BTS has achieved yet another world record, and this time, the K-pop boy band has earned the Guinness World Record title for most viewers for a music concert live stream.

BTS was crowned with this new record for its June 14 online concert, “BANG BANG CON: The Live,” Soompi reported. This virtual concert had over 756,000 fans tuning in from over 100 countries to watch the group's members — RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook — perform some of their biggest hits.

In the announcement released on Wednesday, Guinness World Records noted that the concert, which was held “in lieu of a live performance” due to the current global pandemic, featured 12 song performances and messages for fans from the seven BTS members. The pay-per-view performance was streamed on the South Korean app WeVerse and the American startup Kiswe Mobile, and tickets were sold for $25 each.

Fans of the group, collectively known as ARMY, were given access to six different angles while watching the online concert. The songs that BTS performed included older favorites such as “Just One Day,” “Spring Day” and “DOPE” and newer hits like “Boy With Luv” and “Black Swan.”

“Though we may not be able to see each other at this time, we’ve been constantly striving to grow as a group. We are coping up with it pretty well so hope that you too can overcome this time by finding the small joy within,” Jimin told fans during the virtual show.

Breaking a world record is hardly new for the highly successful boy band. BTS is also the Guinness World Record holder for having the best selling album in South Korea, getting the most Twitter engagements and for being the “first K-pop act to reach number one on the U.S. album chart.”

Last year, fans of BTS also set the record for the “most used hashtag in 24 hours” after they used #TwitterBestFandom in over 60 million tweets in just one day. On TikTok, the group’s account got seven digits of followers just 3 hours and 31 minutes after it was launched, earning the group the record for the “fastest time to reach one million followers on TikTok.”

Recently, BTS also achieved the feat of having the bestselling album of 2020 in Japan, Korea and the United States, Forbes reported.
