BTS's V Sets Record as First Artist to Gain Over 2 Million First Week Sales for Solo Album

BTS's V has become the first artist to sell more than 2 million copies of his solo album (sales in the first week after the album's release).

According to data released on the 15th by Hanteo Chart, a domestic album sales statistics site, V's solo album "Layover", released on the 8th, sold a total of 2,101,974 copies as of the previous day, becoming a 'double million seller'.

With this, V set the record for the most initial releases of a K-pop solo album in history. He was also given the title of being the first artist to exceed 2 million copies in the first week, both as a group (BTS) and as a solo artist.

BTS's potential was also proven through his solo activities. So far, there are only 5 solo artists who have exceeded 1 million copies in the first week on the Hanteo Chart, with V, Jimin (FACE/1,454,223 copies), and Suga (D-DAY/1,277,218 copies) taking first to third place. In particular, these three albums immediately became million-sellers on the first day of release, demonstrating their enormous popularity.

Meanwhile, V will appear on KBS2's 'Music Bank', which will air at 5:15 pm today September 15.
