SEOUL, April 1 (Yonhap) -- The original soundtrack album of the hit television series "Descendants of the Sun" has sold more than 20,000 copies, dominating domestic online music charts, the album's distributor said Friday.

The sales of the first volume of the OST broke the 20,000-mark during the day, thanks to the unchallenged boom of the military romantic television series, according to MUSIC&NEW.

It is rare for an OST album to hit the 20,000 milestone in the struggling local music market already dominated by streaming or digital downloads.

The OST for the 2013-2014 mega-hit drama "My Love from the Star" sold 27,000 copies.

The "Descendants of the Sun" OST album consists of two volumes. The first volume includes a total of five songs: "Always" by Yoon Mi-rae, "Everytime" by Chen and Punch, "This Love" by Davichi, the Korean and English versions of "You Are My Everything" by Gummy and "Once Again" by Kim Na-young featuring Mad Clown.

The second volume set to drop on April 21 also has five songs by K-Will, SG Wannabe, Lynn, M.C The Max, and Junsu of the K-pop boy band JYJ.

The soundtrack has ranked high on major local music charts.

"This Love" by Davichi topped Genie Music's monthly chart last month, followed by Yoon Mi-rae's "Always."

"You Are My Everything" and "Everytime" came in fifth and sixth on the chart.

KBS 2TV's "Descendants of the Sun" is broadcast every Wednesday and Thursday at 10 p.m.
