There is hardly anyone who does not know BTS. The global success they have become is known to all, and there is no doubt that BTS net worth is currently in the multi-millions. Together, they have taken over the music industry globally, especially with their all-English track, Dynamite which topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart three weeks. Today, they continue to work on albums to help them stay at the top of the charts.
There is no denying that success brings along with it an increasing net worth. As per reports published by CelebrityNetWorth, BTS earned an astounding $170 million from its global stadium tour in 2019. This is the highest amount that any band has pulled in except America’s Metallica. Also, the two albums released by BTS in 2020, BE and Map of the Soul: 7, virtual “untact” concerts, countless brand deals, documentaries, tourism endorsements, and merchandise helped them keep their net worth up.
Last year’s Big Hit Entertainment’s IPO launch further made BTS net worth of each member increased by $8 million (approx). As per the latest Business Insider report, the total BTS net worth is at around $3.6 billion.
