BTS vs ONE DIRECTION

Since One Direction’s split in 2015, who are American teens going to fangirl/boy over? For now, at least is Korea’s BTS and Latin America’s CNCO. They’re already cruising at 30,000 feet, and they’ve respectively got a global ARMY fandom and an entire continent behind them to take them even further.

Music

BTS always tries to heal their fans through their music as their new album 'BE' talks about life in quarantine. On the other hand, 1D's songs were mostly of the teen-pop genre revolving around the themes like the teen-love story.

Music Videos

Coming to the music videos, we cannot say that anyone does it better than BTS. Each of their video, the concept, and the set is pretty enough to blow our minds away. 1D also released good music videos but BTS' videos are on the next level.

Performance

1D is famous for its amazing performances but the members did not use to dance. They just sing while, BTS pulls off its extremely hard choreography with live singing. The members never miss a beat or do less in their singing.

Fanbase

ARMY, they'll defend the K-pop band and each member against haters and they especially stand by their idols side come rain come shine. Then, we have Directioners. They support the boys' solo works just as passionately as they would for the boyband as a collective unit.

VOCAL BATTLE LIVE

One Direction might be better, at least they are better live. Though BTS’s vocal line is also made of great singers, One Direction are mostly vocal focused.

BTS PROS

Watch BTS’s MMA 2019 performance, that’s probably one of the best things EVER done by any pop artist, and just for a single award ceremony. So yeah, obviously BTS, unless you hate seeing people dancing. The only part where One Direction is better is live vocals, but let's trade that 50 times against the incredible performances that BTS can pull out, but that's purely subjective. But still, BTS can also sing really well when they don't have to throw all their breath in a choreography.

ONE DIRECTION PROS

One Direction is completely filled with wonderful vocalists of different ranges and tones. Hell, they can blow off the roofs with their vocals. We have Harry who has a really nice vocal colour and technique, Louis who has a honey tone and amazing technique, Liam who has a good timbre voice, Zayn who is such a high-range vocalist with R&B-styled voice and Niall who has a well-developed and jolly voice. Really, all the vocalists are very nice and certainly one of the best out there. Their best songs are Drag Me Down, Little Things and Story of my Life through which their vocals shine a lot. And also they write pretty well. Louis is a really nice lyricist.
