Big Hit, which has specialized corporate systems in each field through division of each business sector, has shown high growth compared to the previous year in the platform sector, increasing the portion of its sales. By region, the North American market has shown great results in terms of sales volume and growth rate.
“The year 2019 was a year when Big Hit pushed for upgrading its corporate structure, including the establishment of a multi-label system, but continued to expand sales and maintain high growth rates at the same time,” a Big Hit official said. “BTS is making unprecedented achievements as a Korean artist, and the expansion of its intellectual property rights (IP) such as the growth of TOMORROW X TOGETHER and GFRIEND and securing strong trainee pipelines will be combined with various corporate models.”
