Jungkook, From BTS, is on track to make history with his solo single “Seven.” The song is currently second on the UK Singles Chart, just 2,000 copies behind the top-performing single, “Sprinter” by Dave & Central Cee.
If “Seven” is able to reach number one, it will be the first song by a Korean artist to do so in over 10 years, since Psy’s “Gangnam Style” topped the charts in 2012.
“Seven” has been met with widespread critical acclaim, with many praising Jungkook’s vocals and songwriting. The song has also been a commercial success, with over 1 million copies sold worldwide.
Jungkook’s success in the UK is a testament to his growing global popularity. The singer has a large and dedicated fan base in the UK, and “Seven” has been featured on several popular streaming playlists.
If “Seven” is able to reach number one on the UK Singles Chart, it will be a major milestone for Jungkook and for K-pop as a whole. The achievement would show that K-pop is no longer just a niche genre, but is now a force to be reckoned with in the global music industry.
