BEAST, the only rookie to sell over ’100,000′ albums in 2010!

Boy group BEAST consisting of 6 members have made a splendid achievement as a rookie idol by selling more than 100,000 copies in 2010.

According to album sold research site Hanteo Chart on the 11th, BEAST who debuted last year on October have sold 107,006 copies from January 1st to October this year with 4 of their released albums including their first album.

BEAST is the only rookie group out of all the boy/girl groups who have sold over 100,000 copies when they have debuted only a little past a year now. This proves BEAST’s formidable popularity.

For a rookie group, Beast have shown that their fan base is a force to be reckoned with. This year alone, they topped every other rookie group with album sales exceeding 100,000 in copies. That is a whole lot of Shock and Soom going around.

Although they only came in 5th in total album sales for the year (SNSD took the lead with 300,000 copies sold), they still managed to impress, especially as a rookie group.

Their album sales are as follows:
“Lights Go On Again” - 35,350 copies (to December 12, 2010)
“Mastermind” - 33,777 copies (to October 2010)
“Shock Of The New Era” - 28,520 copies (to October 2010)
“BEAST Is The B2ST” - 9,359 copies (to December 12, 2010)

With sold out concerts and several wins on Kpop’s top music programs, this group seems to be gaining momentum day by day.
