Top Hallyu group Big Bang has once again demonstrated their international star status by hitting Double Platinum in Taiwan with their recent album, 'Alive'.
On April 6th, Warner Music Taiwan revealed, "Big Bang's album 'Alive' has achieved Double Platinum status". This achievement is especially notable when it is taken into account that Big Bang has never visited Taiwan before.
Taiwan's major album sales site G-Music reported that 'Alive' was the highest selling K-pop album of the week on 'Five Music'. Furthermore, it also reported that the sales for 'Alive' made up 22.28% of all album sales in Taiwan for that week, making their record all the more impressive.
The success continued in the online world, as 'Alive' topped Taiwan's eZPeer K-pop Digital Album Chart, while their song "Blue" hit number one on the Taiwan Mobile single's chart. Additionally, Big Bang's "Bad Boy" recently hit number one on MTV Taiwan's K-pop weekly chart.
A representative of Warner Music Taiwan commented, "Currently, Big Bang's popularity in Taiwan is such that we are printing additional copies of the album to keep up with the high volume sales."
In related news, Big Bang will be making their long awaited visit to Taiwan on April 9th and 10th.
