BTS surpassed Ariana Grande and remained on Billboard Social 50 chart for 18 weeks. This is the longest period recorded since the establishment of the chart. Also, they had the most number of viewers (about 18000 viewers) during the Billboard live interview in New York that broadcasted before their Newark show.
Fueled by the force, BTS is capturing the global celebrities as well. Pop star Charlie Puth tweeted, "I really like BTS's music" on the 26th. Charlie Puth remained No. 1 on Billboard single chart with "See you again" in 2015 for 12 weeks. Child actress Kylie Rogers who is best known for her role in "Fathers and Daughters" tweeted, "One week til the #BTS concert!!!! ". The actress could not hide her excitement. It was revealed that actor Russell Crowe who plays the role of her father in the movie had bought the ticket for her.
BTS is also realizing their popularity after their interview with various medias like New York Times, FOX, and iHeartradio. It's been evaluated that the scenes created by BTS are signals that show KPOP is not just a nonmainstream culture enjoyed by a few manias but it's now sinking into the public.
