JYJ Sells a Record-Breaking 520,000 Pre-Orders of The Beginning October 14, 2010
JYJ’s first album, The Beginning, has surpassed pre-orders of 520,000 cds.
JYJ’s distributor, Warner Music Korea, says that the production of more than “99,999 limited edition copies, 300,000 special edition copies and 220,000 regular edition copies” and supplying retailers were what caused the delay in the release.
JYJ was able to feel the explosion of interest from fans when they were preparing for the special pre-orders which has since sold out. They are still getting interest in the special pre-orders.
The general album debuted today and the special editions will be released on October 18th.
Warner Music went on to say that, “JYJ who has 520,000 copies just in pre-orders, will give the boost that the sluggish music market needs.”
These boys just keep getting more and more amazing. They’ve sold out their Seoul showcase in 15 minutes, and it looks like they could possibly sell a million copies!
