It is hard for anyone today to not know who BTS is, as the boy-band obtained Global Superstars status. The seven-member musical troop has broken several records in their six years, making history as the first Korean group to reach the top of the Billboard 200 chart – not once, but three times. Not only that, but they were also part of Time 100’s list of most influential people of 2019 and and been offered a Recording Academy membership invite to help choose Grammy Award winners.

The Fake Love singers joined the band in 2013 in Seoul, and had their breakthrough in the United States in 2017. They became the first Korean group to win a Billboard music award, and ended up collaborating with some of America’s biggest names like Halsey, Nicki Minaj and Steve Aoki. Now that they will be making a trip to the region, we could only hope that they announce a concert in the UAE, fulfilling their Army’s (the nickname for their fanbase) dreams.
