US microblogging and social networking website Tumblr just released its 2019 review report on the K-pop industry. Boy band BTS topped the chart for "most talked-about" idol group, while its seven members claimed the first seven spots on the K-pop stars chart, starting with Jeon Jung-kook at No.1 for his second year. 

This is the third time that BTS has topped the Tumblr charts. The site generates the results through its "Fandometrics" calculations, which compiles tag data and posts about K-pop stars and groups on its website to understand how much they are talked about.

The news of BTS's feat quickly spread to China's Twitter-like Sina Weibo. Members of the Chinese ARMY (the name for BTS fans) took to social media to express their excitement. 

 "That is BTS! Every member is on the chart!" wrote netizen Youyu on Sina Weibo.
