Bangtan Sonyeondan, Bulletproof scouts, ARMY, Dynamite or Butter… yeah you are right! I am talking about ‘The 7 boys’ from South Korea— Teenage Sensation band BTS!

How does BTS Influence this generation?

BTS is one of the most popular boy bands amongst the current generation. There are millions of fans around the world who adore this band! Their songs evoke a different feeling in their fans’ minds who are spread all across the globe. The band has seven members— RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, Jungkook.

To me, BTS is a wonderful band as their music and lyrics are funky, relatable, poppy and fun. The one thing I love most about BTS is the way they reciprocate their fans’ love. BTS fans are know by the acronym ‘ARMY’ which means Adorable Representative M.C for Youth.  I have to admit that I am a part of this ARMY. To a few, BTS is love and support, but for a few fans BTS is their life. Recently one of BTS’s fan took his adoration of the band to a whole different level. He spent $100,000 on 18 cosmetic surgeries to look like one of the band members. Isn’t that outrageous?

For a 13 year old like me, something that really inspires me is the struggle of BTS. Not all the band members have had an easy life. RM, the band leader had to watch the famous sitcom FRIENDS to learn English with his mom. V, with his family’s support, started taking saxophone lessons and in sometime became trainee for BIG-HIT entertainment.

There are many reasons to like BTS— their beautiful lyrics, their incredible dance moves, how they use every opportunity to mention ARMY, and the way they break all their records and set new ones. But what I really like about them is the way they inspire everyone and encourage them to accept and love who they are, as is evident from their appearance on talk shows and interviews. 

I asked my friends what they loved about the band, and this is what they said:

I like everything about BTS. I love their motto, dancing, singing, song beats, looks, and personality.

I think that BTS is very talented group of performers and deserve the world. To start from scratch and become huge icons isn’t an easy task. BTS has made us love them in many ways and made us love everything about South Korea.

BTS teaches people that it’s okay to be themselves and they have a reason to live, they should embrace every flaw they have, and not be scared of people’s judgement. BTS, and their music is like a warm hug to me, telling me that everything will be okay eventually.

One thing that I have learnt from BTS is that work hard to achieve anything, never give up, learn how to love your self and learn how to accept others. That’s what they stand for, and that is why I admire them.
