Rain - LA SONG is probably the best song in January (and im not even a rain fan). It deserved to do much better on the charts than it did, especially what with it being his long awaited comeback and all.

Crazy also how few units his album sold.

tvxqfangril85 Saturday, February 8, 2014

Wah!! Can't believe how well TVXQ is doing on physical and digital sells. This is their best comeback as a duo thus far. Congratz to my JJ and to Rain oppa as well.

leesigh3 Saturday, February 8, 2014 B1A4 so unpopular that they can't even sell 50% of what TVXQ sells without being accused of cheating? I thought people were saying that B1A4 outsold TVXQ. Selling 50% as much isn't really that suspicious.

turtley Saturday, February 8, 2014

you see 99k is already suspicious bcs groups that can sell that much are TVXQ, Suju, BigBang, SNSD, (Maybe Infinite) and B1A4 isnt at their level yet. so altho it's just 50% of TVXQ it's still doesnt make sense. Rain doesnt even sell that much

leesigh3 Saturday, February 8, 2014

@turtley But people hate Rain B1A4's last album sold over 100k copies and they are clearly a group on the rise. So I don't think it's weird.

megamanx Saturday, February 8, 2014

@turtley Would you say B1A4 is on BAP level? Because BAP sold over 90k a few times and regularly in 70k-80k range.

leesigh3 Saturday, February 8, 2014

It's like GOT7 never even existed...

good_engineer Saturday, February 8, 2014

i thought rain is like a super popular superstar in korea. but why does this chart doesn't show it?

People can't say Rain and Gary flopped bc they made like every single chart

zaia Friday, February 7, 2014

i see Rain there and i'm happy :))))

THIS CHART. This chart proves how sketchy it was for B1A4 to win over TVXQ in the music shows -_-

First, I do not see b1a4's song in the digital top 10. And for albums, TVXQ sold 100000 more than b1a4 so how the hell did they win....

I know its not b1a4's fault but their company is so dumb doing this -_- Just when b1a4 was starting to get popular due to Sandeul and Baro.

i think B1A4 won since weekly music shows count album sales per week only. not the cumulative. so since TVXQ came back first their album sales dropped on the next week where B1A4 came out and their sales were "higher" than TVXQ.

itskhemicated Monday, February 10, 2014

TVXQ released their album first. On the first week of January, to be more specific. B1A4 released their album on the 3rd week of January. So, it is normal that TVXQ will win over B1A4 for the month of January since the first group released it first, making an edge for two weeks. And music shows rank the songs weekly, not monthly.
