However, two years after that “boom”, ‘Goose Goose Duck’ (‘GGD’) has surpassed the maximum peak of players that the InnerSloth LLC title managed to reach ever.
It has been reported that ‘Goose Goose Duck’ has reached a maximum of 640 thousand players in the last 30 days, surpassing the 438 thousand that ‘Among Us’ managed to reap in August 2020, and all thanks to a member of BTS.

A powerful community
From experience we know that the “K-pop community” is quite powerful because in numbers they are many but in a matter of supporting their favorite artists and when uniting to achieve something, can be devastating. One only has to remember that occasion in which this sector began a boycott against a Donald Trump rally in Tulsa.
That time, of the 19,000 seats available for the “Trump supporters” meeting, it was reported that just over 6,000 were occupied. The reason? Young people, mostly K-Pop fans who organized, who bought seats for “leave alone” the then President of the United States.
If they decided to organize themselves to play ‘GGD’ all together, they would surely dethrone games like ‘Overwatch 2’, which registers 790,000 players per day. For now, They have defeated one of the most recognized titles of 2020during the first year of the pandemic.
