With BTS' rising popularity, everyone thought that they're the next One Direction! However, their fans think that the boys have surpassed One Direction in every possible way. Do we smell a rivalry between the Army and the Directioners? Well, there is some! So what you are waiting for? Scroll down and watch the video!
Both groups have produced amazing music, and we love vibing to it. BTS talks a lot about mental health, psychological issues, and daily-life ups and downs in their songs. These details are common yet very important to be discussed.
On the other hand, 1D's songs were mostly of the teen-pop genre revolving around the themes like the teen-love story. However, through their media presence, they have also raised their voices against social and racial issues.
Coming to the music videos, we cannot say that anyone does it better than BTS. Each of their video, the concept, and the set is pretty enough to blow our minds away. 1D also released good music videos but BTS' videos are on the next level.
1D is famous for its amazing performances but the members did not use to dance. They just sing while, BTS pulls off its extremely hard choreography with live singing. The members never miss a beat or do less in their singing.
4. Fan base:
Talking about one of the most important points, the fandom, both bands have a dedicated bunch of people as their fans. One Direction was more famous in North America and some Asian countries.
The fandom was enormous and is even still present after 5 years of Zayn's departure from the group. And the band still get awards because their fans vote and preach their message everywhere.
While in the case of BTS, the estimated count of their fans is around 150 million. Though some other artists have the same number of fans, the unique thing about Armies is diversity. They belong to countries which a lot of people don't even know about! Marvelous, isn't it?
In short, both groups are amazingly talented. People get surprised at BTS' success because they are a Korean boy band who sings in their own language.
The pop industry has always been dominated by the mainstream English-speaking artists. But BTS has shown that music is not just about a language. It's more than that! Since 'Despacito' we haven't heard any foreign song being played all around the world, but BTS said, no more! We are here to serve and treat everyone. And who can say no to them?
We love both of the groups and wish them all the best for their future! Also, it must be a killer combination if both the bands collaborate with each other. We hope to see their encounter very soon. Do you want it too? Let us know in the comments below!
