Previously, their album “Map of the Soul: Persona” recorded 1,479,930 sales on the first day alone, surpassing the group’s first week sales record in one day.
On April 16, the fifth day since its release, it surpassed 2 million physical album sales as recorded by Hanteo Chart.
With 77,295 copies sold on April 16 as of 3:20 p.m. KST, the current total is 2,000,274 copies sold.
With a couple of days left until the one-week mark since its release, the album has nearly doubled the previous Hanteo first week sales record of 1,003,527, which BTS set with “Love Yourself: Tear” last year.
This also makes the “Map of the Soul: Persona” the first album in Hanteo Chart history to surpass 2 million sales. In 2017, “Love Yourself: Her” was the first album to surpass 1 million sales as recorded by Hanteo Chart.
Previously, “Love Yourself: Answer” was BTS’s first album to surpass 2 million sales on Gaon Chart, which records physical album shipments, but this is the first time that an album has surpassed 2 million as recorded by Hanteo Chart.
Congratulations to BTS on another impressive record!
