    I'm so tired of exo ...... the whole list is full with their boring albums . I just don't get it how blind are people these days and how they can't see the real music and talent . There are a lot groups with a perfect albums for the last year ....and yeah in the end every year is almost the same . Congrats to bts ,my babies <3 thanks for them ,I see some hope left in the kpop ..

    Talent is when you are on the top because of your special skills ..for real,and yáll knows that exo won't be number one if sm are not behind them .As I said before the power of the big companies is very important ,they put them everywhere and paid for some stuff.For example for Kai's lead role in drama even if he can't act at all..and is just not fair.This is what they do in the music.The big companies always will dictate the rules in Kpop.

    Sorry Allkpop don't allow me to write a long comments so I'll keep now . So even if the company come out with some group without any special skills or sing talent ( you know these groups who can only lipsync and can't even sing one song live ,only jumping around the stage and ''dancing'' ) ..they will be successful only because they are under big company.And everyone runs after the crowd u know ...like a sheeps,the fans start to not pay attention what the group do as music ,only how handsome they are ,how populary they are ,who they dating and etc.

    Even if the group drops the worst song in the world,the fans will say that is ''amazing'' and I'm a hate only because I'm realistic and not a biased.So the point is that exo are good yes ,there are a few songs that I like ..but they don't deserve to be on the top ..they are not so special.For example B.a.p,if they were under sm and back then everything happened with the lawsuit ,and they back.

    The will be on the same level as before to leave the company .Because this is sm after all.But now b.a.p are not even in top 10male groups,why ?Because they are under small company,there not much money for reclame,awards ( yes I bet that sometimes big companies paid for awards ,this happen everywhere),promoting,and they can't allow to put them everywhere.

    Even if they have killing live stages,tours,different concepts and good quality albums everytime...there is not place for them.And this is makes me sad .Yes I can say that b.a.p are one of the groups with more talent than exo

    Everytime when I click on new exo's MV ,I expect to see something different,a fire ... a bomb..and after all I see only songs almost the same with the rest of their previous songs and concepts.

    Some fans actually think BTS is the second coming of Christ when in fact they are in the same cesspool of KPop artists who are heavily influenced by Western pop music. I truly adore BTS as well as EXO but none is better than the other. Its Ok to love another group and dislike the other but don't be delusional, at least know the tea.

    I just share my opinion :) I don't insult and put ugly names on exo ...but when someone is with different opinion and see the things from a different view ..yáll say that this a hater ...hater is when you insult someone without a FACTS and talk only nosense .Better read again what I wrote and you will see that 99% is true :)

    The point here is that ARMY are not allowed to disparage other groups. It's the number 1 reason for being banned from the fandom. It's important to remember that no matter how much I agree with you. I don't believe you're trolling or a hater but you really should be careful what you say about you know who. Congratulate them and save all the good and warm feelings for Bangtan

    I feel the writer of this article is a bit biased, based on the choice of words used. --'always sell well'??-- they are always good, thats why they always sell well, not just a phenomenon.--'barely edged out'-- what do you mean to say??!!

    He is listing the albums sales directly from Gaon. I don't know how that can make him biased. The winter albums do sell well, there's nothing hurtful or untrue. And barely edged out means there was just a few votes separating SVT from #10.

    WINGS only had one version and they released it in the last quarter of the year and they reached the top sales. I'm so proud of my babies! "teamwork makes the dream work" :')

    You mean the four versions of this album counting as one, right? Of course they achieved an incredible result last year compared to the last albums, but this helped a lot.

    There weren't 4 versions. It was just photos of different members. It was also random. You didn't know who you were getting

    That's not my issue but you could've if you wanted to, eBay, kpoptown, and a dozen more sites gave you the option of choosing the album. You're the one with the problem clearly...

    There could've still been a way for you to choose which one you wanted is what I'm saying.. I'm not saying those sites are the only in the world. I can see just fine thank you very much and this is the last time I'm responding to you because you were upset I voted down one of your comments. It's not that serious.

    Don't doubt so much :) Don't forget that the power of the companies have a big role in the game ... this explain a lot about exo ,u know . I doubt too that exo would be that successful without SM and the way the company put them everywhere and paid of course about some stuff ...as the case with the new PRO ''actor'' Kai .

    LMAO! Their covers have more views than entire solo albums. Go be bitchy and troll somewhere else. You're bringing down the mood for both EXO L and ARMY.
