With the group announcing a break to enjoy their 20’s now is a good time to reflect on the contributions of the world’s most popular boy-band.

BTS generated over $3.5Bn of economic value for the Korean economy in 2017 and is the reason 796,000 foreigners visit Korea annually according to the Hyundai Research Institute.

The group is also responsible for contributing $1.1Bn worth of consumer goods exports for the Korean economy including clothing, cosmetics and food products, making up approx 1.7% of total consumer goods exports.
