BTS album breaks monthly sales record
“Love Yourself: Tear” ranked No. 1 on Gaon’s May album chart and beat a record last set by ballad singer Jo Sung-mo when he released his third album in September 2000.
Before “Love Yourself: Tear” came out on May 18, 1.5 million copies were already preordered, and a million copies were sold in the first week after release.
BTS plans to hold an event with fans on Wednesday to celebrate their fifth anniversary.
