The two members held their live broadcast back to back starting yesterday. Jimin was the first to log on to the app and have a 32 min stream to communicate with fans after his birthday celebration, while Suga logged on the following day and played guitar for his fans.
One netizen shared a capture of the number of viewers who logged in for the live stream as other Korean netizens were amazed by BTS's popularity.
In just 30 minutes, Jimin was able to gather 9 million viewers worldwide, while Suga was able to gather close to 8 million viewers.
The time the two members streamed live was when people would still be in school and work. It would also be in the middle of the night for fans overseas since Suga streamed live at 5 PM in Korea and 4 AM on the East Coast in the United States.
