Popular group SEVENTEEN (SVT) has rewritten the record for the most pre-orders for a K-pop album with their 10th mini album "FML".

According to their agency Pledis Entertainment on the 23rd, "FML," which will be released at 6 p.m. on the 24th, has received over 4.64 million pre-orders at home and abroad.

This is not only the highest number of pre-orders for a K-pop album in history, but also the highest number of pre-orders for a K-pop album in history, surpassing even the initial sales of "Face the Sun," the fourth album, which sold 2,067,769 copies in the first week after its release.


The previous record for the most pre-orders in K-pop was 4.02 million for global super group BTS's fourth studio album "Map of the Sol: 7" (2020).

Last year, SEVENTEEN broke its own record for the longest run on the Billboard 200 with "Face the Sun. The album has sold more than 3.28 million copies on the circle chart, making it the best-selling album released last year.

In addition, SEVENTEEN became the first repackaged album in K-pop history to become a "first-time million seller" with their fourth album repackage "Sector 17". The album also reached a career-high No. 4 on the Billboard 200, the main U.S. music chart.

The two albums were also recently ranked #5 and #9 on the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI)'s "Best selling pure albums worldwide in 2022" list.

As SEVENTEEN continues to gain momentum, 'FML' is expected to perform well on global charts such as the Billboard 200. In particular, it is expected to set a new record for the Billboard 200.

In addition, SEVENTEEN expressed confidence that they will start a new story with this album. There will be a total of six songs, including the double title track "F*ck My Life" and "Son Goku. This is the first time SEVENTEEN has released a double title track.
