hi omona 🙋🏻 it is I, resident Spica stan, finally back with an OT5PICA update after 84 years!

how the reunion came about: Bohyung and Jiwon were guests on H.O.T's Tony Ahn and Lee Jae Won's bar talk program Talk! Live on 4th April, and the PDs reached out to Boa, Sihyun and Narae to appear as a surprise :) videos of the OT5 surprise (done in the BEST way) and some translated anecdotes after the cut! (they also had snacks and alcohol and reminisced and had a surprise cake for birthday girl Jiwon 🎂 it was a lovely night of surprises 🥰)

Flashback Friday

It’s Friday! Every week I check out the charts for this day in the past and post the top three songs. Then I pick out two more from the top ten as honorable mentions. This week, we’re going back to the 2nd week in April, 2008. The top three have been posted before, so we’ll see some live performances. If you’re heading out to Indio, stay safe and hydrated! Actually, everybody stay safe and hydrated. Go drink some water.

#3 Mighty Mouth “I Love You”
One of the few songs from them I can identify at first listen lol. The original featured singer and actress Yoon Eun Hye, but she didn’t perform in any of the live stages. So here’s the duo doing the song with Solbi.

BTS’ sincerity shines through on Map of the Soul: Persona (a Line of Best Fit review)

With over 3,000,000 pre-orders across the world, BTS’ Map of the Soul: Persona was set to break all the records set by its predecessor, the Love Yourself series, before it was even released.

The k-pop group’s ARMY guaranteed big numbers the minute it was announced – but it’s the songs themselves that should guarantee the album’s global success.

Throughout the mini-album are references to BTS’ past and reflections on their growth as artists and individuals. “Intro: Persona” begins with a parallel to 2014’s “Intro: Skool Love Affair” – a much beloved but critiqued era in BTS’ history for their own thoughtful ARMYs. There are similarities in the old school hip-hop style, but thematically they couldn’t be more different. Leader Kim Namjoon asks the big question “Who am I?” and acknowledges that it’s a question he probably won’t find the whole answer to in his lifetime. It’s a weighty subject handled with maturity and grace – even when reflecting on bitter moments and the unfair commentary that has followed him throughout the band’s career.

BTS –‘Map Of The Soul: Persona’ (an NME review)

Score: 4 stars out of 5

Eight months on from their last album, the Bangtan Boys explore the idea of artist versus idol, roping in a couple of high-profile cameos – from Halsey to Ed Sheeran – to craft a record that sees them continuing to raise the bar

In the eight months since BTS last released an album – the 26-song ‘Love Yourself: Answer’, which collated tracks from the rest of the ‘Love Yourself’ trilogy with added new cuts – a lot has happened for the Korean pop wonders. They’ve dominated the Grammys just by presenting an award and looking like they were having the time of their lives in the crowd, put out their first fully English track in Steve Aoki collaboration ‘Waste It On Me’, and claimed a ton of the top prizes at Korea’s biggest award ceremonies. There’s also the small matter of an upcoming stadium tour that includes two quickly sold-out dates at London’s iconic Wembley Stadium.

(Trying again, let's hope no video will get taken down this time) I love it. Mikrokosmos and Make it right left the biggest impression so far and Dyonisus is gonna go HARD during concerts. After hours of listening to it, I also really enjoy Halsey's contribution to Boy with luv.
I love arm

BTS' latest album breaks Melon then takes over the charts (+ other achievements so far)


BTS Sweeps All Major Realtime Charts With “Boy With Luv” And “Map Of The Soul: Persona”

BTS has soared to the top of the charts!

On April 12 at 6 p.m. KST, BTS released “Map of the Soul: Persona” including the title track “Boy With Luv” featuring Halsey.
By 7 p.m. KST, “Boy With Luv” had already taken No. 1 on the realtime charts of six major music sites including Soribada, Genie, Naver, Bugs, Mnet, and Flo.

It’s reported that after the album’s release, users were not able to access the mobile site of Korea’s largest music site Melon for about an hour. Popular realtime search terms on a portal site included “Melon error,” “Access Melon,” and BTS’s song title “Boy With Luv.”
A source from Melon stated, “Due to the influx of traffic, it is not connecting on mobile.” They added, “We are currently identifying the cause of the error and restoring.”

By 8 p.m. KST, it appeared the issue had been corrected and BTS’s “Boy With Luv” made its debut on Melon at No. 1.
This means that BTS has now taken the top spot on every major realtime chart in Korea with their new title track!
Meanwhile, the major charts also include BTS’s b-sides following “Boy With Luv” at the top of the charts. For example, songs from “Map of the Soul: Persona” have taken over the top 10 on Melon.

Congratulations to BTS!

As of now, BWL has 41M views and the 7 songs of Persona are occupying all 7 first spots on Melon. Also, I need an official source to confirm this but I've read that sales for Persona reached around 1,4m copies on Hanteo, seemingly breaking in one day the record for highest first week sales on Hanteo.
