BTS’ J-Hope Becomes First Korean Solo Artist To Get 7.5 Million+ Followers On Spotify
BTS’ J-Hope is over the moon as he has surpassed the 7.5 million mark on Spotify, making him the first Korean solo artist to have achieved this feat. He has prolonged his own record as the most followed Korean artist on the platform.
BTS itself is also the most followed Korean group on Spotify with 27.2 million followers currently. BTS’ record is followed by that of Blackpink who have 18.3 million followers. This is followed by Twice with 7.57 million followers, Exo 7.07 million followers and Seventeen with 4.60 million followers. BTS’ J-Hope was congratulated on the new record by the ARMY on social media as well.
Apart from this, the host of the Late Late Show, James Corden, was recently been subjected to BTS Army’s distress as the former joked about the group’s UN appearance. The septet consisting of RM, Jin, J-Hope, Suga, Jimin, V, and Jungkook recently delivered a speech at the UNGA’s Sustainable Development Goals Moment and also performed their hit song, Permission to Dance at the Assembly hall, and the grounds outside.
Corden, later on his show, mocked BTS’ address by terming it ‘unusual’, and further generalised the Army to a group of ‘15-year-old teenage girls’. “The United Nations General Assembly kicked off this morning in New York City, and it started with some pretty unusual visitors… BTS were there. BTS visited the UN…
Although lots of people are saying why are BTS there, the world leaders have no choice but to take BTS seriously. BTS has one of the largest ARMY on the planet earth. Historic moment. It actually marks the first time that 15-year-old girls everywhere found themselves wishing that they were Secretary-General António Guterres,” Corden had said. Although the two entities share a great camaraderie, Corden’s comments aggravated the Army to a level where they have blacklisted the talk show host.
