BTS first topped the Oricon charts in June 2015 with its fourth Japanese single “For You.” The group has since topped the charts with its singles, “I Need U (Japanese Ver.),” “Run (Japanese Ver.) and “Blood, Sweats & Tears.”

The latest single album released in Japan consists of the Japanese versions of its hit tracks from the latest album “Love Yourself Seung Her,” “DNA” and “MIC Drop,” and a new Japanese original winter song “Crystal Snow.”
