Well a lot of people started calling them flops after Bling Bling and Bday which were really low in the charts and many people thought they wouldn't be able to go back up and would YG's only flop so I was refering to that.

Let's all be real, in terms of music quality IKON saved 2018. Regardless of the fandom power of BP and BTS. Period.

It's not every year kpop artists, especially non-big 3 groups get obscene number of records and firsts.

Everything was a surprise for bout BTS and ARMYs.

With the way Kpop fans talk about BTS' songs you'd think it wouldn't even be mentioned as a best song by the Korean public, but there they are. ✨


Also BTS' success was super unexpected, even with last year's success, both in Korea and abroad.

They were not.

"Apart from "Fake Love", other songs by BTS such as "Idol" and "DNA" were also popular, giving BTS a total of 51 votes as the artist with the highest number of songs on the list."

All of their song in this list have a total of 51
