BTS have been selected as TIME‘s Entertainer of the Year!
On December 11, BTS was named and awarded as the ‘Entertainer of the Year’ by American magazine TIME.
“It’s not only the most popular group on music charts,” TIME said, “They’ve become the biggest band in the world.”
TIME praised the huge success of BTS in the era of the new coronavirus infection as they constantly continue to communicate with fans. “Other celebrities tried to leverage this year’s challenges; most failed. But BTS’s bonds to their international fan base, called ARMY, deepened amid the pandemic.”
For the group, life didn’t feel too different: “We always spend 30 days a month together, 10 hours a day,” Jin says. The boys have also expressed confidence in their future activities, saying, “We will be a group that can give fans comfort and relief.”
Meanwhile, BTS was nominated for Best Pop Duo and Group Performance at the 63rd Grammy Awards, the first music awards ceremony in the U.S., on the 24th of last month. The award ceremony will be held on January 31 next year.
