A lot of B’s there.
So I had to do this. Like I seriously had to do this…
I know I haven’t been active on my blog lately, but this news got me all fired up and ready to say hello back to my blog! It got all my brain juices flowin’. My inner fangirl is screaming and shrieking like a banshee! So just to warn you all, this is going to be a fangirl post. I lot of my followers may not be able to relate, but to those who do – Annyeonghaseyo!!!
So I woke up yesterday morning to this news all over twitter – and I was shook!
First off, let me give a small intro to the group, just a little, cause we might take all day if I try to dissect BTS in a post. Maybe I’ll do an appreciation post specifically for BTS if any of you requested it, but right now I’ll just go back to the topic at hand.
So BTS, an acronym for Bangtan Sonyeondan (English trans: BULLETPROOF BOYSCOUTS), is a 7-member South Korean
legends boyband formed by Big Hit Entertainment. They debuted on June 13, 2013, and has been gaining popularity locally and internationally especially internationally ever since. They are known as one of the very few Kpop Groups who co-writes and produces their own tracks.
Billboard magazine recognized the group as one of K-pop’s top competitive music producers of today: “Co-writing and producing on nearly every track, the K-pop phenoms proved how they can compete with top pop acts.” All members of the group participate in composing and producing the group’s songs. The Daily Dot describes them as “setting a standard for the bands that will come after them. Their souls are in their performances because they helped to create them—an investment that makes all the difference between memorizing dance routines and embracing them with passion.”
Yes, they’re that talented. Plus their dance choreographies are LIT!
Anyway, they’ve been continuously breaking records at the Billboards for the past year or two. And now they’ve been nominated for Top Social Artist Award at this year’s Billboard Music Awards. Going against big names like Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez and Shawn Mendez. This also gained them the title as the first Kpop group to be ever nominated for the BBMAs.
After the announcement of their nomination last April, fans (aka ARMYs) have questioned whether the boys will attend the award show or not. However, since ARMYs are eager to see BTS at the BBMAs, this happened – the voting which started last May 1st (and will end at 6pm PDT on May 21st) produced this result in only 24 hours – a showcase of the fanbase’s dedication to BTS.
After a week of voting, ARMYs prayers were answered, and an official announcement of their attendance at the BBMAs was confirmed. A photo of their invitation was even uploaded to BIG HIT’s Official Twitter Account.
ARMYs are savage voters don’t you think? Gotta love all that support! ❤
Also, yesterday was also the release of BTS’ Blood, Sweat, and Tears MV (Japanese Version). You have no idea how long I’ve waited for this version to get released. It was confusingly beautiful. LoL!
I am not even going to try to look for hidden connections and theories about this video
BTS’ MVs are full of those because trying to do so is seriously giving me a terrible headache. I’m going to be leaving that to the experts!
