Seven good-looking boys - Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook - who can dance as well as they can sing, are tearing up the global music charts. Nothing new? Think again. BTS, who rose to fame in their native South Korea in 2013 and who sing almost entirely in Korean, are now a sensation in the US, the UK, Australia and the rest of the world.
K-pop is a growing phenomenon in the West. Over the last three years, it's steadily garnered a huge following among social-media-savvy teen girls. With their clean-cut good looks, fabulously choreographed and perfectly executed dance moves, and catchy blend of pop, soft hip hop and RnB, BTS are leading the advance.
Extensively researched, and written in an upbeat and accessible style, this book interweaves the success stories of each of the boys with how the band got together, while documenting their amazing rise to fame in Southeast Asia, and then the world. It includes 16 pages of full colour photographs of the band playing live, posing and having fun.
