BTS renew deal with Big Hit Entertainment

By | Published on Friday 19 October 2018


K-pop big potatoes BTS have renewed their deal with South Korean management company and record label Big Hit Entertainment through to 2026. Well, the BTS machine doesn’t appear to be damaged, so what would be the sense in making an attempt to fix it? As the old saying almost goes.

“We respect our mentor, producer [and Big Hit founder] Bang Si-Hyuk who has continued to show us a vision for our future from even before [our] debut and has helped us [to] form our perspective of the world and music”, say the band in a statement. “With Big Hit Entertainment’s support, we’ll continue to strive to give our best for fans all around the world”.

Big Hit adds: “It is our philosophy that we should cater the best to artists who [are] achieving an unprecedented global success. After [a] thorough discussion with [the] seven members of BTS, we decided to renew the contract before the world tour to ensure more stable, long-term activities”.

That world tour is currently in action, with the band making their way through Europe. They played two shows at London’s O2 Arena earlier this month.
