While the pandemic and its scare have wreaked havoc across the globe, it hasn’t been all that bad a year after all for Korean boy band BTS. Precisely five months after their second music video, “DNA” rocked the charts, the South-Korean boy band is on a lucky streak again -- their latest release “Boy With Luv” crossed 950 million views on YouTube on Sept. 21.

The music video, “Boy With Luv” cemented BTS’s spot as the fastest and the only Korean boy group music video ever to touch 950 million views on YouTube. The seven-member band is hitting all the right notes on TikTok too, as they are the most-followed Korean stars (with 20 million followers) on the viral short-video sharing platform.  The girl group, BLACKPINK comes a close second with a followership of 17.7 million on the app.

In other news, what’s even impressive to note is that while the band is doing really well for itself; a volley of members seems to be breaking milestones, with independent tracks too.

Jungkook was on a roll earlier this week, after rising to the top spot as the only male K-pop idol to have two of his tracks “My Time” and “Euphoria” listed on the Billboard World Digital Song Sales chart. The tracks in question are reportedly the longest-charting songs by a K-pop idol, 27 and 31 weeks, respectively. “Euphoria” found stiff competition with fellow bandmate Jimin’s “Filter”, in terms of being the longest-charting track.

While Jungkook’s latest track might be the most-streamed, Jimin’s latest feat has catapulted his status to be the first Korean soloist. With (two viral songs under his belt) to have touched the 100 million milestones Spotify, shortly after the Serendipity Full Length Edition broke this huge number, there’s clearly no looking back for this young star.

While things are certainly looking up for the BTS individually and as a whole, the band released a rather uplifting note to its fans at Korea’s Youth Day ceremony.  “We appreciate even more our fans and our members who have strongly united together during the moments we wanted to give up or fall behind and become towers of strength to each other over the past 10 years,” as mentioned in a media report.
