JYJ’s New Album is in Short Supply
150,000 copies of JYJ’s first official album sold out on the first day of release.
A representative of JYJ’s agency C-Jes told enews on September 29, “After receiving pre-orders of 300,000 copies on September 10, we have been operating the factory at full capacity. Now that the first batch of albums sold out, we rapidly started producing more copies,” adding, “We’re doing our best to supply more copies to stores nationwide on October 4.”
The rep continued, “There is literally a shortages in supply. All copies produced aside from pre-orders [reserved after 2pm, September 28] have sold out, and orders are increasing at an astonishing pace.”
Amid the shortage of supply, JYJ fans shared information on the state of sales of the album via SNS and hunted for the album, In Heaven. There were even special zones set up for JYJ’s album in many music stores, and Hot Tracks of Gwanghawmun set up a counter exclusively for the album.
The album’s popularity is also heating up on various music charts. Main titles are sweeping the charts ranking first to third for two weeks in a row while the album topped Olleh Music Social Chart. This achievement is even more meaningful because they haven’t appeared yet on music programs on TV.
JYJ conveyed its message to enews via C-Jes, “We are happy to read excited messages via Twitter from fans who bought our albums and took photos holding it. We are thankful to fans for showing their unwavering support until this album came out. We will be a JYJ who is always improving ourselves and delivering good music.”
