“Will the collaboration between @BTS_twt and the Pompidou Centre happen?”— 🌸hopekidoki🌼 (🐢in🇰🇷) (@hopekidoki) August 18, 2019

The fact that the board and curators at Centre Pompidou – a world-class contemporary art museum – want to dedicate space to @BTS_twt is truly incredible.

South Korean boy band BTS received worldwide recognition in 2018 after the release of their third almub "Face Yourself". Since then, the group regularly appears on music charts across the globe; they have the most viewable music videos on YouTube and several prestigious music awards, including four Billboard music awards and an American music award. The band attended the UN's 73 General Assembly to launch a new youth initiative, becoming the first-ever South Korean band to appear at a session of the international intergovermental orgzanisaion.
In 2018, BTS went on their third world tour - Love Yourself - which ended on 11 August, 2019 with a major show in Seoul. The following day, their label BigHit Entertaiment announced that the group was taking a long hiatus from performing to have a proper rest.
