BTS to film Billboard and capture Grammy

Will he even win the Grammy Awards? Fans of BTS (BTS) around the world as well as Koreans are looking forward to the Grammy Awards on January 31. Earlier, the U.S. Recording Academy, which organizes the Grammy Awards, nominated BTS' English song "Diamite" on November 25 (local time) as a candidate for the 63rd Grammy Awards' "Best Pop Duo and Group Performance." It is the first time that Korean pop music has been nominated for the Grammy Awards, which boasts the highest authority in the U.S. This proved that BTS members were the hottest 'Korean nationality' celebrities of the year.

BTS became the first Korean singer to top the Billboard main single chart 'Hot 100' with "Diamite" last summer. The Korean song "Life Goon" released later topped the Hot 100, raising expectations for winning the Grammy Award.

"BTS's global popularity has finally been fully recognized with Billboard's top single chart," said Ha Jae-keun, a culture critic. "The number one on the album chart is also possible with fandom, but the number one single should be loved more universally," he said. "In addition to the enthusiastic fandom, we have put together the last puzzle piece." Now, the only thing left for BTS is the Grammy, Ha added.

This is the third time that BTS and Sisa Journal's Person of the Year have been linked to each other since 2017 and 2019. In September, the survey in the broadcasting and entertainment sector of "Who is Moving Korea" to mark the 30th anniversary of the founding of the Sisa Journal also ranked first with a 29.5% rating. BTS has reached a higher position year by year due to its steady growth and continued growth. It is also drawing more attention as it overcame obstacles of type and type.

Last year's hit 'Map of the Soul: Persona' was finally excluded from the Grammy list. Despite the widespread disappointment and criticism of Grammy, BTS silently advanced. As a result, he has produced a number of megahits this year, including "Diamite" and "Life Goon," moving members of the Recording Academy, or the mainstream music scene in the United States. Billboard, a U.S. media outlet specializing in pop music, praised, "The Korean group has made surprising progress on the global pop stage, and Grammy has also recognized major cultural changes," adding, "BTS has finally broken through (the wall of the Grammy)."
