The sensational K-Pop boy band BTS or Bangtan Boys is known for their electrifying and all-out performances and with their recent appearance at Busan’s One Asia Festival, the seven-member boy group has given testament to their reputation.
The October 23 Busan concert made BTS fans worry as one of its members, Kim Seok Jin or popularly known to his fans as Jin, appeared to have been injured during the impressive performance of their hit single Blood Sweat & Tears.
While the boys perform with grace and energy that sent the fans into a frenzy, many noticed that Jin was grabbing his ear and looking pained. Fans were quick to speculate that he had hurt himself by the fireworks or the earpiece might have malfunctioned and took to Twitter to express their worry.
Although no official announcement has been made by the K-Pop star or Big Hit Entertainment yet, it seems fans need not to worry especially since BTS has been making history recently.
According to Billboard, the septet K-Pop superstars continue their chart dominance by breaking sales and chart records in America and Canada. Their second album, Wings, is earning the boys further success by spending two weeks on the Billboard 200 making them the first K-Pop act to have an entry chart for more than a week.
Wings has also set a new US record for highest-charting and best-selling K-Pop album debuting at No. 26 on the Billboard 200 chart, overtaking previous K-Pop chart toppers 2NE1, EXO and G-Dragon. It has recently landed on the No. 1 spot of Billboard Social 50 according to a report. The BTS fever has also reached Canada, as Wings hits No.19 on the Canadian Albums chart.
Apart from BTS’ single Blood Sweat & Tears MV hitting milestones with record-breaking views in YouTube amassing 30 million views and counting, the phenomenal single is conquering Canada with a No. 68 debut on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 this week further indicating a large interest in the K-Pop group in the territory.
The Wings‘ lead single music video also broke records as it became the fastest K-Pop boy group video to hit 20 million views in just 136 hours and broke its previous record as the fastest video to hit 10 million views. Currently, Blood Sweat & Tears has 32 million views and counting.
It looks like the phenomenal BTS will continue to mark its dominance in the coming days as it has been gaining recognition and mainstream attention. As fans continue to rally behind the K-Pop boy band sensation, expect more exciting news to come for BTS.
