"We are infinitely thankful for ARMYs everywhere." 

BTS broke yet another record recently. Their 2nd full album, 'WINGS,' entered at No. 26 on U.S. Billboard Top 200 chart, making BTS the most successful K-Pop group on the Billboard chart and second-best for an Asian group.

The group expressed their gratitude during a recent interview with OSEN. Rap Monster commented, "The fact that we broke a record as a Korean group on one of the two main charts of Billboard -- no matter how many times someone tells us, it is something that doesn't feel real...We are infinitely thankful for ARMYs everywhere who listen and watch us, move their hearts, and respond to us." 

SUGA added, "It feels surreal to be on the Billboard chart that I had only dreamed of. It is not because we did well but because our fans gave us a lot of affection. I want to thank our fans."

But Suga, we give you a lot of affection BECAUSE you're doing so well! But I love that they're still so humble :)

'Second best for an Asian group'Does anyone know who the other group is?I need to go and listen to them :)

YueYuu lemony_peaches Thursday, October 20, 2016

Probably Big Bang, Exo or SNSD I'd guess

It's definitely a non K-Pop group. Because the article also says that BTS is the most successful K-Pop group on the billboard charts. Most successful K-Pop group but second best Asian group. So I'm thinking either J-Pop or C-Pop. Maybe AKB48?

oh yeah, that makes sense, I didn't read correctly! :)

Dasssss right as an international fan I'm thankful for their acknowledgment cos most international fans are dedicated af but international fans are also under appreciated. I'm just as much of a fan as their Korean fans if not more because korean isn't my native language but it's made me start learning just to be able to communicate with them somehow & also since I can't go to their shows/concerts I buy up as much merch & albums as I can but it does feels good knowing that they know that it was the international fans who helped them achieve all this success and got them onto Billboard

Anyone know who the best charting Asian group on Billboard was?

MiraNa BakaKaori Wednesday, October 19, 2016

i think it was Charice Pempengco. in 2010 she was in top 10 mostly thanks to attention she gained after Oprah highly prised her on her show.
