Congrats to GFriend, Twice and Mamamoo for doing incredibly well overall. Congrats to all who snached a song for DOTS :D. Congrats to SM and JYP for doing so so well this year. Congrats to my boys EXO and to Taemin and Taeyeon doing great with their solos. Congrats to Jessica for making a good album with perfect title song. Congrats to all the smaller companies for doing new stuff and trying hard and producing good music. I love the first half of the year and can't wait for the second. (Hyuna, EXO, OMG, Bestie? Just give me some Bestie :D)

So from my understanding other than the album chart the rest  of the charts are only based on one single from the CD so like g freind sales are only based on the song rough and not the rest of the albums songs?? If that's the case i rather my fave artist be on the album chart because i feel that those artist are more so the artist that people actually care about their music and not just the title song that's catchy everyone knows that the real music in kpop come from the album not the title tracks. js

The album chart is physical album. while the other are digital, the song. digital chart indicates how much the song is love by public, meanwhile physical album chart indicates how many fans a group have. at least, this is what happens in kpop. physical album have nothing to do with their music actually, bcs no matter how good or bad the songs are, fans will still buy it. Meanwhile with digital chart, it's all abt the song. If public love it, it will get high ranking, no matter how big or small the fandom is. The conclusion is if you want to know which songs are loved by public, then look at the digital chart ranking, and if you want to know which groups that have big fandom, then look at the physical album chart.

Ballerz_30 Sunday, July 17, 2016

The most sales does not translate they are the best idols. That just mean they have the biggest fandom.
