According to iriver, the company in charge of BTS' album distribution, 'Love Yourself: Tear' recorded 1,449,287 copies in pre-sales as of April 24. The pre-sales started on the 18th, and the record is only counting in domestic orders.
BTS has broken their own record for the most album pre-sales. Last September, the boy group recorded 1 million in pre-sales orders with 'Love Yourself: Her'. This year, they've exceeded that record by over 400,000. 'Love Yourself: Tear' also topped Amazon's 'Best Seller' list.
Meanwhile, BTS is scheduled to make their comeback in May, and will also be performing at the '2018 Billboard Music Awards'.
