Stray Kids Become Triple Million Sellers!
On October 7th, Stray Kids released their seventh mini album “MAXIDENT” and the title track “CASE 143”.
On November 17, the group’s agency JYP Entertainment confirmed that the release had surpassed 3 million cumulative album sales on the Circle (Gaon) chart as of November 7, exactly one month after Stray Kids dropped “MAXIDENT.”
After BTS, this now makes Stray Kids only the second Korean artist in history to become a triple million seller with one album.
Immediately after the release of “MAXIDENT” last month, the mini album sold over 1.3 million, becoming Stray Kids’ best-selling album in a single day. Later that week, Stray Kids became the second fastest artist in Hanteo history to have an album reach the 2 million mark, achieving the feat in less than six days. With “MAXIDENT”, Stray Kids became the artist with the second highest first-week sales in Hanteo history.
This achievement also supports Stray Kids’ record among JYP artists. Last August, Stray Kids became JYP’s first million-seller with their second studio album ‘NOEASY’. Earlier this year in March, Stray Kids extended that record as the first JYP artist to become a double million seller with the successful release of “ODDINARY”. Stray Kids’ long list of achievements now includes their titles as JYP’s first two million and triple million sellers.
In October 2022, at 18 of their albums and just four years after their debut, Stray Kids surpassed 10 million album shipments in Korea and Japan.
After wrapping up their concerts in Indonesia last week, Stray Kids’ ‘MANIAC’ world tour will kick off this February in Bangkok. They will then visit various cities in Asia, Australia, and the United States before playing five more encore concerts. These additional performances in 2023 will make Stray Kids the second K-pop boy group after BTS to perform at a stadium in North America, and will be the group’s first home tour in Japan.
Congratulations Stray Kids!
