K-pop group BTS began the Permission To Dance challenge in July. BTS ARMY reinvented the blockbuster song by choreographing their own moves and sharing videos on YouTube. BTS members- RM, J-Hope, Jimin, V, Jungkook, Jin, and Suga are still breaking records with their two recently released tracks- Butter and Permission To Dance. The songs reigned on Billboard Hot 100, scripting history. In 2020, the Bangtan Boys released their first official all-English track titled Dynamite, which earned them their first Grammy nomination.
In an interview with Jaeki Cho for Amazon Music, BTS members recently talked about their success, their definition of masculinity, BTS ARMY, and several other things. They were asked if they ever expected to have such a huge fan following, to which BTS leader RM answered, "When you are in the eye of a hurricane, you can’t find out. When the hurricane goes away, we’ll find out." Jaeki Cho highlighted that it is not often that K-pop bands survive this long and how they still manage to flourish. RM replied, "When we first started, I was honestly concerned about how we’d last for seven years being such different people, but I think the differences turned into a synergy for us to fill in the gap for each other."
