Hello everyone, and welcome to Honey’s Anime! We are here with a wonderful interview we conducted with the author of BTS: Blood, Sweat & Tears, Tamar Herman. BTS: Blood, Sweat & Tears is a biography of the global phenomenon K-Pop group, BTS. We read through the biography and got to learn more about the group and their rise to almost immediate fame. In BTS: Blood, Sweat & Tears, BTS’s success has matched that of the very influential, globally famous, and extremely talented band, The Beatles.
We got to ask some questions for Tamar Herman to get to know her a little better and also about her journey working on this project, as she has worked with many media outlets as a writer, editor, and consultant. Tamar specializes in K-pop, international music, all things fandom, and changes in media in the 21st century that she has been covering BTS’s career throughout their years together. Hailed as a K-pop enthusiast and expert, Tamar has written a book about BTS to help shed light on the wonderful group of talented men and their inspirational story of life together and as individuals themselves.
So, without further ado, we present you with Tamar’s answers to our burning questions. We hope you enjoy it!
