"It's all because of [the Army]," RM told "GMA." "We just practice hard, made our music to the best [of our ability]. We can't pay [them] enough, but [the fans] send love and support and that's how it happened. It's all because of [the] Army."

The seven young members, who are all in their 20s, have connected with fans around the world with positive messages for young listeners. On Monday, the group made history as the first ever K-Pop group to address the United Nations.

"No matter who you are, where you're from, your skin color, gender identity: speak yourself," RM said at the UN General Assembly with his bandmates at his side.

The dancers said BTS songs are relatable because they address the pressures of growing up.

"Especially the young generation, they need this," RM said. "True love first begins with loving ourselves and we hope [the] Army can do the same too."
