Fans are shook at the number considering the actual music hasn’t even been released yet (besides ‘Interlude: Shadow Comeback Trailer’).

“3.42M in pre-orders? I know I say this every time they make a comeback but how is this even possible? There’s still a lot of time left before the pre-order time ends! I can’t wait for their new song to be released tomorrow!”
