Big Bang has taken the music industry in 2008.
Big Bang’s second album “Remember” released on November 4 has swept the #1 position on online music sites like Melon, Mnet, Bugs, and others. This is only two months since the last broadcasting of their third mini album song “Day by Day” (하루하루).
With their second mini album title song “Last Farewell” (마지막 인사) earlier this year, and the summer’s third mini album title song “Day by Day” (하루하루), this makes a total of three times of #1 on both online and offline charts.
A YG Entertainment agent said, “In the music industry now, online music sales and strong and offline music sales are weak, but from Big Bang’s first album to their second, they have been strong in both,” and “It’s because they work hard to create different music from the others.”
Big Bang has the the best sales for a Korean artist for a total of 430,000 (Hanteo chart). This sales record is only for until November, and because it’s been less than a week since the release of their second album, it’s possible that it will reach over 500,000.
A YG Entertainment agent added, “It’s been two years since their debut and since then, they have sold a total of 1,000,000. This is quite an achievement when you consider that when they debuted, the Korean music market was at one of its worst times.”
