‘Christmas Tree’ is number one on Melon HOT TRACKS Ballard and is charting on all Korean charts. V is presently ranked number one on Melon Daily’s Male Solo Artist Chart and number three altogether!

n this wonderful, calm ballad for Choi Woong (Choi Woo Sik) and Gook Yeon Seo (Kim Da Mi) starrer ‘Our Beloved Summer,’ BTS weaves magic and beautiful melancholy in the main theme song for the drama.
