2018 has been a really successful year for the group. But at the same time, it has also been a significant year. With their attendance at the UN summit (UNICEF Youth2030 conference) and their social endeavours, BTS have redefined the meaning of “social artist” and moved beyond the numbers.
Congratulations BTS & ARMY! How are you feeling? Share your thoughts via tweet @CelebMix.
