K-pop boy band BTS made it again to this year’s 25 Most Influential People on the Internet.
TIME has released its fifth annual list based on “their global impact on social media and their overall ability to drive news.”
This is the third consecutive year that BTS have been put on the list.
“South Korean super group BTS are well on their way to becoming a household name—if they aren’t already—thanks to their millions-strong fanbase of digital natives, called ‘ARMY,’ who avidly consume and promote their content online,” according to TIME.com.
It cited BTS’ three No. 1 Billboard 200 albums in a span of one year, and “Boy With Luv” music video featuring Halsey, which according to YouTube, garnered 74.6 million views in the first 24 hours.
Joining BTS on the list this year are Lil Nas X, US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, US President Donald Trump, Rahaf Mohammed, Ariana Grande, The School Strikers, Liza Koshy, Brian Kolfage, James Charles, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Germán Garmendia, Cardi B, Chris Godfrey, Carlos Maza, Zhang Dayi, JoJo Siwa, Ben Shapiro, DrLupo, Emma Chamberlain, Hong Kong Protesters, Yashar Alim, Jameela Jamil, Ady Barkan and Jada Pinkett Smith.
