BTS has been named “Entertainer of the Year” by TIME
TIME released a list of the most influential figures in each field this year on its official website on the 10th, selecting BTS as “Entertainer of the Year.”
TIME said, BTS has become the largest band globally, not just the K-pop group that has performed the most on the music charts. I don’t need any more words. In 2020, they broke all kinds of records with multiple albums, and with live streaming, they reached the peak of their popstar ranks. BTS did it at a time when the world stopped, and people struggled to stay ‘connected,’
TIME went on to say, The bond between BTS and their global fans, ARMY, has deepened amid a Pandemics where the world has stopped; in an era full of pain and cynicism, BTS has been faithful to the message of kindness, connection, and self-engagement.” This is the basis of the relationship between BTS and fans. BTS has built a real community, and fandom spreads BTS’s positive message to the world.
TIME also released an interview video with Entertainer BTS of the Year.
“This year, fans and members gave us hope and happiness,” BTS said. We all made songs, danced and practiced together, and our daily lives were happiness and hope,” he said. “The reason for our existence is that many people listen to our music.” It came up from the bottom, but it feels like we’ve grown together (with our fans). They seem to know each other’s deep hearts. If Korean culture can develop and move forward in the future, we will do our best in the areas we can,” BTS said.
