In this respect, BTS and Big Hit, without even realising it themselves, were in the process of tearing down boundaries. For me, I got the impression that, if I looked back on my life later on, I wouldn’t be able to explain it without this part I did together with these people. Still, it would have been nice to explore some humanizing aspects more in detail — for example, when RM had to confront that his great hip hop influences had a culture of misogyny and how he in response worked to improve his perspective — but the book merely mentions and moves on from these in-depth moments of development, as though it’s afraid to acknowledge the members as having any flaws at all.

I am so thankful to the members for getting our acts together, and I want to say how thankful I am to ARMY for always loving us. They also go in depth with explaining how overwhelming their international success became and why they almost decided to disband at the beginning of 2018. So my main complaint with the book is that it did not dive deep enough into the more intricate concepts behind songs and performances, like the connections to Hermann Hesse, Carl Jung, Greek mythology and Korean folklore - I would have been interested in that.Complete with a timeline of all major milestones, BEYOND THE STORY is a remarkable archive -truly everything about BTS in one volume. BTS shares personal, behind-the-scenes stories of their journey so far through interviews and more than three years of in-depth coverage by Myeongseok Kang, who has written about K-pop and other Korean pop culture in various media. I wonder when these men even had the time to work on this though, cause we've been drowning in new music and other content for a while like.

Definitely check this one out if you love BTS or want to understand more about what they stand for and what they’ve been through. From being bullied, receiving death threats, plagiarism accusation, chart manipulation accusations and many more, BTS persevered nonetheless even when giving up would have been easier. In individual interviews that have been conducted without a camera or makeup, they illuminate their musical journey from multiple angles and discuss its significance.If history books are the answer sheet to the present, then our sunbaes (seniors) who did music before us are our answer sheet, right? Complete with a timeline of all major milestones, Beyond the Story is a remarkable archive -truly everything about BTS in one volume. I really appreciated how the focus was put on music and how the author retraced every step they took in the industry by constantly mentioning albums, songs, concepts and eras, while also including their personal struggles, aspirations and dreams in the process. Rather, it's a neatly produced puzzle piece in the overall mythology of BTS, the story about seven young men who signed up with a small entertainment company and then became the biggest band in the world. Because we’d said only the things we thought we could never achieve, and then we achieved all of them.

Biography: BTS, an acronym of "Bangtan Sonyeondan" or "Beyond the Scene," is a boy band from South Korea that debuted on June 13, 2013. While reading this book, I couldn't stop the tears from rolling down my face because I kept being reminded of all the emotions I've felt while stanning BTS.

I had to admit there were moments that made me laugh a little (see: Joon nearly having a mental breakdown at the 2017 America interviews), and I loved several segments on Yoongi and Namjoon (and even Chim) that accurately showcased the kind of introspective people they are. It's written in an approachable way for fans and newbies alike, and the 300+ QR-Codes added make it easy to check out content the text refers to, from songs to MVs to variety shows to interviews. i'm a person who tends to avoid lengthy books because of the obvious but this makes me fucking greedy.
