given out at the 2018 Korean Popular Culture & Arts Awards. The Order of Cultural Merit has five grades, and is described as being “awarded to a person who has rendered outstanding meritorious services in the fields of culture and art in the interest of promoting the national culture and national development.” The nominations for the order note BTS’s achievements both in Korea and in foreign markets including Japan and the United States, as well as their contributions to the Korean Wave. They list some of their accomplishments including coming in No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with their album “Love Yourself: Tear.” BTS previously received a commendation from the Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism during the 2016 Korean Popular Culture & Arts Awards. The Order of Cultural Merit is a higher honor than the ceremony’s commendations from the president, prime minister, and minister. While BTS and many other artists including BIGBANG, EXO, Girls’ Generation, SHINee, 2NE1, TWICE, BTOB, CNBLUE, and more have received commendations, there has not yet been an idol group who has been awarded an Order of Cultural Merit. Singer PSY received a fourth-grade Order of Cultural Merit in 2012 following the achievements of his track “Gangnam Style,” which reached No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. The winners of the 2018 Korean Popular Culture & Arts Awards will be announced in October, with the ceremony planned for October 31. BTS is currently preparing to make a comeback on August 24 with their repackaged album “Love Yourself: Answer,” and will then be embarking on a world tour that will include their first ever stadium concert in the United States. sources 1 2 3 Soompi
