EXCLUSIVE: BTS Celebrate Their Biggest Album Ever and Reveal What They Love About Themselves

Welcome to BTS' next chapter.

The K-pop boyband shocked the biggest names in music when they beat out artists like Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez for the Top Social Artist award at the Billboard Music Awards in May -- but their success is no surprise.

With 8.4 million Twitter followers and a fan base so dedicated it's referred to as ARMY, BTS is one of the hottest acts in Asia, and soon, the United States.

"There is much more recognition of BTS music than before the BBMAs," V, one of the band's seven members, told ET. "Which means fans have higher expectations than before. We're trying to live up to it and I hope the new album can be the answer to that expectation."

The new album, Love Yourself: Her, dropped on Monday and was even shattering records weeks before its release with over one million pre-orders, according to BTS' label, BigHit Entertainment. By Tuesday, Love Yourself had already topped the iTunes Album charts at No. 1 in a record-breaking 73 countries, the largest debut release for any South Korean artists. And "DNA," the album's lead single, is also blowing up on YouTube with nearly 30 million views since its early Monday release.

ET caught up with V, Rap Monster, Jimin, Jin, Jungkook, Suga and J-Hope on Tuesday, where they opened up about their incredible success, their fifth EP, and what's next.

Chanyeol turns heads at Tommy Hilfiger’s Fall 2017 show

No One Wore the Tommy Look Better Than EXO’s Chanyeol

The theme of Tommy Hilfiger’s Fall 2017 show may have been rock circus, but the most dynamic presence in the front row was a pop superstar. South Korean boy band member Park Chan-yeol (aka Chanyeol) stole the spotlight the moment he arrived, gaining the attention of photographers and countless fans who lined up to snap pictures of him with their iPhones. A singer, rapper, and member of K-pop juggernaut EXO, Chanyeol is a superstar in Asia and has the chic personal style to show for it. Where other celebrities may go with outlandish runway looks or clothes designed to get attention, Chanyeol often plays it cool, opting for a classic wardrobe that speaks to his status as a heartthrob.

Though he has experimented with wild hair colors and flashier looks in the past, Chanyeol’s wardrobe has become more understated of late. His Tommy look of a plaid shirt, white tee, and color-blocked windbreaker was fashionable without trying hard, and it’s that kind of effortlessness that he cultivates off-duty. Whether he’s breezing through an airport in an oversize trench coat and ripped jeans, or donning a Vetements bomber jacket, he’s the rare pop star who lets his attitude shine rather than his latest runway acquisitions—all of which makes him an ideal representative for all things Tommy.

See him headed into Heathrow in one of the brand’s gray sweatshirts and a pair of tailored trousers, or walking around London in a fuzzy blue and red fleece with a ’90s vibe. Chanyeol embodied the ease Hilfiger is known for, and provided the brand with something everyone can appreciate—effortless casual style.

Has the next Idol School elimination been spoiled by the eliminees themselves?

After last week's episode, Idol School fans noticed that several of the trainees from Idol School had suddenly reappeared on social media (instagram) ahead of this Friday's elimination. This would imply that the girls have their phones back and therefore have been eliminated from the programme.

Everything below is potentially a spoiler.
