Jung Kook becomes first Korean solo act to score two Top 5 singles in UK

BTS star Jung Kook made Official Chart history today as he became the first Korean solo artist to secure two Top 5 singles in the UK.

Jeon Jung-kook, the main vocalist of BTS achieves the feat as the Jack Harlow collaboration 3D lands at Number 5 on the Official Singles Chart this week. This follows the success of Jung Kook's debut solo single, Seven, entering the chart at Number 3 this year; also making history at the time.

3D and Seven are both lifted from Jung Kook's first-ever solo album, GOLDEN, announced for a November 3 release earlier this week.

As the first Korean soloist to net two Top 5 songs on the Official Singles Chart, Jung Kook steams ahead of bandmates j-hope and Jimin's solo successes. j-hope's single, on the street, became the first-ever solo BTS Top 40 in March 2023 (37), while Jimin's earned Top 40 tracks with Set Me Free Pt. 2 (30) and Like Crazy (8) this year.

Meanwhile, SUGA has seen the most success on the Official Albums Chart so far. His 2020 album, D-2, peaked inside the Top 10 under his Agust D moniker (7).

As a group, BTS boasts four Top 10 singles to date: 2020's Dynamite (3) and Life Goes On (10), plus 2021's Butter (3) and Coldplay collaboration My Universe (3).

To date, the only other Korean soloist to have secured two Top 10 singles in the UK is PSY.

Congratulations Jungkook!
