BTS on hiatus

BTS are one of the world's biggest pop groups. However, they are currently on a break as members fulfil their mandatory military service in South Korea with member Jin the first to enlist.

The band made their debut in June 2013 and became a worldwide sensation with their songs and social campaigns aimed at empowering young people.

Across their career, they have won a host of awards, including nods at the American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, MTV Video Music Awards and have been nominated for Grammys.
