BTS’s “Map Of The Soul: Persona” Is The 1st Album To Record 2 Million Sales On Hanteo Chart

BTS has set another impressive record!

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!

I never got into BTS, but I still get pretty heated when people try to discredit them like.. just because they're the it groupof this generation doesn't mean they aren't hardworking. I can't imagine how busy their schedules must be. Congrats to them they deserve it and more.

i love that first pic. hoseok looks hella good but also like he's been crying all night, jin and tae look photoshopped in afterwards, jungkook looks like he's barely out of a coke bender, and yoongi looks like he'll be ripping jimin's head off soon. bless namjoon, dude looks flawless.

I know him mostly from Handmaid's Tale.

I haven't made myself check that show yet! I looked up his filmography. The only thing I've probably seen him in is The Social Network and I have zero recollection of his role.

I like the show but it's rough to watch, especially the second season.

I fucking loved this part. Yoongi was a scene-stealer!
