Something Else Record-Breaking Happened For BTS On February 21

They’re breaking records left and right!

By now, all ARMYs have likely played through the new BTS album Map of the Soul: 7 numerous times, have pressed the repeat button on the music video until their fingers hurt, and are generally losing their minds about their most recent comeback.

But February 21 is a big day for BTS in another way as well!

As of 8:07 a.m. KST, the hit song “Boy With Luv” has broken records – by being the fastest K-Pop boy group music video to reach 700 million views.  The video was originally released on April 12, 2019, which means that the record took 10 months, 8 days, and about 14 hours to reach.

It’s also only the second K-Pop boy group music video to even reach 700 million views, with the first being BTS’s own “DNA” that reached the record back in April of last year!

Congratulations to BTS on hitting such an amazing milestone, and for the release of their new album!
