"Love yourself is a universal message for teens all over the world," the band says.
With Love Yourself: Her sitting high on the Billboard 200 at No. 7 and "DNA" at No. 85 on the Hot 100, BTS has been having a very good week: They've become the highest ranked K-pop act ever on the former chart and the only K-pop act to ever appear on both of Billboard's primary charts at once.
A lot of hard work and an outpouring of support from their loyal ARMY fan base led to this point and the Korean act won't forget it anytime soon.
"Love yourself is a universal message for teens all over the world," the group told Billboard in a joint statement, drawing on the album’s title for inspiration. "Wherever you might be or whatever language you speak, we are all sharing the same humanity. Love always start with you, your acceptance and compassion for yourself."
