Big Hit Entertainments producer Bang Si Hyuk opened up about BTSs Billboard Music Awards nomination for Top Social Media Artist.
During a recent interview, Bang Si Hyuk revealed the secret to BTSs success on the Billboard charts. I think its because we consistently tell stories through our music. There arent many K-pop groups who tell their own stories, but there are many singers who do this in the United States. BTS takes a lot of risk with their music, so I think the Western critics are impressed by this, he explained.
He then revealed that he wanted BTS to continue receiving lots of international love. Personally, I grew up only listening to Western music so Im very biased towards Western media. Thats why Im trying to tailor BTSs music [so that it suits Western culture]. However, since BTS is still a K-pop group, I make sure their performances and knife-like choreography are catered to Korean media, he shared.
Lastly, Bang Si Hyuk talked about BTSs nomination for Top Social Media Artist. I didnt even imagine this happening. It would be great if they ended up winning, but Im happy that they even got nominated. It definitely wont be easy for them to win since all the other nominees are amazing, but I do look forward to the effort that our passionate ARMYs will be making. More than anything, I want BTS to be invited to the awards ceremony, he expressed.
Meanwhile, BTS recently won an award at the 9th Annual Shorty Awards.
