Updated On 22 Apr, 2019 Published On

Boy band BTS is the first ever K-pop band to become the first Korean musical act to acquire number one place in the UK album chart. 

The K-pop group comprising of seven members went straight in and at the top after 26,500 sales of their EP, Map of The Soul: Persona.

The band is now lined up for two major gigs at London's Wembley Stadium in June as part of their forthcoming world tour.

The second date for the tour was added after the Wembley Stadium sold out in 90 minutes.

BTS has also already sold out shows in Paris and in the US.

Despite being musically active since 2013, it's just been a few months since BTS or Bangtan Boys, have taken the world by storm with their K-pop.

They are now amongst the most popular musical groups in the world.

BTS became the first K-pop band from South Korea to achieve a gold sales certification in the United States.

Further, the boy band has two #1 US Billboard chart albums and have amassed 19 million followers on Twitter.
