The accolades for BTS keep piling up by the day. After achieving several milestones over the past few months, including Billboard chart-toppers and Grammy nominations — the latter being the first for a Korean band ever — the K-pop group's next big accomplishment is displacing fellow K-pop singer PSY's 2012 smash hit single, Gangnam Style, as Korea's longest-running song on Billboard's Hot 100 history. BTS' Dynamite, their biggest hit to date, is now Korea's biggest hit ever, too, with the song topping Billboard's Hot 100 history as the longest-charting single of all time in the Korean music scene, which has no doubt sent ARMY (what BTS' fans the world over address themselves as) into a tizzy.
BTS' Dynamite is now at the numero uno spot for a total of thirty two weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 music chart, leapfrogging PSY's Gangnam Style, which had been at pole position for a total of thirty one weeks in the past. Of course, fans would recollect how popular Gangnam Style was all across the globe, with the songs being played at almost every event imaginable be it those held for kids or adults regardless of the time and place. It would've taken some doing for it to be displaced, and BTS' Dynamite is the ideal candidate for that, given how popular both the band and sing is everywhere.
The other K-pop songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart is Baby Shark with twenty weeks, Gentlemen with fifteen weeks and MIC Drop with ten weeks. BTS is again on the list at the sixth, eight and ninth positions with Boy With Luv clocking in at eight weeks, and both DNA and Kill this Love tying for the eight slot, while Life Goes On comes in at the ninth spot.
