Allkpop | Big Bang sells 10,000 albums in pre-sales, doubles Seo Taiji and TVXQ’s records


With Big Bang’s two year comeback drawing closer, it was recently reported that Big Bang set a new record in the most number of album pre-sales purchased, overtaking TVXQ’s 2008 record.

For the past week, music site Cyworld has been holding an online event whereby members can pre-purchase Big Bang’s new mini-album for 30 “acorns” (the site’s currency), which is to be released on February 24th.

The online site revealed that their event has sold about 10,000 albums in pre-sales in just six days, which is roughly double the record of Seo Taiji’s 5,084 pre-sale units back in 2008, as well as TVXQ’s 6,500 units during their 4th full album release in the same year.

What Seo Taiji, TVXQ, and Big Bang have in common within the results is that they were all making a comeback after a long wait. Seo Taiji’s 2008 album was his comeback after four years, while it was TVXQ’s two year comeback. Similarly, Big Bang’s comeback this year will mark their first album in two years and three months, and music associates are judging this to be the reason behind their extraordinary volume in album pre-sales.

Meanwhile, Big Bang will be meeting their fans once again through their three-day “2011 Big Show” concert starting from February 25th at the Seoul Olympic Gymnasium. The group is then set to reveal their tracks through SBS’s “Special Comeback Show” on the following 27th.
