The short album recorded over one-million pre-orders, the highest number ever for a South Korean music group or artist in Japan.
The album includes three songs: “Lights,” a Japanese version of “boy With Luv” which ranked highly on Billboard’s “Hot 100” chart and a Japanese version of “IDOL” which was the title track of an album released last August.
BTS is scheduled to perform in Osaka on July 6 and 7 and in Fukuroi city, Japan on July 13 and 14.
