“Sheer luck” sure anyone’s success in life takes a certain amount of luck and timing. In the age of recognizing “white privilege” I’ve come to recognize your circumstances in life play a much larger role in success then people account for. But if you look at bts and their circumstances everything at some point worked against them. Not only in Korea but in America were “luck” is even more rare when it comes to POC achieving success. So sure let’s just call it sheer luck.

Like Jungkook said in burn the stage, they've been lucky but they also worked very hard for that luck. There's certainly an element of it for them to overcome the mountain of challenges they faced, both domestically and internationally, but to handwave it as only (or even mostly) luck does them a
disservice. But it goes down easier for some people when faced with the question of 'why hasn't this happened for my fave?'

Agreed. What’s the old saying? “luck is when preparation meets opportunity”

"A lot of it" =/= all of it
