VOGUE IS SHOOK OVER BTS EXCLUSIVELY TAILORED YSL SUITS:

BTS is back on the red carpet and looking better than ever. Following a scene-stealing appearance at the Billboard Music Awards in May, the Korean boy band sensation has returned to the West Coast for their second U.S. awards show: the 2017 American Music Awards, which will also feature their first major televised stateside performance. For the historic occasion, the members returned to Saint Laurent designer Anthony Vaccarello, whom they trusted to once again deliver seven modern black suits, each tailored to the individual.

V chose a sleek black jacket with a Mandarin collar and silver military buttons running down the front with oversize suit pants, while Suga wore a cropped lapel-less coat over a cream-colored henley. Jin also went sans lapel in black tuxedo satin, which blended seamlessly with Jungkook and RM’s head-to-toe black (the former went classic, the latter added leather). The final two members, Jimin and J-Hope, chose to branch out: Jimin by adding a gunmetal moto jacket, J-Hope with a modernized changshan suit coat. Standing together, they reinforced their message of shared style with a personal twist. It won’t be the last time we see it.

[Article] Rising K-pop Superstars BTS Will Perform at The AMAs

South Korean boy band BTS joins the lineup for this year’s American Music Awards, during which they’ll premiere the first stateside performance of their hit single “DNA” on Nov. 19.

The AMAs revealed the news through social media today, spurring a frenzy among the act’s dedicated fanbase, known collectively as ARMY. The announcement comes after months of growing interest in BTS, the only Korean group to ever break into the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 album chart. 

“It is such an honor for BTS and BigHit Entertainment to be invited to the American Music Awards as one of the performers,” said a rep from the band’s label. “Our partners in the U.S. have helped us pave the way in every way possible, and together we are making history. We are also excited to show our fans, ARMY, the first ever U.S. live TV performance of ‘DNA.'” 

“DNA” is the lead single off of the band’s chart-topping album Love Yourself: Her. The expressive electro-pop track peaked at No. 67 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in September, released a few months after BTS dominated attention at the Billboard Music Awards in May when they took home the Top Social Artist award. 

Propelled by the support of their immensely dedicated ARMY, a fanbase that thrives on social media and revels in the millennial struggles represented through the band’s music, the septet has reached historic heights on American music charts and seen much interest from western audiences. The AMAs, which take place on Nov. 19 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, mark the boy band’s second appearance on an American award show this year. 

Though a Korean group may seem like an odd fit for the AMAs, BTS’ represents the increasingly-internationalized face of America’s music industry. Keeping the momentum going as their popularity is on the rise, the group has worked with likes of The Chainsmokers and Steve Aoki, and artists including Charli XCX and Desiigner have teased potential projects with the boy band. 

BTS joins Christina Aguilera, Selena Gomez, and Diana Ross as performers at this year’s AMAs.

[!] BTS was chosen by TIME as one of the 25 most influential people on the Internet

Overtaking Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez to spend 27 consecutive weeks atop Billboard’s “Social 50” chart, which tracks popularity across different platforms, would be an impressive feat for any artist. It’s especially so for BTS, a Korean boy band — the full name, Bangtan Sonyeondan, loosely translates to “bulletproof boy scouts” in English — whose seven members have managed to cultivate a virtual fanbase that could give the Beyhive a run for its money. In 2016, the so-called BTS Army propelled Wings to No. 26 on the Billboard 200 — the highest-ever debut for a K-pop album — and earlier this year, they helped BTS win Top Social Artist at the Billboard Music Awards. During their acceptance speech, band member Rap Monster (real name: Kim Nam-joon) gave credit where credit was due: “This award belongs to [everybody] around the world who shines the love and light on us,” he said. —Raisa Bruner

Things k-pop/k-culture fans should avoid

1. Eat Your Kimchi (Simon and Martina)

2. Chad Future

3. Justifying your idol’s racist, sexist or other discriminatory comments/ actions and labelling them as just ignorance

4. Bashing girls who interact ( breathe the same air)with your ‘oppa’


5. Bashing other groups/ being salty when your faces don’t win

6. Developing a ‘sasaeng complex

7. Babbling random Korean words to people who don’t even understand it or want to hear it.

8. Equating Korean culture as just K-pop

9. Perpetuating the image of international fans as wannabe Asians or Koreaboos

10. Insulting new fans who don’t know about every k-pop scandal, idol, song or back story and telling them they’re ‘not real fans’

BTS Spill Details on Their Upcoming World Tour – Plus, Will They Ever Record Music in English?

BTS has definitely gone global.

The Korean boy band was greeted by hundreds of fans at LAX airport on Tuesday as they landed in the U.S. ahead of their performance at Sunday's2017 American Music Awards – and has plans to take their show on the road to meet even more of America’s ARMY.

“Our fans, ARMY, I love you,” J-Hope told ET’s Denny Directo during an interview at their AMAs rehearsal on Wednesday, as the band opened up about their upcoming 2018 world tour.

“We will visit more cities, and I think we will definitely be like, adding more stages. I don’t know the particular time of when we will be coming back [to the U.S.], but it will definitely be doper and bigger,” RM revealed. “It’s gonna really happen.”

“Yeah, of course,” J-Hope added of whether he, RM, Jin, Jimin, Jungkook, V and Suga plan to perform tour dates in Europe and Brazil as well.

“We just finished this tour named Wings, and I think it is going to be like, a new series for the tour, so of course including United States, it’ll happen, I think. I hope it will happen everywhere, every continent,” RM shared. “We want it too.”

Recording music in English might be less of a priority for the group, through they’re definitely breaking into the U.S. market.

“We’re releasing our new song, ‘MIC Drop’ remix with Steve Aoki and Desiigner next week. It’s going to be like, an English version of something, so I think we will try some versions like that later,” RM explained, as the band dished on who they hope to collaborate next.

J-Hope and the guys pressured Jungkook to reveal his love for Justin Bieber, which he confirmed. “Yeah.”

V, meanwhile, revealed his desire to work with Daniel Caesar. “I love him,” he raved.

As for RM’s wishlist? That would be “Sabrina Claudio, Drake and, of course, Migos.”

For now, however, the group is focused on their upcoming AMAs performance – which RM teased they couldn’t be more “ready” for.

“We’re going to do it like we always have been,” he declared.

At my job every day we put an inspirational quote on a dry erase board, this week when it was my turn I put Jae’s quote, “Don’t just dream, set goals. Dreams are improbable possibilities. Goals are possible possibilities that you work out one step at a time”, and everyone was amazed at how eloquent it was. I didn’t have the heart to tell them it came from a Korean band member who also says things like, “I am a food eraser”.
