BTS is making new records with the new Japanese album 'Face Yourself'.


According to Japan's Oricon Chart on April 12, BTS' 3rd Japanese album sold 282,000 copies in the first week (April 2-April 8). This breaks the record by KARA, who sold 275,000 copies of their Japanese album 'Super Girl' in the first week of November 2011. 


This puts 'Face Yourself' as the fastest-selling album by a K-pop group in Japan, breaking the record set by the girl group 6 years and 4 months ago.
