V released “Sweet Night” at 6 p.m. KST on March 13 as the 12th OST of the drama. As of March 14, the song topped the iTunes Top Songs chart in 77 countries around the world including the U.S., U.K, France, Canada, Italy, Brazil, Russia, Portugal, Belgium, Indonesia, Denmark, Argentina, Australia, and many more.
This is the second most number of No. 1’s on the iTunes Top Songs chart by a Korean solo artist, following Psy’s “Gangnam Style” that topped the charts in 86 countries. V is also the second Korean solo artist to top the iTunes Top Songs chart in the U.K. following Psy, and “Sweet Night” is the first Korean drama OST to top the iTunes Top Songs chart in the U.S. and U.K.
The song is especially meaningful to V as his close friend Park Seo Joon currently stars in “Itaewon Class.”
Congratulations to V!
