1. Trilogy is their favorite:
The Korean discography of BTS includes two EP trilogies in addition to their two full-length albums, Dark & Wild (2014) and Wings (2018). They began their career with the Skool trilogy: 2Cool 4Skool in 2013, O! RUL,2? and 2014’s Skool Luv Affair.
Songs that relate to students’ lives and hardships were included in the trilogy. There was a trilogy of albums released in 2015-16, “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life” (Part 1, 2, and Epilogue albums), featuring experimental soundscapes and nuanced meanings related to the experiences of young adults.
2. They produce their music:
Every band member is a songwriter, but Suga and Rap Monster mainly gained popularity as a producer! Furthermore, they wrote a lot of songs for their hip-hop dance style!
3. The K-Pop legends:
Before the era of BTS, few people know about the K-pop industry! But after the entry of BTS, there is not a single person who doesn’t know about K-pop, especially BTS!
Moreover, their songs have meaningful lyrics that are for youth! If we talk about the present time, they held a free concert for their fans! It is the world’s best music band!
Let’s take a closer look at their separation (2022):
It is the rule of South Korea that every person serves in the military at 30! So, that’s why BTS is disbanding for two years! During the whole duration, all the members would perform as a soloist! In addition, the band would again be back on the screen in 2025, and they would perform together! As an army person myself, I am sure that every fan will be pleased by this new release.
