Will BTS be the first K-pop act to successfully crossover into the states?

Their newest single,DNA, is set to debut at #85 on the Hot 100, making them the 2nd K-pop act EVER to achieve this. So will it Rise or will it fall? Not to mention that they made K-pop history, with them being the first act to break into the Top 10 on the Billboard 200.

They need to get consistent chart rankings from now on if we're talking about a "successful" crossover.

If only CL was able to do something similar with "Lifted" even though it was a cover  :rip:

Maybe, but I soemwhat hope not. But most BTS fans I see are absolute *ssholes. I’ve seen many attack Lady Gaga and little monsters for no reason other than because they’re “western”

I've been hoping for more K/J-Pop to cross over into America. With their Grammy win, I think it may happen.

I love BTS and they definitely deserve the recognition cause they're all truly talented:firega:. But the Kpop community honestly believed 2NE1 was to be the one :selena::selena:

Some of them truly are as*holes but the boys are super nice so i hope they do fine. The interactions i had with other ARMYs was actually very good, there are TONS of LGBTQ+ stans and they're super cool about it and really like Gaga :hor:

I hope so... I just recently discovered them myself (wasn't a K-Pop fan whatsoever), and I honestly really really like them. A lot. (Not just because they're all cute. :giggle:)

Their music may sound "Americanized"/"westernized", but honestly, that's what they need to crossover into the States, am I right? It's good music though. Very trendy and contemporary with heavy hip-hop/trap influences. A lot of their songs on their new album would be HITS here if they were in English and sung by someone like Justin Bieber or a One Direction member or maybe even Shawn Mendes. I was actually really surprised at how interesting and unique their image is.

Shook. 

I always thought Girls Generation, Wonder Girls, or 2NE1 (especially CL) would be the first K-Pop act to see mainstream recognition here.

Hmm, maybe with their Chainsmokers work. But I don't think DNA will be their breakthrough 

Currently banned until January 17, 2018. Til then BBs *cries*

I like BTS but I think BLACKPINK will be the first group to crossover.
