BTS has been breaking records in Korea and all over the world as they rise higher and higher! Here are some of the records that the seven-member group has set!
First K-pop artists to win a Billboard Music Award
BTS wasn’t the first K-Pop act to be nominated for this award, but they were the first ones to go from nominee to winner. BTS beat out Selena Gomez and repeat winner Justin Bieber to win “Top Social Artist” in the 2017 Billboard Music Award.
First K-pop group to perform at a US awards show
BTS made history when they became the first K-Pop group to perform at the American Music Awards. The moment their “DNA” began, BTS earned bragging rights as the first K-Pop group to perform on an American awards show.
First K-Pop group to go gold
BTS became the first K-Pop group to be certified gold by the RIAA when their “MIC Drop” remix moved more than 500,000 equivalent units between digital downloads and audio and video streaming.
Fastest K-Pop group to hit 10 million YouTube views on a music video
The “Blood Sweat & Tears” music video hit 10 million views in only 41 hours. In 2017, “Spring Day” beat this record by hitting 10 million views in 26 hours! And “Not Today” broke this record a third time when it hit 20 million views in less than 72 hours.
Broke three world records with “Boy With Luv” featuring Halsey
BTS’ “Boy With Luv” featuring Halsey has now been recognized by the Guinness World Records for “most viewed YouTube video in 24 hours,” “most viewed YouTube music video in 24 hours,” and “most viewed YouTube music video in 24 hours by a K-pop group.”
