Update: TREASURE Surpasses 150,000 Stock Pre-Orders For Debut Single, Breaking YG’s Record For Rookie Groups
Updated August 3 KST:
TREASURE’s debut single has reached 150,000 stock pre-orders!
On August 3, YG Entertainment announced that it was decided last weekend that 50,000 more copies of TREASURE’s “The First Step: Chapter One” will be produced.
A source from YG says this follows a surge in stock pre-orders from Japan and China. They added that on top of orders from Korea, Japan, and China, they’re also receiving requests for albums from many other regions, including the United States and countries in Southeast Asia.
The number of stock pre-orders is the amount of album stock that is produced prior to the album’s release. This number is the estimated demand calculated based on various factors including how many albums were pre-ordered by fans.
Even before their debut, YG Entertainment’s new boy group TREASURE is already making history at their agency!
On July 31, YG Entertainment announced that TREASURE’s upcoming debut single “The First Step: Chapter One” had surpassed 100,000 stock pre-orders in just two days.
Not only is the feat impressive on its own, but it also marks the highest number of stock pre-orders achieved by any YG Entertainment rookie artist to date, indicating the high level of interest in the group’s long-awaited debut.
TREASURE, a 12-member group that was formed on YG Entertainment’s 2018-2019 survival show “YG Treasure Box,” will be the agency’s first new group since BLACKPINK‘s debut four years ago. The group is currently gearing up to make their debut on August 7.
Congratulations to TREASURE on their amazing achievement!
