“Our genre is just BTS” RM reveals how he feels about defining BTS and K-Pop – Knetizen

“Our genre is BTS”

“I know that many fans don’t see BTS as part of K-pop,” Rolling Stone interviewer Brian Hiatt told RM. “And you, yourselves, have said that ‘BTS is the genre.’ How do you see it?”

RM said, “That’s a very important debate. Because what they call K-pop, that genre is expanding very fast. For example, some so-called K-pop groups have only foreigners, from Europe, India, China, like, everywhere. There are no Korean members, but they do the K-pop thing, they’re switching the parts, and so on. BTS is expanding very fast as well. And K-pop is now so wide. Somebody could say that K-pop is for Koreans who sing a Korean song. That could be K-pop. But what about “Dynamite”? We sing the song in English. But we’re all Koreans, so somebody may say it’s a K-pop song. Or they may say it’s just a pop song, because it’s in English. But we don’t actually really care about whether people see us as inside or outside K-pop. The important fact is that we’re all Koreans, and we’re singing a pop song. So that’s the reason why we said that our genre is just BTS. That debate is very important for the music industry, but it doesn’t mean very much for us members.” cr
