Home Music Top of the Pops: Phenom Korean Boy Band BTS is Number 1...

Korean boy band phenoms BTS are the musical guests on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. Their appearance should cause pandemonium since their new album is number 1 this morning on iTunes. Not only that, the seven tracks that comprise the “album” are all in the iTunes Top 10 singles.

BTS stands for Bangtan Boys. The singers are called Jungkook, Jimin, V, Suga, Jin, RM, and J-Hope. Or RM (previously Rap Monster)/ Kim Nam Joon, Jungkook/ Jeon Jeong-guk, Jin/ Kim Seok Jin, Suga/ Min Yoon Gi
J-Hope/ Jung Ho Seok, Jimin/ Park Ji Min, and V/ Kim Tae Hyung.

“Map of the Soul: Persona” is the name of the album. And the singles are “Boy with Luv” featuring Halsey and six others including “Make it Right.” They’re all in Korean, so I’m not sure why the US teen market is so interested. Are they cute? They’re no Dino, Desi, and Billy, that’s for sure.

If I were One Direction, I’d be getting together fast.
