The K-pop industry knew not to mess with NCT Dream when they became the youngest triple million-seller in 2021 with their first studio album ‘Hot Sauce’ and its repackaged album ‘Hello Future’. Well, they have set the bar now even higher as they reached 2 million just for the pre-orders of their second studio album ‘Glitch Mode’. The music video and choreography were equally mind-blowing as the boys introduced a unique glitching dance move. And well, they have made a record just on the fourth day of the album's release.

Released on March 28, ‘Glitch Mode’ ended up topping several charts like Bugs, MelOn real-time, Vibe, Hanteo, China’s QQ, Japan’s Line Music, and AWA, and entered Genie and FLO. NCT Dream also ended up topping iTunes in 28 countries like Japan, Chile, and Thailand within 24 hours. ‘Glitch Mode’ also crossed 703k sales on the first day. Additionally, on March 31 early morning, just under four days after the release, the album ended up making 1.12 million sales.
