The seven-member K-pop group BTS continues to make headlines around the world. At last month’s Mnet Asian Music Awards, BTS was named the Artist of the Year for the second year in a row. The group’s song “DNA” is the first by a Korean boy group to claim a spot on Billboard’s Hot 100.
BTS also became the first K-pop group to get on the singles charts in the U.K. and Germany, with a remix of “Mic Drop” by world-class DJ Steve Aoki, featuring rapper Desiigner. I was very surprised to hear the new version on a local radio station while driving the other day.
BTS’ Nov. 19 performance at the American Music Awards brought the star-studded audience to its feet at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, catapulting the group to fame in the United States.
