Now, in 2020, the global superstars have received the Wall Steet Journal's Music Innovator Award. WSJ Magazine has been honoring talents from a variety of cultural backgrounds for over a decade.
At the 10th annual WSJ Magazine, BTS spoke about that it is an honour to be even compared to The Beatles but they've compared themselves to the legendary band. "Wow, the Beatles. To even be compared to the legendary group is a great honor." Jin said. "We've never ever been like the Beatles or even, as more than them. We’re just seven normal kids who love music and performance, who have a dream to give hope & love & positive energy & inspiration to the people in the world," RM further added.
Jimin further added the reason BTS resonates is because of the relationship with each other and the fans. "I think the members themselves make BTS Special. The relationship between the members. The relationship between us and our fans," Jimin said. "The fact that we can send such a crucial message to the listeners is a huge honor," Jungkook further mentioned about sending messages through their meaningful lyrics.
