OMG! BTS's 2nd full album 'WINGS' is currently topping main iTunes album charts in numerous countries! 



Many K-Pop albums see great results on iTunes charts in the K-Pop genre, the hip-hop genre, and other specified genres, but its more difficult for them to end up on the overall album rankings charts in countries worldwide. 


According to reports, 'WINGS' has taken the #1 spot on iTunes's overall album charts in 27 different countries, including the U.S, Brazil, Chile, Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong, Ireland, Laos, Malaysia, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Sweden, Taiwan, Turkey, Brunei, and more!


What an incredible feat! Congratulations, both BTS and ARMY!

K-armys did good in korean music sites, I-armys did good in international music sites, bangtan did good in making a great album. This is how we called Teamwork Makes The Dream Works.

Good for them!  But I can't be the only one puzzled by the level of their success.  As much as fans don't like to admit it, there is really nothing unique about any one kpop group.  Kpop is so formulaic; groups usually achieve success either because their company is adept at the business of marketing, because a song goes viral, or because a group member makes headlines for other activities such as a drama role or variety show appearance.  The fact that BTS achieved such success without meeting a single one of these three conditions is both bizarre and impressive.

I would have to disagree, bts has an appeal different from the "carbon copy" groups I believe you are referring to. Their style differs in that they create their own music that isn't from some pop sample of a famous producer. they have a fresher, more original appeal. I dont stan them, but I am saying this because they are infact more unique than other formulaic groups.

The difference between BTS and other group is that they create their own music. They don't have a company that has unlimited flow of money. They are not really involved in many variety shows and drama (well they just started appearing on those recently). But the most attractive factor about them is that they really don't follow what is happening around them, they create their own rule.

I'd have to disagree with you on that one. There are certain kpop groups that have found their "own," unique sound. Groups like INFINITE, BIG BANG, SHINee and such have a certain sound associated with them; the same goes for BTS. I think they've established their sound since the beginning of HYYH or even Skool luv affair. It may not be apparent when you only listen to their title songs, but you'll hear it in the others in the album. WINGS perfectly gives you that BTS sound and successfully lets you listen to their unique sound as a group and as individuals. But I guess what draws me towards BTS most are their poetic lyrics that go beyond love (mostly thanks to the rapper line (especially my main boy Suga))

I agree with you. I think the secret to BTS random success is timing. They came out right when then korean hip hop scene was exploding thanks the SMTM. It was also a time when every boy group was trying to be EXO. So in the sea of EXO and EXO knockoffs BTS suddenly appeared giving that korean hip-hop vibe with underground rappers to boot! And now, EXO is still big, but every boy group is trying to be BTS (*cough* hard carry)

you're 100% right. timing is a huge part of the reason. they also lucked out a bit when bap went on hiatus

There is so much group xho wrote their songe now, it's not an argument anymore. The only idol who could've said that was BIGBANG. If this is your only reason to stan your would be crazy about Seventeen, who wrote, compose and even produce their albums. BTS have honestly nothing special, they are not bad but overrated

are you good? you do know that rap monster, suga and jhope composed, produced AND wrote the songs in the album? do your research mate. they're definitely not overrated. They have something unique in their voices making them completely different from other groups, which made me a big fan of their music.

Uhm BTS write, compose almost every songs in their album, they also produce their own music. They are doing that ever since they debuted. And u do know BTS always have the most tracks in their album, 9-10 for mini albums (while others only have 6 w/ instrumentals) , 14-15 for full albums (while others only have 9).. They are very unique compared to others. They write their own music, their lyrics are always deep, meaningful & relatable, they write about dreams, loneliness, mental health, suicide, their hometown, temptations etc., they don't only talk about love w/c other groups always does. But i guess u won't know about bts music coz u never listened to their whole discography. One more thing, they create their own CONTENTS, that's why fans feel MORE CLOSE to them.

Many groups do the same. I know groups that compose every song on their album, produce their own music, have many songs on their albums. I also know groups that write their own music and write their own lyrics. BTS aren't the only one. You might only be listening to BTS's whole discography but not other groups which is where your fault may be.

I can't agree with you on that one. There are many groups who created their own rule, dating back from 1st and 2nd generation...

I don't care about quantity I care about quality even if they have 45 songs composed by them if they buy sample like "Boy in Love" (yes because they buy sample sometimes you know, anyway every artist do that but don't forget that). Army are all the same it's amazing, yes I listen to BTS's songs and yes they are overrated. I don't said they were bad but they are not special their songs are the classic pop song that you can hear since 2000 in every country, calm verse and powerfull chorus with classic lyrics about love it's not special at all. And again no nowaday group wrote their songs, especially boygrups even SHINee wrote their songs now, it's nothing new, the first kpop group from 2nd gen who begin to wrote lyrics and compose were BB that was special at that time but now when you see a rookie group like SEVENtEEn writing and composing and producing their debut album it's nothing special. Again i don't say BTS are bad but army are overratig them.
