The cover shows the eight men, all dapper in tailored suits as they stare at the camera. Chairman Bang Si Hyuk stands in the center as the BTS supergroup surrounds him. The sprawling quote reads, “South Korea’s HYBE is reinventing the music industry (with a little help from BTS!)”, referring to the millions of dollars in profits the group has brought in company that started humbly.

This is BTS’s third appearance on the popular cover. They debuted on TIME in 2018 where they were crowned as Next Generation Leaders. A few years later, BTS was named 2020 TIME’s Artist of the Year. Now, making another TIME-ly comeback, the boys have been credited for their small business success as HYBE reinvents itself to be the one of the 100 most influential companies worldwide.
