Korean superstars BTS has once more dominated Twitter in the Philippines this 2020.

In its year-end recap, the social media platform officially listed the globally adored BTS — composed of its seven members RM, Jin, Suga, J-hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook — as the Most Tweeted about K-pop group in the country. They also owned the title last year.


The idol group made headlines this year when their first English single “Dynamite” hit the number one spot in the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Their coronavirus pandemic-inspired latest track “Life Goes On,” off their “Be” album, became the first Korean language song to top the same chart. “Be,” meanwhile, landed on top of the Billboard 200 charts, BTS’s fifth album to do so.

They also recently scored their first Grammy nomination for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.

In June, BTS donated $1 million to the Black Lives Matter movement, which their fans, collectively called ARMYs, matched.

Following BTS on Twitter Philippines’ Top 10 list are Blackpink, Seventeen, EXO, Twice, TREASURE, TXT, GOT7, Enhypen and Stray Kids.

BTS is also the Philippines’ Most Tweeted about K-pop hashtag and Most Tweeted about account. JB
