However, a lot of people doubted the group when they started. When BTS was starting as a group, RM appeared on an episode of 4 Things Show, where he read some hate comments. The haters made comments on how RM didn’t look like an idol.

Not only that, but they also left malicious comments saying that BTS’s music was terrible.

After reading this, RM gave a simple message to these haters.

I will prove it to you all.

— RM

Years later, and RM really did prove these haters wrong.

BTS went on to become K-Pop legends and helped spread K-Pop globally. Not only that, but they also became the youngest recipients to receive the Order of Cultural Merit, which is awarded to those for “outstanding meritorious services in the fields of culture and art in the interest of promoting the national culture and national development.

BTS ended up winning this award for being “a global musician who has set a new milestone in the development of Hallyu. They have lifted the status of K-Pop by becoming the first Korean artist to rank No.1 on the Billboard 200 chart with two of their albums.”
