DKZ (DONGKIZ) Goes From 1,200 To Over 100,000 1st-Week Sales After Jaechan’s “Semantic Error” Success
DKZ (formerly known as DONGKIZ)’s album sales are skyrocketing after Jaechan‘s rise to fame!
Earlier this year, Jaechan starred in the hit BL drama “Semantic Error,” drawing increased attention to DKZ and their music. The resulting surge in his popularity belatedly catapulted several of DKZ’s past songs up the Korean music charts, including “CRAZY NIGHT” and “LUPIN.”
Last week, DKZ made their first comeback since the massive success of the drama, and the results speak for themselves. According to Hanteo Chart, the group’s new single album “CHASE EPISODE 2. MAUM” sold an impressive total of 107,965 copies in the first week of its release (April 12 to 18).
In contrast, DONGKIZ’s previous single album “CHASE EPISODE 1. GGUM” sold only 1,244 copies in its first week last year. Before their latest release, the group’s highest first-week sales record of their career was 1,482 (for their 2021 single album “Youniverse”)—a record that has been completely obliterated by “CHASE EPISODE 2. MAUM.”
Congratulations to DKZ on their successful comeback and amazing growth!
