According to the Hanteo chart, a Korean chart service which shows the record of album sales, the total sale of BTS's new album Map of the Soul: Persona just reached 2 million copies. Cho-dong means the first week after the album has been released and it is used as one of the indicators to predict how strong a fandom is for each artist.

This is not only a new record for BTS but also a new record for the entire K-pop history. The No.1 'Cho-dong' record had been set by BTS's Love Yourself: Tear which was sold just over 1 million copies. Now their sales have doubled in just one year.
