Enhypen 'Delusion: Dilemma': 800K copies sold within a week, band breaks own record
HYBE’s rookies are on their way to one-up themselves with their newest release, ‘Dimension: Dilemma’ that released on October 12. Enhypen was already on its way to global domination with its almost million pre-release sales. Just a day before the release of the album, Enhypen recorded a 900K pre-order for their first-ever studio album. The boys who debuted in 2020 are already on their way to becoming one of the most sought-after fourth-gen groups. Now, the group has also broken their own record in terms of sales only in a week of their album.
The song, ‘Tamed: Dashed’ from Enhypen serves as the title track of the album which marks their attempt at moving on to a youthful journey. With three versions of their album, Enhypen attempts at telling three different stories. The music video shows three different auras that the boys embody. With their movie-like story in the pop-rock song, 'Tamed: Dashed' made its debut on Bugs chart at Number 24 as well as on Genie charts at Number 204 only one hour after the release of the song, proving Enhypen's popularity.

Enhypen breaks its own record
For the first time since its debut, Enhypen recorded selling a total of 818,716 copies according to the Hanteo chart that was released on October 19. Enhypen first achieved the title of ‘half-million seller’ after they sold out 500K copies on the same day of its release making it their first-ever album to do so. Soon, Enhypen added another 300K copies to their sales records.
The sales is a new record compared to Enhypen's debut release ‘Border: Carnival’ which had recorded 380K copies in the first week of its release back in April 2020. Not only that, Enhypen is showing its global domination in terms of domestic charts records as the group also peaked at Number 2 on Bugs Weekly Chart being the only fourth-gen boy group to do so.
Meanwhile, Enhypen greeted fans at the SBS MTV’s ‘The Show’ on October 19, airing at 6 pm KST (5 am ET) to perform their lead single, ‘Tamed: Dashed’ taking their first music show win for the song. This win marks Enhypen's fourth overall win since their debut.
