Each year, TIME magazine announces a roundup of the most influential people on the internet through evaluating their social media reach, impact, and ability to drive news. Not to anyone’s surprise, BTS’ domination of the internet through capturing the hearts of millions of ARMY, their fanbase name, members catapulted them onto this list with a plethora of achievements including:

- Grabbing the first stop on Billboard’s Top Albums chart
- Most followed Korean twitter account
- Landing in a solid No. 10 on Billboard’s Hot 100
Their hard work paid off in many more achievements on iTunes, Twitter, and YouTube.
It seems like the fire hasn’t died yet, as BTS and their fanbase are still growing at an incredible. We can’t wait to see where they go!
