BTS is kicking off the new year with a bang by setting new records.
On January 8th, BTS’s repackaged album Love Yourself: Answer placed 59th on the ‘Billboard Top 200’ list. The album has jumped 18 rankings from the previous week’s ranking of No. 77. In addition, BTS has been maintaining No.1 for 78 weeks on the ‘Social 50’ and No.3 on ‘Top Artists’ on the Billboard charts.
BTS’s popularity has even entered politics. On January 9th, BTS was announced to be a candidate to perform in North Korea for September 2019. Whether BTS will be able to schedule a performance in North Korea will be determined by various factors like North and South Korean relations, BTS scheduling and others. If BTS does end up performing in North Korea, this will go into the history books.
