[Article] 170121 "Jungle" Jin, I can promise you that this is a fan recruiting show of BTS eldest hyung


If you considered Jin merely as the visual eldest hyung of group BTS, your thought will change when you watch "Law of the Jungle".

On the January 20th broadcast of SBS variety show "Law of the Jungle in Kota Manado", the Jungle family are given the "Survive without ___" mission. 

They had to fish in the middle of the sea and sleep on a floating house. Their survival on the sea was intense. When the family moved to land, they presented various scenes. The family divided into two groups, Land team and Sea team to find food. With Chief Kim Byungman as the leader of Sea team, the "Little Kim Byungman" JinGong Brothers, Jin and actor Gong Myung joined forces.

Not many people expected much from his acting when BTS V stood in front of the audience for the first time as actor Kim Taehyung. He received sarcastic remarks on how idol actors easily take over characters with prominent roles and most importantly, people were worried for his first acting and for this first attempt in a historical drama.

Their achievement shines brighter because they have won these awards in just 3 years since their debut and they are not from a big company. They are the first artist from a company other than the big 3 entertainment companies like SM, YG or JYP to win the MAMA Daesang.

[Article] 161119 [Interview①] Bang Sihyuk, "When I see fans crying while watching music videos.. that's when I really realize the power of BTS"


Korea is not the only stage for BTS. They've put their name for the third time on the US Billboard Chart which measures the worldwide popularity of pop music and they also penetrated into the conservative UK's main album chart. They ranked No.1 on iTunes Album Chart in 23 countries including China, USA, Brazil, Canada, Finland, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore, Norway and Taiwan. It's not easy to understand the unstoppable parade of this 4-year-old group when you look at the stale "KPOP Craze".

BTS has built a solid global fandom and Bighit Entertainment CEO Bang Sihyuk is behind them. He is a hitmaker who produced perfect ballad songs which touched the listener's heart like 2AM's "Can't let you go even if I die" and Baek Jiyoung's "Like being hit by a bullet", BTS didn't start off easily from the beginning. Since BTS is a group with two keywords "Hip Hop" and "idol", it wasn't easy for them to be recognized from both fields. People were biased against them and called them "Idol group that do hip hop music" and this itself created a high entry barrier.
