Prime minister Lee Nak Yeon of Korea has expressed his admiration and pride for BTS!
On September 4 to Edaily, the prime minister said, “I marvel everyday at the fact that youth all over the world are so passionate about BTS’s music regardless of language or culture. I don’t fully understand the world of BTS’s music, but I do know that I love BTS very much. I hope that BTS continues to grow as musicians that are loved by youth everywhere.”
On September 3, the prime minister showed his pride in BTS, tweeting about the group’s second time topping the Billboard 200 chart this year, first with “Love Yourself: Tear” in May and recently with “Love Yourself: Answer.” He said, “BTS’s second time at No. 1 on Billboard this year. The only artists to top Billboard twice in one year are superstars like The Beatles, Elvis Presley, and Frank Sinatra. So proud of BTS.”
방탄소년단, 올해 두번째 빌보드 1위. 1년에 두번 빌보드 1위에 오른 가수는 비틀즈, 엘비스 프레슬리, 프랭크 시나트라 등 수퍼스타뿐이라는 것. BTS, 장하십니다.
