Concept: BTS started out with a very strong hip hop concept. While that’s softened over the years, there’s still influences of that in most of their music. Starting in 2015, BTS became known for their storytelling through music videos, which had compelling plot lines and cryptic visual images. Many other groups followed in a similar style. Above all, they’re known as a youth-oriented and socially conscious group that writes lyrics many people relate to.
