K-pop group Seventeen have set another personal record for the pre-orders for their upcoming album.
According to album distribution company YG Plus. Seventeen’s “Face the Sun,” which is set to be released on May 27, have reached more than two million copies in pre-orders in Korea and abroad. “Face the Sun” earlier garnered 1.74 million copies in one week of pre-orders.
With the new album, Seventeen are expected to continue their “million seller” record for the six consecutive albums.
Since their third studio album “An Ode,” released in September 2019, Seventeen’s albums have reached one million copies each in sales including “Heng:garæ,” “Semicolon,” “Your Choice” and “Attacca.”
In particular, Seventeen made a reservation for the sixth consecutive million seller.Here, the single album ‘Double Million Seller’ (selling over 2 million copies) seems to be able to grab hold of the title.
“Face the Sun” is expected to give Seventeen the title “double-million seller.” The upcoming album has nine tracks including the lead single “Hot,” a song belonging to the hip-hop genre and shows Seventeen’s passionate identity.
Seventeen will hold a comeback show on May 27, which will be broadcast live on YouTube, Naver Now and Line Music.
Meanwhile, Seventeen will be embarking on a new world tour starting in June.
“Starting from Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul, Seventeen is coming to Carat all around the world with 12 arena shows in North America, an arena tour in Asia and six dome shows in Japan from November to December,” Pledis Entertainment announced on May 17.
