On December 6, American media company Bloomberg published this year’s Bloomberg 50. The list “The People who Defined Global Business in 2018” is an annual tradition of the company, where they recognize noteworthy accomplishments in various areas, such as business, entertainment, finance, politics, and more.
Alongside many influencers, BTS became the first-ever Korean group to place their name on the list. Furthermore, they were the one out of two singers to be included in this year’s list. The other singer included in the list was Taylor Swift.
Regarding the reason for including BTS on the list, Bloomberg pointed out the group’s achievements in the United States.
