BTS: Close Up With the Hottest K-Pop Group

They're tearing up our hearts and the charts.

The Korean boy band BTS (a.k.a. Bangtan Boys) is — quite literally — the hottest ticket in town. According to Forbes, admission prices for the group's five-city U.S. tour are expected to outpace those of any other on the secondary market this summer (sorry, Britney Spears!) due to high demand.

It's not hard to see why: Formed in 2012, BTS (their full name translates to "Bulletproof Boy Scouts") recently became the first K-pop band with a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, and they currently have two songs on the Pop Songs chart. (The only other Korean artist to crack the Pop Songs chart: Psy with "Gangam Style"). Plus, they're just so darn cute!

And so, with BTS' global domination imminent, a look at the best pics of Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook.
