BTS are aiming high.

And why the heck not? Theyre basically on course for world domination, so they might as well dream big.

Although their dreams arent actually that big, theyre pretty damn doable, as the septets aspirations are to get number ones on the Billboard charts.

Surely the Army can make that happen.

When asked about their dreams, RM revealed that the group hoped to take the coveted top spot: To be honest, weve said amongst ourselves that wed like to try and reach No. 1 on the Billboard 200 this time.

Consider it done, the Army cries.

Currently Post Malone is at the top of the top 200, while Childish Gambino and This Is America sits at the top of the hot 100.

RM continued: Also, we made it to No. 28 on Billboards Hot 100 last time, so weve said to each other that we want to make it to the top 10 this time. If we reach the top 10, itll be extremely competitive, because all of the songs that are famous all over the world will be there. Someday, we hope to be No. 1 on the Hot 100.

And theyre not stopping there, now they want to take in a global arena tour.

Suga added to Soompi: We also want to do a stadium tour, and we want to become one of the most influential singers all over the world. Because [these dreams] are so hard to achieve, its not easy to say them out loud – but now that weve said them out loud, we might as well try to reach them.

Sadly though, success like theirs often goes hand in hand with the darker side of fame.

Jimin was recently the victim of a death threat online.

Before the group flew to the US on 14 May, a person posted on the social network Curious Cat threatening to kill Jimin when BTS hold their concert in Texas on 16 September this year.

Im going to shoot Park Jimin with a Glock 19 in Fort Worth on September 16 while he signs Serendipity. Its going to be fun seeing his lifeless body hit the floor [sic].

Hes been alive way too long and always getting in the way. Why Im telling you this? Because nothing can happen to me on cc, ask the armys getting racist ccs for being n****s. the threat read.

But Jimin went on to reassure fans that hes OK in a press conference.

After the incident last year, it was my second time hearing this kind of news, so I was a bit flustered, he said.

But I think that the fans were more worried than I was. Personally, there were so many people waiting for me that I didnt have the time or energy to be swayed by such words.

Our staff take good care of us, so I dont think that theres any need for [our fans] to worry.
