BTS Is The First Artist To Break This Guinness World Record In 24 Years
Just when you think BTS can’t soar any higher, they do!
In April, Billboard sent an inquiry request to Guinness World Records regarding BTS’s 2019 album, Map of the Soul: Persona.
On June 25, that inquiry request was officially confirmed. According to Guinness World Records, Map of the Soul: Persona is now the best-selling album in South Korean history!
The previous sales record was set in 1995 by Kim Gun-mo’s Mis-Encounter (also known as Wrongful Encounter or Wrongful Meeting). It took 24 years, but that sales record has now been broken by none other than the Kings of K-Pop, BTS!
Each time BTS release an album, the sales increase astronomically, so there’s a chance that their next album could beat their own record!
