    OP don’t forget 02 arena doesn’t rent to just anybody who they’re not sure can fill it out :yesr: and also they got a show at Zoggo Dome in Amsterdam, the same arena that Ariana, JB, 1D and many other major pop stars do gigs at

    They're a Kpop group with a massive and dedicated worldwide fandom, yes. Do people outside the niche care? Not really lol. Have they heard of them? Some probably have. It's a similar situation with country artist in America. They sellout stadiums and get number 1 hits too. Does anyone outside that market care though? Nope. Have people heard of them? Maybe 1 or 2.

    A worldwide act would be artists like Beyonce or the Beatles. Actors are better suited for the "world" title because they have more influence. Artists might get their songs known but, rarely, can people identify the faces unless they're really into celebrity gossip.

    Top 10 albums on official national charts in 13 countries with Tear, besides Korea (compared to 3 with Her). Canada, US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Norway, Japan, Estonia, Sweden, Switzerland, Ireland, Netherlands and Belgium.




    But yeah no, they're flops and everything they've ever achieved is super easy and something everyone could do if they just wanted.

    I know! They said only a certain other group was big outside of Korea. I was dumbfounded.

    You do realise that we don’t care about titles ? This title especially was never talked about or even mentionned. Every other titles they received came from the medias (k and western, french, uk, american, german, korean, japanese, chinese and critics).

    BTS is the biggest boy band atm. Worldwide act ? We’ll talk about it in a few years.

    The fandom is already aware that they aren’t mainstream, but the fanbase grows every cb and with it their exposure. Just having their adds during major sport events is big for a kpop act.

    They broke any expectations people had. And honestly I see BTS MVs and hear their songs on the biggest radio station and music channel in France. They couldn’t play the songs but were aware of them so asked us to contact BH bcs of a label issue (french laws are complicated) to be able to play their songs.

    People say they are all fandom achievements

    But THEY are in the scene and they are just STARTING

    To be honest after reading all the OPs stats yeah they are pretty global, there are western acts that wish they had some of those stats. The world tour stat is kind of the most insane going to Europe doing arenas and selling them out.

    Yeah it's actually Kmedia that gave them the name 'worldwide group' or 'global group', and said they aren't just a kpop/idol group. I think it's already been at least half a year since they started calling them that. It's not something the fandom just came up with. Wish people would stop saying we did.
