BTS also held the previous record for a K-pop album ranking on the Billboard 200.

It marks the first time the band has entered the chart since it reached No. 62 with "Wings" last October. BTS is the first Korean and first Asian-region act to accomplish such a feat.

Do we sense that a Europe tour may be on the cards after this success?


American music publication Billboard magazine, meanwhile, reported that "Love Yourself: Her" rose to No. 7 on its main album chart, the Billboard 200. Notably, Wings and Love Yourself: Her are the only K-pop albums that have charted in the top 40.

BTS' latest EP "Love Yourself Seung Her" debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 album chart on Sunday, setting yet another milestone for the hottest K-pop group of the moment. With 49 weeks total on the Social 50, BTS has 40 non-consecutive weeks at #1 making them the only K-pop group to maintain this level of consistency in the Billboard list.

The Billboard chart achievement caps an fantastic week for BTS, who has broken multiple records only a few days after the September 18 release of the album as well as the single "DNA". "DNA" also became the fastest K-pop music video to reach 20 million views on YouTube.
