BTS's Jungkook has set a record as the first and fastest K-pop artist to achieve over 500,000 unit sales in the U.S. for three songs within a year. According to 'SK Pop Culture', a U.S. Hallyu media outlet, three tracks from Jungkook's debut solo album 'GOLDEN' have each sold over 500,000 units in the U.S. within a year, marking a historic moment for the 'Golden Maknae'.

Reportedly, the tracks 'Seven', '3D', and 'Standing Next to You' from 'GOLDEN' have each achieved this remarkable feat. This achievement is the first of its kind in the U.S., the world's largest music market, for different songs from a K-pop artist's album. Jungkook has become the fastest K-pop artist to accomplish this feat.

Previously, Jungkook had achieved over 500,000 unit sales in the U.S. with his solo songs 'Euphoria' and 'My Time' from BTS albums, and the collaboration track 'Left and Right', thus totaling six songs including 'Seven', '3D', and 'Standing Next to You'.

'Seven' particularly marked a record as the fastest K-pop solo song to surpass one million units in sales in just 71 days in the U.S., earning Platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). 'Euphoria' and 'Left and Right' also received Platinum certification for selling over one million units each.

Released last November, 'GOLDEN' achieved over 500,000 unit sales in the U.S. in less than a month, becoming the first K-pop solo artist album to do so in 2023. In its first week, it recorded the highest sales for a K-pop solo artist album in the U.S., exceeding 200,000 units.

'GOLDEN' debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 chart, tying for the highest position ever achieved by a K-pop solo artist. It debuted at number one on the 'Top Sales Albums' and 'Top Current Albums' charts, and made history by entering at number 15 on the 'Top Streaming Albums' chart, a first for a K-pop artist.

In addition to these accomplishments, 'GOLDEN' has been featured in several prestigious lists, including Rolling Stone's 'Best Music of 2023', MTV's 'Record-Breaking Albums of 2023', The New York Times' 'Best Albums of 2023', and Uproxx's 'Best Albums of 2023'.

Furthermore, 'GOLDEN' set new records on Spotify as the fastest Asian artist's studio album to reach two billion streams (pre-filtering) and the first and only K-pop solo album to surpass this milestone. On YouTube Music, it became the first and only album by a Korean solo artist to achieve one billion streams.

'GOLDEN' has also exceeded 2.7 million in cumulative physical album sales in 2023, making Jungkook the top-selling K-pop solo artist in terms of sales volume.
