Bangtan Boys, also known as BTS, wowed their fans and co-artists after winning the Top Social Artist award at the recent Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, making them the first K-pop act to earn recognition from the annual music event. In fact, several American singers have been reaching out to the seven-member boy group to express their appreciation of their music.

BTS and The Chainsmokers

Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall of popular duo The Chainsmokers, have been vocal about their admiration of K-pop music. In fact, the two were spotted having some fun time with the BTS members before the 2017 Billboard Music Awards started.

The "Roses" artists even shared a few snippets from their meeting with the K-pop group. In one of their social media updates, The Chainsmokers expressed their love for the boys and even promised to see them again this summer. The post was more than enough to raise speculation that the two could be planning for a collaboration.

The duo's credits include "Selfie," "Don't Let Me Down," "Something Just Like This" and "All We Know." Meanwhile, Halsey, who was featured in The Chainsmokers' "Closer," also met BTS during the 2017 Billboard Music Awards. The "New Americana" artist even shared the video of her meeting with the seven boys on her personal Instagram account.


After their attendance at this year's awarding event, the K-pop group graced several TV interviews to introduce their boy group to the American people.

In their interview with Billboard's Chelsea Briggs, the members of the popular boy band gamely answered a few questions from curious netizens.

Although six of the seven members only speak a little English, the boys still managed to entertain their fans with their energy and enthusiasm. Rap Monster, the leader of the group, was a big help in bridging the language gap between his members and Briggs.

After a little chit chat, the BTS members showcased their dance skills by teaching Briggs some of their moves. They even sang Luis Fonsi's "Despacito" and danced around the set.

'Third member from the left'

During the interview, Briggs also asked BTS about their co-member's popularity as the "third member from the left." The viral phrase was referring to Jin, who is considered the visual face of the boy group.

The 24-year-old idol caught the attention of non-Kpop fans for his handsome face. After hitting the magenta carpet at the BBMAs, Jin particularly stood out and became the known as the "third member from the left."
