BTS also destroyed One Direction’s 8-week record on the chart long before. During the recent Billboard Music Awards, BTS won the Top Social Artist Award beating Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande and Shawn Mendes. The boys charted a milestone as the first

Even with the recent decision of Gaon Chart to disqualify G-Dragon’s “Kwon Ji Yong” from its sales tally due to a technicality, the BIGBANG leader is managing to overcome the odds by doing well on music shows. He charted wins in Inkigayo and Music Core despite not being able to perform live in the shows.
