It looks like this comeback is indeed the biggest one for Seventeen. A couple of weeks ago a drunk Hoshi had shared that he felt the group would be reaching new heights with their upcoming albums and it looks like he wasn’t wrong. Seventeen had several deserving opportunities from becoming the first K-pop act to collaborate with Apple for a single to drop their first original English-language song ‘Darl+ing’. Their fourth album ‘Face The Sun’ crossed 2 million sales in the first week and now its repackaged version ‘Sector 17’ has become a million-seller.

Seventeen is indeed flying high this summer as ‘face The Sun’ had gotten them several music show wins and kept topping the charts. They resumed their first Japan dome tour which had first been canceled in 2020. The ‘Be The Sun’ world tour kicked off with much pomp in Seoul in June with a star-studded audience from BTS’ Jungkook and Monsta X’s Hyungwon to Enhypen and NCT’s China line. And it doesn’t look like they are resting any time soon because just as fans were getting over the iconic lead single ‘Hot’, Seventeen announced its repackaged album ‘Sector 17’ and the pre-release ‘Cheer’ which pretty much broke K-pop Twitter with Hoshi, Woozi and S.Coups' twerking.

Seventeen the 1st K-pop act to get million-seller repackaged album

Well, Seventeen released their third repackaged album ‘Sector 17’ on July 18. Along with the nine tracks of ‘Face The Sun’, we got four new songs – ‘Circles’, ‘Fallin’ Flower’ (Korean version), ‘Cheers’ and the title track ‘_WORLD’. And as usual, our resident producer Woozi did not disappoint as he participated in the making of all the new tracks along with member Vernon for the groovy ‘Cheers’. And it looks like fans loved the album as they went all out in helping it become successful. Just 3 days after the release, on July 20, it was announced that ‘Sector 17’ had crossed a million sales. It is Seventeen’s seventh album to become a million-seller. 

‘Sector 17’ had crossed 935k sales on the first day itself. Additionally, they have also made a historical record by becoming the first-ever K-pop group to make a million sales for a repackaged album in the first week of its release. This highest first-week sales record for a repackaged K-pop album was previously held by their company-mates BTS with ‘Love Yourself: Answer’ selling 868k copies back in 2018. ‘Sector 17’ is also Seventeen’s fifth album to make a million sales in the first week of its release. The repackaged album has also crossed 100 million streams on Spotify.
