details of the incident!
BTS is the first Korean artist to debut at #26 on Billboard 200
Billboard has 2 main charts - 200 and Hot 100 and C.L, Psy and Wonder Girls did put their name on Hot 100 chart
To get on this chart the artist has to release a US album so this is literally like their local music chart
It's hard for Korean artists who release albums in Korea to enter this chart
in other words, BTS entered Billboard 200 with Youtube views and album sales but it's hard for them to enter the Hot 100 chart
So the fans signed petition
(the person who created this had contacted the radio station and they wanted to check how many people wanted to listen to BTS's song on their radio)
This is the outcome accomplished by BTS's international fandom and Korean fandom themselves...
Billboard KPOP reporter was touched by the fans and he said he participated too
I'm really looking forward to seeing the accomplishments BTS will achieve with their next album❤
