BTS' remarkable achievements are continuing into Japan.
On December 20, Oricon, the major Japanese music chart, released the rankings for the 'Top 10 Artist Sales of 2018.' Oricon tallied the total sales of artists in Japan from December 11, 2017 to December 8, 2018.
The Big Hit Entertainment boy group is at #6 for making 5.27 billion yen (47 million USD) in sales. This is the first time BTS entered the top 10 for sales in Japan. They are also the only foreign act on this year's top 10 ranking.
Back in April, BTS released the 3rd Japanese album 'Face Yourself,' which has been certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of Japan.
