It cannot be denied that K-pop or Korean pop is crossing over and making the jump stateside thanks to BTS and their historic recognition at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. The seven-member boy group has finally put an end to Justin Bieber's winning streak in the Top Social Artist category after six years.

Who is BTS?

BTS or Bangtan Boys is a K-pop boy group formed under Big Hit Entertainment. They officially made their debut with the release of "2 Cool 4 Skool" in 2013. The band is composed of Rap Monster, Jungkook, Jimin, Suga, Jin, J-Hope, and V. In the span of three years, BTS has become one of the most popular K-pop groups not only in Korea, but also across Asia and some parts of the United States.

The seven-member act is the first Korean band to win an award at the Billboard Music Awards, achieving another milestone for K-pop music. During the music event, the BTS members, despite the language barrier, interacted with some of the most popular American artists of this generation.

The K-pop idols were seen enjoying the company of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers. In fact, the duo even hinted at their potential collaboration with BTS. In a social media post, the pair behind "Roses" and "Don't Let Me Down" revealed that they will be meeting the Korean singers again in the summer.

Charlie Puth has always expressed his appreciation of K-pop music.

Specifically, the "One Call Away" singer previously said he likes BTS and their music. The K-pop group, in return, also said they like his music. The social media interaction came after Jungkook uploaded his own version of "We Don't Talk Anymore" popularized by Puth and Selena Gomez.

The cover song caught the attention of the American singer, and he even liked the Twitter post. Puth even replied, "Love this Jungcook," misspelling the name of the BTS member.

During his recent interview, the 25-year-old singer-songwriter admitted that he would love to meet the "fantastic" boy group one day. Puth specifically mentioned Jungkook and said he would like to apologize to him for "mispronouncing" his name in his previous post.

Aside from Puth, other American artists like Celine Dion, Halsey, and Camila Cabello have expressed their admiration of BTS. Earlier reports stated that the "My Heart Will Go On" singer invited them to her concert, while Halsey and Camila personally approached members during the 2017 Billboard Music Awards.
