SEOUL, Sept. 25 (Yonhap) — “Love Yourself: Her,” the latest album by K-pop boy band BTS, has sold more than 750,000 copies in the first week, according to its agency Monday.

American music publication Billboard magazine, meanwhile, reported that “Love Yourself: Her” rose to No. 7 on its main album chart, the Billboard 200.

Citing data from Nielsen Music, the magazine reported on its website that the record stood “at No. 7 with 31,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Sept. 21″ to become the highest-charting album ever on the Billboard 200 by a K-pop act.

Upon release, “Love Yourself: Her” topped iTunes albums charts in 73 countries, including the United States, Britain, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada and Japan, while the main song landed at No. 1 on iTunes’ top songs charts in 29 nations. “DNA” also became the fastest K-pop music video to reach 20 million views on YouTube.
