South Korean boy band BTS have enjoyed enormous global success in recent years, growing a loyal and dedicated fanbase with their infectious pop music that tackles issues such as LGBTQ rights and mental health issues.
Also known as the Bangtan Boys, BTS is a Korean expression meaning "bulletproof boy scouts". BTS members include Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook.
The band have released six studio albums in their career and are predominantly known in the UK for their hit songs Fake Love, Idol, DNA, Fire, Spring Day and MIC Drop.
BTS are releasing their seventh studio album, Map of the Soul: Persona, in April 2019.
Earlier this year, BTS jetted off to the Grammy Awards in LA, where they made history by becoming the first Korean artists to present an award at the star-studded ceremony.
BTS are touring in 2019 and have also announced that their BTS WORLD TOUR ‘LOVE YOURSELF: SPEAK YOURSELF’ will be coming to London's Wembley Stadium for two dates on 1 – 2 June 2019. The band will make history, as the first ever Korean artists to headline the world-famous stadium.
BTS last came to the UK in October 2018, selling out two shows at London's O2 Arena.
