  • No. 5?
  • That’s great. I listen to this song every day. Great song.
  • But why are BTS’s sales so high?
  • Oh, Dynamite is a zombie.
  • If Spring Day is a zombie on Melon then Dynamite is a zombie on Billboard.
  • I thought it was a summer song but I still love listening to it in winter.
  • To be honest, Dynamite is a great song for everyone to listen to, regardless of country or culture.
