The new album of BTS is raging in the world music market. BTS was ranked # 90 on the UK singles chart with his new song ‘DNA’ on the 23rd. BTS was ranked # 13 in Sweden, # 18 in Belgium, # 19 in Ireland (IRMA), # 56 in Italy, # 57 in Germany and # 57 in Germany Album charts.
While BTS landing in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 is an accomplishment in and of itself, if the band can simultaneously score an entry on the Hot 100, it will make them only the second K-pop act to land a Korean-language song on the singles chart. To date, only PSY, Wonder Girls and CL have landed songs on the ranking, with the latter two’s entries in English. BTS’ “Spring Day” debuted at No. 15 on Billboard‘s Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart earlier this year, the closest Korean-language song to make it onto the Hot 100 until Blackpink’s “As If It’s Your Last” hit No. 13 this summer.
