Specifically, while Jimin’s most memorable independent collection ‘FACE’ continues to set records, as of May 20, the most recent record was abbreviated by the majority, 58 days after its release, the most limited time frame among all K-pop solo artist albums to reach 500 million. It made Spotify’s streaming history and broke through.
