K-pop boy group BTS' surefire success worldwide led to the group making its debut on Forbes' 'The World's Highest-Paid Celebrities' list.
On July 10, Forbes released its annual list of the top 100 celebrities in the world with the highest income.
BTS placed at #43, earning more than 57 million dollars worth of pretax income from June 1, 2018 to June 1, 2019.
