BTS V’s Wikipedia page ranked No.1 in the official ranking of male singers’ pageviews in September.
According to Wikipedia’s report on October 11th, the page of BTS V recorded 276,920 views in the official ranking of Wikipedia’s Korean project pages (English edition) in September 2021. In addition, V ranked 1st place among the male singers.
In the ranking that includes all categories, Netflix’s Korean drama “Squid Game”, which has recently become a hit worldwide, ranked No.1 and was followed by BTS. Thanks to the global craze of “Squid Game”, actors, such as Lee Jung Jae and Park Hae Soo, entered the top ranks. Moreover, “Hometown Cha Cha Cha” and its main actors also joined the league.
Surprisingly, even when Netflix contents were dominating, the page of BTS V still recorded the most view among all male singers. Earlier, BTS V also ranked No.1 in the chart of Korean celebrities who had the most-viewed personal pages for 3 consecutive months (June, July, and August). In addition, after Wikipedia began to be serviced, from July 2015 to September 2021, BTS V’s page recorded the highest figure among KPOP stars, with 21.19 million cumulative page views worldwide.
The global popularity of V is undeniable. V ranked No.1 in “Most Popular KPOP Idols Worldwide 2021” chosen by Nubia Magazine. He was selected as the “most famous BTS member in Southeast Asia” by the British music media “NME” and Germany’s “Brigitte” magazine. The Russia’s largest SNS Vkontakte (VK)’s KPOP community “Dear Zone” KPOP personal fanclub also ranked V at No.4.
