The third album released in Japan by the group BTS has rewritten the first sales record of the release of KPop group's first week.

According to the Oricon Chart of Japan on April 12, 28,000 copies of the album "FACE YOURSELF", sold in Japan, were released at the first week of the release (April 2-8).

This is the highest number of first album sales (first period) released by Korean musicians in Japan.

The album 'Super Girl', released by Girls Group Kara in November 2011, had an initial record of 275,000, but BTS has broken the record for the first time in six years.
