KUALA LUMPUR: International K-Pop juggernaut BTS has had a tremendous musical journey so far having completed a mega-successful world tour, garnering a rabid global fanbase, selling tonnes of albums and winning countless awards.
But one award has so far eluded the South Korean music outfit made up of RM, Jimin, J-Hope, Jungkook, V, Jin and Suga.
According to Soompi, the recently announced nominations list for the 2020 Grammy Awards had glaringly left BTS out.
Many fans, dubbed Army, were naturally up in arms and expressed their disappointment online at the distinct nomination snub.
But most took a more positive approach to show their support and solidarity for the globally-loved K-Pop sensation.
Apparently, just hours after the nominations were announced, the proactive fans sent BTS’ entire Korean discography back on to the Top 1000 of the iTunes Top Albums chart in the US.
The fandom also shared why they love BTS and celebrated the group’s achievements via the Twitter hashtag, #ThisIsBTS, which started trending worldwide at the No. 3 spot.
One fan wrote: “Record breakers. Game changers. Innovators. Creators. Artistes. They’re a musical force to be reckoned with. They’ve only just begun, and I can’t wait to see the change they bring and all they achieve.”
Another said: “Who sold out stadiums? 74.8 million views in just 24 hours. Certified RIAA Platinum. Only group who taught us to love ourselves. The only K-Pop group who came from a small company and becomes the biggest boy band in the world.”
Yet another let on that, “You guys won in life. You are always in the first place for us, you are always winners for us. Whatever happens, we will continue to love and support you even more. You guys are the best for us in everything.”
As of now, no announcement on the K-Pop group’s attendance to the 2020 Grammy Awards, which is set to take place on Jan 26, has been made.
Meanwhile, Soompi also reported that the tuxedos that the seven members wore to this year’s Grammys have been put on display at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles since last Wednesday.
The display, located on the museum’s third floor, is part of its On The Red Carpet presented by Delta Exhibit event.
Other exhibits on display include outfits worn by Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Miranda Lambert, Michelle Obama, Kanye West and Amy Winehouse.
Last February, BTS presented the award for Best R&B Album at the 2019 Grammy Awards, which made the group the first Korean artiste to ever take to the stage at the annual event.
