    BTS's "Love Yourself: Answer" Has Spent A Full Year On The Billboard 200 And ARMYs Are Tweeting Out Their Pride

    *bows down*

    This should come as literally no surprise, but BTS has another record under their belt โ€” their Love Yourself: Answer album has been spent a โœจFULL YEARโœจ on the Billboard 200 chart.

    According to Billboard, Love Yourself: Answer re-entered the chart this week at No. 165 (it peaked at #1 in 2018) for its 52nd, non-consecutive week. But! That's not even the only album they have on the Billboard 200 right now โ€” their latest EP, Map of the Soul: Persona, is at No. 149 this week for its 25th, non-consecutive week on the chart.

    When the news came out, fans started using the hashtag #OnlyBTScan to emphasis BTS's prowess in pretty much all areas โ€” or should I say ~arenas~? Here are some of the best tweets:

    They have monumental economic and charitable impact:

    #OnlyBTScan generate 56 trillion won (US$49.70 billion) in economic benefits over the next 10 years, outpacing the 41.6 trillion won impact of the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics. A single group is doing that @BTS_twt https://t.co/aPu6cERF0U

    0.3% might seem small, but BTS is just one K-pop group vs. major corporate conglomerates, and you can't ignore the 4.65 billion they bring in (as per 2018 figures). You can check out the full Statista article here.

    Like, they're able to attract fans to watch videos of them *without* actually being there:

    #OnlyBTScan gather together their fandom just to watch a Car AD in the middle of London without even be there . @BTS_twt

    HOW?

    And not to mention the amount of sleep fans have lost just to see them on their TVs/laptops/phones:

    #OnlyBTScan make me wake up at 5am to watch an award show @BTS_twt

    They can turn the biggest skeptics into fans:

    #OnlyBTSCan make me, a child of the 90โ€™s, who hated the concept of boy groups and never liked *NSYNC, BSB, New Kids on the Block, or 1D, stan a boygroup harder than Iโ€™ve ever stanned any band or music act or anyone really.

    Including old K-pop fans who thought they were done:

    #OnlyBTScan bring back my dead Kpop-fandom cells to life. The last groups I stan was from the era of Big Bang, Suju, GG and 2ne1. The devil down there worked so little to enchant me @BTS_twt #bts

    @VisforBigHit / Via Twitter: @VisforBigHit

    They produce and perform music that has layers, depth, reliability, and stellar storytelling:

    #OnlyBTSCan do a complicated storytelling throughout numerous MVs formed around advanced psychology, Greek mythology and infinite metaphors all while long presenting the troubles that plague the youth and have it actually make sense. No one does it like @BTS_twt.

    @omermeroz / Via Twitter: @omermeroz

    They deliver *entire* albums of bops:

    #OnlyBTScan deliver albums which are sincere, have concept and have great lyrics! Their side tracks are equally great as their title tracks and hence they rightfully have the best selling album of 2019 ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    And transcend languages:

    #OnlyBTScan make me feel things that move my soul, give me the chills, lift my spirit, and make me cryโ€”all in a language that I donโ€™t know. ๐Ÿคฏ @BTS_twt

    @sarahmo21232208 / Via Twitter: @sarahmo21232208

    Don't come with that "Don't lyrics matter anymore??" bullcrap. Music is music. Instrumental music makes you feel the feels too. (And there are these things called translations. Look it up.)

    They can literally make the world ~light up~:

    #OnlyBTSCan turn the world purple. The @BTS_twt impact.
