YJ’s first album, The Beginning, has surpassed pre-orders of 520,000 cds.
JYJ’s distributor, Warner Music Korea, says that the production of more than “99,999 limited edition copies, 300,000 special edition copies and 220,000 regular edition copies” and supplying retailers were what caused the delay in the release.
JYJ was able to feel the explosion of interest from fans when they were preparing for the special pre-orders which has since sold out. They are still getting interest in the special pre-orders.
The general album debuted today and the special editions will be released on October 18th.
