Who is The BTS?
BTS, or Bangtan Sonyeondan in Korean, is a famous South Korean all-boys band founded in 2010. The band consists of seven members: Jin, J Hope, RM, Suga, Jimin, V, and Jungkook. Furthermore, the septet recorded its debut quite recently in 2013 with Big Hit Entertainment.
Over the years BTS has made a reputation around the world through its distinct song themes. The boys, however, plan on touching our hearts by voicing out the modern problems of today’s youth. Troubles of adolescents, mental health, adulting, and other psychological issues, this band comes up with an easy solution; self-love.
Peek into the band’s career
We have countless memories of the seven boys. And certainly, we will get a little nostalgic when we go down memory lane to look at their achievements.

Back in 2015, we found that ‘The Most Beautiful Moment in Life pt 2’ had made it to the chart at number 171. And that marked their journey to reach the zenith of success. Recently we had ‘Map of the soul: 7’ standing tall at no. 1 in the chart.

- GRAMMYs 2020
Sadly, they were not nominated for the GRAMMY award. But that’s not the end. We can indefinitely say that the K-pop jewels stole that night’s show with their phenomenal performance. We all know that a Grammys’ stage is exclusively reserved for its nominees. But it seems that BTS broke the convention that night.
Their contribution to the society for a better cause
Firstly, J Hope had donated 100million to ChildFund Korea for helping the children of Tanzania, East Africa. Secondly, we all know about Big Hit’s generous donation of $1 million to the organization in June 2020. “We are moved by the generosity of BTS and allies all over the world who stand in solidarity in the fight for Black lives.” Kaylee Scales, managing director of Black lives matter, said.
Thirdly, they took to Twitter to raise their voice against racist attacks on Asians and other ethnic groups. In fact, BTS has faced harassment earlier being Asians.
We know about their partnership with UNICEF for promoting ‘Love myself’, an anti-violence campaign.
Meanwhile, We have read about their contribution of 100 million to the Seoul Samsun school. They did this for music education for the hearing impaired students.
BTS’s upcoming album ‘Proof’
On May 4th, BTS announced that their upcoming album Proof is an anthology album. ‘Proof’ is all set to stream globally on June 10th at midnight. But what is it about? We have the answer. ARMY brace yourself for you are about to go on a rollercoaster ride of memories. From what we hear, the tracklist will involve their musical journey right from 2013 to the present, in addition to three new songs.
“The BTS anthology album that embodies the history of BTS will be released as they begin a new chapter as an artist that has been active for nine years to look back on their endeavors” is the statement we hear from the management of Big Hit Music.
While we are still in a haze about the tracklist we can, however, guess a few of their hits there. Like Fake love, Idol, Boy with Luv, Dynamite, Life goes on, and Butter.
The album was first teased during the evening of the group’s four-night Las Vegas residency in Allegiant stadium. The date “2022.06.10” appeared on the screen with the tagline “We are bulletproof.”
” We look forward to your love and support for BTS’s new album. Thank you”, Big Hit company added at the end.
BTS has always been one of our favorites. Firstly, because of the massive hard work that won them fame at a young age. Secondly, they have touched our hearts with their generosity. And to think we are going to witness their entire journey in one single album? That is something worth the wait.
