(gun cocks, fires)
(song fades)
- Cool. Yeah, I like them now.
- That actually kinda got me going.
Not today. Do you hear me? (assertively) Not today.
I loved it. It was so good.
- It started off real strong. I really like their style.
- The music is so intense.
- I liked it. I would actually listen to some of those songs.
I'm gonna go look up K-pop songs now
and add them to my playlist.
- (FBE) So we gave BTS their own episode,
as they have gotten so huge.
And years back, we covered them on YouTubers React.
And a lot of people let us know part of how they found them
was this show, and they want more.
- Yes, I love the ARMY. They always support me.
So I'm like, "Yes, ARMY!" (chuckles)
- (FBE) They even recently beat out stars like Justin Bieber
and Selena Gomez to win a Billboard Music Award
for top social artist of the year here in America.
- Wow. - Impressive.
- You always feel like the K-pop community
is quite on the internet, and then they won that Billboard Award.
And it was quite funny seeing people that weren't aware
being like, "Who?" - "What?
What is this?" - "What?" And then you go on Twitter.
It's like, "Oh wow, they're like 10 times more popular
than everyone else, but I've never heard of them."
- (FBE) So now that you've heard more
and seen some of their videos,
how would you say that they stand out?
- Well, they definitely have that boy band thing going on
that has been a proven recipe for success.
- They're incredibly good at dancing. They're all very in sync.
- They put a lot of passion into their performance.
- A lot of people are afraid to listen to music
that they don't understand, but it's just about the vibe
and the passion that they put into it.
- Despite being how successful they are,
they're still very thoughtful about
their assistants that work with them
or people that aren't classes, like a high social status
with an industry that work for them.
They still treat them very, very well.
And I think that's very refreshing to see in an artist.
- They're clearly very, very talented.
And they do have that very well-produced music.
But it definitely has a message with it.
- They're the most well-rounded, talented group, I think.
'Cause they got the looks. They got the style.
- Yeah. - They got the good music.
- They've got amazing choreography. - Mm-hmm.
- And at the right time, you know.
And that social media, it keeps getting bigger and bigger
and more possible to grow a fan base.
And it's just like, "Smack, BTS, we're here. Boom."
- And it all combines together and just slaps you in the face.
- (FBE) So BTS incorporates elements of different genres
across their music, like hip hop and rock and more.
They've also tackled more serious social issues in their music,
like school bullying, the pursuit of happiness,
and challenging societal norms. - Really?
That sounds great.
- It's really impressive that they do all of that, you know?
Not very many groups are really involved in the social aspect.
- (FBE) The group also co-writes and produces
a lot of the songs they release.
- Wow. - That's cool.
- (FBE) So what do you think about
the multilayered aspect of this group?
- I think they're talented.
It's hard to do those things.
- It's super cool if they get to kind of like
stretch their creative muscles.
It's better when they feel more involved in their music.
- That's good to know they at least write their own music,
'cause it does seem like the kind of band or music
that could just be jumped out of one of these factories.
- The industry's known for, you know, highly produced,
manufactured, doing what's popular.
So it's really nice to hear that there's a K-pop group
taking a stand for all these social issues.
- These guys are running their own world,
creating their own music, writing their own lyrics,
and really getting a message that they feel is important out.
And I think that's why people choose YouTube
over mainstream television and over-produced television shows.
And I love they're tackling tough topics. Nobody does that.
- (FBE) Many Korean K-pop artists stem from huge labels,
but BTS was formed by Big Hit Entertainment, a smaller label,
and still have this huge success.
In entertainment, can you talk about the difference
working between big and smaller companies? - Yeah.
I mean, I think obviously you're at a disadvantage,
like when you don't have a huge platform
or a huge company to back you.
But I think also that makes it more of an accomplishment.
I came from a bigger company,
where I used to work there for a couple of years.
And it's definitely something that's scary when you first leave.
But I think that going outside of that and testing your mettle
and see what you're made of is always worth it.
- I've also signed with a company as well in China
in the entertainment industry.
And I chose the company because they were also small.
For me, it's not about the prestige.
It's about working with people
that have the same vision and attitude as you.
And I think that's why BTS has done so well,
because they've chosen, you know, to grow with a small company
that maybe shares the same values and vision as them.
- Working with smaller companies, you always get, I feel like,
a little bit more attention.
So they can focus on you a little bit more.
Bigger labels, you know, they usually get pushed aside.
I'd work with a-- we work with small people.
- Well, also, the creative control is great,
because you don't have to answer to anyone.
- In bigger companies, sometimes you might get overshadowed
by those people that are already huge.
The smaller companies, they focus on you.
And then you can grow a lot easier.
- That's a positive thing.
But a negative thing stemming from a very small company is
it takes a long time to pave that pathway.
- But it shows how much determination and hard work
they put in to become successful,
coming from the littler company. - Yeah.
- (FBE) Finally, the K-pop industry is booming,
some would say due in part to YouTube's reach.
Similarly, recent articles have come out
that young people aspire to be YouTubers,
as one of the top dreams young people have today.
- Oh wow.
- (FBE) What do you think about how YouTube has impacted
not just your own life or BTS's life
but the major impact the site has had
to also make so many new dreams come true
that may have never even been considered because of it?
- In terms of BTS, I think it's amazing
that a band from the other side of the world
can reach a global audience like that.
- If you want to be a YouTuber because you want to be creative
and that's your passion, whether it's making videos
or filming makeup tutorials and that's what you want to share,
that's great. But it doesn't mean that you have to
change your otherwise direction of life, like not go to school
because you're determined to become a YouTuber.
I think you can do both.
- When I was growing up, we didn't have YouTube.
It was just traditional media.
With YouTube, it's like the public gets to decide
who gets that place in the top.
- I think it's great that kids are aspiring
to do something creative.
To have YouTube be a viable option as a career is very exciting.
- The great thing about YouTube
is people are searching for what they want to watch
rather than looking at a TV schedule.
- That was me, and I saw--
I was inspired by a lot of YouTubers.
And I was like, "I can do this."
And I always like to make people laugh.
And now I'm here. So that's ridiculous.
- For so many years, we've lived in this international,
gated, walled system where certain music was only allowed
to be played in the United Stations
and licensed in the United States.
And music from other countries can't make it here,
and our television shows can't make it there.
But now with this new global market,
you can consume media from all over the world.
Who wouldn't want to create content that now
not just the people in your state or city or country can consume
but the whole world? That's awesome.
