After entering 2021 with a smile (because we left behind 2020), we need to recap and think about what happened. 2020 has been a record-breaking year for BTS! while the members were sad for not having live concerts, on the other hand they conquered so many new records. Do you know the major achievements of the band from 2020? Watch the video below to take a look at the top five of them!
1. Guinness Book of the World Record:
BTS sets three records in the Guinness book of the World Record with their song 'Dynamite' in 2020. The first one is the fastest video to reach 10 million views in the first 20 minutes of its release.
Secondly, Dynamite garnered 101.1 million views in 24 hours becoming the first music video to achieve this. Then it became the fastest MV to gain 200 million views in the shortest amount of time. This way, three records have been added to the Guinness Book of the World Record against BTS' names.
2. First ever #1 Hot 100:
BTS released their first ever English song 'Dynamite' in August 2020. The song's amazing beat did not only amuse the ARMYs but the whole world as it topped the Billboard Hot 100.
It was astounding news for the band as well as the Army. Made us euphoric!
3. Korean song's #1 on Hot 100:
Following Dynamite, BTS' second album BE's title track 'Life Goes On' also made it to number one on Billboard Hot 100. Even though it was not the first time BTS acquired this position, yet it was a big achievement as it is the first time a Korean song achieved this.
Life Goes On couldn't get any radio shows, yet it managed to set the record. Again big congratulations to BTS and their Army!
4. Youth Day in South Korea:
The band received recognition for their work and success amidst Covid-19 from South Korea's president Moon Jae-in on September 19, 2020. The day got declared as the country's National Youth Day and BTS handed a purple box called the moon time capsule to the president.
For the band, the capsule will be opened after 19 years from 2020. Wow, they really are the leaders of the Youth!
5. Grammys Nomination:
Last but definitely not least, BTS received a Grammy Nomination for their song 'Dynamite'. It was truly a historic moment for the band as well as Army.
The members released their reaction video which was cute yet heart-touching. We wish that they again make a history by winning the Grammy this time!
Obviously these are not all the achievements of the band yet the most important ones. These guys genuinely saved us in the lockdown. We would have never survived 2020 if it wasn't for BTS. Good Luck to BTS and the Army in 2021 for all their endeavors!
