JYJ wil be releasing their first worldwide album 'The Beginning' on October 12th. As members of TVXQ, it is predicted that Micky Yoochun, Youngwoong Jaejoong and Xiah Junsu's new album will be a big hit on the market.
TVXQ's previous album 'Mirotic', released in 2008 sold a record-breaking 500,000 copies, yet it is likely that that this record will be broken with the release of the trio's new album.
It has now been 2 years since the release of 'Mirotic', and the trio are back with their new album 'The Beginning'. Already, the album has demonstrated phenomenal selling power; all 99,999 copies of the Luxury Package were sold out within the first day of pre-sales.
With 2 weeks remaining till the official release of the album, the normal version has sold 50,000 copies in pre-sales. The release of the trio's album will no doubt have amazing impact on the music industry.
Of course, it must be taken into account that this will be a worldwide release. Since 2008, TVXQ's fanclub Cassiopeia has continued to hold the Guinness World Recrod for being the biggest fanclub in the world. With fans all over the world, particularly in countries such as Japan and China, sky high sales figures are almost guaranteed. It is predicted that the album will sell over 500,000 copies.
Representatives of Warner Music claimed 'The fans will have high hopes and expectations since it's been 2 years since they last released an album.'
