This milestone makes “Sweet Night” the first Korean OST to achieve such a feat.

V was actively involved in the creation of the song, from writing the lyrics to choosing the right instruments to match the specific sound he had in mind. In an interview with Rolling Stone, he mentioned that the song started from him feeling that he “really wanted a good night’s sleep.” Originally, it was supposed to be part of V’s mixtape, but he decided to release it as part of the OST for Itaewon Class.

The song has been well-received by fans, with V saying that he created it with his fans in mind, to help them heal when they listen to it. It’s no surprise that the song has achieved such massive success, given the widespread popularity of V’s talent as a musician.

Aside from his work with BTS, V has also released solo music, including the tracks “Winter Bear” and “Scenery,” which he wrote and produced. He has received praise for his musical abilities and has even been called a “genius” by some industry professionals.
