BTS has once again proven their global popularity by selling the most albums to foreigners on Ebay Korea for 2018!
On February 17, Ebay Korea reported their sales for albums and photobooks increased by 62% while idol related goods like t-shirts, mugs etc. went up by 55% in 2018.
BTS’s 3rd album Love Yourself 轉 Tear was reported to have sold the most for 2018. Even though the BTS album as a packaged set with 4 versions could be considered to be one of the most expensive Kpop albums at 65,000 won (~$65), the price did not deter the popularity of the album. It has been reported that 1 out of 5 shoppers on Ebay Korea (aka gmarket global website) purchased the packaged BTS album set that included a photobook, photocard, poster etc.
