BTS Named Among "Next Generation Leaders" By TIME Magazine!

They know what they want, they know what they are. You can't stop BTS from taking over the world as the "next generation leaders"!
TIME Magazine featured the global K-Pop group on their latest cover and included them in their annual list of young people making an impact on the world. “It’s a real honor,” J-Hope told the publication via a translator. “We’re proud that everything we do is giving off light.”
After likening the seven-member South Korean boyband to iconic groups such as The Beatles, *NSYNC, and One Direction, TIME also commended BTS for "breaking new ground" by making it big in America, using social media to promote their music and connect with fans, and conveying important life messages into their works. "We started to tell the stories that people wanted to hear and were ready to hear, stories that other people could not or would not tell,” Suga explained. “We said what other people were feeling—like pain, anxieties and worries... that was our goal, to create this empathy that people can relate to."
BTS recently won Favorite Social Artist at the American Music Awards 2018—just among their many accolades. But there seems to be more on Suga's list: "...maybe we could perform at the Super Bowl someday.”
The boys are also reportedly heading to the big screen on November 15 with Burn The Stage: The Movie!, which is assumed to be a film adaptation of the group's eight-episode tour documentary on YouTube Red, featuring behind-the-scenes footage of their Wings Tour. Waiting for the official announcement, guys!
