BTS’s “Love Yourself: Answer” Officially Sets New Record For Highest Album Sales In Gaon Chart History
BTS has written Gaon Chart history once again!
According to Gaon Chart’s year-end chart rankings for 2018, BTS has broken their own record for the highest sales of any one album in Gaon history. The group took first place on Gaon’s 2018 Album Chart with their repackaged album “Love Yourself: Answer,” which has sold a record-breaking 2,197,808 copies since its release on August 24, 2018.
BTS first broke g.o.d’s 2001 Gaon Chart record for highest album sales back in 2017 with their mini album “Love Yourself: Her,” which sold a total of 1,493,443 copies in that year alone. The group has since gone on to repeatedly break their own record, most recently racking up an impressive 1,849,537 million sales for their third studio album “Love Yourself: Tear” (which took second place on Gaon’s year-end 2018 Album Chart.)
Last year, BTS became the first artist to receive an official double-million certification under Gaon Chart’s new system for “Love Yourself: Answer,” just three months after receiving Gaon’s first-ever million certification for “Love Yourself: Tear.”
Congratulations to BTS!
