Jung-kook of Bangtan Boys, also known as BTS, has been selected by the Hollywood Reporter as one of the 25 musicians who dominated the year in music and culture.
The U.S. entertainment magazine last week published its inaugural Platinum Players power list.
The list "honors 25 acts in music who are on top of the charts and at the top of the game," from Beyoncé to Taylor Swift. "They move the needle on culture... They blend genres, set records and break them, only to set new records. They perform for thousands -- and, in some cases, millions -- on tour. In other words, these are the artists who have defined the year in music," the Hollywood Reporter said.
Jung-kook is the only K-pop artist on the list.
"BTS may have hit the pause button as various members complete military service, but [Jung-kook] is having the most fun by topping the charts with the thumping hit 'Seven,' a collaboration with Latto that reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100," the magazine said. "The song performed so well around the world that it reigns as Billboard's No. 1 global song of the summer in 2023."
