BTS Billboard debut

In episode 2 of BTS’ Monuments: Beyond The Star, the Dynamite singer receives a surprise announcement from Bang Si Hyuk about their first BBMA trip to Las Vegas. Winning Artist of The Year in South Korea, the group looked thrilled to debut at the BBMAs.

After finishing their speech rehearsals, the members were suddenly asked to walk the red carpet in just 30 minutes. Jin, the oldest member, shared that people at the award show were puzzled, not knowing who they were or why they were famous. Some even didn’t understand the term ‘K-pop idol.’ Fortunately, the cheers from the ARMYs present helped BTS regain their composure and deliver their best performance and speech.

The “Epiphany” singer says, “Who are they? They are an idol group I have never heard of. I don’t know why they are so popular. We became a hot topic for that reason.” He further adds, “And I believe that was all due to ARMYs’ cheers and support for us during those events and appearances.”

Later, Suga in the clip looked pleased as he exclaimed, “A lot of our fans are here. About two years ago, I had a dream that went just like this, that we are all together…”

RM felt that they were starting everything from the very start. “We were doubting whether these people were actually doing this for us. I am not sure.”
