South Korean boy band BTS have created history this week with their third studio album, Love Yourself: Tear.

The record makes BTS the first K-pop group to top the US Billboard 200 chart, and it’s the first foreign-language album to top the Billboard 200 in over 12 years; following Il Divo’s 2006 release Ancora.

Released May 18, Love Yourself: Tear sold 135,000 copies in the US in its first week, making it the second-biggest of 2018 in terms of first-week sales, just behind Migos’ Culture II.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in even took to Twitter to congratulate the group:

The record also pushed Post Malone’s album Beerbongs and Bentleys to #2, ending his three-week streak at the top, and also beat out Cardi B and J. Cole to take the top spot.

BTS have also broken their own chart record in Australia. Love Yourself: Tear has entered this week’s ARIA chart at #6, sandwiched between Ed Sheeran‘s Divide and Keith Urban‘s Graffiti U.
