SEOUL, Jan. 25 (Yonhap) -- K-pop boy group Tomorrow X Together broke its own record as preorders for its fifth EP, "The Name Chapter: Temptation," have surpassed 2 million copies, the band's agency said Wednesday.
The EP has sold 2.16 million copies in preorders with two days left before its release, BigHit Music said, citing the album's distributor, YG Plus.
