Its third Japanese full-length album, "Face Yourself," released in April 2018, secured 78th place on the British chart.
"The Journey" also reached 7th place on the Official Album Downloads Chart and No. 41 on the Official Albums Sales Chart.
"Your Eyes Tell," a track that member Jungkook helped write, reached No. 12 on both the singles downloads chart and the singles sales chart.
Meanwhile, "The Journey" remained at the top of Japan's biggest music chart, Oricon, for the fourth day in a row, selling over 543,000 copies as of Saturday.
