alex_grey Friday, June 10, 2016

how can bts sales very high in physical album but they are nowhere to be seen in top 10 digital and win over akmu who slays the chart in music shows? can somebody explain? dont say every boy group weak at digital sales beacuse bigbang and exo are not..are they not popular in korea?? i just want an proper answer........................

Elisabeth_V_M alex_grey Friday, June 10, 2016

I'd like to answer, but i'm wondering about this myself :( But to answer your question about popularity, BTS are seriously popular in Korea (and internationally). Don't hate me (I'm an EXO-L, and an ARMY), but i honestly think that they're on the same level as EXO in terms of popularity. So i honestly don't know why they're not on any other charts. I hope someone else can help ^-^

Kirin_El alex_grey Friday, June 10, 2016

Actually BTS digital sales have improved so much, FIRE is #11 on digital charts, its just below TOP10 ^_^

bigbangisVIPOT5 alex_grey Friday, June 10, 2016

they're songs are not preferred by korean public

Kirin_El bigbangisVIPOT5 Friday, June 10, 2016

Yeah, korean general audience mostly likes cheerful or soft songs, in fact BTS highest digital record is for I Need U

zmfjszl alex_grey Friday, June 10, 2016

Im a korean. Its bcuz of difference of male and female idol. Korean public usually listen to only girl group songs. Female idols are always higher than male idol in digital charts like male idols are higher than female idol in album charts. For example, popular idol like snsd, 2ne1, sistar, kara, twice, miss a, gfriend, mamamoo, apink, aoa took 1st place in digital charts many times whenever they release new songs. but male idols couldnt take 1st place in melon chart except for bigbang and zico. even exo never have been 1st place in melon chart. Because korean public dont listen male idols songs. I dont know why... for example, got7 was out on melon top100 in a day. Bts was in melon top20 monthly chart its good becuz almost every male idols were out in digital chart in few days. and this time exo's digital chart is great not 1st place but 3rd yesterday I think they will be melon top10 monthly chart. I think buz exo has recognition by korean public than many male idols.

Pristinee Elisabeth_V_M Friday, June 10, 2016

Same level as EXO? Hahaha, ok 😏

bigbangisVIPOT5 Kirin_El Friday, June 10, 2016

Nope it's run

Kirin_El bigbangisVIPOT5 Friday, June 10, 2016

I Need U have over 600k download while Run is only about 450k

1Minoz alex_grey Saturday, June 11, 2016

With the exception of Big Bang and Block B, Korean males don't listen to boygroups like American straight males don't listen to boybands. EXO songs are on top 10 because if their large fandom, so big that their fandom become the public.

I'm forever looking forward to seeing SHINee on the list! Congratz to all the others who made it to the charts!
