‘The Boys’ tops Gaon Chart’s October album sales with more than 200,000 copies!

According to Gaon Chart’s ‘October Album Chart’ released on November 10th, Girls’ Generation’s 3rd album ‘The Boys’ took the no.1 spot with a total recorded sales of 227,994 copies in October.

In just about two weeks after its release on October 19th, the sales of ‘The Boys’ had surpassed 200,000 copies. This sales figure is the highest among female artistes and it also places the girls among the top 3 artistes with the best selling albums this year.

A representative of Gaon Chart said, “Due to the influence of the Kpop wave which is becoming the craze all over the world, the album sales of popular Hallyu idol singers have increased compared to last year. This is also probably due to the increase in purchases of albums by international fans through Korean music sites.”

In terms of cumulative album sales this year, Super Junior’s 5th album ‘Mr. Simple’ is in 1st place with 329,035 copies, followed by TVXQ’s ‘Keep Your Head Down’ in the 2nd spot with 244,128 copies.
