Korea has run out of records to break so BTS have had to go to Japan!
18 May 2017 - 10:31 AM  UPDATED 18 May 2017 - 10:33 AM

Another week and another record broken by BTS!

Following the release of the Japanese version of "Blood, Sweat, & Tears" last week, BTS have managed to hit No.1 on Japan's Oricon Weekly chart by selling a whopping 238,795 copies of their new single. Not only is this another chart-topping Japanese single for BTS, this also means that BTS are now the fastest foreign group to hit over 200,000 album sales on the Oricon Weekly chart as they've only debuted in Japan less than 3 years ago.

Notably, "Blood, Sweat, & Tears" has managed to almost double the sales numbers of their previous Japanese single "Run," which was released last March and sold "only" 124,000 copies.


Congrats to BTS on yet another milestone!
