A fast-selling album is defined as one with high sales in its first chart week following release. The highest sales achieved in any country in an album's debut week are 3.38 million for 25 by Adele in the United States in the week ending 26 November 2015. This passed the previous record of 3.00 million set by the album Distance by Hikaru Utada in Japan in 2001.

This is a list of the fastest-selling albums in South Korea.
Love Yourself: Answer by BTS is the current fastest-selling album in South Korea with over 1.9 million copies shipped to stores in its first 8 days of release.
This the list of the highest weekly album sales in South Korea, as recorded by the Hanteo Information System established in 1993.
Hanteo releases album sales on a daily basis, but does not cover all retailers. However, Hanteo coverage has increased over the past decade. Furthermore, album sales have become increasingly frontloaded over time, hence why million-sellers from the mid and late 1990's do not appear on this list.
