Social media is a massive part of K-pop these days, and one way to measure a group's popularity is how often they come up as hashtags on platforms such as Twitter.
Twitter Korea states that on average, "hashtags are used approx. 125 million times a day around the world. Among all Korea-related tweets, the top five consist of keywords related to BTS and GOT7."
Coming in at No.1 was BTS' Billboard Music Award-related hashtag #BTSBBMAs, followed by #GOT7, #BTS (written in Korean), #GOT7 (written in Korean), and #JIMIN (one of the dancing kings in BTS).
Hats off to BTS and GOT7 for dominating the Twitter-sphere in Korea!
