Just in the first week of June ‘Alive’ sold 280,000 copies while the special edition ‘Still Alive’ sold 120,000 copies, bringing the total number of sales to be 400,000 copies.
Many are expecting Big Bang to pass the half million mark in album sales this year. A KMP Holding, album distributor representative said, “Big Bang distributed approximately 420,000 copies of their album and most already sold out in the market. For the first half of this year Big Bang is the definite winner and we expect them to pass the 500,000 sales mark.”
Big Bang is doing even better out of Korea. As of June 15, their current viewed numbers for 'Fantastic Baby' and 'Blue' are each respectively on 27,756,000 and 23,348,000 views. They are currently number one and two in the YouTube ranking of most viewed K-pop music videos so far this year.
