그룹 방탄소년단이 빌보드 차트와 빌보드 뮤직어워드의 새 역사를 쓰기까지의 놀라운 여정을 생생하게 전한다. 세계 대중음악사에 새로운 역사를 쓰고 있는 방탄소년단은 2020년 8월 발표한 디지털 싱글 'Dynamite'와 11월 발표한 앨범 'BE'의 타이틀곡 'Life Goes On'으로 한국 가수 최초로 미국 빌보드 '핫 100' 1위에 올랐다. 뿐만 아니라 'Dynamite'로 한국 가수 최초 제63회 그래미 어워드 '베스트 팝 듀오/그룹 퍼포먼스(BEST POP DOU/GROUP PERFORMANCE)' 부문에 노미테이트된 데 이어 퍼포머로도 이름을 올렸다. SBS '전설의 무대-아카이브K'의 마지막 상자를 장식하게 된 방탄소년단은 해외 진출의 순간부터 지금에 이르기까지 어디서도 이야기 하지 않았던 솔직한 기록을 했다. 특히 2017년 처음 '빌보드 뮤직 어워드( BBMAs)'에 올랐던 당시를 떠올리며 '너무 무서웠다'고 고백해 눈길을 끌었다. 방탄소년단은 2015년 발매한 앨범 '화양연화 pt.2'로 처음 '빌보드 200'에 이름을 올린 후, '2017 빌보드 뮤직 어워드'에 참석하기 전까지 '화양연화 Young Forever', 'WINGS', 'YOU NEVER WALK ALONE' 등 총 4개 앨범을 연속 진입시키며 K-Pop 사상 첫 기록을 냈다. 그리고 2017 빌보드 뮤직 어워드'에 참석, 6년 연속 '톱 소셜 아티스트'를 차지했던 저스틴 비버의 수상을 저지하며 K-Pop 그룹 최초로 빌보드 뮤직 어워드에서 수상을 하는 쾌거를 이뤄냈다. RM은 당시를 회상하며 '빌보드를 간다는 자체가 엄청 무서웠다. 그런데 마젠타 카펫을 밟는 순간 아미(방탄소년단의 팬덤)들의 함성이 들렸다'고 회상했다. '사람들은 우리가 누군지 아무도 몰랐다. 근데 아미들 덕분에 '현지에 팬들이 있는 유명한 해외 그룹인가보다'라고 생각했을 것'이라며 새삼 감사했고, 지켜보던 정국도 '아미들 덕분에 기가 살았다'고 고백해 팬들에 대한 고마움을 내비쳤다. 또한 수상마다 팬덤명 '아미'에게 축하한다는 소감을 남겨 화제를 모았던 것에 대해 지민은 '항상 아미와 같이한다는 생각을 했다'며 팬들에 대한 사랑을 여실히 드러냈다. '아카이브K'에서는 방탄소년단과 더불어 빅히트의 수장인 방시혁, 박진영, 싸이, 슈퍼주니어, 트와이스, 블랙핑크 등 현재 케이팝 역사의 주요 인물들이 총출동해 주요 변곡점이 된 사건들을 기록한다. 세계로 뻗어가는 K-Pop의 현주소를 생생하게 기록하게 될 SBS '전설의 무대-아카이브K' 최종회는 오늘(14일) 밤 11시 5분에 방송된다.

[SBS Star] Sofia Carson Under Fire for Abruptly Joining BTS' Red Carpet Photo-op
American singer/actress Sofia Carson is getting backlash for her 'poor manner' towards K-pop boy group BTS. On May 1 (local time), BTS and Sofia Carson were both on the red carpet for the '2019 Billboard Music Awards' ( BBMAs). While the seven members of BTS were on the red carpet posing for the cameras, Sofia Carson came to them, stood beside J-HOPE, and posed for the cameras while touching his shoulder. SUGA and V are seen confused as to why she was joining their photo-op. Since Sofia Carson had no affiliations with the group before the photo, many are claiming that it was too 'out of the blue' and 'rude' for her to join them. Some fans are saying that she is not being rude, as she clearly asked BTS, 'I'm gonna join in with you guys if that's cool?', and the members welcomed her to join. can y'all listen to the video she literally said 'im gonna join in with you guys if that's cool?' and they all said hi pic.twitter.com/kMdvEXFwTO — ? ?????? ?

One fan commented, 'What miss Sofia Carson needs to understand is that if she was taking a photo with a random man she didn't know came up to her and put his hands on her, she wouldn't be comfortable or feel safe. And that is exactly what she did to Hoseok (J-HOPE's real name). A self-reflective apology would be nice.' Meanwhile, BTS won Top Social Artist and Top Duo/Group awards at this year's ' BBMAs'.
