BTS is TIME’s 2020 Entertainer of the Year. Between releasing multiple albums and breaking every type of record in 2020, the Korean pop band ascended to the zenith of pop stardom. In an era marked by so much anguish and cynicism, BTS has stayed true to their message of kindness, connection and self-acceptance. Tune in for a special performance from BTS tonight at 10/9c on NBC.
BTS, also known as the Bangtan Boys, is a seven-member South Korean boy band that began formation in 2010 and debuted in 2013 under Big Hit Entertainment. The septet—composed of RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook—co-writes and co-produces much of their own output.
