Meet Korea’s top mu­sic stars – they’re set to takeover your ear­waves

Cosmopolitan (UK) - - Contents -

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.
