The western world may not be too familiar with Korean music, but they’re about to be!

South Korean pop sensation BTS are about to embark on their first world tour and they’ve already had to book extra shows.

The 7-piece boy band, which has been around since 2013, were originally known as The Bangtan Boys (Bulletproof Boy Scouts) before switching to the acronym for “Beyond the Scene” in 2017.

The group is already taking the world by storm — having appeared on the cover of TIME Magazine and given a speech at the UN in their capacity as UNICEF Ambassadors.

Their upcoming Love Yourself: Speak Yourself tour will take them to the UK, France, and the US between May and June.

The support for BTS has been so immense that the group managed to sell out the whole of Wembley Stadium in 90 minutes — prompting organizers to add an extra date!

BTS will now play at the 90,000 capacity venue on the 1st and 2nd of June.
