BTS and TWICE take over Oricon charts despite current political storm

(Bangtan Boys) BTS, TWICE
Despite a turbulent political situation between Korea and Japan, BTS and TWICE are still slaying charts.

BTS' 'Fake Love/Airplane Pt. 2' ranked #1 on Oricon's Weekly Singles Chart with 454,829 points for the week of November 5th-11th. They're the first ever non-Japanese artist to hit over 400,000 points on the first day.


TWICE's 6th mini-album 'YES or YES' ranked #1 for the Oricon Weekly Album Chart, selling over 33,000 copies in one day. It's a pretty big feat considering that it's not a Japanese release, but a Korean one. 

Congratulations to TWICE and BTS.

So happy knowing general public there are understanding ! My boys deserves this, especially among all the hatred they are receiving. In love with J-Armys.


Congrats to Twice and Onces as well! Not a Once, but they are Queens indeed! Their hardwork really pays off.

Twice has made umpteen visits to Japan.

Why wouldn't they be number 1.

There is no correlation between number of visits and number 1. If people don't like your music, you can make visits till your face turn blue doesn't mean anyone will buy your stuff.
