BTS, the world's most popular boy band, has, in an exclusive interview with NDTV, spoken about their passion and the massive following they enjoy among young fans across the world.
Hit-spinners ("Dynamite", "Boy With Luv" and "Save Me") BTS release their new album titled BE on November 20th. In this exclusive interview with NDTV's Entertainment Editor Rohit Khilnani, the band's seven member group in Seoul explained what they wanted this new album to inspire and change.
BTS, whose average age is 25, became the first Asian and first non-English speaking act to headline and sell out Wembley Stadium in 2019. The band members Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook featured on the cover of Time magazine in 2018 as "Next Generation Leaders".
Last year, music legends Bono and The Edge (U2) and Katy Perry chose NDTV for exclusive interviews in India. BTS joins international mega-stars to appear on India's Most-Trusted News Network.
How big is BTS in India? The tweet announcing their interview saw 69,000 likes and 24,000 retweets. #BTSOnNDTV was trending at the No 3 spot in India on Twitter after its big announcement of the interview. This is the sort of frenzy the band inspires in the famous "BTS Army", which is how their fans like to refer to themselves.
