Foreign Correspondents Ep.248
The secrets behind the massive success of BTS

After spending seven weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with “Butter,” BTS has knocked themselves off the top spot with the latest single “Permission to Dance.” The song is the band’s fifth No. 1 in ten months and two weeks. Meanwhile, President Moon Jae-in has appointed BTS as “Special Presidential Envoys for Future Generations and Culture.” The boy band is expected to represent Korea at the upcoming UN General Assembly in Sep. In this week’s edition of Foreign Correspondents, we sit down with our panel of journalists to discuss the secrets behind the global popularity of BTS and their growing influence on the world stage.
