BTS Not Keen On Shifting To US Market, Says Korean Language Is How They Communicate Best

While the door has blasted wide open for BTS to enter the US market with their Billboard Music Awards win for Top Social Artist, it seems that the Bangtan Boys are not keen on shifting their focus from their fans in Korea. When asked what their plans are for entering the US market, BTS leader Rap Monster was quite candid in his answer.

"Since we're Korean singers, we look the best when singing in Korean. If you think about, it's unbelievable that we won a Billboard award," Rap Monster said about BTS' recent accomplishment, SBS Pop Asia reported. He added that the Korean language is the best way they know to communicate their message and their music. "Going back to our debut in 2013, winning a Billboard award was something we never could've even dreamed of."
