BTS Jimin hits it big with Face

According to sources in the music industry, Jimin, a member of the globally renowned boy group BTS, has broken the record for the highest first-week album sales by a solo K-pop artist with his debut solo album titled “Face.” The album sold over 1.45 million copies in the week following its release last Friday, as reported by Hanteo Chart, a leading local tracker of album sales. This surpasses the previous record set by Korean trot singer Lim Young-woong with his first full-length album, “Im Hero,” last year.

In addition, “Face” also achieved the distinction of becoming the first album from a K-pop soloist to sell over 1 million copies on its release day, according to the same market tracker. Jimin’s success has also extended to Japan, where his six-track album topped Oricon’s weekly combined album ranking with 231,501 points, setting the record for the biggest first-week sales by a soloist in Japan this year by selling 225,000 copies, based on data from Oricon.

Finally, the success of “Face” is not limited to Asia, with Jimin expected to achieve a high ranking on the Billboard 200 main albums chart set to be unveiled on Monday.
