SEOUL, Sept. 4 (Yonhap) -- The number of preorders for K-pop band BTS' new EP album coming out this month has reached more than 1 million copies, according to the group's management agency Monday.

Loen Entertainment, the distributor for BTS' upcoming EP record titled "Love Yourself: Her," has received orders for 1.05 million copies of the album as of last Thursday, Big Hit Entertainment said.

The preorder figure is substantially higher compared with that of some 700,000 copies for the band's "Wings: You Never Walk Alone" album released in February.

The figure is expected to be higher when factoring in overseas orders. Preorders for the record reached No. 1 on Amazon's "CDs & Vinyl" category last Wednesday.

The new album is the first in the band's new "Love Yourself" series, which will be rolled out in serial format into 2018. The record will come out Sept. 18.
