First week record sales reached 282,000 copies, according to Oricon. "Face Yourself" was also seen at No. 1 on Oricon's daily album chart for the sixth consecutive day.

"Face Yourself" includes Japanese versions of past BTS hits, such as "DNA" and "Mic Drop," released in Korea last year. "Don't Leave Me" is an original Japanese release that is also used as the theme music in the Japanese remake of the South Korean TV crime procedural "Signal."

The seven-piece act plans to hold fan meet and greets in Yokohama and Osaka later this month. (Yonhap)
