The group just pulled up behind Bieber for act with the most subscriptions.
In the wind-up to Friday's (Oct. 2) release of their highly anticipated full-length debut, The Album, the K-pop supergroup has risen from No. 5 on the YT subscriber list in July to a close second to Bieber's 57.3 million subscribers.
The news comes on the eve of their debut on the new YouTube Originals music series RELEASED, which premieres at 11:45 p.m. ET on Thursday (Oct. 1), just minutes before the album's release. The 16-episode RELEASED is slated to air on Thursday nights before that week's major releases drop, and it will include exclusive performances and announcements.
