Jimin, a member of the group BTS, became the first K-pop solo singer to top the US main chart 'Billboard Hot 100'. 
Jimin wrote the history of the Korean music industry, which even Psy could not do. However, some point out that Jimin's No. 1 on the Billboard is unjust. What role does the K-pop gungong culture that made Jimin's first place play in the Korean music industry and the global market?
Jimin's first solo album 'Face' title song 'Like Crazy' reached the top of the Billboard 'Hot 100' chart on the 4th (local time). It also ranked 2nd on the main album chart 'Billboard 200', 1st on 'Digital Song Sales' and 'World Digital Song Sales', and 35th on 'Streaming Song'. Among the many records, the one that stands out is the 'Hot 100' chart. 
The 'Hot 100' chart is a chart that requires high sales volume. Billboard changed its regulations last year to recognize only one download per week and exclude more than two downloads. Nevertheless, Jimin is the first K-pop solo singer to reach the top spot in the number of digital music sales.
