The band’s name, BTS, is an acronym of the Korean phrase, Bangtan Sonyeondan, which means Bulletproof Boy Scouts in English.
BTS was formed in 2010 after the CEO of Big Hit Entertainment, Bang Si-hyuk, met the leader of the group, RM. Bang Si-hyuk was impressed by RM‘s rapping, and he came up with the idea to form a boy band. However, the group debuted in 2013 with the single album, 2 Cool 2 Skool, the first part of their school trilogy series.
Before that moment, the group BTS had been featured on the singles and projects of other artists in South Korea. They worked with artists such as 2AM and Lee Seung-gi to do amazing music projects.
The group chose the name BTS because it signified their aspiration “to block out stereotypes, criticisms, and expectations that aim at adolescents like bullets.”
Ever since they released their debut work in 2013, BTS has scored many wins in the industry to become the leading Korean music group in the world.
In 2014, the band released its first Korean-language studio album, Dark & Wild, and Wake Up‘s Japanese-language studio album. Their sophomore Korean-language studio album, Wings, was released in 2016. Wings are their first project that sold one million copies in South Korea.
Four years after their debut, BTS crossed over to the global music market, setting the record of being the first Korean band to do so. The band led the Korean Wave into the US and Europe.
BTS received an RIAA certification for their single, Mic Drop. In 2017, they became the first Korean act to top the US Billboard 200 with their album, Love Yourself: Tear. Also, they are one of the few music groups since The Beatles to have four US number-one albums in the space of two years. More so, in 2018, BTS‘ album Love Yourself: Always became the first Korean album to be certified platinum by the RIAA.
In 2020, BTS recorded another milestone by being the first all-South Korean act to reach number one on the Billboard Global 200 and US Billboard Hot 100. They earned both wins due to their single, Dynamite. The song also secured a Grammy nomination.
Also, they achieved the feat of being the fastest music act since Michael Jackson to accumulate five US number-one singles. They accomplished this win thanks to the songs Savage Love, Dynamite, Life Goes On, Permission To Dance, and Butter.
The group BTS has sold over 32 million albums on the Gaon Music Chart in the past nine years. They currently hold the dual records of the best-selling artist in South Korea History and the best-selling album in South Korea. They achieved the latter feat with the album Map of the Soul: 7.
They are the first Asian and non-English speaking act to sell out Wembley Stadium and Rose Bowl Stadium. The sold-out shows happened during their Love Yourself World Tour held in 2019. BTS has secured two Grammy nominations. They have also won six American Music Awards, nine Billboard Music Awards, two Brit Awards, and 24 Golden Disk Awards.
