[MHN Park Haebin reporter / translated by Jung Halim] BTS have hit the top of the Billboard main singles chart 'Hot 100' for the first time. On August 31st, Billboard announced that 'Dynamite', the first fully English song by BTS, debuted on the 'Hot 100' at No. 1.

The 'Hot 100' analyzes streaming amounts, physical album sales, and radio broadcasts to determine what is the 'hottest' music in America for that week. Competition is much more steep that that of the main album chart 'Billboard 200', and as such non-Anglophone artists have historically not been able to penetrate through the rankings. Even Psy's Gangnam Style' had only reached No. 2 back in 2012.

BTS, with their previous four placings at the top of the 'Billboard 200', means that they have now dominated the two main Billboard charts. This event does carry huge significance for Korean pop in general.

Artist PSY sent his congratulations, as well as the South Korean president Moon Jae-in. The president took note of the event on his social media channel on September 1st, saying, "Remarkable. This event shows the pride and value of K-Pop."

BTS have also won 4 awards on the '2020 MTV Video Music Awards', as well as showing off their performance of 'Dynamite' for the first time.
