BTS: "MAP OF THE SOUL: PERSONA" becomes the best-selling album of all history in South Korea in just a few hours
BTS just broke a historic record in just a few hours!
On April 12, the men's group made their comeback with the release of a brand new album entitled "MAP OF THE SOUL: PERSONA".
This comeback already allows boys to beat many records in South Korea, but the BTS album has mostly achieved something historic with sales out of the ordinary!
This April 12, and in just a few hours, more than 1.4 million copies of this album have been sold, 1,479,930 to be exact according to Hanteo!
This represents above all the best sales score in a day for a Korean artist, but not that.
Indeed, with these 1.4 million copies sold, "MAP OF THE SOUL: PERSONA" became the best-selling album in the history of Hanteo, making it the opus of a Korean artist the best seller of all history, and this in just a few hours!
To give you a comparison tool and you can understand the ever rising popularity of BTS, all three games in the 'LOVE YOURSELF' saga are currently between 1 million and 1.2 million copies sold.
In the space of barely six hours since its release, the new album of the group has therefore pulverized the sales figures of his previous albums, crazy numbers and never seen in the entire history of music in South Korea.
Congratulations to BTS!
