    Both domestically and internationally?

    Imo: I did expect it to do better than BwL in the US somehow because it seemed that CR is finally doing their job but doing this well globally and especially in SK and Japan? Nah.

    Japan is probs the biggest surprise to me, I did expect it to do decently in the Korea because it's still BTS (tho I didn't expect total domination either), but I didn't expect it to do so well in Japan that it even outdoes their Japanese releases

    no i didn’t
    wap was a monster so i was expected a 2 or 3 on the hot 100 with a free fall the next week. this kind of longevity is a new territory for us...
    in korea i was expecting it to do better than on. a pak seemed like a faraway dream with ssak3 going crazy on the charts but it surprised us once again :waterr:

    Japan was quite unpredictable but considering that japan loves disco-pop songs, im no longer surprised. I wonder if it will top hot 100 of japan without any physical releases?

    No.
    I was honestly expecting it to perform similar to ON. Probably because I'm a pessimist. :oops:

    Nope... it is EXCEEDING EXPEXCTATIONS. I mean I thought it will perform just stlightly better than BWL... And sure it did well in the US Korea Japan and Asia but its performance in the European Market is astounding! I mean its still climbing charts in some countries. And its looking like it has longevity :omgr::lover1:

    Didn’t think they would break the WAP wall
    Since they didn’t promote in SK I didn’t think it’d chart this well and win so many show awards

    Kings exceed expectations even among us fans

    Nope, i expected maybe a CAK/RAK in korea, but not 400 PAKs. I expected #2 on BB after wap and i also didn't think it would do so well in japan. The song is a worldwide hit:eek:

    I did expect it to do good and break some records in its first week.

    I only didn't expect it to still keep breaking records left and right after almost a month in.

    The thought of getting #1 on hot100 was on my mind considering CRs good strategy and first day massacre of dynamite. But korea and japan? Who would have thought. GP is eating up dynamite, peaking after a month is unheard of for idol groups and this kind of stability is only shown by national hits.

    I was hopeful for Hot 100 bc at last... CR was moving their ass...
    SK and JP were a surprise, Europe too, especially now it's showing signs of longevity.
