Meet BTS, the K-Pop Group That Dethroned Justin Bieber at the Billboard Music Awards!

One winner you might not have been familiar with at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards was the K-pop group BTS, who won the Top Social Artist award!

The group dethroned Justin Bieber, who has won the award for the past six years. The guys beat out four huge artists – Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, and Shawn Mendes – to win.

So, who are the guys? BTS is made up of seven members: Rap Monster, Jimin, Suga, J-Hope, Jin, V and Jungkook.

BTS is an acronym for the Korean term “Bangtan Songyeondan,” which translates to “bulletproof boy scouts” in English. Something rare about the group is that the guys have writing and production credits on many of their songs, which tackle topics such as mental health, female empowerment, and other socially conscious issues.

While the group is huge in South Korea, they’ve already sold out shows in the U.S. and their music has sold well all around the world.
