FutureStarrWhy #BTS Wasn't at the 2023 #Grammys Together
Despite their nomination for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, none of the members of BTS were in attendance at the 2023 Grammys. Instead, they were staying in South Korea to complete their military service.
Their lack of presence at the awards show is a huge blow for their fans, who have been hoping that they would win. But it also highlights a few things about the group that make them unique from other artists in the industry.
K-pop superstars BTS were nominated at the 2023 Grammys for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance ("My Universe" by them and Coldplay), and Best Music Video (Yet to Come) but didn’t attend. The septet is clearly the biggest South Korean act in history, but they lost out to Taylor Swift for a music video and Sam Smith and Kim Petras for a pop duo/group performance.
The reason BTS was missing from the awards show is because one of the members of the group, Jin, has enlisted for military duty. This is the first time that a member of BTS has served in the military, and it’s a huge milestone for the group.
Jin is the oldest member of the band, and he recently became the first to enlist for South Korea’s mandatory 18-month military service. It’s a big deal for BTS and the fans who have been following the band throughout their career.
It’s also a major step in the long process of the group getting back together. In October, BTS’s label, Big Hit Music, confirmed that all seven members would serve in the military; a move that comes after months of debate over whether or not they should be exempted from mandatory conscription.
According to CNN, the group’s seven members – Jung Kook, Suga, Jimin, RM, V and J-Hope – will report for military duty at different times. It’s not clear when each member of the group will enlist, but it will most likely be before their 30th birthdays.
During that time, the band will prep for their service and promote and release solo projects. The first to enlist is Jin, who turns 30 on February 18, 2023.
The K-pop scene is a global pop culture epicenter that shook up the music industry when it first broke onto the world stage. With their slick, polished looks and addictive discography, K-pop groups have become an increasingly popular trend that's spawned collaborations with huge stars like Selena Gomez.
Despite being in a genre that can be considered bubble gum pop, K-pop groups aren't afraid to tackle social issues or speak about mental health. This is especially important to the members of BTS, who have been known to address their own insecurities and anxieties in their music.
This approach to music has influenced them throughout their careers, allowing them to stand out from other idol groups. They've been known to speak out about sexual abuse, gender discrimination, and other issues that they believe need to be addressed.
In addition, the band's hip-hop influences allow them to remain true to themselves and their fans. They've been praised for their rap skills, and they're one of the few non-Western artists to land on Billboard's Top Rap Album chart.
Though their lyrics are often about love and romance, the members also veer into deeper topics that have helped them stand out from the other Korean pop acts. For example, rapper RM has spoken out about gender identity, stating that he's a man and should be able to love whoever he wants, and Suga has committed to reading a feminist book list.
Their openness about their own insecurities and their willingness to discuss controversial issues have earned them a devoted fanbase who want more from their artists. This fandom has also helped them reach a wider audience, which means they've been able to connect with a diverse array of people around the globe.
Hip-hop is a genre of music that emerged in New York City in the 1970s as a way to bring together youth from diverse backgrounds. It is built around four main pillars: DJing, rapping (also called MCing), breakdancing, and graffiti.
Although its roots are firmly planted in the United States, hip-hop has expanded to encompass several subgenres and cultures across the world. It is most commonly characterized by a strong beat and a rapping vocal track.
The hip-hop movement also influenced many other musical genres, including rock, pop, and R&B. Its influence continues to this day, and a large number of artists are still actively working in the genre.
BTS is one of the most popular Korean hip-hop groups in the world, and it is responsible for bringing a new generation of fans to the genre. The band has sold over 100 million albums and has received numerous awards.
While BTS has been nominated for a Grammy Award in the past, they were snubbed this year. They were snubbed for their music video for “Yet to Come” and for their pop duo/group performance with Coldplay for “My Universe.”
But even though BTS was snubbed this year, they are still nominated for a Grammy next year. They have a lot of potential to win a Grammy, and they should be given the chance to do so.
In 2020, they released a new single called “Dynamite” which has already broken YouTube streaming records. It also debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and Spotify global charts.
The song is a huge hit and has gotten ARMYs buzzing. The boys are also set to release a fifth Korean-language studio album, Be, in November of 2020.
BTS, a septet of K-pop superstars whose music videos and performances have garnered a global following (known as ARMY), have broken numerous records. They have gained recognition as “21st century Pop Icons” and are known for their authentic and self-produced music, top-notch performances, and interacting with their fans.
They are also known for their socially conscious lyrics, which often describe the pressures of modern teen life in South Korea. Their songs are attuned to a variety of issues, including mental health awareness, self-love, and violence against women and girls.
The group was initially conceived by Bang Si-Hyuk, a music producer who started his own studio, Big Hit Entertainment, in 2005. He scouted a talented teen rapper in Seoul called RM for a new project. Eventually, seven other rappers joined the group.
Ultimately, Bang chose to break from the traditional K-pop structure by building the band not as an idol group but rather as a supporting crew around a single talented teen. He opted not to have strict contracts and curfews, and he allowed his group to discuss the pressures of stardom.
In doing so, he opened the doors for honest musical expression. He credited fellow songwriters like Ed Sheeran, Troye Sivan, and DJ Swivel for helping him craft the unique sound of BTS.
After years of hard work, the group was finally able to conquer the US music scene. Their music has topped the Billboard charts, and they’ve collaborated with big-name artists including the Chainsmokers, Steve Aoki, and Nicki Minaj.
While they have yet to win a Grammy, BTS were nominated for two categories at the 65th GRAMMY Awards (2023): Music Video for “Yet To Come” and Pop Duo/Group Performance for “My Universe” with Coldplay. Unfortunately, they lost to Taylor Swift and Sam Smith, but that doesn’t mean the snub isn’t painful for fans.
When K-pop fans heard that BTS were up for three Grammy awards at this year’s ceremony, they wondered if they’d be making an appearance. The group is up for Best Music Video, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, and Album of the Year (as featured artists on Coldplay’s Music of the Spheres).
The Korean band’s massive fan following was elated when it was announced that they accumulated their most Grammy nominations in a single year yet. The ARMY was especially thrilled that the boys landed nods in three major categories, which means they’re up for a total of seven awards at the ceremony.
Despite their nominations, however, BTS didn’t win a single award this year at the ceremony. Instead, they lost to Taylor Swift for Music Video and to Sam Smith and Kim Petras for Pop Duo/Group Performance.
It’s a shame that the Grammys did not recognize BTS more because they are one of the most popular and successful groups in the world. The group has earned a reputation for tackling topics like mental health, criticism of the education system, self-love and perseverance in life through their music videos and music.
In addition to winning a record amount of attention from the music industry, BTS has also managed to get more recognition at Grammy awards than any other Asian artist in history. In fact, the group is currently the most nominated Asian artist at the awards with a total of five nominations.
When they did finally win their first Grammy in 2021, BTS’s victory was a major turning point for the group and their fandom. But a lot of people were disappointed with the song that got them their first nomination, which was a disorienting mashup of disco-pop anthem “Dynamite” and a slow-paced ballad called “Butter.”
It’s also worth noting that their last Grammy win came in 2022, when they received a Best Music Video nod for the track “Beautiful Trauma,” an emotional and vulnerable look at a difficult time in their lives. Moreover, it’s also worth noting that their last two years have been a bit of a charm offensive for BTS, who have been snubbed multiple times by the Academy before racking up record numbers of nominations in 2023.
The global superstars, who have been sweeping the world with their music for a few years now, were nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Album of the Year.
Despite the nominations, members RM, V, Jin, Suga, J-Hope and Jimin decided to stay in Korea for their military service. They plan to reconvene as a group in 2025 after all members have completed their mandatory duty.
BTS is a Korean boy band that has been capturing the hearts of millions around the world since their debut in 2013. They have amassed ARMY (their fandom) who are passionate about the group’s music, uplifting messages, and their organic bond with each other.
Known for their catchy songs and social media presence, BTS has been on the rise as one of the world’s most popular K-pop groups. They have also been a huge success in the United States and have been nominated for multiple Grammy awards.
Their music talks about mental health, loss, the journey towards self-love, individualism, and the troubles that school-age youth experience. It also often references literature, psychology and philosophies.
While BTS has been nominated for three Grammys, it failed to secure a win for the second year in a row. They were nominated in the categories of Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their collaboration with Coldplay and 'My Universe', Best Music Video for 'Yet to Come', and Album of the Year for 'Music of the Spheres'.
As a result of this, BTS fans are furious. They’ve started to term the Grammys as “Scammys” and even argued that the awards show’s voting process is fake.
They also questioned the Recording Academy’s conservative attitude toward dance music, idol groups and artists of color. They were also disappointed that the Academy didn’t use an actual music video for Yet to Come when presenting their nominations.
Besides the controversy, many BTS fans are still excited about their nominations and hope that they’ll eventually win a Grammy in 2023. The group’s social media accounts are active and interactive, so they are able to connect with their fans online in a meaningful way.
Although they’ve yet to win a Grammy, their popularity is expected to continue growing as they become more well-known worldwide. Their uplifting music, their organic relationship with their fans and their focus on more serious issues like mental health are all factors that contribute to their success.
It is also worth noting that BTS members are currently serving in the military. The seven-member group plans to return together once all their members complete their service.
The Korean band BTS, currently the world’s most successful pop group, is facing a significant setback that could potentially end their careers. The band’s eldest member, Jin, will soon enter military service as he turns 28 in December.
Previously, every able-bodied man in South Korea was required to serve 18 to 21 months of military duty. Exceptions were granted to men who had served the country in other ways, such as medal winners at the Olympics and Asian Games, or classical musicians.
But after a massive global cultural impact and a number of awards, BTS was rewarded with the Order of Cultural Merit in 2018. This means that the government can delay their enlistment by up to two years, which is why BTS’s eldest member is eligible for deferral until December 2020.
After a year-long debate, lawmakers passed a bill in December 2020 that allowed pop stars who had made a significant impact on the country’s culture and economy to postpone their enlistment until they turned 30. Though it was controversial at the time, BTS’s success has caused a spike in public support for their exemption.
In fact, a Gallup poll found that around 60% of South Koreans support their bill. But this is not a guarantee that the band will receive their exemption.
A lawmaker named Yoon Sang-hyun proposed an amendment to the draft law that would let K-pop stars, as well as engineers and researchers working in the technology sector, undergo only three weeks of military training instead of 18. This bill is still pending.
Despite the uncertainty, the band members decided to take a break from performing together and pursue their solo projects. This allowed them to focus on their own individual goals while also fulfilling their mandatory military duties.
The members are expected to resume BTS activities in 2025, according to Big Hit Music, the group’s management company. Their upcoming projects include a solo album and a collaborative single with Coldplay.
While it’s a bittersweet decision, fans are happy that the band will be able to honor the country’s military policy while also keeping their careers in tact. Until then, you can keep following the band on Twitter and their social media accounts to stay updated on their future plans.
BTS has had a whirlwind year, so it’s no wonder that fans were excited to learn they were up for a Grammy nomination. It’s the third time in a row that the Korean boy band has been nominated, and it marks a huge milestone for them.
They were also nominated for the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category, along with Coldplay. Their nomination came on the heels of their decision to take an official hiatus from the group and focus on solo projects.
Now that they’re taking a break, it’s important for BTS to find their own voice as solo artists. This is why several of the members have started releasing their own solo albums.
J-Hope was the first member to release a full-length album, and it was released in mid-2018. His project, Hope World, was an interesting mixtape that focused on his personal life and lyricism.
The album isn’t completely unlike the kind of music BTS has made over the years, but there are a few noticeable differences that fans may notice. One difference is that the album features a softer sound than the group’s previous work.
Another is that it is a bit more experimental than the majority of their work. While BTS has always had a unique sound, this is the first time they’ve gone for something so different.
In the past, the group has focused on a more commercial approach to their music, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not capable of releasing music that has more of an impact on audiences. For example, RM’s solo debut in 2015 was more rap-oriented than the songs they’ve released in the past.
While the group has a lot of potential as solo artists, it’s still not easy to be an artist without a label backing your music. Fortunately, the company behind BTS, HYBE, has a plan in place to help them succeed as solo artists.
HYBE has already hinted that Suga, Jimin, V and Jungkook will release their own solo albums in 2023. However, there is no official timeline for the other members. Despite this, it’s still very exciting to see the group working on their own material.
BTS has snubbed the 2023 Grammys, avoiding music’s biggest night for the first time in several years. Instead, the group will be taking a well-deserved hiatus from the spotlight as they prepare for their military service and focus on solo projects.
The group, which consists of RM aka Namjoon, Jin aka Kwonwook, Suga, Jimin, V and Jungkook, has been nominated for two awards this year. Their nominations include Best Music Video for “Yet to Come,” and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their collaboration with Coldplay on “My Universe.”
It’s been a big year for the band. They made history by becoming the first Korean group to ever be nominated for a Grammy, and they also broke the Billboard charts for their first-ever all-English single. This was a huge moment for K-pop fans across the globe, and it also signaled BTS’s status as one of the most influential groups in the world.
However, some ARMYs were disappointed by the results because of an image the Recording Academy used to show nominees for Best Music Video. They said that using an image of a different music video meant that the GRAMMYs didn’t respect them or their work. They also criticized the Recording Academy for not doing research to find the right image.
In addition to their Grammy nominations, BTS have been nominated for two AMA awards in 2022 and another three awards in 2019. They’ve been nominated for three Guinness world records, and they’ve won four.
These nominations have helped them build a strong fan base in the West, and have also been instrumental in their rise to the top of the global music industry. As their fans continue to grow, they’re also transforming the way boy bands are perceived in the Western music industry.
Throughout their career, BTS have been committed to socially conscious music and activism. They’ve tackled issues such as sexual assault, gender inequality and toxic masculinity with their music. In addition, they’ve been vocal about mental health and self-love.
This is what sets them apart from other K-pop groups, and it’s what has allowed them to be so successful in the United States. Their artistic compromises have paved the way for other non-English speaking artists to get recognition from the American music industry.
K-pop superstars BTS are the most popular music act in the world, and their fans ARMY were hoping to see them at this year’s Grammys. However, despite being nominated for three awards, they didn’t make an appearance at the event.
As a result, ARMY has been outraged that BTS isn’t being recognized for their musicality. They’re no different from ABBA or other artists with no ties to the Grammys who have been awarded recognition for their musicality.
After a successful run as one of the world’s most popular K-pop groups, BTS was scheduled to make their first Grammys appearance in years. But they never made it to California, leaving fans wondering why.
The group announced their hiatus last June and has since been focusing on solo projects. They’ve worked with Coldplay on their first collaborative single, “My Universe,” which they performed for the first time at the 2021 American Music Awards. Several members have also released their own solo projects.
J-Hope and RM have both released albums this year, while Jin has also dropped his debut single, "The Astronaut." They’ve toured across the world and have collaborated with artists such as Snoop Dogg.
In the past, the band has also been known to take short breaks in order to pursue their individual careers. But that hasn’t stopped them from being one of the most popular groups in the world, with their songs and content dominating social media.
While a number of their songs have been nominated for the 2023 Grammys, BTS isn’t expected to appear at this year’s awards show. That may be for good reason, as they’re currently focusing on their solo projects.
This announcement has caused confusion among their fandom, who are assuming that the boys have a long-term break in the works. However, the group’s management company has reassured fans that BTS isn’t on hiatus at all and will be working on their solo projects while the members complete their military service in South Korea.
For their part, RM has said that they’re taking the time to grow as individuals. It’s an important step in their development as artists, he says.
Meanwhile, members like Suga and Jungkook have also been releasing solo projects. They’ve also been performing on shows such as Run BTS and Mnet Countdown.
They have also been working on projects with video games and movies, such as the upcoming film Cookie Run: Kingdom. And of course, they’ve been collaborating with other K-pop groups as well.
While the BTS boys are on their hiatus, they’re still preparing for new solo projects and their return as a group in 2025. They plan to release a full album and perform live again once all seven members have completed their military service.
BTS is one of the most popular K-pop bands in the world, and their fans call themselves ARMY. They’ve created a huge impact at the Grammys for the past three years with their powerful performances. However, this year they didn’t attend the ceremony.
The band’s management company Big Hit announced Monday that they will be taking a hiatus until all seven members complete their military service. RM, Jin, SUGA, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook will all need to spend 18 to 21 months in the South Korean military.
It’s a pretty big deal for the global ARMY, especially when you consider that it will mean that they won’t be performing together for a while. The label put the news out on Weverse, a social media app for fans, and it’s been met with tons of reaction.
Many of these reactions are lighthearted and encouraging, while others are just plain witty and funny. We’ve rounded up some of the best ones for you to read below!
In South Korea, all able-bodied men are required to enlist by the age of 28 and serve in the military for at least 18 months. Exceptions have been made for athletes, classical musicians, and other high-profile figures who have served in the military before.
But for a group like BTS, who are wildly popular worldwide and who have had such a huge impact on the culture of Korea, the decision to go into the military was tough. The members had to weigh their desire to serve against the national interest, which is to keep South Korea strong in the face of a shrinking pool of military recruits.
So it seems that they’ve come to a compromise: The group will take a hiatus, but they’ll be back together in 2025. That should give them plenty of time to continue making music and promoting their individual projects.
The eldest member of the group, Jin, is going to be the first to serve, but other members will probably follow his lead and enter the military based on their own schedules. Until then, the group is taking a break while they focus on their solo careers and promotions for the group.
BTS is a seven-member Korean pop group with a devoted army of fans around the world. Their fandom is akin to The Beatles in the US and One Direction in the UK. Their popularity is attributed to their high-quality songs and their unique style that blends elements of K-pop, hip hop, and R&B.
They released two #1 albums in the US last year, sold out a world tour, and made a big impact in 2018. It seemed like a no-brainer that they would receive a nomination for a Grammy award in 2023.
However, it looks like that may not be the case. According to Forbes, the Korean boy band is ineligible for a Best New Artist nomination.
A Best New Artist is a category that honors new artists and groups that are gaining prominence in the music industry. The category is usually one of the most anticipated, because it’s a way for fans to see if they can spot an exciting new act that has the potential to go on and become a major star.
In order to be eligible for a Best New Artist, an act must have released a minimum of five singles or tracks and a maximum of 30 singles or tracks in their career to date. They also cannot have submitted for the category more than three times.
The criteria for an act to be eligible for the category are a bit vague, so the Recording Academy has set some numerical limits to make sure that any winner is truly "new."
But that doesn’t mean they won’t get an award in 2023. The boys are nominated for three categories in 2023, including the “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance” category for their collab with Coldplay, “My Universe,” and the “Best Music Video” category for their collaboration with Sia, “Yet to Come.”
This is the first time a K-pop group has received a total of three Grammy nominations in a single year. In addition to these, they are also up for the “Best Rap Album” award, the “Top Social Artist” and the “Record of the Year” awards at the upcoming 2023 Grammys.
The South Korean boy band BTS is a seven-member group with a unique style that blends hip-hop and pop. They have been a staple in the K-pop world since their debut in 2013, and their popularity has grown beyond their native country to the rest of the world.
The group has earned a host of accolades in their short history, including multiple American Music Awards and Billboard Music Awards. Their music has also garnered them several nominations for the Grammys. In fact, they were nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Album of the Year at this year’s Grammys.
While ARMYs were hoping that the group would be present at this year’s Grammys, they were disappointed to learn that the boys were not going to perform. Their decision was largely due to Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook’s military service, which has forced them to take a break from the music industry.
Despite their hiatus, fans are still eager to see them in action. They even took to Twitter to send them wishes, but it appears that they’re not going to make an appearance this year.
Aside from the music, ARMYs are passionate about BTS because they’re a diverse and inclusive group who promote diversity in the media, speak up about issues that impact Asian Americans, and are a positive influence on the world. They’ve made a name for themselves by making good music that transcends genre, and they’ve developed an organic bond with their fans.
They’re a group that has built a loyal fan base based on the way they treat their fans. They always keep their ARMYs in mind, and they’re known for being a tight-knit family.
Their uplifting music and uplifting messages have led them to be one of the most successful Korean acts in the music industry, and they’ve been nominated for multiple Grammys. In fact, they’ve been nominated for 3 Grammys this year for their work with Coldplay on “My Universe.”
The Grammys may have snubbed BTS this year, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be back in action soon. They’ve announced that they’re taking a hiatus for the foreseeable future, which means that they’ll likely be taking a much-needed break from the music industry to focus on their military service and other projects.
The members of K-pop supergroup BTS — Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook — did not appear at the 2023 Grammys. Their label, Big Hit Music, announced in October that they were going to be on hiatus until 2025 while all members took military service.
In this case, their absence is actually quite understandable. But they should have deserved at least one nomination, given their recent successes (see: “Butter”) and ongoing creative output.
BTS is one of the most popular K-pop groups, but the band is on an indefinite hiatus. After releasing their three-disc Proof album in June, the group announced that they were taking an "extended period of rest." Their management company Big Hit Music said they'll be focusing on solo projects while serving their mandatory military service.
In a recent interview, V revealed that he's been putting in a lot of time and effort into his new solo album. He's listening to each track and removing songs that don't fit the overall vibe of the project.
He also revealed that he's currently working on a Disney+ series called In the Soop: Friendcation with The Marvels' Park Seo-Joon, rapper Peakboy, Parasite's Choi Woo-shi and Soundtrack #1's Park Hyung-sik.
RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin and V are all taking time to work on their solo projects. They're also taking time to focus on their careers and their relationships with each other.
They're also preparing for their upcoming four-night live performance in Las Vegas. The concert will air on April 8, 9, 15, and 16 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The 2023 Grammy Awards are just around the corner and fans are wondering if BTS will be attending this year's event. They're up for three awards this year and ARMY is hoping that they will make an appearance.
According to a recent report by HITC, BTS will not be attending this year's GRAMMYs because of their indefinite break and the members' solo career commitments. However, their ARMY supporters are still sending them well wishes and support.
While they're on their hiatus, BTS will continue to release new music and collaborate with a few other artists. For example, they're teaming up with music producer Benny Blanco for his latest single, "Bad Decisions," alongside Snoop Dogg.
Another project that is still in the works is a special BTS-themed Xbox game. The band will be featured on the game, which is set to be released in August.
The group is collaborating with rapper Snoop Dogg on a new song that will be available for download in August. The song is titled "Bad Decisions," and it features all seven BTS members, including RM, Suga, Jungkook and YG Entertainment's rapper J-Hope.
In October, BTS’s label Big Hit announced that the seven members would start their military service. They’ll all enlist and serve in the South Korean military until 2025, according to Big Hit, and Jin, 29, will go first.
While this was news that made many K-pop fans a little nervous, it’s not entirely unheard of in South Korea. Some of the country’s most prominent classical musicians and dancers, for instance, have been allowed exemptions from military conscription, so they can continue working as entertainers.
It’s also been a common practice for K-pop artists to take a break and return to the industry once they’ve completed their military duties. For example, Super Junior and Exo are well known for taking a year off to pursue their careers while the individual members serve in the military.
However, this is the first time that a K-pop group has been nominated in more than one Grammy category at a single ceremony. BTS landed three nominations this year, including Album of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their work on Coldplay’s Music of the Spheres.
Despite their success, many BTS fans are worried about their future as a group. The members haven’t been active on social media since they went on hiatus, and the group’s fan following is enormous.
Some fans have urged them to keep working and to release new music while they’re away from the public eye, but others have said that the band should take a step back and focus on their own projects. Some experts say that solo projects will allow the members to develop their own styles and personalities without relying on each other.
This is a difficult situation for BTS to be in, and it’s unclear how they’ll cope. It’s not uncommon for artists to have a difficult time breaking through as solo artists and getting noticed.
As a result, some fans have called for the band to take a break from their music and return after they’ve finished their military duties. This could give the members time to focus on their personal development while still being able to tour and perform abroad with their fellow BTS members.
BTS, a seven-member K-pop group, is currently on hiatus. Members RM, J-Hope, Jin, Suga, Jimin, V, and Jungkook have been busy with solo projects and their military service.
They’ve also toured Japan and the United States. They’ve performed at the White House as part of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, and they’re scheduled to speak with President Joe Biden in May to discuss diversity, inclusion, and representation.
The group has a powerful social media following, and they are always engaging with their fans. They have over 25 million followers on their official Twitter account, 30 million followers on their more personal Twitter account, 40 million subscribers on YouTube, and 33 million followers on Instagram.
In addition to their music, the band has been involved in many philanthropic initiatives throughout their career. They’ve partnered with UNICEF for their Love Yourself campaign and have spoken at the United Nations about Generation Unlimited, a campaign that aims to educate young people and promote vocational training.
This year, the band was nominated for Album of the Year at the Grammys (for their collaboration with Coldplay, "My Universe"), Best Pop Duo/Group Performance ("Yet to Come"), and Best Music Video (“Yet to Come”). However, none of the members stepped on the red carpet as part of the awards ceremony.
That’s not surprising, given that their nominations are linked to Coldplay’s, but it is disappointing to ARMYs who are hoping for a big win. But, there’s good news: they’ll get another chance in 2022.
At the end of the year, the group scheduled a several-week break to give them time to “re-inspire and recharge with creative energy,” according to a statement from their music company, Big Hit. They then returned in late 2019, with all guns blazing and a new era in the works.
Now that all seven members of the group have completed their military service, they’ll reconvene in 2025, after which they’ll release a new album and tour. Their upcoming release, Proof, will likely feature a variety of different genres and concepts, but the underlying theme will remain the same.
In the years since their debut, BTS has become one of the most popular and recognizable K-pop groups in the world. They’ve been invited to countless high-profile events, from music awards shows and music festivals to award ceremony red carpets. They’ve also been featured on music videos and album covers, as well as in publications and commercials.
But when they didn’t win a Grammy this year, many fans started questioning their status and the group’s future. However, the team defended their musicality and that they didn’t deserve to miss out on any awards.
For starters, it’s important to note that while they didn’t win the Grammys, they have been nominated several times. For example, they were nominated alongside Coldplay for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Album of the Year.
They’ve also received nominations for songs like “My Universe,” which they performed at the 2021 American Music Awards, and their collaboration with Coldplay, “The Astronaut.” In addition, Tobias Jesso Jr. won a GRAMMY for Songwriter of the Year, Non-Classical at the 2023 GRAMMYs Premiere Ceremony.
As for their future, BTS is currently on hiatus while the members focus on solo projects and complete their mandatory military service. They’re planning to reconvene as a group in 2025, once all members have finished their time serving.
The group’s label, Big Hit, released a statement that explained the decision: "Both the company and the members of BTS are looking forward to reconvening as a group again around 2025 following their service commitment."
When it comes to the upcoming GRAMMYs, the boys aren’t going to fly to Los Angeles for the big event. Instead, they’ll take a trip to the South Korean capital for the ceremony.
This will be the first time BTS has been back in Seoul after their hiatus, and it’s a big step for the group. As they prepare for their upcoming albums, the members are reportedly spending time with their families and making sure to be prepared for the next chapter of their career.
The boys have also been teasing their next single, which they’ve hinted could be out soon. In the meantime, they’re also preparing for their upcoming Permission to Dance on Stage in Seoul concert in March of 2022.
