I was watching the ABC weekly wrap-up news program ‘News to Me‘ when i saw something familiar. It was BTS! Yes, I got a little too excited.
The hosts were commenting on BTS’ latest comeback success with their newest release ‘Blood, Sweat and Tears‘.
Here they are featured in the episode on ABC iview at the 0:15 and 8:00 mark. (watch it quick before the episode gets taken down on 22/11/2016)
The host commented, “Now if you thought 4 million views for a music video debut is big then have a listen to this. Kpop group Bangtan Boys, better known as BTS, have made a comeback and released a brand new album called Wings.”
“It shot straight to number one in over 26 countries but it’s their music video for Pi, Dam, Numul, or in English, ‘Blood Sweat and Tears’, that’s created a stir. It reached 10 million views in under 46 hours.
I think the host might secretly be an ARMY. She’s even wearing a T-shirt similar to one that V wore in the 2015 BTS Kota Kinabulu summer photoshoot, hehe.
Anyway, it’s always great to catch glimpses of K-pop every now and then on Aussie national TV.
