It also added, “The BTS member becomes the first South Korean soloist to hit No 1 on the Hot 100 with Like Crazy. On the Billboard 200, FACE opens at No 2 — earning the second-largest debut week of 2023 after Morgan Wallen’s One Thing at a Time.”

RM also took to his Instagram Stories to share a photo of the Hot 100 top 10 rankings. He added, “I’m proud” and tagged Jimin. RM is also the co-writer of Jimin’s song Like Crazy. J-Hope also shared Billboard’s post adding a bunch of purple heart emojis. He wrote, “This is history..Congrats” and also tagged Jimin.

Jimin also hosted Weverse Live

Hours later, Jimin hosted a live session on Weverse and interacted with his fans. The singer said, “Since it felt so unreal, I didn’t know how to express myself through text so I turned the live on.. I wanted to talk to you guys in person. The PDnim who helped me make the album was crying.. people were contacting me to congratulate me..Honestly, it’s possible because I’m (in) Bangtan and because ARMY you all are there.”

Jimin also added, “The members said that it’d be nice if you make a song like that.. that’s how I started working on the album after coming back from the US. My father just called me a while ago and said he’s proud of me. When I first made my father listen to the album he said he was upset on listening to it.” When J-Hope in the comments section asked the reason, Jimin said, “I don’t know, he said the content of the album seemed sad.”

Jimin also spoke about RM, “Namjoonie hyung also called me.. thank you to everyone. I got complimented by the leader hyung with, ‘I’m proud (of you)’.” He also added. “Thank you so much for today and I love you. Thank you. I’ll work even harder. I’ll try more to be even better. I’ll become (someone) that you can be proud that I’m your artist.”

“Since I didn’t really think much of charts and such end results so I’m even more grateful… I’m not sure how to express myself. Thank you to everyone who worked hard,” Jimin signed off. Last month, Jimin unveiled his first-ever solo album Face. The album comprises the songs–Face-off, Interlude: Dive, Like Crazy, Alone, Set Me Free Pt.2, and Like Crazy (English Version).
