BTS is known for breaking records by now, but this record is particularly interesting because it predates their big explosion in popularity in recent years.
For those unfamiliar with Gaon, they are a chart which tracks physical shipments in their “Album Chart” and streaming and downloads in their “Digital Chart”.
One of BTS’s albums has been charting for an insane length of time on the Album Chart and it’s not the album you’d expect it to be.
BTS’s debut album, ‘2 Cool 4 Skool’ has been charting on the Gaon Albums chart for 290 consecutive weeks which is over 5 and a half years.
That means that not only is it currently in the Gaon chart, it also has never left the chart since its release in 2013.

Furthermore, the album has never left the top 100 of the chart. Everyone has been buying ‘2 Cool 4 Skool’ for over 5 years.

Another surprising yet fantastic accomplishment from BTS!
