BTS is one of the biggest groups in the world

BTS debuted in 2013, but it wasn’t until 2015 that they caught the attention of the Korean public and K-pop fans around the world. Then, BTS was invited to the Billboard Music Awards in 2017, which made them even more well-known among Americans and international audiences.

Since then, BTS has won numerous international awards and charted countless times in different countries. The group had their first number one song on the Billboard Hot 100 in August 2020, and they have since landed at that exact same spot two more times.

BTS is currently one of the biggest groups in the world. Their achievements have even led a lot of people to compare them to The Beatles.

BTS has a habit of working hard since they were trainees

One thing that may have been a big factor in BTS’s success is their habit of working hard. As trainees, they put a lot of effort into developing various skills as artists. Even as global superstars, the BTS members apparently have not decreased their dedication to their work.

BTS’s long-time producer Pdogg recently shared with Fast Company, “BTS, when they were trainees, after their day was over and they were done with the work, they would still come into the studio and write songs. I thought it was because they were still starting out, but even [now] when they go on world tours, in their hotels or on the plane, they continue to work on their songs.”

BTS has revealed that they did get more free time during the pandemic, but they still spent a lot of time writing music, learning choreography, and preparing for online performances.

BTS’s strong friendship may have also helped them stay together

Hard work is not the only thing keeping BTS afloat in the cutthroat music industry, however. The group also has a strong bond with each other that has allowed them to stay together. BTS has been a unit for over seven years, and they have often spoken about how much their friendship has developed.

For example, V once said of his fellow members, according to, “I think these are the people that know me the best. We know each other better or more than our families know us.”

Meanwhile, Jungkook also talked about their friendship in an episode of the docu-series Break the Silence.

“There’s a kind of invisible connection,” he said, according to Koreaboo. “I think they make me feel emotions that are hard to describe. It feels like we’re companions, and they helped me realize what friendship is.”
