A Korean boy band that's gaining worldwide traction swept into London, Tuesday, fresh off a packed stadium performance in New York last week. South Korea's BTS are helping K-pop have its moment in the global mainstream. The band smashed through records in the last year, with a number one on the Billboard 200.
They also collaborated on a single with Nicki Minaj. And even spoke at the United Nations.>> But I am still an ordinary 24 year old guy.>> Their UK debut at the 02 Arena. A venue that can hold 20,000 cheering fans was completely sold out for two days straight.
> The group's been together for five years.>> And they're beginning to win over fans from several continents.
But the K pop fever that swept through the British capital, Tuesday night, surprised even die hard fans who struggled to get tickets.>> I had to get a friend with really fast internet to get them cuz I didn't manage to get them myself
o it was very stressful, it sold out really quickly it sold out in like minutes.
It was absolutely insane, I had no idea they were this popular here.
>> The band's tour heads to Europe next, before taking a victory lap through Asia into next year.>>
