K-Pop is making it big internationally

Most people believe that K-POP gained international recognition only due to BTS, but that is hardly the case. Many K-pop bands and artists like NCT 127, Blackpink, Twice, Monsta X, and more had their music featured on the Billboards at some point. The K-pop industry has garnered a lot of international fans over the years.

Now, with BTS being the current biggest K-pop act, soundtracks from the band and band-members are fetching a lot of love and attention.
