BTS is taking over the world one step at a time, and their latest move is an invitation from the Recording Academy to join its Class of 2019 and become members. Bang Si-Hyuk, the CEO and Executive Producer of the septet's label Big Hit Entertainment, was also offered a membership to the coveted Academy.

"The invitation is a reflection of their numerable contributions to music, as they now join the ranks of other incredible music creators in the opportunity to help keep music in schools and introduce its power to young people everywhere," reads a press release. "Bang Si-Hyuk will be joining the Academy as a Professional member, which is the membership type for music executives, managers, publicists, agents, and other team members that work to support music creators."

Though the Korean group presented at the 2019 GRAMMY Awards, they weren't nominated for any golden gramophones. We have a feeling that won't be the case when the nominees for next year are revealed.

For now, BTS are busy wrapping up the European leg of their LOVE YOURSELF: SPEAK YOURSELF world tour before heading to Japan to finish out their remaining dates in July.
