(PRESSREELS) BTS member V reaffirmed his popularity in Japan.
On June 8, the OST “Sweet Night,” written, composed, produced and sung by V, ranked third on the Japanese iTunes “TOP SONG” chart.
When “Sweet Night” was released in March, it ranked second on the Japanese iTunes “TOP SONG” chart. It is the best record ever for a Korean solo artist’s release in Korea, not a local release song in Japan, and V has been the world’s second-largest music market in a row.
V’s performance is more meaningful in that it is not a local release song that has been promoted in Japan, and it is a record of the entire “TOP SONG” chart, not the “pop chart” and “K-pop chart,” which are sub-genre charts on iTunes’ “Top Song” charts.
“Sweet Night” also proved its hot local popularity by selecting a series of popular radio broadcasts under Megalopolis, which accounts for 65 percent of Japan’s radio networks, including FM 76.5 Cocolo and FM 83.1 Radio Shonan.
On the 12th, the Japanese economic newspaper “Toyo Keizai” cited the excellence of the OST selection as one of the reasons for the Japanese hit of the drama “Itaewon Class.”
Not long ago, Japanese media Real Sound mentioned V’s “Sweet Night” as one of the reasons why “Itaewon Class” is gaining popularity on Netflix in Japan, and said, “BTS V has attracted K-pop fans from all over the world by participating in the OST.We also analyzed it “high.
Meanwhile, BTS, which includes V, is set to release its fourth full-length Japanese album “MAP OF THE SOUL: 7 ~ THE JOURNEY~” on July 15.
