Ever since then, all of us already know that K-pop fans are definitely the best fans in the world, especially when you start to observe on how passionate they are in voting for different music shows and the endless support (maybe it physically, mentally, and financially) they give to their idols is really unbeatable. 

For the K-pop world, it is already natural for the fans to be so determined and eager to let their idols win in any music awards, charts, and shows because they wanted to pay back their idols' efforts with a successful comeback and one of the most popular music charts that every K-pop fandom is eyeing on is the World Albums Chart by Billboard.

And for Billboard who released their weekly World Albums Chart, a lot of K-pop fans reunited once they knew that three Korean groups and a soloist made it to the top 15. 

The first K-pop group that is included in the World Albums Chart is NCT 127, and what made it more surprising is they made it on the 1st spot for this category for the first time with their latest mini-album entitled "We Are Superhuman". 

SM Entertainment's newest boy group, NCT, has its sub-unit called NCT 127 that debuted last 2016 and ever since then, they continuously grab the hearts of many fans from all over the world with their modern and up-beat genre of songs. That's why there is no doubt that they really deserve the top spot.

While the second Korean group that is also in the World Album Chart is BTS, with their extended play named as "Map of the Soul: Persona". ARMY's are undeniably one of the best Korean fandoms out there since they made their idols on the Billboard's global chart at its 7th week now at the 2nd rank.

Another BTS entry for the chart is two of their albums, Love Yourself: Answer, on its 40th week at the 4th position and, Love Yourself: Tear, on its 54th week at rank 5.

On the other hand, Blackpink's extended play "Kill This Love" grabbed the 9th place on its 8th week on the chart. They are expected to be on the top 15, especially of their electrifying popularity in western countries like the United States.

For the last one, it is the EXO's Lay solo album named "Namanana" on the last spot of the chart at its 23rd week on the chart.

Congratulations on the K-pop idols and their ever-supportive fans. Fighting!
