BTS are the breakthrough K-pop band. For the first time, this book tells the story of the Korean boy band with a global army of fans, who have propelled their heroes to the top of the charts all over the world.Seven good-looking boys - Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook... - who can dance as well as they can sing, are tearing up the global music charts. Nothing new? Think again. BTS, who rose to fame in their native South Korea in 2013 and who sing almost entirely in Korean, are now a sensation in the US and on the cusp of superstardom in the UK.K-pop is a growing phenomenon in the West. Over the last three years, it's steadily garnered a huge following among social-media-savvy teen girls. With their clean-cut good looks, fabulously choreographed and perfectly executed dance moves, and catchy blend of soft hip hop and RnB, BTS are leading the advance: in September 2017, their album 'Love Yourself: Her' reached No. 1 in the iTunes chart in the UK and over 70 other countries.Extensively researched, and written in an upbeat and accessible style, this book interweaves the success stories of each of the boys with how the band got together, while documenting their amazing rise to fame in Southeast Asia, and then the US and UK. It includes 16 pages of full colour photographs of the band playing live, posing and having fun.
