BTS Are Once Again in the Guinness Book of World Records

The K-pop Kings continue their reign

July 24, 2020

Yes, you read that right, BTS have earned themselves another Guinness World Record, this time for the most viewers of a music concert livestream with an online performance.

‘Bang Bang Con: The Live’ aired on June 14th and was held as part of BTS’ seventh-anniversary celebrations. With a twelve-song setlist from the K-pop band, the event also included a roundtable-style chat with the band members, broadcast live from Seoul, South Korea.

Not that we needed any convincing that the BTS Army goes hard, in total 756,000 of them tuned in, spanning over 100 countries, to catch the online performance.

This most recent achievement marks the fifth Guinness World Record the band hold, along with being the first K-pop act to reach number one on the US album charts, holding the best-selling album in South Korea, the fastest time to reach one million followers on TikTok, just 31 minutes. As well as having the most Twitter engagements in March 2019 for the most used hashtag in 24 hours, which they were able to achieve with the help of their oh so loyal ARMY, tweeting #TwitterBestFandom 60,055,339 times. BTS have themselves quite the GWR collection, and something tells us this isn’t going to be their last.

Earlier this month, BTS released their eighth studio album and fourth Japanese language album Map of the Soul: 7 – The Journey, following their February release, Map Of The Soul: 7.
