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!
