On May 30, it was announced that ★★★★★ (5-STAR) has now become the K-Pop album with the most pre-orders in history, surpassing 4.93 million sales!

This breaks the record that was formerly held by SEVENTEEN, who just earlier this year had reached 4.64 million pre-orders with their album FML.

At this rate, it’s highly likely that Stray Kids’ new album will surpass a total of five million sales, a number that has only ever been reached by BTS‘s Map of the Soul: 7 album.

Fans of Stray Kids are extremely proud of the group for this accomplishment, and are expressing their excitement on Twitter!

The topic of ★★★★★ (5-STAR) reaching this impressive pre-sales number was also discussed on an online forum, where netizens shared how they couldn’t believe how much the K-Pop genre has grown in the last several years.

Congratulations to Stray Kids for this accomplishment! Make sure not to miss when their new album drops on June 2.
