1. NewJeans debut album "New Jeans" sells 1M copies

기사 요약: 뉴진스 데뷔 앨범 ‘뉴 진스’ 누적 판매량 100만 장 돌파

[1] NewJeans became the first K-pop female act to sell more than one million copies of a debut album with their EP "New Jeans."

*act: 행동, 파트, 공연자(그룹)

*EP: 싱글 음반과 정규 음반 중간에 위치하는 음반

[2] The album sold a total of 1,036,811 copies by Feb. 11, according to data collected by Circle Chart. This is the first time since Circle Chart’s record began in 2011 that a K-pop act’s debut album has sold more than a million copies.

*according to ~: ~에 따르면

[3] NewJeans came out with its namesake debut EP on Aug. 1 and took the music world by storm as “Attention” and “Hype Boy” conquered local music charts.

*namesake: 이름이 같은 것

*conquer: 정복하다

[4] Generally, album sales are highly reliant on the group’s fandom making it hard to become a million-copy seller for artists that have not built fandoms prior to their debut, by participating in idol survival programs, for example. However, NewJeans achieved the milestone through its unique approach of releasing its music video without any prior teaser content.

*reliant: 의존하는

*milestone: 중요한 단계
