On April 19th, the Hanteo charts revealed that Busker Busker's first album, which was released on the 29th of March, has sold 50,476 copies (as of 18th April). As a surprising result, the overwhelming demand has led to the album's need to be reprinted.
Last year, there were only 15 groups in Korea that managed to sell over 50,000 copies of their album, with most of these being established idol groups such as Super Junior, Girls' Generation, TVXQ, JYJ and Big Bang, so for a rookie band to have such results is a great accomplishment.
Busker Busker's popularity has rocked the music industry. Their title track, "Cherry Blossom Endings," has taken the top spot on the Billboard Kpop charts and other music charts. The have also managed to stay on top of the Mnet daily charts for 12 days running, even winning last week's Mnet M! Countdown.
Also, Busker Busker will be holding their solo concert, "The Bus of Youth," on the 5th and 6th of May at the Baekjunyeonginyeom Hall in Yonsei University.
