Despite the fact that TREASURE has not debuted yet, the group surpassed this amount in only four days. TREASURE broke a debut album pre-order record among YG Entertainment group.
YG Entertainment revealed in an official statement, “Due to a surge in pre-orders in Japan and China, we decided to produce 50 thousand more copies of ‘THE FIRST STEP : CHAPTER ONE’ over the weekend.” Last week, TREASURE reached 100 thousand stock pre-orders after just two days since pre-orders opened.
The label continued, “Although there are high numbers of pre-orders in China, Korea, and Japan, there are also sales coming from various countries like the United States, those in South East Asia, and more. Thanks to this, we are recognizing TREASURE’s global popularity.”
