[Article] 170214 [Oh! Sen Focus] Growing BTS, their accomplishment itself is a new record



The rebellious boys who sang about the inconsistent and irrational society. They grew up as young me and talked about the burning passion of youths and it looks like they are now mature enough to comfort the listeners. This is the story of group BTS who is growing limitlessly.

The group continuously talked about the reality in the eyes of peers even before their debut and listeners related to their songs. This was the decisive factor. They received support and responses for expressing the stories they wanted to talk about through music and their fandom united stronger and grew bigger during this process.

Before we knew, the teenage boys grew up as young men who can now sing about "youth" and their fandom who watched and support them throughout this process grew solid and built a strong bond. This could be the secret behind their successful "growth".

Now, the group's accomplishment itself is a new record.

On the 13th, BTS released "WINGS Extension: You Never Walk Alone" and swept No. 1 spots on 8 online Korean music sites with their title track "Spring Day" and they also proved their popularity by lining the chart with songs from their new album. Even their album sales volume is peerless.

It's been a long time since they expanded their ground beyond Korea. The group entered US iTunes Song Chart at No. 8 with the title track "Spring Day". PSY was the first Korean artist to debut at No. 1 with "Gangnam Style" on US iTunes Song Chart back in 2012.

BTS did not only enter their title track "Spring Day" on US iTunes Chart. Right after the release of their album to until today, "Not Today" debuted at No. 11, "A Supplementary Story: You Never Walk Alone" at No. 20, and "Outro: WINGS" at No. 30.

Moreover, as of the 13th 4PM (KST), their title track "Spring Day" topped the iTunes Top Song Chart in Brunei, Finland, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Lithuania, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. "WINGS Extensio
n: You Never Walk Alone" topped the iTunes Top Album Chart in Armenia, Brunei, Finland, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.

BTS also shattered the music video views record. In just 26 hours and 38 minutes since the music video of BTS's new song "Spring Day" was released on BigHit Entertainment's official Youtube channel on the 13th 12AM (KST), the view received 10,219,692 views and surpassed 10 million views. They are the fastest KPOP group (both female and male) to set this record.

As at 14th 7AM, "Spring Day" music video is the No.1 most watched video in 24 hours on Youtube.

As a matter of fact, the reasons behind why BTS is an intimidating group is increasing endlessly. BTS is still focusing on "youth" for now, but as they grow physically and mentally the topics and subjects they could talk about will diversify. We wonder how far they would "grow".
