Billboard "Social 50 chart, K​​pop occupation .. BTS · EXO · Wanna One · GOT7"

The billboard media of the United States surprised the power of K pop.

Billboard writes on the 14th (local time) that "four K-pops for the first time in history are on top of the Billboard Social 50." The groups they have noticed are Bangtan Boys, EXO Wanna One, and GOT7.

Billboard Social 50 charts rank the most popular artists based on data tracked on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Wikipedia.

In this chart, the Bulletproof Boys lead first in 65 weeks with explosive global fandom and social media reactions. EXO recently announced its second place on the charts due to the celebration of the closing ceremony of the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.


BTS leads the chart with 34.2 million Twitter mentions and 1.3 million YouTube reactions among its biggest drivers, according to Next Big Sound. The K-pop boy band, which has led the Social 50 for 65 weeks in all, celebrated member J-Hope’s solo debut and Suga’s 25th birthday.

Meanwhile, EXO ranks at No. 2 (525,000 Wikipedia views and 985,000 Instagram reactions; though down in multiple metrics) with posts including an Instagram image of support for the 2018 Winter Paralympic Games in Pyeongchang. Meanwhile, Wanna One breaks into the top five (11-4) for the first time with 7.4 million Instagram reactions and 58,000 new followers on the service while promoting its new EP, 0+1=1 (I Promise You), out March 19.


Completing the K-pop assault on the Social 50’s top 10 is GOT7, which returns to the top 10 (No. 6) for the first time since April 2016 following a 175 percent boost in Twitter reactions to 1 million in all. The boyband teased the live premiere of new EP “Eyes on You” throughout the week; the effort was released March 12.


Previously, K-pop notched three acts in the Social 50’s top 10 five different times, first occurring on the Dec. 2, 2017-dated ranking, when BTS, SEVENTEEN and Wanna One ranked in the top 10. More recently, BTS, EXO and SEVENTEEN reached the top 10 of the Feb. 24 chart.
