TVXQ are still the kings and Big Bang hasn't performed in Japan in all of 2018 and they're still on the list.

Is there a reason for you not mentioning SNSD being at #8?

I thought it was just an issue with not recognising kanji but they recognised TVXQ so I'm not sure what's up?

LMAOOOOO this writer is so biased it's so funny x))))


So a GG who didn't came back in 4 years in japan and still successfully rank number 8, but we will just act like nothing happen and we talk about blackpink in number 10 LMAO x)))


Anyway the fact that this writer don't even dare mention snsd is so funny, but the fact that you didn't mention them will not erase their legacy and impact :)

SNSD & BIGBANG R AMAZING!!! More than a decade in the k pop industry and they're still competing with the 3rd gen k pop superstars even without promoting. I hope they both make a powerful comeback and take the Kpop world by storm. Hwaiting Legends!!!

So glad to See ma other favs on the list as well☺ BLACKPINK HWAITING!!! TWICE HWAITING!!! BTS HWAITING!!! Not really a fan of TVXQ but I'm glad that they made it on the list. They're Legends as well.

I saw the detailed ranking. It's clear to see TVXQ has general public recognition in Japan. They didn't rank at 10s but the rest. And ranked highest at 40's, 50's and 60's


also tvxq and bigbang ranked higher than bts and twice. shouldn't the pic display these 2?

Most surprising thing for me on this was the fact that SNSD is on the 8th place.

I didn't expect to see them on this so that was a nice surprise

620k only compare to 126milion of japan's population. This ranking is irrelevant. Bts still the top in terms of albums/dvd sales. Vipshits and tvxqflop fans stop being delulus

DVD sales?? BTS is top in terms of album and single sales only for 2017 and 2018, thanks to handshake events. They don't make handshake events for DVD sales, that's why their DVD sales are shit lmao
