Breaking News: South Korean boy group BTS will be on the cover of an international issue of TIME Magazine!
TIME posted the group’s cover photo posted it as part of an article on their official website.
The post titled “How BTS Is Taking Over the World” looks at how the group has worked towards becoming a worldwide sensation.
In the interview, BTS member J-Hope explained, “Something unique about our team is that we recognize the value of the team. This has an influence on our promotions as well.”
In English, BTS’s leader RM remarked, “As a Korean we love our country and we’re proud of our country so much. And it’s even just an honor to be called an ambassador of Korean K-pop.”
Another member, Suga, added, “Many people in our parents’ generation were born after the Korean War. When they were younger, they weren’t able to eat or dress well, so the fact that in our generation, we — our father’s sons — are representing Korea and spreading Korean culture, the older generation, rather than the younger generation, feels more proud about that. They also enjoy it while watching the news. My father gets very pleased feeling proud about things like that.”
BTS recently completed the U.S. leg of their sold-out “LOVE YOURSELF” tour, which they capped by filling the Citi Field stadium in New York City with over 40,000 paying fans. On October 10, the group performed at the O2 Arena in London.
