Netizens are not as excited about LABOUM's "Journey to Atlantis" climbing back up on charts as they were about Brave Girls' "Rollin'".
LABOUM's "Journey to Atlantis" has shot up on charts ever since LABOUM was on 'Hangout With Yoo'. However, it's not getting the same welcome that Brave Girls got when "Rollin'" started shooting up on charts.
The biggest hangup that netizens have about LABOUM is that they have been accused of sajaegi in the past with 'MISS THIS KISS'. The girls had constantly sold less than 1,000 copies in the first week with their previous releases, but suddenly sold 28,000 copies of 'MISS THIS KISS' in the first week. After, they went back to selling around 1,000 in the first week.
Not only so LABOUM apparently out-sold GOT7 without any fansigns, even though GOT7 is well known for having one of the highest album sales out of idols, combined with the fact that GOT7 had a fansign. It was also pointed out that LABOUM sold more than 35 times their debut album with 'MISS THIS KISS'. This feat is completely unheard of The girls ended up beating IU on 'Music Bank' with "Hwi Hwi" because of the high album sales.
Another factor was that when "Rollin'" started sweeping music charts, LABOUM's label continued to try to promote LABOUM along with Brave Girls as what netizens are calling the '1+1' tactic. The two are very similar as they are both frequent performers in military performances, and "Journey to Atlantis" was a well-loved song overseas.
