BTS: The Most Beautifl Moment in Life Part 2!

Hello
Annyeoung
Konnichiwa
Ni hao


I thought this week I would continue on from last week's K-pop post and do about the second part of BTS' most beautiful moment in life series, if you haven't check out The Most Beautiful Moment in Life Part 1.
I mentioned in last week's post that in Korean the album is known as Hwayang-Yeonhwa and is often shortened to HYYH, part 2 is the group's 4th mini album and if you haven't guessed it's the 2nd album from their 2 part project series.

In September 2015 BTS announced that they would be making a comeback with a prologue trailer that contained a track from their upcoming mini album.

Within the trailer they also announced a domestic concert from November 27th - 29th and announced the concert would be called The Most Beautiful Moment in Life: On Stage, where they would unveil their comeback single, #화양연화 ranked first in the trending topics worldwide on twitter.

On November 17th another animated trailer was released with a new track titled Never Mind.

Just 2 days later it on November 26th it was reported that HYYH pt.2 pre-orders had surpassed 150,000 copies, with the pre-orders not just being within South Korea but Internationally also. The Music Video for Run was released on the 29th of November, the MV received nearly 2 million views in less than 24 hours beating both I NEED U and Dope. The video for run is around 7 and a half minutes long and it's suggested that both I NEED U and Run are connected and tells a sad story for the group.

BTS' first comeback stage with Run was at The Mnet Asian Music Awards(MAMA awards), their music show promotions started in December. November 30th the mini album was released and like part 1 was released in 2 different colours, blue and peach.
All 9 tracks on the mini album charted on the Gaon and World Digital Charts, the mini album saw success internationally as well as South Korea, it was no.1 on both the Gaon Weekly and Monthly Album Charts, no.15 on Japan's Oricon Album Chart & no.1 on USA's Billboard Top Heatseekers Chart. The album also topped the Billboard World Albums Chart and stayed at the no.1 spot for a total of 4 weeks making BTS the first K-pop act to have the same album spend more than 1 week at no.1, the album also charted at no.171 on the Billboard 200 which was high for an act that was not signed under either YG or SM Entertainment. HYYH also charted at no.5 on Gaon's Yearly Chart for 2015, Run also won the group 5 music show awards.
The Group also participated in the making of the album again with Run being penned by Rap Monster, Suga, V, Jungkook and J-hope, another 4 tracks saw the members participate on the album with Never Mind being wrote and produced by Suga, Whalien 52 being written by Rap Monster, Suga and J-hope, Ma City written by Rap Monster, Suga and J-hope, 뱁새(Silver Spoon) written by Rap Monster and 고엽(Dead Leaves) being written by Suga, Jungkook, Rap Monster, J-hope and Suga also produced the track.
S.Korea Gaon Sales: 351,413+
Japan Oricon Sales: 14,051+
US Billboard Sales: 5,000+

Like Part 1 the album is set out like a book and with this one I got the blue version of the album which has pretty flowers, like part 1 there's more amazing pictures with the members out being young and having fun.
