Big Bang nears Seo Tae-ji in Album Sales

Today’s hottest band Big Bang is threatening to overtake Korea’s “Cultural President” Seo Tae-ji in album sales.

According to Hanteo Chart, an online album sales site, Big Bang’s third mini album “Stand Up” has sold 122 thousand copies between September 22, 2007 and September 20, 2008. This figure is right behind the title song “Atomos Part Moai” in Seo Tae-ji’s eighth album, which posted 130 thousand in sales.

Just one week ago Big Bang was in third place in album sales, immediately following Brown Eyes’ third album “Two Things Needed for the Same Purpose and 5 Objets.” But this week Big Bang outsold Brown Eyes by 4,000 copies to take second place away from the ballad duo. Big Bang’s latest mini album has been in the market for six weeks already, but is still going strong in all music charts.

Big Bang has outranked Seo Tae-ji in music programs as well. The five-member band competed with Seo for the top spot in Music Bank, a music ranking program on KBS2, on September 5th. Big Bang also held onto No.1 spot against Seo in the cable channel MNet’s M Countdown on September 4th.
