In 2018, BTS became the first Korean act to have a top-40 UK hit; they also topped the US Billboard 200 on two occasions.
Earlier this month, the band appeared on The Graham Norton Show, where Whoopi Goldberg gifted them the shirt off her back.
Reviewing their live show in NYC recently, NME wrote: “It’s…the first time they – or any Korean musicians – have ever played a stadium on this continent.
“It’s an impressive achievement, reaching a level of this kind while performing songs whose lyrics are largely in Korean to an audience of all races, and one that…can be put down to the effects of social media and globalisation…BTS have already made history but, as they tell their fans, this is really just the beginning.”
