From underdogs to global superstars, BTS has had an incredible nine-year journey. In 2022, their music can be heard on radio stations around the globe, but that wasn’t always the case.
From wearing jerseys stitched with their names…
…to handing out free concert tickets, BTS did everything they could to promote their music.
In 2017, BTS hit their stride, both at home and overseas. In February, they released You Never Walk Alone, a repackaged album that broke pre-order records and introduced the queen of their discography, “Spring Day.” “Spring Day” would enter Billboard‘s “Bubbling Under Hot 100” singles chart and win “Best Song of the Year” at the 2017 Melon Music Awards.
In the hopes of boosting BTS’s radio play, BTS’s agency, BigHit Music, sent physical copies of You Never Walk Alone to radio stations across Canada and the US. The labels on these albums detailed BTS’s accomplishments from 2013 to 2017.
In June 2017, just a few months after the album’s release date, an ARMY’s father found this copy of You Never Walk Alone at a yard sale.
From the looks of it, the album was brand new or close to it. It might have never been played.
Five years later, ARMYs still remember this priceless treasure and what it represents. Despite the resistance BTS faced in the past, they prevailed, and their songs can now be heard all around the world.
Never forget, BTS’ cd was found in a garage sale…a cd that was sent by BH to US radio stations to play…which they never did…even when so many US-ARMY called and begged daily…and got cussed at and hung up on
