CNBlue hits double platinum in Taiwan
CNBlue have become the first Korean singers to reach platinum status with two different albums in Taiwan at the same time.
According to Warner Music Taiwan, their first mini-album, “Bluetory,” and second minialbum, “Blue Love,” both sold over 10,000 copies each. Taiwan acknowledges albums as “platinum” when 10,000 copies are sold.
Many Korean groups such as TVXQ, Super Junior, and SS501 have released albums in Taiwan, but CNBlue is the first to have both albums reach platinum at the same time. Representatives of Warner Music Taiwan stated, “A double platinum has definitely never happened before.”
CNBlue is currently ranked first in major Taiwanese music charts such as G-Music and Five Music.
