Hot off the back of their hashtag challenge, South Korean K-Pop sensation BTS have claimed a new Guinness World Record for the fastest time to reach one million followers on TikTok.
The band officially joined the platform on 25th September and word spread quickly, achieving one million followers in a record time of 3 hours and 31 minutes.
After 13 hours, the group had gained two million followers and over four million likes on their debut post. After 59 hours, less than two-and-a-half days after joining the platform, they reached three million fans.
The Guinness World Record achievement comes as the group launched the #CNSchallenge last month in over 40 countries and regions, including the U.K., U.S., France, Italy, and Germany.
The challenge, which took inspiration from the abbreviation of j-hope’s ‘Chicken Noodle Soup (feat. Becky G)’, invited TikTok users to dance to the beat of the song’s catchy chorus.

The ‘#CNSchallenge’ challenge is the second official collaboration between BTS and TikTok, with the first one being the ‘IDOL Challenge’ that took place last year.
