BTS announced their extended vacation, but it does not mean they stopped ruling over the surveys and awards nights already.

After years of non-stop performances and appearances, BTS started recharging as they prepare for a new phase of their reign as a K-pop supergroup. Their label, though BIG HIT Music’s official Twitter account, said that the members would go back to South Korea to enjoy the holidays with their family.


But even if they are away from the spotlight, they still topped the recent survey conducted by Gallup Korea.

BTS Becomes Most Influential Individuals In South Korea

Since 2007, Gallup Korea has continuously launched surveys to hail the Most Influential Individuals in different categories yearly. This allows Korean citizens to vote for their favorite celebrities and artists who influence them greatly.

For this year, the organization held the pools in three different periods starting July. They created the first poll from July 8 to August 27, the second was from September 2 to October 4, and the third and last one was from November 5 to 28.

After less than a month, they released the results and shared what more than 5,000 fans had chosen this year.

BTS unsurprisingly topped the list after Korean citizens under the age of 30 voted for them, making 2021 their fourth year since scoring the Best Artist of the Year title. Meanwhile, those over the age of 40 selected trot singer Lim Young Woong as their favorite artist.

The K-pop group also got the Song of the Year after people under the age of 50 selected Butter as the best song of 2021. Those who are in their 50s and above selected Lim Young Woong and Young Tak.

Other BTS songs also appeared on the list, including Dynamite and Permission to Dance – the latter recently reached a new milestone for the group.

BTS’ Permission To Dance Reaches Milestone on YouTube

On Monday, BTS’ most recent song, Permission to Dance, officially became the group’s 16th music video to reach the 400 million mark on YouTube.


It follows several hit songs made by the K-pop stars: DNA, Fire, Dope, Fake Love, MIC DROP (Steve Aoki Remix), Blood Sweat & Tears, IDOL, Save Me, Boy With Luv, Not Today, Dynamite, Spring Day, Butter, ON (Kinetic Manifesto Film: Come Prima,” and Life Goes On.

The new record proved that the music video only took five months and 10 days to join BTS’ milestones this year.
