BTS, who recently released their new single “Dynamite,” has been on a roll breaking records on the charts while giving fans lots of fun content through their official “Dynamite” music video and B-side video.
BTS did not disappoint as they came back with yet another new concept of disco pop. For those that might not know much about BTS or understand why they continue to gain a huge following even after seven years in the industry, take a look at their past concepts and discography and you will know why.
For instance, if you take a look at their song “Go Go,” they take the trends of that year (2017) such as YOLO and 탕진잼 (tangjinjam) and incorporate it in a fun way to create a witty and trendy trap hip-hop track.
They can take this fun and cute style song and take it a totally different direction just by changing the stage and styling.
Now going in chronological order, you can see just from their music video thumbnails the different sounds, concepts and styles they have done throughout the years.
“War of Hormone” (2014)
