By Edward Leary | August 09, 2017 06:28 PM EDT


BTS are, without a doubt, one of K-Pop's most successful and popular acts in history. Coming from a small company named BigHit Entertainment, the group climbed their way to international stardom and the only thing missing for them is a viral dance trend/challenge. That aside, check out these 5 reasons why BTS if the top K-Pop act!

1. They Were Nominated & Won A BillBoard Award

We all know the saying, "Started from the bottom, now we here." That perfectly applies to BTS. The boy group started off small but are now a force to be reckoned with! 2017 was their most successful year as the boy group was not only nominated and invited to the BillBoard Music Awards in America, they also took home the gold for 'Top Social Artist' as well! Success!

2. They Have Featured In Countless International Media 

From BuzzFeed, BillBoard and Rolling Stone to iconic media outlets such as the New York Times, the boys of BTS have been the talk of news & media outlets as well as entertainment companies all around the world. They were recently featured in New York Time's 'What Music Do Americans Love the Most? 50 Detailed Fan Maps' list, coming in at 44th place. 

3. Their Story Telling Concepts

Not only are their MVs wild and eye-catching, but the stories behind them are another unique factor as well. BTS had stated in the past that they strive to represent the underdogs and troubled youth. BTS' rapper Rap Monster has always released music that touched bases with culture, government, the hardships of growing up and more.

4. They Trend Worldwide

Winning the BillBoard Awards wasn't the only time the boys of BTS trended worldwide. They have blown up Twitter and Facebook's real live trending streams numerous times to the point that people and celebrities had commented wondering who "behind the scenes" was or how when they used the #BTS that their logos would appear. BTS basically broke the internet.

5. Their Shockingly Large Fandom - ARMYS

Justin Beiber, The Jonas Brothers, and One Direction fandoms have nothing on the numbers BTS' fandom ARMYS are made up of. Without ARMYS, BTS would not have risen to the fame they claim and love today - and the boys are aware of that. That is why they thank them in every way they can. ARMYs are so powerful that BillBoard even released an article about '5 Reasons Why BTS Army Are The Best Fandom.' 'Nuff said!
