K-Pop Group Breaks into Billboard Top 100

posted by Randall

The Korean boy band BTS (AKA Bangtan Boys) has broken into the billboard top 100 at number 26.
Not bad for a band whose songs are all in Korean.
BTS sold 16,000 units of its new album Wings during the week ending October 13 . That beats the previous high for a K-Pop band, 2NE1’s Crush which topped at 61 in 2014.
BTS drew rave notices in America in 2015 with two U.S. sold out tours. The group also headlined two KCCN festivals in Los Angeles and Newark, NJ.

“The group blends ­individual artistry, which is what the U.S. ­audience expects in their music, and the K-pop system, which focuses more on the group sound and teamwork,” says Grace Jeong, editor-in-chief of Soompi, a K-Pop news site.
