Jungkook Faces Crucial Issues About “Seven” Solo Album MV – What Happened?
BTS’s powerful vocalist, Jeon Jungkook, has faced a slight but crucial issue following the release of “Seven” (ft. Latto) solo album and its MV.
On July 16, the Korean media outlet Herald Economy stated that although Jungkook’s “Seven” solo album had been breaking records in Kpop history, a slight issue occurred to the MV and performance video.
According to the report, the credits for “Seven” MV and performance video had not been properly registered using Jungkook’s name. This mistake has affected the MV’s YouTube score, which showed 0 score on Billboard Hot 100.
Although Jungkook rose to the #3 position of the rank after Taylor Swift and The Weeknd, his score for YouTube and Deezer was 0, according to data accumulated by the website KWORB.
If this issue with the credits persists, it will impact Jungkook’s Billboard score aggregation period, potentially leading to a significant drop in his Billboard Hot 100 ranking
Fans immediately realized about the issue. They took this matter to multiple social media platforms, demanding HYBE to properly credit Jungkook for the “Seven” MV and performance video. They are particularly concerned about the issue because this is not the first time that failed credits happened to Jungkook.
A similar situation previously occurred with Jungkook’s World Cup theme song, “Dreamers”. After its release, the MV was mistakenly classified under the “Sports” category on YouTube, which did not contribute to Jungkook’s YouTube score, yielding a score of zero.
While HYBE then revised the issue 10 hours later, it affected Jungkook’s chart score, especially knowing that the first 24 hours after release was extremely crucial.
Jungkook has ZERO digital points on YouTube bc Hybe/BTS r listed as Artists for SEVEN MV and Perf. videos, instead of JUNG KOOK. Fix this issue ASAP or it will affect YouTube Top Artist and Billboard charts!!@BIGHIT_MUSIC @TeamYouTube @scooterbraun @SB_Projects @HYBEOFFICIALtwt pic.twitter.com/PLh3EAreT1— jk vids 🎥 (slow) (@jjklve) July 16, 2023

BIGHIT Releases Official Statements on the Solo Album Issue
As a response to fans’ concerns, HYBE releases an official statement addressing the credits issues for Jungkook’s “Seven” solo album MV and performance video.
On July 16, JTBC released exclusive coverage, reporting a statement from BIGHIT MUSIC regarding the credits issue. According to the report, BIGHIT officially clarified to JTBC that all the “Seven” MV and performance video credits had been properly registered under Jungkook’s name. Therefore, there have been no significant issues with YouTube’s data aggregation.
“The music and performance videos of ‘Seven’ had been correctly registered under Jungkook’s name in the YouTube system. Also, there had been no issues with the YouTube data count as well.”BIGHIT to JTBC.
At the same time, BIGHIT also questioned the credibility of KWORB. Fans have been relying on its data as a website that integrates overseas music charts. However, BIGHIT pointed out that KWORB is not an official website. Therefore, the company believed that it was unreasonable to rely on this unofficial website’s score only.

Meanwhile, Jungkook’s “Seven” MV has now become the biggest 24-hour debut of any MV released by a male Kpop artist this year.
