BTS: The K-Pop Sensation That Proves Music Transcends Language

If there was ever a doubt that music transcends language – there’s not a chance for that now.

I wanted to write this article in hopes that it not only educates whoever’s reading about Scoliosis and normalizes it, especially during the month of June (Scoliosis Awareness Month), but that it also helps you realize that it’s normal in itself to be different.
