BTS, often known also as Bangtan Boys or Beyond The Scene, is a popular K-Pop group based in South Korea, formed by Big Hit Entertainment.

BTS debuted on June 13, 2013, and within the year received several "New Artist of the Year" awards for their album "2 Cool 4 Skool", and also later received major bonsang awards (for notable musical achievements) for their following albums "Dark & Wild" and "The Most Beautiful Moment In Life, Part 1".

BTS rose to popularity with their The Most Beautiful Moment In Life trilogy, including "The Most Beautiful Moment In Life, Part 2" and "The Most Beautiful Moment In Life: Young Forever", which won them the prized daesang ("Album of the Year") award for 2016. BTS' second full album "Wings" broke records; becoming the highest charted K-Pop album ever on the US Billboard 200, and even going on to win the daesang for 2017 consecutively.

Including their next album "You Never Walk Alone", BTS is estimated to have sold over 4 million albums worldwide. BTS ranked #5 in Forbes magazine's Korea Power Celebrity list in February 2017, and in June, Time magazine named the band one of the 25 Most Influential People On The Internet. BTS went on to become the first ever K-Pop group to attend and win an award at the Billboard Music Awards in 2017 (Top Social Artist).

In September 2017, BTS's mini-album "Love Yourself:Her" debuted at number 7 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart, which ranks the weekly most popular albums in the U.S. The group broke their own record from the previous album, "Wings", in becoming K-Pop's highest-charting album ever on the Billboard 200, as well as the genre's biggest sales week. Notably, "Wings" and "Love Yourself: Her" are the only K-Pop albums that have ever charted in the Billboard top 40.

In the same year, BTS made history by being the first Korean artist to preform at a televised American Music Award show. BTS also went on to preform on the American yearly New Years program, New Year's Rockin' Eve.

VKook

  • Stop My Heart- "What does it feel like?" "What?" "Knowing you fixed the heart of the man who broke yours?" (wowoashley)
  • I Bloomed For You...- Jungkook just barely registered the warm soft skin of Taehyung’s palm, before his whole world changed. His skin prickled almost painfully, and it felt like somebody had sent a great wave of electricity crackling through him. The world went black for barely a second as a strange weight settled in his chest, and then the world came rushing back like a flood. He looked up with wide eyes at Taehyung - no, at his soulmate - and expected to be met with the same surprised eyes as his own, but Taehyung just looked at him with a carefree smile. “See you soon, Jungkookie,” he grinned teasingly before releasing Jungkook’s hand and turning around to leave. Jungkook stood there for several minutes, just staring at the spot where Taehyung had disappeared, with only one thought in his head. Why had his soulmate just left him? (Meanie_Beanie_nim)
  • Oh Darling, Stand By Me- Kim Taehyung had never coped well when there was an angry alpha around, no matter that he wasn't the object of their fury. Wisely choosing to keep his mouth shut, he ignored the flaring annoyance building up inside his chest at being treated like a frail and delicate porcelain doll who didn't know any better, once again. He wasn't frail. He wasn't delicate. And he also wasn't anywhere near ignorant. "And how do you suggest we do that?" Alpha Jeon asked eventually, tiredly taking a seat when he realized Alpha Kim was not about to open his mouth any time soon. "How else, Alpha Jeon," Alpha Park said easily, an eerie smile taking over her lips as she regarded both the kings levelly, "Just like we have sealed our alliances with one another, of course." (Beatitudinem)
  • If I Let Go Of Your Hand...- Jungkook is not going to stop searching for answers until he knows that Taehyung can be safe in his arms; alive, breathing, smiling, and the both of them can finally do what they’ve never been able to do before: Live. (taehansik)
  • Feel Me- Taehyung never asked for this. This gift that was more like a curse that damned him to a life of confusion, never knowing if what he felt were his own emotions or somebody else's. He never asked to become an Empath, to be be Bestowed. Now all the emotions in and around him were taking over his life and driving him to the point of insanity. (SevenSoulmates)
  • Lupi- This is one summer break that Taehyung will never forget. From dealing with a moody mare that likes to think she’s a stroppy teenager rather than a horse, to dealing with childhood memories that threaten to choke him, Taehyung will soon find out that when you take a trip down memory lane, some things are more than just memories. (kpopismydrug)
  • Bang Bang, You Shot Me Down- Taehyung is desperate for vengeance and has a lover more than willing to kill alongside him. “Revenge, Jeongguk, is a dish best served cold. Fuck that.” Taehyung grinned, both hands on Jeongguk's hips. “It’s hot outside and my blood is boiling. Together, baby, we’ll serve it ablaze.” (taehansik)

Vmin

  • HURTS SO GOOD- Taehyung and Jimin been best friends for as long as they can remember. If only they stuck to doing things that best friends were supposed to do, then maybe Jimin wouldn't be feeling this way. They're friends who have the occasional make out session and every once in a while have sex simply cause they both aren't in a relationship. Who needs one when you have your best friend? It was really just a way to pass time. No feelings or anything. It starts to become a normal routine for Jimin and Taehyung and they still manage to remain just friends. But what happens when one of them starts a relationship and it might be serious this time? Jimin is starting to find it impossible to let it all end so suddenly. But what is he supposed to do? His best friend has a boyfriend now. Everything should be fine if Jimin just ends it once and for all, but he can't bring himself to do it. At least not now...and it's all because of one simple thing...he's in love with Kim Taehyung. (tinyheartii)
  • Caught in a Lie- Taehyung's best friend Jiminie went missing when he was twelve years old. Six years later Taehyung is working in New York's most prestigious strip club, LIE, when he meets the owner of the club and his boss, a mob syndicate heir who looks eerily like the best friend he had thought was dead. (KittenSmitten) (mysoulrunswithwolves)

Yoonseok

  • Everything Gone Wrong- The first thing that went wrong in Yoongi's life was when his parents signed him up as a volunteer for the new governmental genetic experiment. Then he woke up as a sort of human-wolf hybrid. And got stuck with six idiots under the same roof. All of them are eager to find out their ranks, and Yoongi specially wants to Alpha them all. He should have known that nothing would go as he desired. (Alexxy)

Taegi

  • Affinity- Yoongi just wants a normal life… and for Jimin to wear pants. Taehyung, well, he just wants to make Yoongi smile. (Meanie_Beanie_nim)
  • Just Skin- Yoongi is small and angry and 200% done with having feelings; Taehyung is Taehyung; Hoseok harasses Yoongi with petnames and Jimin ships Yoonseok. That's basically it. (syubology)

Yoonmin

  • Alternate- Jimin has nothing. His family is gone, he has no friends and to top it off he has to move across the country and start at a new school. He lives in a state of depression but when he goes to sleep, he enters another reality in his dreams where he is a part of a k-pop hip hop group called BTS. There, he is happy, he has his parents, he has friends and he is loved. He believes this world to be a dream, but what he doesn't know is that it is very real. The world in his head is as real as anything else. Jimin starts to slowly come out of his depressive state but every night when he goes to sleep he finds he is more happy than he has ever been in his life, with his new life and his new bandmates. Will he continue to go back and forth or will he have to choose one reality over the other? (SevenSoulmates)
  • Kith- On the night of his first proper hunt Yoongi finds his life changed forever at the hands of hunters. Forced to flee his den and cross the border for survival, he doesn't imagine that he will survive the night alone. But when two other neugdaes stumble upon him, Yoongi discovers that he might just make it yet. (BabyLove)
  • Awake- Namjoon transfers to the Recovery Center to look after an illusionist, a teleporter, a wolf, a wraith, and 8 other ex-patients/experiments of a destroyed scientific facility. He probably should have stayed in Seoul. aka the AU where Jimin is an involuntary exhibitionist, Jin makes people see things, Taehyung wants to go home, Yoongi has a tail, and Jungkook and Hoseok are the unlucky neighbors. (YeonAhsaengie)

Namjin

  • Beta Tau Sigma- A collection of events occurring within (and without) the walls of the Beta Tau Sigma fraternity house. At Beta Tau Sigma, there are only a few rules: 1) have a declared major in the College of Music; 2) keep your GPA above a 3.4; 3) don't let Taehyung into the liquor cabinet; 4) don't fuck up with Kim Seokjin. The rest is all fine print. (bazooka)
  • A pack's price- Kim Seokjin is an omega that was casted out of his pack after bringing home the scent of alpha's belonging to another pack. Wounded and alone, he meets two omegas who eagerly take him back to their den. He quickly realizes the rest of the pack members are all alphas and they take him in generously. But his old pack will not forget his betrayal so easily. With him being a target of both his old pack and a rival pack seeking new omegas, will Namjoon and the rest of the alphas be able to protect them? (Empathetic Shipper)

  • Fall In Love? I Don't Think So- “Be glad you have someone who actually goes through all the trouble to ask you out, hyung.” “Who knows,” Jin arched his brow, “Maybe you’ll meet your someone soon.” “Me?” Jimin pointed at himself. “Thanks but no thanks. I’m busy enough as is at the moment. The last thing I need is falling head over heels over someone.” “You never know.” Seokjin smiled, “You just might.” Jimin tilted his head in confusion, “Might what?” “Fall.” In which everyone is either in love, falling in love, or trying not to. (SmileyJen)
  • Nu ABO: A Memoir by Park Jimin- The world didn't think it was necessary to give him a guide when it shoved all of these omega hormones at him, so here it is, Park Jimin's handbook on dealing with heats, unrequited love, and Jeon Jungkook. (decompositionbooks)

Yoonjin

  • Heists and Hearts- "Give me a number,” Yoongi says when Namjoon finally turns around in his computer chair. Namjoon looks at him and sighs. "One." It's not the first time he's stumped with one plan. Namjoon looks at Yoongi, eyes trained on him like a hawk. “One?” Yoongi asks, voice low. “One,” Namjoon repeats, “and you’re not going to like it.” There’s a hint of curiosity in Yoongi’s eyes and a question attempts to come out from his lips. But instead, Namjoon hears the order from his partner. “Call them in.” (whenflowersbloom)
  • A Gilded World- Jeon Seokjin has exactly four weeks to stop the impending engagement of his younger brother, doomed to a loveless marriage. The only way to stop it is to make a better match, more advantageous, more lucrative for the Jeon family. It's impossible. It's his only option. Min Yoongi does not want, will never want, will never ever even consider, marriage. It's not in the cards. He's stubborn enough to achieve the total ban on marriage talks. Except maybe his grandmother is a little more stubborn than he is, and maybe she's determined to see him march down the aisle. The chaebol arranged marriage au that exactly one and a half people asked for. (smiles)
  • Echo Chorus- Persuasion AU. Five years ago, Seokjin was persuaded to break up with the only man he has loved, brilliant producer and adoring boyfriend Min Yoongi.

  • I Already Found Happiness: then you came along- Yoongi says it first. “I’m sorry.” Hoseok smiles and shakes his head. “No, I’m sorry. We both-” Hoseok sighs, looking to Tae and Jimin who look like deer in the headlights when Yoongi turns to them too. “We need them.” The words hang in the air and no one can think of anything to say after that. AKA Yoongi and Hoseok are happily dating. So are Taehyung and Jimin. But chemistry is chemistry. (aprofessorstale)
  • Just Hold On- AU where some people are Touched, possessing supernatural mental abilities that are physically straining. The seven, a combination of Touched and Untouched caring for one another, live and travel together in tiny houses. Their relationship faces new challenges as they encounter a mysterious force. (idyllic_hummingbird)
  • Up We Go- “If you’re a witch that works with plants, then why are all of yours dead? That can’t be good for business.” The room dims again, and Jimin lifts a hand to flip off the ceiling. Taehyung knows he’s sad and that’s why the shop darkens and he shouldn’t find it funny—but he can’t help it. Because this is ridiculous. The good kind of ridiculous. The amazing kind. (In which Taehyung has a green thumb, Jimin runs a magical store, and Yoongi can kind of see dead people.) (Oh_Hey_Tae)
  • Unmagical Moonlight- The door closed. Taehyung was struck by the reverberation of it and wondered just how many more doors had to be closed and him left behind before he was the one leaving. Taehyung keeps searching for magic in the moonlight. It takes him a long time to finally find it. (AlixSkyeDawg)
  • Getting Help (Getting Better)- Being a Beta kind of really sucks sometimes. And, sometimes, it doesn't. The line between the two can be pretty blurry though, so it's best to tread carefully. (CynoDemure)
  • Do You Know What Love Is?- Love never came easy for them. It seemed everything in their lives would always be a constant cycle of loving, heartbreak, and forgetting. Love came to them in ways they’d never recognize, and in ways they never understood, because love never came easy for them. (jimins_dongsaeng)
