BTS have looked back at the moment they knew they were famous worldwide.

The south Korean group released the album Wings in 2016, along with the track Blood Sweat & Tears, and reached number 26 on the Billboard 200 chart.

It earned them a major award in their home country: a Bonsang at the Golden Disk Awards

Jungkook recalled fans around the world getting into their music around that time too, which led to them picking up a Billboard Music Award the following year for top social artist.

He told Pitchfork: ‘Even internationally, it was around then that more and more people began to respond to our albums, and I’m really grateful.’

Jimin added: ‘This song [Blood Sweat & Tears] was also the song they played when we got our first award at the BBMAs. So this song is one that’s really special for us.’

Describing the theme of Wings, Jin explained it is about experiencing ‘strong, irresistable temptation’ for the first time.

‘The album is about internal conflicts in the face of such things,’ he added.

When they released Wings back then, little did they know they would go on to top the Billboard 100 chart, a long held dream of theirs.

It happened for the IDOL singers earlier this year with the release of English-language single Dynamite.

In a press conference attended by, Suga confessed he was ‘having a hard time accepting’ the achievement.

The rapper went on: ‘We talked a lot, we often said [we want] no 1 on the hot 100, this is something we’d like to have. It’s not like we worked hard just to reach this goal, but it feels like a dream we have reached this goal.’

Now the members are looking ahead to their comeback BE (Deluxe Edition) in November, said to be their most ‘BTS-ish’ album yet.
