If only it wasn’t weverse specific album, it could have sold much more. Lack of CD cuts out lots of buyers, also being able to play the album by downloading specific app.......

I think the numbers would be different if we had physicals, but I do think this is where kpop is heading to. No physicals, only a QR code so you can listen to the album. They’ll probably find a combination between people who love to collect pc’s and music lovers. So maybe they’ll sell pc’s with a QR code on the back in the future?
