The growing overseas popularity of male group BTS can be currently felt in Japan, where the group has ranked high on music charts with their latest release “No More Dream.”
On June 4, BTS released their first Japanese single “No More Dream” and debuted at number six on the Daily Chart. The group sold 32,356 copies of their single during the first week, and managed to rank eighth on the competitive Oricon Weekly Single Chart.
The single received a lot of love domestically, and the song was thus chosen for BTS’ first Japanese remake. It has also been revealed that Japanese rapper KM Markit participated in writing the Japanese lyrics for the song.
In related news, BTS recently signed an exclusive contract with Japanese entertainment firm Pony Canyon and is set to soon start their official activities.
