[MTStarNews] The Youth Protection Committee classified TVXQ's 4th abum MIROTIC as harmful for the youth, but 100 days after the said album was released it has already reached 500,000 sales.
On the 8th, TVXQ's agency SMEntertainment said, "Since TVXQ's MIROTIC album was released September 26 last year until January 6 it has been sold online 167,697 copies, from off-line 335,140 copies amounting to after 103 days a total of 502,837 copies" they revealed.
This 2008 (the MIROTIC) album is among the all-time record-high sold. Not since Kim Gu Mo's 2003 8th album (Hestory) of 520,000copies has there ever been another artist that sold over 500,000.
TVXQ's album November last year was branded as having harmful lyrics by the Youth Protection Committee, but as if to mock the decision, album sales are increasing more and the phenomenon finally led to the breakthrough of the half a million mark.
Meanwhile, TVXQ is scheduled to have the 3-day (February 20-22), "TVXQ THE 3rd ASIA TOUR CONCERT-MIROTIC" at the Seoul Olympic Gymnastics Stadium.
