BTS 방탄소년단 WINGS 2016
Do you remember that I talked about sharing with you my passion for Korea on the blog in my last article REBRANDING. Well here’s my first blogpost related to korean culture. It is about korean music to be more precise. Today we will talk about BTS Wings album of 2016.
Last October, the song « 피 땀 눈물 » – « Blood, Sweat & Tears » and its videoclip came out, announcing the BTS album Wings. And that is how started the fast-paced promotion of this new Bangtan Boys album, which became the most watched K-Pop clip on its day of release on Youtube. With a clip like 피 땀 눈물, which is simply a visual masterpiece and a beautiful story telling, I was not surprised at all to see it reach 100 million views in just under 4 and a half months.
You can see the clip below, if you’ve never seen it.
Although the BTS album Wings has been out for several months; I had never heard the entire thing before, except for Blood, Sweat & Tears. So I updated myself early February, and I must say that this album is simply beautiful. Big Hit Entertainment, Bangtan Boys and Pdogg (BTS main producer) have delivered an album with a perfect mix.

The tracks mentioned above are a perfect blend of Hip-Hop, Dance-Pop, R&B and K-Pop. You will find most of my favorite titles from this album starting from track 6. But if I had to make the list, there would be 8 of them: 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15.

After I have been listening to this album since February, I must say, it has the capacity to put you right in the « slayer » mode. Of course it has its amount of slow song and dreamy songs, but it can really boost you up.
