Big Bang's book, 'Cry out loud to the world about you' is about to
surpass the album counts. Published/Released on January 28th, initial
press of 100,000 copies are sold out, and additional 60,000 copies were
printed, and out in the bookstore.
The response is phenomenal:
it is placed as the best seller in many online bookstore websites (on
the top on Yes24, and second place on Aladdin and Intepark). When the
promotion takes place in the coming days, the number of copies sold is
predicted to increase. Big Bang is having a press conference regarding
their book at Seoul Press Center on Feb. 6, 2pm to actively advertise
It is also interesting to watch whether it will
surpass the album counts- the highest counted for a single album is
200,000 (their second volume 'Remember'). Because Big Bang has huge
impact not only in music industry, but also in fashion and culture
trends, book sale can be predicted to surpass their album sales.
from YG Entertainment stated that "The responses from the readers are
very positive. You can see the unseen characters of Big Bang, and the
book contains their experiences of success driven by their passion and
drive. The book is getting good review from people of all ages".
