BTS' 'Face Yourself' just surpassed KARA's 'Super Girl' as the fastest-selling album in Japan! In November 2011, KARA had achieved the record of being the fastest-selling album in Japan by selling 275,000 copies within a week of its release. The record remained unbroken for 6 years and 4 months until BTS came forward with their 3rd album 'Face Yourself'. According to the Oricon chart, BTS' 'Face Yourself' has sold 282,000 copies within a week of its release.
BTS commented through Oricon Chart: "Our 3rd full album 'Face Yourself' has placed #1 on Oricon Weekly Chart. We are happy to make the best record for international hip-hop artist and share such delightful news to our ARMYs ahead of our fan meeting in Japan. We're also working hard to prepare for our official fanmeeting in Japan on the 18th, so please look forward to it."
Congrats to BTS for their achievement!
