[NEWS] Big Bang Shows “Monster” Power in Album Sales in Japan, Taiwan

K-pop idol band Big Bang has proved to be the rulers of K-pop.

The group scored the gold status for two of their Japanese singles after selling over 100,000 copies in Japan, according to Recording Industry Associations of Japan [RIAJ] last Friday.

Their latest sales record for “Tell Me Goodbye” and 2012 hit “FANTASTIC BABY” is just another feat for the stars, after gaining the title with “ALIVE”–Japanese edition of Big Bang’s fifth mini-album of the same name–earlier this year.

Following the achievement, the five-member band was overjoyed again by shattering the biggest ticket sales record of all time for Korean artists in Taiwan.

The dominant boy group had attracted 20,000 fans for two sold-out shows hosted at the Taipei Arena last weekend and raked in approximately four million U.S. dollars for both shows.

Set to hit Manila’s Moa Arena in Philippines on Wednesday, the K-pop icons will keep themselves busy until early next February with more shows in Malaysia, United States, Peru, Japan, Hong Kong and the United Kingdom.
