Jung-kook of Bangtan Boys, also known as BTS, has broken the Guinness World Record for amassing 1 billion Spotify streams in the shortest time for a K-pop artist.
Guinness World Records said on Monday that Jung-kook hit the milestone with only three songs -- "Stay Alive," "Left and Right" and "Dreamers" -- which "propelled the solo star to 1 billion streams in 409 days."
That is two days faster than the previous record set by Lisa of girl group Blackpink last October.
BTS announced their indefinite hiatus last year and the members have been concentrating on individual efforts. Jung-kook has also released a couple of songs but an official solo album has yet to come out.
