In addition to recently being crowned the Most Retweeted Artist on Twitter, topping the Oricon chart with the release of their Japanese single and setting new K-Pop records on the Billboard World Album Chart, BTS has once again proven their popularity by completely selling out their album, photo book and concert DVD in just a matter of two hours.
On March 16, the reserve orders for their photo book “NOW3 BTS in Chicago <Dreaming Days>,” which is set to be released on April 5, went on sale and in two hours, was completely sold out of the 20,000 orders that were in stock. They added 25,000 more orders and that consequently sold out as well, which adds up to 45,000 copies.
However, this is not the first time that BTS has shown this sort of popularity. Last November of 2015, they completely sold out of their concert DVD “2015 BTS Live <The Most Beautiful Moment in Life on stage>” upon its release as well. After selling out of the reserve orders, they added more copies but those sure enough were sold out as well.
BTS recently announced on their official website that a special album will be released on May 2, entitled “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life: Young Forever” and an epilogue concert will be held on May 7 and 8 at the Olympic Park Gymnastic Arena in Seoul.
