You wrote "excluding versions" so I thought you meant multiple versions of their korean albums (like Love Yourself Answer versions S, E, L and F)

i'm happy fans are buying albums as well, nowadays when people don't really buy a whole album, Even before i knew what kpop was i always believed in supporting artists i love by buying the physical album. Also people are so petty always downvoting a bts article as much as they can, i'm sure you all notice but compared to other articles bts gets downvoted the quickest and i'm eyeing a certain group of people in particular 🙊😏🤐

yep, there's literally an article where jin donated to an animal shelter for his birthday and it got 20 dislikes, tf. nothing about a bts record and just a feel good story. fans are petty.

I'd say it's because some armys keep badmouthing other groups and bringing up bts on articles where they aren't even related.

Some fans give the group a bad name man.

I'm not an army, but I do like their music.

Fastest 10 million sales in gaon. With no other language version. 5 million alone in 2018. If we add their japanese album and singles, how much would that be?

So army, what should we do in 2019? Add 10 mill more on that!

I guess now I'm even prouder of my empty wallet xD (bought a few BTS albums I was missing this year, besides what they released in 2018). 100% worth it, would buy again. Congrats BTS and good job ARMYs!

Last year, we were fighting for daesangs and called delusional for wanting BTS to win a grammy. Now they're only 1 of 2 artists in Bloomburg50, their albums and songs are on the end of the year best of 2018 lists...we worked hard.

But imagine if exo's Chinese numbers counted...

They did count EXO's chinese versions. BTS was the one that chose NOT to count their other language versions.

What record that EXO had did they break? If it’s the 5 million one then I hate to say they haven’t broken that record yet. That record isn’t about selling just 5 million albums. It’s about having 5 albums that have each sold a million or more albums. Just though I should clarify that

I thought we are talking about the 10 million here? that's what exo record were a few weeks ago, and we thought that we will eventually break that record within the next comeback but we didn't need a comeback to reach 10 million, bts just did with 13 albums only.

No, it also says BTS sold more than 5M this year breaking EXO´s record. EXO has the record of having 5 albums with more than +1M sales each, but i think this post is talking about another record not that one.

Its talking about +5M albums sold in general not the EXO thing +1M per album.

I think a lot of those sales were subscribers to pewdiepie, as you know he likes kpop aswell. And you should subscribe to him too!

Pewdiepie is going to lose his title of most subscribed youtube channel to an indian record label. now it's becoming a meme to subscribe to pewdiepie.
