South Korean idol groups Bangtan Boys (BTS) and Twice have respectively topped the music and album charts for 2016, said an industry association said on Wednesday.
The Korea Music Content Industry Association (KMCIA), which operates the Gaon charts, said TWICE’s single “Cheer Up” and BTS’ latest LP “Wings” hit the top spot on Gaon’s 2016 Digital Chart and Album Chart based on sales accumulated from January to November.
“The sales amount of the Chinese and Korean versions of “EX’ACT” adds up to more than 800,000, but since the index only counts individual albums, BTS’ ‘Wings,’ which sold over 710,000, won first place,” the KMCIA said.
Congratulations TWICE and BTS!
