BTS climbs to the top of Japan's biggest music chart
Last Friday, Korean boy band BTS performed their hit single "Fire" on one of Japan's premier television music shows, where they performed their hit single to a large viewing audience. It's been two years since their last Japanese television appearance, but it looks like fans haven't forgotten. BTS is currently on top of the charts with their newest album.
Two years ago, BTS made their Japanese debut with the album 2 Cool 4 Skool, instantly gaining a multitude of loyal fans. Since then, the seven-member group has released six Japanese singles and performed to sold-out crowds all over the country, quickly becoming one of Japan's most popular Korean groups to date. So when they appeared on popular live music show Buzz Rhythm on a major Japanese network last week, fans were more than excited to see their favorite members performing "Fire," a hit single from their. latest album, Youth. As proof of the band's immense popularity in Japan, Youth is ranked number one on Japan's premiere music chart, Oricon, for weekly album sales this past week.
It certainly looks like BTS is on to bigger and greater things in Japan. Just last month, they rocked the stage at A-Nation, one of Japan's biggest summer music festivals. Wherever these guys go, especially in Asia, loyal fans can't seem to stop showering them with love.
