10/23 (Tue) How BTS Is Taking Over the World (Host: Ellen)

Sorry for the delay.

Since my favorite K-pop group - BTS has become so huge lately, I would like to introduce them to people who still have not heard of them yet.

Here’s why you may have heard of them recently:


Here are two articles of what's going on with BTS:
How BTS Is Taking Over the World
http://time.com/collection-post/5414052 ... n-leaders/
BTS: Who are they and how did they become so successful?
https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/45721656

If you are interested in knowing more about BTS & K-pop, here’s a 27 mins long of programme made by BBC Radio 1:
K-Pop: Korea's Secret Weapon?


Some of the BTS’s Hit songs:

BTS (방탄소년단) 'DNA' Official MV


BTS (방탄소년단) 'MIC Drop (Steve Aoki Remix)' Official MV


BTS (방탄소년단) '봄날 (Spring Day)' Official MV


Session 1

Q1: What genre of music do you listen to? Who is your favorite musician/singer of all time, and why?

Q2: Are you a fan of K-pop music? If yes, why do you like it?
If not, why do you think K-pop can be such a phenomenon in the world?

Q3: In the second article, it is mentioned that the internet - and in particular social media - has played an enormous part in the success of the group. There are tons and tons of K-pop groups out there, why do you think BTS can be the most popular group among all the K-pop groups?

Session 2

Q4: Do you think C-pop (Chinese popular music) have any chance of achieving such success in the west? If yes, what will be the key to success? If not, why?

Q5: Maybe it’s a bit too early to think about it, but what do you think the next global music wave is going to be? (e.g. Indian pop, C-pop…etc)

Q6: Before the K-pop wave, it was J-pop (music & Japanese TV dramas) all over Asia. Why is J-Pop not as popular as K-Pop nowadays?

My daughter once spent 20 minutes explaining to me why BTS is big and why it is her favorite boy band, which was quite unusual because a teen like her usually didn't give a damn about parents. I learnt how influential they are since then.
