All seven members were recently chosen as GQ Korea’s Men of the Year 2016 which is not the case for most idol groups. The magazine is said to be recognizing the group’s amazing accomplishments this year from cultural, musical to popularity awards in and out of Korea. They have also remained on top of the Billboard’s World Album chart for 16 weeks.
It looks like BTS is going to stay longer on Billboard too as they have once again, took the first place on Billboard’s Social 50 chart!
They also took the fifth place on the World Albums Chart. YG’s BLACKPINK is the only other Korean artist who also ranked on both Billboard charts this week as #46 on the Social 50 chart and #8 on World Albums Chart.
We wish to see more amazing K-pop artists on the international charts soon!
