Though it hasn’t even been a week since SEVENTEEN released their latest album, SEVENTEENTH HEAVEN, on October 23, the K-Pop group is already breaking massive records!
Prior to the new album release, Stray Kids held the record for most album sales in the first week of release with their most recent album, ★★★★★ (5-STAR). In the first week after it came out on June 2 this year, it sold around 4,617,400 copies, an incredibly high number.
It surpassed SEVENTEEN’s past album sales record earlier in the year with FML, which sold 4,550,200 copies in the week after it came out on April 24.
But only four days since SEVENTEENTH HEAVEN dropped, SEVENTEEN once again took the title of best first-week album sales, as the sales number reached around 4,617,600 copies at that time.

It will be interesting to see just how high the total first-week sales number gets in the next couple of days!
Each comeback just keeps getting bigger!
