This year, the seven members of BTS (Bangtan Sonyeondan or Beyond the Scene) celebrate their 8th anniversary. Having debuted on 13 June 2013, the band entered the K-pop scene as underdogs; they were from a small label with a modest crew and barely enough budget to market themselves.
It may come as a surprise to new fans who know them today as global chart-topping superstars who have broken one glass ceiling after the other. But back then, all RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook had to bank on were talent, hard work, and their mutual love for music.
Although they are best known for hits like Grammy-nominated bop Dynamite and the ultra-smooth pop track Butter, over the past eight years, BTS career has treated fans to diverse music, mind-blowing performances and of course, incredible songwriting. Besides the records they release as a group, each member has penned tracks that showcase their own personal tastes and musical prowess.
