BTS’s whole discography is returning to the iTunes charts of many countries, showing the ARMY fandom’s power whenever something happens to their idols.
After the news about BTS lost all 3 awards to BLACKPINK at the People’s Choice Awards 2019 (PCAs) got out, the ARMY community is furious. According to their proofs, PCAs has been unfair to the boy group when the voting results of BTS were much higher than BLACKPINK’s.
However, instead of attacking the related names, ARMY put all of their furies into an act of sweeter revenge: bring BTS’s albums back to the iTunes charts all over the world.
As of Nov 12th, all 13 Korean albums of BTS have simultaneously returned to the U.S iTunes Chart with the highest rank belongs to “Map of the Soul: Persona”. The latest album of BTS was at the top 700 but immediately returned to #2 on the chart after the event. Not just that, “Map of the Soul: Persona” is leading the Bestsellers chart on the U.S iTunes.
“Map of the Soul: Persona” doesn’t just surprise the U.S iTunes, but also different iTunes Charts in many other countries. As of right now, BTS’s latest album has returned to its #1 in 44 countries, including the latest one in Ireland. In the U.K – one of the hardest music markets in the world – BTS has even reached #2 on iTunes. Not stopping at that, “Map of the Soul: Persona” has once again conquered the #1 of Worldwide iTunes Album Chart.
Apart from that, the “Cypher” tracks, which were made by BTS for their anti-fan, also soared on charts. These songs are known to be ARMY’s favorites to listen to when they want to vent their anger.
ARMY’s action of bringing back BTS’s albums onto the charts is being seen as proper and well-mannered revenge instead of bashing and attacking on SNS, because achievement is the most sufficient proof of their success. Korean netizens are wowed by the power of BTS’s fandom. Some even said that this could even be seen as their official comeback.
