  5. Music that conveys the messages of today’s generation: Worldwide communication thanks to ARMY [180604 SBS: Reporter Shim Wooseob] The seven young Korean boys that have captured America’s Billboard Charts have joined us here at the SBS News Centre. It’s BTS. (Hello, we are BTS.) Q. Welcome. Even a 40 year old uncle (like me) really enjoys the recent release of 'Fake Love. How do you feel about topping the albums chart? JK: When we first heard the news of coming in at #1, it didn’t feel like reality. Afterwards however, many people congratulated us and gave us positive feedback so it started to sink in. In future, we’ll continue to work hard to grow and mature befittingly to the title. Q. We heard that after your win at the Billboard Music Awards, you skipped the after-parties to spend time quietly between yourselves? JH: Actually, every time we have album promotions or come out triumphant at music awards shows, fans are the first ones we want to share the joy of winning with. Hence, through our live broadcasts, we enjoy our very own after-party with all of our fans. Q. How did you feel taking photos with so many global stars at the Billboard Music Awards? J: It’s our second year participating at the Billboards and it’s amazing, such an honour to have become close with some artists, as well as to have people we’ve only seen on TV or the internet come up to us first and ask to take pictures with us, or even to suggest to collaborate with us. Q. How does it feel to see videos (of people) overseas cheering for you and singing along, regardless of race or age? JM: When I see fans singing along, it feels like one of the happiest moments for me. I always feel that we must do our best and show everything we’ve got for the people who sing for us. Q. For foreign songs, you learned them by romanising into Hangeul while for your Korean lyrics, it seems that you’re making Hangeul more known by including their English meanings too? V: If you watch the videos, you’ll see that they’re all made by our ARMY. It really surprises me that through these videos, ARMY from all over the world can transcend language barriers and geographical boundaries to communicate effectively. This really makes us even happier. Q. When you look at BTS’ songs, isn’t there a lot of dialogue about socio-political issues? S: Not only are we interested in them, but while making music, we always wanted to share our stories and convey the many thoughts and messages of the current generation, the people living in this generation. We considered this our role and because many people showed an interest in us, they gave us much courage and strength. I often feel really happy, honoured and blessed to be able to do this sort of work. RM: No matter the topic, we always want to share it and talk about it through our music and performances. That’s why the series we’re currently working on is called ‘LOVE YOURSELF’. Because we wanted to share what it means to love oneself and what true love is, it would be a great honour if we’re able to express these points through our music and performances. Q. When you listen to 'Fake Love', Jimin’s singing part is quite high and the dance continues to take place at the same time so it (the song) must be quite difficult to perform. JM: Originally, it was difficult to learn the dance because the style was quite different from what we’d done previously. That’s why, even up until now, the performance is hard to digest (pull off) and if my throat isn’t in good condition, there would be many parts that would be quite difficult to successfully perform live. Q. Jin’s part also seems quite difficult. J: I’m in charge of the same parts as Jimin and it’s quite high so we’ve had occasions where we spoke to (Bang) PD-nim (about it). The main producer said that when we struggle most with the notes, our voices sound the best… so it feels like our voices and vocal ranges are getting higher and better as we progress. Q. I heard you guys holiday together once a year so is it still fun to do so now? What about when you hang out together? JK: No matter how you look at it, we’re always together so when we go on holidays, it seems like we play around all day but it’s not actually like that. We do lots of trivial things together too. We buy food to cook and eat together, we play games, we do lots of small things too, since we’re on vacation. Q. What if you weren’t singers? I often hear talk amongst members about what they would be if they weren’t celebrities or, in this case, BTS. What do you think? JM: When I was in 3rd year of middle school, I was conflicted about two potential pathways. I wanted to be both a policeman and a stage performer and in the end, I chose this path. However, if this wasn’t meant to be, then wouldn’t my desire to be a policeman have grown stronger….? V: My strongest desire was to become someone like my father. And because I dreamt of being a singer, I took up a musical instrument, the saxophone. I learnt it for 3 years and have since stopped for about 8 years, but wouldn’t I have become a saxophonist….? JH: In my case, I liked tennis during elementary school so if I hadn’t become an artist, I wonder if I would’ve become a tennis player. Tennis player Jeonghyun is really cool. Even his ceremony was cool. S: I originally entered the company as a producer so I would’ve been a producer or 8 o’clock news announcer/reporter. In that position, from that position, I would’ve watched over BTS…. Q. Please say a few words to your fans, ARMY. JK: I think so many things have happened, positive things, in order for us to have reached the position we are in now. V: It’s because of ARMY that we are the BTS we are today. If ARMY didn’t exist, the BTS of today also wouldn’t be in existence. J: I really want to say thank you for always being with us. RM: It would be good if you could trust that we’ll always protect the things that we consider of important value. JM: I’m always thinking that if it’s possible, I want to spend my whole lifetime making more memories together with everyone. S: It would be great if our existence can be a source of strength for one another for a very, very long time into the future. J: I definitely want to convey that I’m extremely thankful for you always being together with us. I love you. JH: Both when I lose or when I experience a beautiful moment like the blooming of a morning glory, I want it to be shared with you. Thank you. [article source] Despite how far they've come and how much they've achieved, they still remain the same humble, grateful and passionate individuals. At every single chance they get, they do their best to project a beautiful, loving and praise-worthy image of ARMY to the rest of the world, even when people insinuate or even express outright that they think ARMY are crazy or operate on some negative spectrum or other. Their passion for their craft and love for and dedication towards ARMY - and humanity in general - is truly inspiring so it's no wonder that they evoke the same sort of passion, love and dedication in legions of diverse people around the world. Like Tae's mentioned in a previous interview, I don't know how much farther up they can rise but if they can stay true to their core values and intentions (and I'm sure they will), I truly believe these boys can change society for the better. And not just society within Korea or America, but ultimately, the world. They're already changing the status quo within their homeland AND the mainstream Western music industry, who knows what's going to happen next? The only thing that we know for sure is that ARMY will be there with them every step of the way, through thick and thin, and hopefully in even larger masses in future, because these boys deserve to achieve every single one of their goals and dreams. And the world needs to hear, feel and experience everything they have to offer.

  11. BTS Send Japanese Album 'Face Yourself' to the Billboard 200 4/9/2018 by Jeff Benjamin The boy band scores a rare chart success for Korean acts recording in Japanese. It doesn't matter what language they sing in: BTS seem to always conquer the Billboard charts. The Korean-pop phenomenons see their new Face Yourself album debut at No. 43 on the Billboard 200 with 12,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending April 5, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 4,000 were in traditional album sales to help them land at No. 41 on Top Album Sales. The feat is particularly impressive for BTS as Face Yourself is the band's new Japanese-language album featuring only two previously unheard new songs -- along with new intro and outro tracks -- and their Korean hits re-recorded in Japanese (a common practice in the K-pop scene). The project has been almost a year in the making with the Japanese version of 2016 K-pop hit "Blood, Sweat & Tears" released in May 2017. Many K-pop artists record Japanese music, but it tends not to resonate in the same way the Korean music does in America with only a handful acts even able to send their Japanese releases to any U.S.-focused charts After scoring their first entry December 2015 with The Most Beautiful Moment In Life, Part 2, BTS now extend their reign as the K-pop act with the most album entries on America's definitive albums chart to six. They are followed by G-Dragon (who has three to date) with fellow boy band sensations EXO and BIGBANG boasting two apiece. Earlier this year, BTS member J-Hope scored his first Billboard 200 entry with his Hope World mixtape. Face Yourself also debut at No. 1 on Billboard's World Albums chart to mark BTS' fifth chart-topper and puts them ahead among all K-pop acts. For months, BTS was tied with B.A.P, GOT7 and Red Velvet with four No. 1s each. For those keeping score, G-Dragon, EXO and Girls' Generation all have three No. 1s on World Albums while SHINee, Taeyang, f(x), Seventeen, Girls' Generation-TTS and the late Jonghyun all boasting two. This is also the first Japanese album by a K-pop act to hit No. 1 on World Albums. With the surprise announcement of the BTS gearing up to release new music via their 'Euphoria' theme video, it shouldn't be long until BTS is conquering even more chart territory.

  12. SEOUL, April 10 (Yonhap) -- Lotte Duty Free, South Korea's top duty-free operator, released a promotional music video featuring K-pop boy band BTS on Tuesday, the company said, as it aims to attract more foreign customers amid growing hopes for the return of Chinese tourists. The song, titled "You're so Beautiful," is now available at the company's official website as well as on its YouTube and Facebook accounts, with subtitles provided in English, Chinese and Japanese, the company said. The K-pop sensation BTS has been serving as the duty-free operator's model since November 2017. Lotte Duty Free's move to expand its presence in the global market comes as local retailers are gearing up for a potential influx of Chinese customers following a senior Chinese official's visit last month. During a meeting with President Moon Jae-in, Chinese State Councilor Yang Jiechi said there will be "tangible results in the near future" when Moon requested that China terminate what is seen as economic retaliation for the deployment of an advanced U.S. missile defense system in South Korea. The number of visitors from the neighboring country has sharply dropped in the past year as China took restrictive measures against South Korean firms, including the prohibition of group tours to the country.

  13. SEOUL, April 3 (Yonhap) -- LG Electronics Inc. said Tuesday it clinched a contract with South Korea's popular K-pop band BTS to promote its smartphones in the global market. Under the agreement, BTS will promote LG Electronics' smartphones, including a new flagship model expected to be unveiled in June, through advertisements and various other platforms, including social media. The company said it hopes that BTS, which boasts popularity not only in South Korea, but in the United States, Europe and South America as well, will help beef up its brand image in the global market. BTS became the first K-pop group to win the "Top Social Artist" honor from the Billboard Music Awards last year and broke new ground by performing at the American Music Awards. LG Electronics said it chose BTS as the new models as the group's talent and attitude toward fans fall in line with its business strategy. The South Korean tech giant said it has also been focusing on improving fundamental features of smartphones, while continuously taking care of its users by providing software updates. "As BTS has become world-class artists on the back of their continuous efforts and strong capabilities, LG also plans to establish a new image for its smartphones based on perfection and distinctive convenience," the company said. LG Electronics has been struggling to revitalize its handset business, which has been posting shortfalls for several years. Shown in the picture released by LG Electronics Inc. on April 3, 2018, is South Korea's popular K-pop band BTS, which recently became the new model for the tech company.
