BEAST is not only taking over the music industry with their hit songs but also taking up the lead sales in book stores for the comic book series!
Recently, Beast members managed to sell all 13,000 copies of the first volume of their comic book series entitled, ‘The B2ST – The Beginning of Destiny.’ The publishers of the comic book series said that they already have begun the printing of second set due to the large amount of pre-orders. The second set of printing is said to be sold out as well.
A representative from one of Korea’s largest book store chains, Kyobo Bookstore, shared, “Initially we were a little concerned over the comic series success since no hallyu star had released a comic series starring his or her self. But all such concerns have dissipated and the comic book is proving even a better seller than some of the most recent books that have been released.” The unexpected successful sales caught the bookstore off guard.
The comic book series of Beast is about the members as individuals who use their superpowers for good. The members will have a special autograph session at the Gwanghwamun Kyobo Bookstore in Seoul on September 3.
