More of BTS achievements this week (which hasn't been reported in allkpop, yet)


1) BTS got double platinum in Japan for fake love/airplane pt 2 in just one month. RIAJ said the singles sold more than 500,000 now.

2) Dope mv reached 400 million views today

3) Love yourself: answer stays at no 1 on billboard world album chart. (tear no.3, Her no.4 and face yourself no. 9)

4) Love yourself: answer has surpassed 1 million sales at hanteo chart. BTS is the only artist in hanteo history to sell over 1 million copies of an INDIVIDUAL album (not combining repackage album or other language)

5) BTS has become a pure triple million seller at hanteo as Tear and Her also passed the 1 million mark.


Cheers all!

but you dont care, you arent a fan, youre just another pathetic fake army, who wants to seem cool with making a hype over someone famous...such fake armies are the first ones to leave their fanbase the moment someone else becomes more famous...

For yikes and cringe, photograph your face and make an emoji of it.

No sorry, jokes aside, seriously, do you have nothing better to do than to hate/troll under every BTS related article? If you don't like them, why waste your time on them? Would save you a lot of bitterness when you just concentrated on your own faves and moved on. How old are you even?
