Now in 2018, after 5 years of hard work and struggle, the septet from South Korea has achieved their dream as they topped the Billboard ranking with the album ‘Love Yourself: Tear’. This is the first time that a South Korean music band achieved No.1 ranking since Divo’s Ancora achieved it in 2006.

At that time, the only thing that was missing from the BTS was a hit song that can attract more fans. But then came the song ‘I NEED YOU‘ which filled that missing gap.
The song ‘I NEED YOU’ made to the top 5 of Gaon’s weekly singles chart and became one of the most favorite songs of South Korea. Also, this song was the first verified song of the band. I NEED YOU was then followed by another hit ‘Dope‘ which was highly liked by the fans.
Dope shows the hard work BTS put in on the lyrics of the song. Then came the part 2 of the album The Most Beautiful Moment In Life which consists of only one song, ‘RUN‘. The time 2nd part of the album The Most Beautiful Moment In Life released, the first part had made the BTS famous among the fans. Part 2 was the first album to make it to the top 200 of the Billboards albums and was ranked 171st. The following May, BTS released Young Forever compilation of the album The Most Beautiful Moment In Life which consists of the songs like ‘Save Me’, ‘Epilogue’, and ‘Fire’.
