Sunday Spam: The Let’s-Learn-A-Thing-Together Edition (pt. 3)

This time around we are gonna learn about BTS or 방탄소년단 (bangtan sonyeondan: bulletproof boyscouts).  These boys have been on my radar forever but with their current promotional track I have succumbed to full on love.  It is time for me to do all the research I need to do in order to be a hardcore ARMY.  Why don’t we go on that journey together?

Step 1: Music!

A handful of their songs have been released in Japanese and they re-shot some of their music videos in Japanese which I added at the end of this playlist.

Step 2: Group Info!

BTS is signed under Big Hit Entertainment and were considered the new artist of the year last year.  Basically what that means is they are the hottest new thing out there.  I have to agree,  wholeheartedly.

They have their own YouTube channel where you can find their dance practice videos as well as vlogs the boys recorded for their fans.

They also have had a few network shows: Rookie King, China Job, and American Hustle Life which is currently airing.

Their fan club is called ARMY or Adorable Representative M.C. for Youth.

Their genre is hip hop.

Step 3: Members!

    Position – Leader, Lead Rapper
    Apparently the whole group was made because the CEO at Big Hit heard Rap Monster Rap and knew he needed a group.

That’s all I have for you today.  The new groups always seem to have fewer things for me to share with you.  I know these boys will grow and become even better than they are now which is pretty damn good.  I wish all of the luck to BTS!  I will be watching.

Tomorrow we have the first musing post classes.  I’ll let let you know what I think of them all.
