The most popular K-Pop Groups of 2019 by Billboard.
With a whole new year ahead, we all have a clean slate to try out new things and even do better to achieve our goals and set out to make plans finally happen. The new decade also welcomes us with the latest trends and those that continue to rise.
In the past few years, we have seen the growing popularity of the K-wave from Korean skincare products, food, fashion, and music. Korean boyband BTS continues to make hits that always find a spot at the top of charts and have become influential icons to their fans and pop culture worldwide.
Beyond the charm and musical prowess these boys possess, they also live by words and philosophies that can help motivate and inspire us. To start your day right or if you are looking for a sign, these quotes by the band members themselves will surely give you the right push you need.
If you don’t work hard, there won’t be a good result.
It pays to give the effort to get what you want. And the better you do, expect an even greater outcome from your hard work. Doing more definitely pays off in the end.
I’m your hope. I’m your angel.
When in doubt, remember there’s always the people closest to you that you can count to give you hope and get you through.
Trying to comfort myself. I tell myself the world can’t be perfect. I started to let myself go.
When you feel like the current situation is a mess, don’t get lost in all of it. Remind yourself of your worth and that mistakes come around to teach us. Let go and keep learning.
Failure is the mother of a successful mother. I learned from that passion and sincerity.
Even when you are passionate about what you do, there will be shortcomings now and then. When you learn from them, you keep growing, and you will even get better at your craft.
Even when this rain stops, when the clouds go away, I stand here, just the same.
During hard times, don’t let negativity beat you up. Rain or shine, remember to keep going and come out stronger every time you fall.
So please don’t leave me you got the best of me.
Sometimes our best won’t be enough to make a special someone stay. But having them become a part of your life can still be something to be grateful for whether your connection lasted long or was short-lived.
My love is eternal; it’s all free for you baby.
Give love like confetti: all out and free to your special someone. Love should still be around even when the relationship has highs and lows.
A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.
Even a positive look on your face can say so much to the person next to you without saying a word. Offering a smile can make a big difference.
Let’s not push off the things we need to do today for tomorrow.
When you have the time now, start working on it. Our idol wants us to get to work right away and avoid procrastinating. Begin now, and have no worries later.
Know that the pain will pass, and when it does, you will be stronger.
It is okay to dwell and feel hurt. There is no need for you to rush into showing off that it’s all fine when you know to yourself it isn’t really. Take your time. Healing is a process that has no fixed length.
Don’t touch my face.
This is one of the sassiest J-Hope’s lines. Remember, if there’s any way to boost your confidence, know that there’s something in you that can’t be touched and puts you on top.
The music helped me sympathize with our young generation and also empathize with them. I’d like to create and write more music that represents them.
Even the members themselves learn through their craft and fans. The connection Army’s share with the band is truly powerful and supportive.
Never give up on a dream that you’ve been chasing almost your whole life.
When you give your best to achieve something, don’t let it go easily. You deserve to enjoy the fruits of your labor and live life according to your vision. Don’t let anything stop you from reaching your goal.
Go on your own path even if you live for a day.
Even if there are other directions, you could take, at the end of the day, what matters most is the path you truly want to take.
Even if I’m a little hurt, it is okay.
We all get hurt every once in a while, and what hurts us may not be the same for others, and that’s what makes all of us unique too. The pain will rub off eventually, and you will get through.
We both know it’s better if we just let it go.
Sometimes forcing yourself to hold on isn’t always the answer. Know when you feel like a situation is all too much to take and to let go for the better.
Once your heart is moved, it will develop to something better and positive.
Life lessons can really touch us, and it’s important that we learn from them and carry it throughout the journey of living. Whether they’re good or bad, use each lesson to keep improving and create the best version of yourself.
You nice, keep going.
Stay kind, and don’t forget to keep trying every day. There’s a fighter in all of us.
I hate you so much, but even now, I am thinking of you.
The people we dislike can even tell us more about ourselves than what we know of them. When things go sour or don’t go according to plan, never forget what they’ve taught you.
Sometimes it can get so hard pretending that it’s okay.
You don’t always need to have a tough exterior. Even showing emotion is a sign of strength.
There is beauty in everything, just that not everyone sees it.
Similar to the famous proverb, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We all have different perceptions of what is pretty or pleasing, and there’s no need to please everyone.
Don’t leave me, I’m begging you. Please tell me you love me.
When you’re truly in love, you’ll do everything to make your special someone to stay. But don’t let romantic relationships dictate your worth. You have to love yourself too.
Throw a stone at me if you’ve done as much as I did.
Keep in mind the effort you exert. Maybe not everyone recognizes it, but it’s good to give yourself a pat on the back for giving a hundred percent.
Not so perfect, but so beautiful.
There’s beauty in the simplest and messiest of things. Beauty isn’t always about what’s desirable, but rather what’s real.
Your presence can give happiness. I hope you remember that.
When you wonder why you’re here, remember this. Your place here has a purpose worth living for.
Those who want to look more youthful should live life with a young heart.
Life is short, but you shouldn’t have to rush yourself. Enjoy your youth and have fun.
When something is delicious, it’s zero calories.
Enjoying life also means savoring your meals. Don’t think too much of calories when you’re treating yourself.
Live life with no worries.
Life shouldn’t be all stress. Learn to chill and have fun.
You should always smile in life.
The boys have the brightest smiles, and so do you! Like sunshine, it can really lighten up anyone’s mood.

Your presence can give happiness. I hope you remember that.
When seeing a certain someone makes your day, you do the same for others around you. So whenever you wonder why you’re around, your presence means a lot, especially those who are close to your heart.
Living without passion is like being dead.
When you know what you love, it’s all the more fun to live out your life, and it’s okay if you don’t know what exactly that is at the moment. The best part of living is finding yourself and the satisfaction you get once you know what your passion is.
I’d rather die than live without passion.
Philosophically, can you ever actually live without passion? Man is destined for purpose fueled by passion, so even if you’re unsure of it now, then certainly you just have to keep exploring.
Life isn’t about being perfect; it’s about accomplishing your dreams.
Even if we have it all planned out, some things we expect can backfire, but that doesn’t stop us from achieving. Fulfilling a purpose requires you to live up to the moment and make dreams happen.
All our dreams come true if we have the courage to pursue them.
Courage to make things happen is the first step and is half of the process. If you live in doubt, nothing can be accomplished. Believing in the dream gives you a reason to keep chasing it.
Will you stay by my side? Will you promise me?
Love requires you and your partner to face everything together – all the good and bad. Being there for each other will make both of you and your connection stronger.
Don’t call me that, don’t call me Oppa.
Served with sass, but a totally different take: even our idols want to be recognized as our buds or pals. Crushing on them is a real thrill, but seeing them as the boys they truly are is worth appreciating too.
Effort makes you. You will regret someday if you don’t do your best now. Don’t think
It’s too late to keep working on it.
Keep working for your dream. It’s not about the race to achieve it but your effort to make it possible.
It may take time, but there’s nothing that gets worse due to practicing. So practice. You may get depressed, but it is evidence that you are doing good.
To be good at something, you have to train yourself regularly. The more practice, the better you get.
To the world, you may be one person. But to one person, you may be the world.
Even if you wonder about your purpose and meaning, look around to the people, you cherish. You are their world worth to treasure and keep.
Live your life, it’s yours anyway. Don’t try too hard; it’s okay to lose.
Living isn’t about victories but even the failures. Our mistakes can teach us the best lessons and mold us to be the best.
Don’t be trapped in someone else’s dream.
Live your life according to your vision. This is what makes it fulfilling for you. Living up to other people’s expectations can put a lot of pressure on you and lose the point of your individuality.
I wish I could ask you what you think of me.
It matters to know what others think of you rather than how you see yourself. This could be constructive for you to know where you can improve.
You are the cause of my euphoria.
We all know this popular lyric, right? All the boys are our cause of euphoria for sure.
The reason we shine is because you give up the light to shine and we’ll be the moon for you.
One of the sweetest lines any army knows. The relationship that the fans and group shares are one that we both work on together – supporting them and inspiring us.
I have a big heart full of love, so please take it all.
Give out love unconditionally, but leave some for yourself. You deserve to be treated with love and respect too.
You know you really love someone when you don’t hate them for breaking your heart.
Even the people who hurt us are people we should be grateful for. They teach us some things that we might not learn on our own or learn from other people.
You’re too young to let the world break you.
And don’t let those tough times get to you. Remember that every time you fall, you can still stand up and try again until you’re better.
You can’t just come into someone’s life, make them feel special, and then leave.
Treat your partner with love and respect, and commit to someone you know is the one for sure.
Purple is the last of the rainbow colors, so it means I will love and trust you for a long time.
The inspiration behind the Purple Heart icon that the Army fandom uses means, love like a rainbow that seems to never end.
You are part of my story, memory, and scenery. Thank you.
People in your life, whether they last for a moment or more, are all worth remembering. Even those you know for only a short while can teach you so much.
Stop playing hard to get before I kick you in the butt!
Often it’s fun to get to play around, but work will usually call for serious business to accomplish anything. Know when it’s playtime or to get into productivity mode.
You can be unhappy but still feel happy when with others.
Sometimes maybe you aren’t in the right crowd. If you don’t find the happiness you know you deserve, it’s out there for sure with the people who always treat you right.
Happiness is not something that you have to achieve. You can still feel happy during the process of achieving something.
Happiness isn’t always the goal. Whatever we may feel at the end is only a fraction of the whole achievement. It’s about what we learn from it and how we continue to keep learning.
Look up. And we are all looking up at the same sky.
When you feel so small, remember each one of us is a part of something that creates the bigger picture, and that we need each other in this lifelong journey.
Everyone suffers in their life. There are many sad days. But rather than sad days, we hope to make better days. That’s what makes us live. That’s what makes us dream.
The sad days remind us of what matters and who’s around to stick with us. When we learn to keep trying and go through the pain, we often remind ourselves why you want to achieve a dream in the first place – giving you the push you’re looking for.
If you want to love others, I think you should love yourself first.
An often note made here. Remember, self-love is greater than romantic or the platonic love you give out.
Even if you’re not perfect, you’re limited edition.
Our individuality is what makes us stand out. It’s not about being ideal, it’s all about being YOU.
Maybe I made a mistake yesterday, but yesterday’s me is still me.
Even when you fail, don’t let it beat you up. Let each failure teach you to do better.
Life is more beautiful knowing that we’ve taken a loan on death.
Like how we used to say YOLO, living your life to the fullest is about living it the way you want to.
Light is treasured more when there’s darkness.
Most of the time, we treasure something once we start losing it. Make little things matter, and know that everything has worth that should be appreciated.
Thank you for staying with us despite the language barriers and distance.
The group has always been so grateful for all their fans around the world. Even if they’re distant from us and speak a different language, their music and personality have brought Armies together.
People want to be alone, but they don’t like feeling lonely.
Although having some personal space is important, sometimes it is a company that makes us feel better. When you know your friend might need a buddy around, don’t hesitate to approach. You just might be the person they need.
Although youth can be beautiful, it can be short and wander off; like a shadow, it has a reckless danger to it.
When we say live life to the fullest, we do mean it with caution. Get to know yourself, your friends, and what you want to do; and make sure to have a plan.
I go somewhere I haven’t been and just watch people and colors. That’s my inspiration.
Even the little things can have the inspiration you are looking for.
Music really transcends languages, and it means so much.
Even if I can’t completely understand the lyrics, it’s the power that music makes us feel, and that’s pretty amazing. The beat and how the lyrics are enunciated can say so much and move us.
I’ve had to accept that – that everyone cannot love me. Because when there’s love, there’s hate. When there’s light, there’s dark. But it was really hard to accept as an artist that there’s a lot of people that hate me, but on the other side, there are many more people who love me. I think everyone goes through that.
Life isn’t lived to please others; your life is meant for YOU. You may listen to what people say, but at the end of the day, remember to put yourself first and do what you know is best for you.
I’m like a surfer, first you just paddle and fall off the board, but as time goes by, you can stand up on the bigger waves.
Even challenges and obstacles make us better. With perseverance and determination, you can keep improving, getting better with time. It takes a lot of patience but it will be worth it.
We’re on some path that’s set since we’re born, but I still believe we can change some things. So I believe in my faith, but I still don’t believe in my fate.
We may think that what comes to us in life is just fate or destined for us, but our choices too can change the events and possibilities we can experience, especially our biggest dreams that need some extra action rather than waiting for the sign to make them come true.
BTS are Korean’s best male pop music stars with a heart.Unknown
BTS members are not just performers because they have a heart that inspires people.
Popularity is a bubble. It’s a mountain: you can go up really hard but walk down really fast.
Popularity is often associated with power, having lots of friends, and being influential. Popularity is seen as if it is an unattainable goal for ordinary people and is all glorious and glamorous. Being a pop icon also comes with responsibilities, just like the reputation of an average person. You still depend on yourself to protect your dignity, and must always be humble and open to working with the people around you. Practicing good values helps protect your name and affects how people see you too.
Every moment is memorable to me.
Like making every moment count, it’s also good to reflect on your memories and what you’ve learned and experienced from them.
If I’m the sun, you’re the moon because when I rise, you go down.
On the more sassy side of this idol, it’s good to remind yourself that you’ve got something no one else has that puts you on the rise.
I try not to be influenced by success or popularity.
And life isn’t all success or popularity. We all have downs, and all of us might not have a big name, and that does not dictate our success or progress. It’s all a matter of how we endure the process of growing and what we gain from it.
Life is tough, and things don’t always work out well, but we should be brave and go on with our lives.
Words of wisdom from our Suga babe: keep going even if you are afraid. Courage to face fear is what makes us braver.
You were born to be real, not to be perfect.
Always remember to let your true colors show. There’s no need to hide or fit in to people’s standard to be accepted. The right people will accept you for who you are.
If it can make you happy then it’s somewhat important.
Always make your happiness a priority, even in the little things that cheer you up.
If you want to aim high, aim high.
Starting with small goals is good, but don’t stop there. In order to keep growing, you need to keep outdoing yourself and setting new goals after accomplishing old ones.
Don’t let that studying consume you.
Even as students, don’t let life be defined by grades and homework. You go to school to learn to be your best, not perfect. Mistakes are normal, and it’s important for you to be able to learn from them and do better in the next task.
Just live life.
Need I say more? Don’t let anything hold you back. Just have fun the way you want to!
In the end, they’ll all judge me anyway. So whatever.
You don’t always need everyone’s opinion. Like Suga has said, if it makes you happy, it matters, and your judgement can also be the best advice for yourself.
I want people to get positive energy from our music.
This is truly the vibe BTS delivers, we can all agree for sure. Making us dance, fall in love, and have a good time whenever they’re on our playlist.
Fashion tells about who you are from an external point of view.
Your style can say so much about yourself (or maybe the weather), but remember to put comfort first to a stylish and cozy outfit.
Emotions are so different in every situation and every moment, so I think to agonize every moment is what life is.
We all go through bad times differently. We may not feel what others would feel and what could hurt for us may be different for them. Listening matters a lot in relationships, and to empathize, helps deepen our understanding of what a friend could be going through.
Besides their interviews, vlogs, and conversations during concerts, their songs also have popular quotes that will get you singing along!
Do something, put away your weakness.No More Dream
Show that you have something to give. Be strong even if things go wrong. Don’t be weakened by trials.
We are like parallel lines; we are so different though we both are looking at the same place.Danger
Even if we are different, we all live in the same world. We should treat each other right with respect and gratitude.
I feel alive although it’s hard and tough,Born Singer
I can handle it cause you’re supporting me,
I can stand the pain cause I can hear you shouting my name
So long as someone is there to support you, you’ll never go wrong. A friend or a special someone makes the pain go away.
You’re just like a butterfly.Butterfly
A butterfly starts its life from a caterpillar stage. From struggles, you can improve your life by working hard and become like a butterfly.
From afar, I steal glances; if we touch hands, will I lose you?Butterfly
If you love a person, you should be happy with his achievements. Fly together and grow like a butterfly with flying colors.
You shine in this pitch darkness that is the butterfly effect.Butterfly
Shine like a butterfly and show your beauty by inspiring people to live their lives with happiness.
Your light touches, I forget the reality at once.Butterfly
A person who brings joy to his fellowmen influences others to be happy too, forgetting the sadness brought about by life’s challenges.
Let’s run run run again! It’s ok to fall down.Run
Let’s run run run again! It’s ok to be injured.
If there’s an opportunity to improve your current status, go and grab it even if it means being hurt. The fruits will be rewarding.
I am happy enough even though I can’t get youRun
Curse me, this foolish destiny!
Even if you can’t get what you want, enjoy the things you have right now. While some people believe in destiny, others blame it for their current situation.

When I think of you, the sun comes out.Save Me
The person whom you love so much will make your day brighter and your nights warmer.

Sometimes, a person who loves gets tired and becomes cold. That’s why you have to reciprocate love with love.
But why is there this fear/In between the happiness?/Because we know too wellMikrokosmos
that this place is really a desert.
In the dark night (don’t be lonely)/Like the stars (we shine)/Don’t disappear/Because you’re a great existence/Let us shine.
While there is fear in this world, it will be a better place if you allow yourself to give and share your blessings every time.
The BTS Korean group has a big impact on the young generations. The above-mentioned quotes just prove that they are not only fashionable but also a great inspiration to a lot of people. They are Koreans who can express themselves in different ways that captivate the hearts and minds of people.
