Congrats to BTS!

BTS has broken the record for pre-orders for their new album, Map of the Soul: 7. This is the highest number of pre-orders that BTS has hit ever according to Big Hit Entertainment.

“3.42M this is crazy. I wonder what other records they will make after the Chinese New Year.”


“3.42M in pre-orders? I know I say this every time they make a comeback but how is this even possible? There’s still a lot of time left before the pre-order time ends! I can’t wait for their new song to be released tomorrow!”


“3.42M is this even possible? I’m so happy but at the same time I’m worried now that I probably won’t be able to get a ticket to their concert.”


“3.42M in pre-orders… the current BTS wins the past BTS.”


“3.42M in pre-orders…I was shocked with 2.7M from the Persona album…Only BTS can break these kinds of records….I’m so proud of our boys this morning!”



“3.42M? Is this real life? ARMYs you guys are amazing! This is the biggest record of all time!”
