Group BTS hits another milestone, recording over 300,000 members in their official fancafe today.
BTS is second in line of K-pop idol groups with over 300,000 members in recent years, with TVXQ the only other group over that number currently. BTS now ranks second in fancafe members, following TVXQ which has around 540,000 members. Other top fancafes included BEAST, BIGBANG, Girls’ Generation, INFINITE, B1A4, A Pink, Block B, Super Junior, VIXX, EXO, and BTOB.
Around the same time last year, BTS had around 110,000 members, which means the number of members increased almost 200,000 in year.
BTS shared the news on their official Twitter, exclaiming “Oh oh oh oh oh,” while adding a capture of their fancafe number.

Thanks to anni for the tip!
An earlier version of this article misstated BTS’s record. One of the original Korean sources seems to have been wrong. Various other sources printed in earlier years say BIGANG had over 300,000 members until around 2013/2014.
