BTS has proven a lot of things. One of these was when they cracked the music industry kahit hindi sila nanggaling sa Big 3 music companies ng South Korea (SM, YG, at JYP Entertainment). And yet, they have conquered the music charts ng SoKor at yanigin ang buong mundo dahil sa kanilang chart-topping hits.
Here are the 12 reasons (and we know there are a lot more) kung bakit kinikilala sila ngayon ng ARMYs (Fandom name ng BTS) at marahil ng buong mundo bilang “Best Boy Band”.
1. When they attended the United Nations General Assembly
Hindi na bago sa BTS ang salitang “first” sa dami ba naman ng record na kanilang na-break.
BTS is the only K-Pop boy group that was given the opportunity to speak before the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). RapMon’s speech tho.
President of the World Bank: “you have one of the best groups, the boy band BTS right here”

What’s more, we were moved and inspired by the speech.
2. Best-dressed K-Pop boy band
The group is composed of best dancers, rappers, composers, and what? Best-dressed!

3. When Ellen DeGeneres compared them to “The Beatles”
Kahit saan magpunta ang legendary group na The Beatles, talaga namang sigawan at hiyawan ang kanilang fans na trademark ng “Beatlesmania”. Ang sikat na talk show host na si Ellen DeGeneres ay kinumpara ito sa warm welcome ng international ARMYs sa BTS noong sila’y nag-guest sa kanyang show.

4. When their world tours are certified sold out
Sino ba namang grupo ang maituturing mong “Best Boy Band” kung hindi naman kayang maka-sold out ng concert? Sorry pero ang BTS, hindi lang isang concert kundi world tours ang kaya nilang i-sold out! Ang kanilang 2017 WINGS Tour at ang kanilang current BTS World Tour: Love Yourself na matatapos sa Feb 2019 ay parehas certified sold out. The power of ARMYs!
5. When they collaborated with UNICEF with their Love Yourself Campaign
Isa sa mga dahilan kung bakit gaano man karaming fanwars ang pagdaanan ng mga ARMYs ay talagang hindi nila kayang bitawan ang pagmamahal nila sa BTS.
6. When Jimmy Fallon himself introduces BTS as the biggest boy band on the planet
Last month lang ay nag-guest ang worldwide phenomena sa The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Jimmy shows he’s a real intellectual because he knows what he’s doing! Wala na, finish na!
Biggest boy band on the planet! 💜💜
You are the best @jimmyfallon we purple you 💜💜

7. Awards and more awards
BTS is great, alam naman natin ‘yan. Pero iba pa rin kapag may malakas at masipag kang fanbase to help you out sa mga award shows na kailangan ng puspusang botohan. Sabi nga sa 2013 tweet ng leader ng BTS na si RapMonster: “Teamwork makes the dream work”
A website even counted at least 30 awards and nominations for BTS since 2013 up to the present. (http://kdramabuzz.com/list-of-awards-received-by-bts-in-music-awards-2013-2018/)
teamwork makes the dream work.

8. And they still get nominated
Wala pa yatang expiration ang kasikatan ng BTS sa sunod-sunod pa nilang nominations sa mas malalaki pang award shows. To vote BTS, you can check these sites below:

9. They write their own songs!
They are not just a bunch of good looking Korean guys who can dance and sing. Karamihan, kung hindi man lahat, ng kanta ng BTS ay sila mismo ang nag-compose.
Marahil isa ito sa mga dahilan kung bakit minahal sila ng ARMYs, dahil sa mga kanta nilang hindi lang masarap pakinggan kundi tagos hanggang puso ang message.
Listen to 21st Centry Girls, No More Dream, and Silver Spoon, at i-search niyo na rin ang English translation ng lyrics para ma-appreciate ang mensahe ng mga kantang ito.
they made me realize that im the one i should love in this world, that i dont need to change myself for others, that its okay to have imperfections. their songs have meaning which meant a lot to me. and now im happy. they’ve shown me i have reasons that i should love myself.💜 pic.twitter.com/Ah9iRXM0b3

10. When they are never afraid to show their quirky side
Marahil ay interesado rin kayo kung paano kumilos ang BTS kapag hindi sila nasa stage para mag-perform.
Kung isa kayo sa mga sinaunang fans ng BTS, alam niyo naman na siguro kung papaano sila kumilos sa dorm, practice room, at off-stage, na malayo sa kanilang sexy at fierce aura on-stage.
Para mawala ang stress ng karamihan sa mga ARMYs, sila’y nanonood ng mga variety shows ng BTS na talaga namang pampa-good vibes!

11. When they break records on Spotify and Youtube
BTS ang currently na may hawak ng “Most viewed video on Youtube in the first 24 hours” with their music video “Idol” with more than 45 million views at ngayon at mayroon ng 192 million views sa loob lang ng isang buwan!
We think #IDOL should win for #PCAs #TheMusicVideo because it almost has 200M views, it holds the record for most views in the 1st 24 hrs, it spawned a viral challenge, and it’s just a really beautiful MV!https://t.co/7cYLr6D4t8

12. When they know they won’t be the best boy band in the world without their best fans
At siyempre, never nakalimot ang BTS pasalamatan at i-appreciate lahat ng efforts ng kanilang one and only ARMY. “We truly have the best fans in the world.” -Kim Namjoon, 2018
