The success doesn’t stop; it’s amazing how BTS‘ Jungkook is currently dominating the US charts despite having zero promotion and being in mandatory military service since December 12th, which proves that he is a talented artist capable of composing songs that hold up even in his absence.
As is the case with ‘Standing Next to You‘, the title track of ‘Golden‘, the solo album that quickly became a hit, holding the top spot on Billboard’s digital song sales chart for more than 4 consecutive weeks, no other K-Pop idol has ever achieved anything like it as a solo artist.

The song has broken many K-Pop solo artist records, as it has been on the official UK Top 100 singles chart for six consecutive weeks and has been on Billboard’s Hot 100 for more than a month in a row, and everything seems to indicate that it will be there for a long time in the future.
It should be noted that Jungkook is currently doing his military service at a base where he will be accompanied in the activities by his bandmate Jimin; however, he will not be able to do any activities related to his music career until the 18 months of his service in the army are over.
