SEVENTEEN is back once again, and they have more than just a new mini-album to prove it.
SEVENTEEN released their seventh mini-album Heng:garae on June 22 at 6 pm. Not long after, it soared to the top of overseas iTunes Album Chart in 27 countries, including Brazil, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, and the Philippines.
The mini-album also made it to #1 in ten countries on the Apple Music charts.
What’s especially impressive was SEVENTEEN’s first-place ranking on the iTunes Worldwide Albums Chart, proving that the group is not only a domestic sensation but that they’re loved and appreciated by fans all over the world.
Some of the mini-album’s success is due to the upbeat, positive message in the lyrics of its title track “Left & Right,” which fans have been highly anticipating.
Don’t forget when you’re at the starting line, keep your eyes wide open and your chin up…Call all our friends, I’m’a’ celebrate. No one can stop us, we party today.

However, this success was also somewhat predicted by how well the mini-album sold before its official release. In just the first two days after pre-orders began, the mini-album sold over 500,000 copies, putting the record well on its way to over 1 million unit sales.
SEVENTEEN is continuing to show just globally popular they are, as with each successive comeback they chart higher, in more places, and for more extended periods.
Congratulations, SEVENTEEN, on the success of your latest release, and we wish you much more of it to come!
