According to Gaon, "Crazy In Love" sold a total of 335,610 copies in the previous month. It is one of the only four albums to reach this sales figure in September.
Considering that ITZY's full album was dropped on Sept. 24, the tracking period of sales was only seven days. Despite the short time, "Crazy In Love" still managed to debut within the Top 5 of the Gaon Album Chart.
In addition to this, "Crazy In Love" becomes ITZY's fifth album to land on the Gaon Album Chart, following "IT'z ICY," "IT'z ME," "Not Shy," and "GUESS WHO."
And among these five albums, "Crazy In Love" is the JYP girl group's first album to sell over 300,000 copies on the Gaon Chart, so far.
When the Gaon sales of these five albums are combined, ITZY's overall sales have reached more than 1.2 million copies.
With that, ITZY has now become an official million seller! The quintet becomes the latest JYP idol group to sell over one million copies, following Stray Kids who also just recently earned the title with "NOEASY."
To celebrate the new achievement, MIDZYs (ITZY's fans) took to Twitter to congratulate the girls. Along with their congratulatory message, fans are using the hashtag "#ITZY_MillionSellers."
As of writing, "#ITZY_MillionSellers" is trending on Twitter in Malaysia at No. 7. It is also one of the trending topics under the K-pop category on the platform with 10,000 tweets.
Congratulations to ITZY on becoming a new million seller!
