BTS' Japanese single "Blood, Sweat, and Tears" topped the Oricon chart and it has been certified "Platinum"!

According to the RIAJ, or Recording Industry Association of Japan, an album needs to sell over 250,000 copies to be certified "Platinum" and below that is the "Gold" certification, meaning that an album needs to sell over 100,000 copies. The RIAJ website was recently updated showing that "Blood, Sweat, and Tears" was certified Platinum! 

It's rare for a Kpop artist to achieve Platinum in Japan and when they do, it can take many months to achieve it. However, for BTS, they achieved it in just a few weeks! It appears their popularity is rapidly rising in Japan as well.

I watched some recent video where they were learning japanese, specially Jimin. I really hope BTS will release original japanese songs next time. I love this language.

HarryBJ Loyalty Sunday, June 18, 2017

They already have one original Japanese song

nicnic90 HarryBJ Sunday, June 18, 2017

It's actually six original songs, not including intros, across their 2 japanese albums Wake Up and Youth. Personally enjoyed 'the stars' the most.

They have... My favorite one is "Good day" ^^

this is a pretty good achievement and will earn them more cash than their album sales in Korea!

Unknown_2014 hiroonakamura Sunday, June 18, 2017

Why will earn more? They just sold out 750,000 copies of korean version. While 250,000 for japanese version, but still 250,000 is a big number already in japan

hiroonakamura Unknown_2014 Sunday, June 18, 2017

because the contracts are different for the korean market as opposed to going outside of korea. In korea, most of the income from albums that are sold go to the label and distributor. Not always, but most of the times. Outside of Korea you have a different distributor and sometimes even a different label that helps getting deals and such - so the contracts are usually more in favor of the artists as well as the label (in regards to the distributor). Both the label and the artists earn more from one japanese album sales than one korean album sale.

Is it weird that I stan them even though I know nothing about them??? When Dope came out and I saw the music video I was all 0.0 and then I saw their live stages and how much fucking pure charisma and energy they have and I was like <3_<3 Seriously one of the hardest working performers of our generation. Many groups can become famous by having the luck of a good production, but then they fall flat by losing energy for their actual lives. But with BTS you can really tell how much work goes into their stages, instead of losing energy over time it's like they just get even better???? And they're getting rewarded for it through global recognition. I genuinely hope that they will be the first kpop group to release an American single and succeed. If anyone can break into the American market it's them.

LveKimTae Nutelladela Sunday, June 18, 2017

BTS have no plans whatsoever to do an American single. They've said in an interview before that they're not targeting America as their main market. They never were targeting America.

teleri Nutelladela Sunday, June 18, 2017

They have already 'broke' into the American market. They simply aren't 'targeting' the US & certainly don't want to Westernize their music or get involved with American labels. They've enough fans here to sell out concerts whenever they do them, & to chart songs.

Good job boys, keep doing what your doing.

HarryBJ Sunday, June 18, 2017

This is for all BTS haters
