The massively popular K-pop group BTS had fans over the moon when they announced their latest album Map Of The Soul: 7 in January. The 7 in the title refers to a number of things like BTS’ seventh studio album, the group’s seven members (V, J-Hope, RM, Jin, Jimin, Jungkook, and Suga), and the seven years since the band was formed.
