Looks like BTS fans just can't wait for the new album, with pre-orders through the roof!
Within five days of pre-orders being opened online, BTS' upcoming album Map of the Soul: PERSONA has surpassed 2.68 million copies ordered. The number includes pre-orders both within South Korea and internationally. The album also topped Amazon's CDs & Vinyl bestsellers list when pre-orders opened last week.
The boys are no strangers to huge pre-sale numbers; Love Yourself: Answer recorded 1.51 domestic pre-orders in one week and Love Yourself: Tear had 1.44 million Korean pre-orders alone in its first week.
Looks like the numbers just keep climbing as the anticipation builds! BTS will make their comeback with new album Map of the Soul: PERSONA on April 12, and they'll be performing on Saturday Night Live on April 13.
