BTS was placed No. 28 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart with its latest song "Mic Drop", becoming the highest-ranking K-pop band in the prestigious music chart.

The seven-member group broke its own record set in October with "DNA" that claimed No. 67 on Billboard's chart.

"Mic Drop" featuring hip-hop artist Desiigner has been popular since its remix was released on November 24, with its music video viewed more than 47.7 million times on YouTube.

As a K-pop solo artist, rapper Psy achieved higher spots in the Hot 100 chart with his worldwide hit "Gangnam Style", which maintained its No.2 spot for seven weeks in 2012. The rapper also had "Gentleman" charted No. 5 in 2013 and "Hangover" charted No. 26 in 2014.
