K-pop boy band ASTRO set a new personal record when they sold nearly 282,000 copies of their new album “All Yours.” 

According to Korea’s Hanteo Chart, ASTRO’s album “All Yours” garnered sales of 281,952 copies in the first week of release from April 6 to 12, the group’s highest since debuting in 2016. This is also higher than the first-week sales of the boy band’s last album “Gateway,” which had 71,450 copies. 

The first-week sales of “All Yours” put ASTRO in second place among all albums released by male groups in 2021 and fourth among all albums released this year. 

“All Yours” also topped Hanteo’s weekly physical album chart for the period April 5 to 11 with sales of 279,051 copies. 

Based on Hanteo Chart, “All Yours” sold 135,075 on the first day on April 6 followed by 53,662 on April 7;  48,401 on April 8; 25,264 on April 9; 9,301 on April 10; 7,348 on April 11; and 2,901 on April 12. 

“All Yours” is ASTRO’s second studio album in over two years following the release of “All Light” in January 2019. 

On Gaon Music Chart, which also tracks album and song sales, “All Yours” placed first on the weekly retail album chart with sales of 92,064 copies for the period April 4 to 10. 

ASTRO is composed of singer-actor Cha Eun-woo, Moon Bin, Rocky, Sanha, MJ and Jinjin. During their media showcase for the album, they were asked what was their goal for their comeback. 

“I wish we could place first on the music show program since the title track is ‘One,’” said Cha Eun-woo, referring to the carrier track of the album, according to Hanteo.  

Jinjin said, “We are releasing a studio album in two years and three months. Please send us lots of love and support because we prepared so hard for this album.”
