“BTS and K-pop’s future” by Si-hyuk Bang

BTS is unique in that all of the members freely produce their own version of music and performances. They have all three factors of internal motivation: autonomy, purpose, and mastery. Once it’s put into a motion, it becomes a self-sustaining group of success. Add to this, the group synergy, and you have a world-class formidable group. Remember, they started out as a group of country bumpkin teens.
