BTS Is Breaking The Internet With Their New Release ‘Map of the Soul: 7’

When you hear a lot about a certain group, you eventually want to check out what all the hype is about. BTS is exploding with an ARMY of millions of fans who buy every ticket for every show. As soon as they put out new music, it blows up all over the internet and has fans talking for days.

So, I had to see what has the ARMY buzzing today about them. Also known as Bangtan, they are a Korean boy band who got started about ten years ago. But they only crossed international markets recently making a huge splash in America. I had heard about the band and watched them get awards at various award shows like the VMAs. But, I had never checked them out.

When I decided to do that, I chose “We Are Bulletproof: The Eternal” as my first taste. I was immediately taken back to a time when I was in the Marine Corps stationed in Japan. I was in Korea often back in those days and I remember the sounds of the music on the streets. When I got a day off to hit the city, those sounds were all over the place. I remember thinking about how much our cultures were different.

So, the first thing I noticed was that sound in “We Are Bulletproof: The Eternal.” But, the song has a contemporary feel that resonates with young fans and brings it current. I heard the mastery in the musical arrangement. This is the voice today. This is the voice of tomorrow. These guys have a very rich soul.

Just so you know how good they actually are, take another look at them. I found this song surprisingly good too. I think I just became a BTS fan and now I know what all the hype is about.
