BTS back at number one in brand ranking as Jin returns, Jimin to release second album 'MUSE' with seven tracks

BTS is back at the top. The K-pop boy band reclaimed their leading position after slipping down the rankings while the members continue to serve in the military, instead of actively making music, endorsing brands, or engaging in other activities. However, in June, the oldest member, Jin, made his epic comeback, causing the brand ranking of the Dynamite singers to skyrocket. Earlier in May, Trot singer Lim Young Woong held the top spot, followed closely by girl group IVE and aespa with BTS sitting at number 7.

BTS members will come together again in 2025 with a renewed contract.
