Who is the most popular overall 48
Taehyung (13) 27%
Jimin (5) 10%
Jungkook (30) 63%
So I've seen this being debated for years now and in my opinion the ranking has also changed throughout the years so I wanted to give my opinion on how bts popularity ranks globally as well as in Korea as we kick off 2021. This is based on all the end of year date that came out at the end of 2021. Feel free to disagree respectfully. If you're a Stan just coming to be offended then please don't interact.
2. jimin and Taehyung
When I say Asia I mainly mean Japan, China and Korea where I think Taehyung ranks first
Jungkook is first overall based on pretty much every global chart I've seen
Jimin is a solid third but is still leagues away in terms of popularity for anyone that comes after these three. I know a lot of people put Jimin at number 1 in Korea and I do think him and V are close there but I think Taehyung slightly edged him out in popularity there in 2020.
