    Meanwhile, BTS' fourth regular album, "Map of the Soul: 7," has remained on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart for almost a year now since its release in February last year, coming in at 108th in the latest weekly ranking released on Tuesday. This is the longest run on the chart of any album by a Korean artist.

    Their all-English hit "Dynamite," which was released in August last year, has been on Billboard's Hot 100 for six months and ranked 45th in this week's chart.
