TOP OF THE (K) POPS
Meet Korea’s top music stars – they’re set to takeover your earwaves
Who? Seven squeaky-clean teenagers from Seoul who change their hair colour more often than Lily Allen. Fans, known as the BTS Army, make Directioners seem like silent protesters. Big break: Their album, Love Yourself: Tear, which hit number one in the US in May. Best lyric: “You look fresh like a salad, so smooth.” Fashion vibe: High School Musical gone hipster. Sounds like: The Vengaboys (left) meet 1D. In a good way. Crazy fact: In September they made history, becoming the first K-pop group to make a speech at the UN in New York.
