A video of BTS member Jungkook dancing to Billie Eilish’s Bad Guy accumulated over 25.7 million cumulative views, 950,000 retweets, and 2.2 million likes. It is one of the most-liked tweets in the world.

The most retweeted post last year, known as Golden Tweet, was also a BTS tweet with Jungkook singing a cover of Park Won’s All My Life.

This year, Korean culture became more globally accessible than ever before.

To recap some of the most memorable moments on Twitter in the past year, Twitter Korea released “#ThisHappened2019”.

Ranking top of the list without surprise is BTS (@BTS_twt) which is Twitter’s No.1 top global user of 2019.

The K-pop boy group uses Twitter to communicate with fans (affectionately called BTS Army) and with many fans, it is no surprise that BTS’s official Twitter account for the third straight year came on top.

Twitter Korea released their report this year on the worldwide trending statistics with two categories specifically relating to K-pop instead of just focusing on trends in Korea.

BLACKPINK was the only girl group to make the top 10 most mentioned K-pop accounts globally.

The following is the Global Top 10 Most Mentioned K-pop accounts:

  1. BTS

  5. BLACKPINK
  6. SEVENTEEN
  7. EXO’s Baekhyun
  8. NCT 127
  9. TXT
  10. GOT7’s BamBam

Twitter also ranked the fastest-rising K-pop hashtags. Voting, including votes for the Billboard Music Awards, the Mnet Asian Music Awards, and the M2 X Genie Music Awards were among the top hashtags.

Here are the top 10 Kpop hashtags below.
