BTS in 2021: all Guinness Records obtained by the K-pop band

Any individual who has social networks knows of the existence of BTS even if you have not heard their music, do not know a bit of South Korea, or know the name of any of its members.

And it is that the group has become the official face of K-pop, despite the success of other similar projects, because they are the first band that had a strong impact on the music market in North America where they have obtained very gringo awards such as the Video MTV Music Awards, the American Music Awards and Grammy nominations.

2021 was a golden year for the band, so much so that they reported a hiatus so that their members could have a few necessary weeks off.

Throughout these months they obtained hundreds of recognitions; achievements highlighted by the Guinness World Records organization on its website.
