BTS Becomes 1st Artist To Receive Double Million Certification From Gaon
BTS has officially received Gaon Chart’s very first double-million certification!
At the beginning of 2018, the Korea Music Content Industry Association implemented a new certification system for album sales, song downloads, and online streaming. Starting with music released on or after January 1, 2018, Gaon Chart now certifies albums platinum once they reach 250,000 sales, while albums that have sold a million copies or more receive a “million” certification.
On October 11, Gaon Chart announced that BTS’s latest album “Love Yourself: Answer” had sold over 2 million copies, making the group the first—and so far, only—artist to receive an official double-million certification from Gaon.
Congratulations to BTS on their impressive achievement!
