This year, BTS topped the Hot 100 (more than once!) while acts including SuperM, Blackpink and more made history of their own. Take a look back at K-pop’s most game-changing chart victories of 2020.
February 8: In February, BTS surpassed Justin Bieber for most weeks at No. 1 in the 10-year history of Billboard’s Social 50 chart. The mark was set when BTS spent a 164th week at the top. The group currently sits at 209 weeks (and counting).
September 5: BTS became the first all-South Korean group to rule the Billboard Hot 100 when “Dynamite” debuted at No. 1 on the Sept. 5 chart.
December 5: With “Life Goes On,” BTS became the first duo/group in Hot 100 history to have two songs debut at No. 1. It’s also the first No. 1 in the chart’s 62-year history sung predominantly in Korean.
