 K-pop group BTS have bagged the top spot of the Billboard Hot 100 with their latest single, Life goes on.

Earlier this year, their disco-theme track Dynamite had topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
According to Billboard, BTS is the first duo or group in history to have two No.1 Hot 100 debut songs.
Life goes on is the lead single of BTS’ new album BE (Deluxe Edition) that has also topped the Billboard 200 chart.
The album shares the emotions and thoughts the band, comprising RM, Jin, Jimin, V, Jungkook, SUGA and j-hope, has felt during the pandemic.
The album carries the hopeful message that life goes on.
Recently, the group has been nominated for Best Pop/Duo Group Performance for the 63rd Grammy Awards that will be held on January 31, 2021.

S. Korea passes law to allow BTS to postpone military service
 
South Korea’s parliament on Tuesday passed a bill to allow globally recognised K-pop artists such as BTS to postpone their mandatory military service to age 30.
All able-bodied South Korean men aged between 18 and 28 must serve in the military for about two years as part of the country’s efforts to guard against North Korea. The amendment to the Military Service Act was designed to provide exceptions for K-pop megastars who improve the country’s cultural status and boost the economy. South Korea allows eligible students to defer their duties up to age 28 and has granted exemptions for high-profile classical musicians and athletes who won Olympic medals or a gold at the Asian Games, including Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min.
