Seventeen Beats BTS and “FML” become the best-selling K-pop album on day one of release
SEVENTEEN is definitely back!
On April 24, Seventeen released their 10th mini-album, FML, and set a new record by holding the highest sales record on the first day of the album’s release alone.
The sources said that “FML” sold approximately 3,998,300 copies in less than 24 hours after its release at 6:00 p.m. Friday, based on data from Hanteo Chart, a leading local music sales tracker.
The number marks the highest first-week sales of an album in K-pop history, with the number considered a key metric for measuring an artist’s popularity.
As a result, Seventeen’s comeback album “FML” now becomes the best-selling album in Hanteo’s history of any Korean group on the first day. The record was previously set by BTS with “Map of the Soul: 7,” which sold just over 3.3 million units on its first day.
Not only did Seventeen break the all-time record for best-selling album for first-day sales, they also broke the record for first-week sales in a single day!
“FML” sends a positive message not to give up even in the most difficult times. It consists of six tracks led by two lead singles – “F*ck My Life” and “Super”.
