BTS Ranks 1st On TIME 100’s Reader Poll

BTS took home the 1st place spot in a recent Reader Poll for TIME 100. They may just make it onto the official list!

BTS has been announced as the winner of the 2018 TIME 100 reader poll.


Although TIME editors will be selecting the TIME 100, the online reader poll is open to the general public.

The official list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World will be announced on April 19.


BTS easily beat out runner ups South Korean president Moon Jae In and former US president Barack Obama.

The boys racked up 16% of the vote while their own president received 5%. Barack Obama received 3%. Other options included Serena Williams, Stephan King, Kim Jong Un, and more.


Last year, Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte won the reader poll with 5% of the vote and was included in the 2017 TIME 100.


Fingers crossed that BTS will be on the list this year as well! Congratulations to BTS and ARMY for another awesome honour.
