The Recording Industry Association of Japan announced the music recording certifications for the month of July 2018, and BTS' album Love Yourself: Tear has been certified Gold.
Music CDs with over 100,000 shipments are officially certificated as a "Gold Disc" in Japan.
The achievement is yet another addition to the group's ever-growing list of accolades. The septet will kick off their sold-out Love Yourself world tour Aug. 25. The North American leg of the tour will end with the group’s first-ever stadium show in the U.S., which will also be a first for any Korean act. The group also recently announced their first Japanese dome tour, starting in November.
