The group Big Bang has sold more than 30,000 copies of its third mini album “Stand Up” just two days after it was released on August 8. The album received an order of 85,000 copies from a retail dealer.
The album was completely sold out by 5:00 P.M. on August 9 at major record stores including Evan Records and the Gwanghwamun branch of Hot Tracks. The album was temporarily sold out on major online record stores including YGeshop and Internet Kyobo Book Store.
The manager at a record store said the album is selling at the same rate as Seo Taiji’s latest album.
Big Bang’s latest album defeated Seo Taiji on the Hanteo Chart and topped the weekly chart. The title song of the mini album “Day by Day” also ranked number one on Cyworld’s music chart, MNet.com and Jukeon.
A total of 640,000 online users accessed the music video of “Day by Day” on YG TV, two days after it was unveiled to the public.
“Inki Gayo,” a popular music show on SBS TV, alloted an unprecedented ten minutes for Big Bang’s first TV appearance since the album’s release.
