This is Korea only.

Isn't Korea their main market anyway? Doubt they'll be doing same numbers elsewhere.

Obviously not, but they're doing 240k in the US which is quite good.

So 1.3 million in the first 3.5 hours of the first day and 700k for the rest of the days (4 days and 20.5 hours)  :skull:

 

Great numbers but they are really frontloaded

I'd rather be ''frontloaded'' than not be able to sell even a fraction of this amount.

Yeah I agree

Amazing numbers but I really thought it would be doing more considering the unbelievable numbers they pulled in like 3 hours

 

Still, obviously great numbers :clap3:

If the stans already pre-ordered 3 million, that's already bulk right there. They're lucky to keep it going.

Do they really have this many fans or is it just fans buying multiple copies? 

If their fans can make them sell out stadiums, break YouTube records, have a song that's Top 3 on Global Spotify, etc. why is this surprising?

 

And I'm sure some of the obsessed ones buy multiple copies, but so do fans of pop girls.

All kpop albums are frontloaded because fans pre-order physical albums, which are billed as collectors items.

 

These aren't even the real numbers anyway so it's kinda pointless. They're probably looking at 3 million first week, but we won't know because the charts are monthly.

That is how J-pop and K-pop acts sell. They won't sell more than 3 million by the end. Very front loaded

This is normal for the industry. They've gotten 500k in pure physical catalog sales in the first 3 months of the year. I don't think their last album has left the bb200 top 50 and that was released in august.

U do realize that those 700K would have made it the best selling album in Korea (and maybe even WW) for all of 2019 right?

You better learn about BTS.

their last 2 albums debuted at 1Million and double their sales during their chart run in Korea.

i don’t think any of their last 4 albums has left the Korean chart yet...

 

smh
