In 2015, BTS finally wiped off their eyeliner and started making their music more pop and electronic. According to her School trilogy follows the The Youth Trilogy. It strikes a new note, and that is exactly how BTS broke through in Korea and around the world.

The sentimental, heavy synthesizer sounds of "I need U" and the squeaky horns in "Dope" are new and show that BTS have come of age. The next era has begun. With "Wings" they take their EDM-inspired HipHop to a new level, but it wasn't until 2018, with "Love Yourself" that EDM really got going. "So what" and "I'm Fine" are fucking fat Ibiza party tracks, while "DNA" and "IDOL" are so energetic that you get whiplash while dancing. These are the tracks you probably have in mind when you think of K-pop.

The guys from BTS are divided into two camps: the singers Jin, Jimin, V and Jungkook and the rappers RM, SUGA and j-hope. BTS doesn't just do HipHop, the singing has been important from the start: The singers keep throwing out emotional fireworks like "Butterfly" and "Spring Day".

Or more up-to-date: At MOS: 7 you can hear the singing constantly changing like a chameleon. In the melancholy "Louder than Bombs", co-written by Troye Sivan among others, the voices are pitched super high, they collide with the hard, deep rap part. The highlight of the album is then the epic "We Are Bulletproof: the Eternal", a tribute to the track "We Are Bulletproof Pt.2" from their debut album.

When BTS started out as a hip-hop K-pop band, they had to take a lot. In 2013, RM and SUGA were accused by South Korean rapper B-Free of pretending to make a fool of hip-hop. But RM, SUGA and j-hope have shown over the years at BTS and in their solo mixtapes that they are part of a new generation of K-Pop and also serious rappers. Her oeuvre also includes Disstracks, which are directed against their critics and show their technical ability. "Whether you call me wack or fake. Whatever it is. I'm a new standard to K-pop" is a line above a trap beat in "Cypher Pt.3: Killer".

Also included: flawless pop

2017 have BTS Love Yourself 承 Her released - a dreamy album about a young man in love. Matching it: pastel-colored style and hair like smarties. For BTS, it's the time of pop, often seen through a shimmering R&B lens. Disco feeling comes up on "Trivia 轉: Seesaw", a surprisingly poppy track from SUGA, while "Pied Piper" is a loving swipe at all those fans who stop their real life to hear BTS.

The majority of BTS pop songs are dedicated to fans. On Love Yourself 轉 Tear, you can find wonderful songs with the tropical "Paradise" and the "Magic Shop" sung with a fistulous voice while on Map of the Soul: Persona with the soulful track "Boy With Luv" the much harder "Boy In Luv" from the School trilogy is quoted. "HOME" is similarly characteristic, a rousing R&B track about fans who have become a huge support for the group.

And then there is the latest single "Dynamite", a summer anthem in English with which BTS finally made it into the long-awaited Billboard Hot 100. Ironically, this is probably the least typical song from BTS. So it is bittersweet that BTS of all people made their breakthrough in the mainstream with him and are on the radio. In a strange way, the song looks like a Trojan horse. If listeners want to dig a little deeper, a whole panopticon of hits opens up to them.
