Esquire wrote, “While K-Pop as a genre has been around for decades, BTS is arguably one of the vanguard acts to pioneer K-Pop’s immeasurable worldwide success.”
“With a fanbase that is aptly described as “ARMY,” BTS’s beloved septet has rapidly redefined boy bands, fandoms, and pop music itself, ” Esquire added.
Furthermore, according to Esquire that the Kpop boy band’s “hits “Dynamite” and “Life Goes On” offer a blend of pop, hip-hop, disco, and R&B, with catchy melodies that are often laced with social commentary-based lyrics.”
