Jungkook of BTS Achieves Historic Debut with ‘Golden’ Album, Selling an Astounding 2,147,389 Copies on Day One. He has surpassed the prior record for the highest first-week sales of a solo album, previously set by fellow BTS member V. This milestone represents the initial instance of a solo artist achieving this feat on the Hanteo Chart.
In a remarkable feat, BTS’s Jungkook has made history on the Hanteo Chart with his highly awaited solo album, “Golden.” Merely 24 hours following its release on November 3 at 1 pm KST, the album, featuring the title track “Standing Next to You,” not only gained immense popularity but also etched its name in the annals of history.
However, Jungkook’s record-breaking journey doesn’t end here. In a remarkable turn of events, he has succeeded in surpassing the previous record for the highest first-week sales of any solo album, all within the span of a single day. The former record was held by Jungkook’s fellow BTS member V, whose debut album “Layover” achieved 1,672,138 copies on its release day and 2,101,974 copies within the first week.
The phenomenal triumph of “Golden” serves as a testament to Jungkook’s widespread acclaim and the steadfast support of ARMY, the devoted fanbase of BTS.
