Japanese boy band asks fans to buy their CD, implying to beat BTS on Oricon Chart

USER CONTENT

Apparently, it appears that BTS' immense popularity Japan has become a threat to local Japanese boy bands

On July 17, it was reported that Kis-My-Ft2, one of Johnny's Associates' boy bands has shown up at various CD retailer stores and begged their fans to buy their latest single 'HANDS UP'. While the members of the said band did not mention BTS directly, they did mention how their competitor (BTS) is "strong" and that they wanted to "win".

This is due to BTS' latest Japanese single 'Lights/Boy With Luv' continues to sell immensely, despite being in its second week of sales. It was reported that the fans of Kis-My-Ft2 began bulk buying the CDs immensely in order to prevent BTS from spending another week on top of the chart. 

While Kis-My-Ft2 and their fans may succeed in preventing BTS' from spending their second week on top of the chart by selling approximately 190,000 copies, BTS' came in a close second by selling approximately 130,000 copies, and selling 750,000 in total.

Lmao I was at both Tsutaya and Tower Records today to pick up some CDs, and Kisumai's racks were pretty empty. BTS is doing well, and Kisumai is also doing pretty well, so don't stir shit and please go back to writing your K-pop dramas.

stfu....you just throw shadow on a hard working japanese band to feed your daily toxicness standards... what do you expect from this articles? do you expect ARMYs and Oreashizoku (Kis-My-Ft2 fandom) to jump at eachother throats?
