The album reached the top spot on the iTunes album charts in 13 countries. Countries include Armenia, Brunei, Finland, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Peru, the Philippines, Singapore, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.

The single “Spring Day” is also the first song by a K-Pop group to break into the top 10 on the iTunes songs chart in the United States.  Singer PSY previously reached No. 1 on the songs chart with “Gangnam Style,” but BTS is the first group to make it into the top 10.

Their previous album, WINGS, premiered at #26 on the Billboard top 200, making BTS the first K-pop act have a record on the US charts for a period of two weeks in a row.  Their songs, sung completely in Korean broke language barriers other that other more well known artists have failed to crack.

In addition, in December of 2016, BTS led the Billboard Social 50 as the most retweeted artist, charting at #1 above Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Zayn Malik, and others.  With a following of over 4 million on that platform, BTS again leads among pop artists worldwide.
