On December 10, 2020, TIME announced the news about BTS’s incredible musical achievements in 2020.
BTS has released two chart-topping albums, MAP OF THE SOUL: 7 and BE, and brought comfort to millions in the midst of global uncertainty.
Although 2020 has brought setbacks, worldwide shutdowns, COVID-19 forces us to stay together from afar, it’s easy to feel disconnected and alone, but the pandemic has made BTS’s bond with ARMY even stronger.
TIME touched on this special connection, as well as BTS’s humble beginnings as mold-breaking rookies, their activism and philanthropy, their dedication to being good role models, and their GRAMMY nomination.
All this and more has earned BTS the title of “2020 Entertainer Of The Year”. TIME‘s “Person of the Year” will be announced during the first TIME Person of the Year broadcast special on December 10 at 10 PM ET on NBC.
