BTS makes cover of 'Rolling Stone' magazine, the first all-Asian act to do so



BTS made the cover of Rolling Stone’s June issue, becoming the first all-Asian band to appear on the front of the magazine.

The 54-year-old magazine declared it “iconic, ” dramatically announcing: “Attention ARMY: after years of asking for it, BTS have finally landed on the cover of Rolling Stone.”

The media will roll out a collector’s edition box set that will feature eight collectible BTS covers, the newsstand cover with all seven members as well as seven individual covers featuring each member posing solo. It will be available in small quantity and is priced at $150.

The issue brings the septet’s first official interview this year to promote their upcoming single Butter, touted the magazine. The in-depth feature article, titled “The Triumph of BTS”, covers how the seven young men from Korea became the “biggest band in the world.”

The photographs were taken in Seoul last month by Hong Janghyun, who is favoured by fashion magazines and celebrities alike, and the artists were wearing outfits by Louis Vuitton, for which they became house ambassadors in April. – The Korea Herald/Asia News Network
