Netizens expressed their ridicule at BigHit's statement on BTS's album selling power. 

On June 13, BTS's management label BigHit informed media outlets that they expected for the group to "surpass the goal of one million album sales with the 'HwaYangYeonHwa' series." According to BigHit, the one million mark will be achieved by aggregating the sales of 'HwaYangYeonHwa Pt. 1,' 'HwaYangYeonHwa Pt. 2,' and 'HwaYangYeonHwa: Young Forever' together, which sold 274,351, 351,413, and 310,243 copies, respectively. When the numbers are all added up, the sales for BTS's 'HwaYangYeonHwa' album series equal 936,007 copies sold. The album sales are based on data from Gaon. 

BigHit predicted the one million mark as 'HwaYangYeonHwa' parts one and two are still sitting atop charts and as BTS will be holding their Asia tour come August.

While ARMYs couldn't be happier to hear this good news about BTS, others didn't share in their joy. Netizens commented, "Why would they taint their own name with an article like this lol," "Why would they publish an article like that by combining the album sales from last year and this year lololol," "If you combine [album sales] like that then SHINee would be million sellers, too," "It's only a million seller if one album sells a million copies," "I had to research 'HwaYangYeonHwa' because of [this article] lolol. I thought that 'Pt. 1,' 'Pt. 2,' and 'Young Forever' were repackages but that wasn't the case; each is a different album but they just made it out to be a 'series.' It's not one album so how is it a million seller? lolol. I didn't know such a calculation method existed," and more.

its really funny how armys are responding to this.

The funniest thing is how netizens made fun of them for ever thinking they'd be 1M sellers one day, yet here they are. WINGS officially sold over 1M copies with the repackage (1.49M to be exact). BTS is now in the top 20 of SK's best selling albums (13rd place) & is the only group from 2000-onwards there. BTS became million sellers with WINGS & I don't doubt they will do it again with their next album.

that's not what was funny. Its just hypocritical how armys are adding different album sales, which is what they've been campaigning against EXO for supposedly doing. apologies for not realizing that this was an old article though.

We're only adding album + repack sales, which is how the korean industry counts sales. You can count Exa'ct + Lotto together I don't care, but don't add the sales of the Chinese Ver as well this is ridiculous. I mean, we don't add the sales of the Jap ver of Young Forever either. The 4 version of WINGS all had the same barcode while Exa'ct Kr & Ch versions had different barcodes, which proves they should be counted separately. Basically : Exa'ct (Kr) + Lotto (Kr) = OK. Exa'ct (Ch) + Lotto (Ch) = OK. Exa'ct (Kr) + Exa'ct (Ch) = NO. Lotto (Kr) + Lotto (Ch) = NO. And I don't doubt BTS will soon become 1M sellers with only an album & no repack. WINGS sold 780 000 copies in 5 months meanwhile 710 000 copies of YNWA were sold in only 2 weeks.

Did you even read the article before you replied? It literally says that BTS is adding totally different albums together. That means different content, as compared to the same content in any album, regardless of version, by EXO. What difference does the language make when it's just translated? The article was a jab at EXO and the comments only solidified it. And what's this Japanese version of Young Forever? BTS has separate Japanese studio albums, one was Youth which is what I believe you're referring to. The Most Beautiful Moment in Life: Young Forever was a Korean compilation album. At least I do my research. I'm not denying any of the sales made by BTS, it would be stupid to, but since you've become so defensive I might as well retort: how many fansigns have BTS held for Wings + YNWA, as compared to EXO's Ex'act + Lotto? How many different versions? For Life, which was barely promoted (I can only remember one fansign, and 1 month of promotion), had 400,000+ sales. Oh, and it was a mini album.

Haha this is fricken hilarious! WINGS has sold almost half a MILLION already and that's not even the total amount and it hasn't even been a month! They will exceed 1M with this album, and then all these winey assholes will have to eat their words! BTS wings is the highest charting and best selling album, sorry bae!

Jealous Bitches being Jealous Again...

just love how they had to add "lolol" after every comment to make it sound not so serious. It sounds so stupid how they didn't know how the 3 albums are three diff albums. Netizens also talk about how you can't calculate the sales together and that the method doesnt exist. I didn't recall anyone saying that that doesnt exist. Netizens be bored and mostly attacking BTS with this and that. Hopefully they find a job where they can gossip instead
