    I was bored and decided to do this cute little graph about best-selling albums each year. I just find it very interesting how Exo revived album sales and how BTS is pushing this even higher. 5f63c7cf707f5e271d371dedf2ce9d07.png

    pretty depressing to see just two acts dominate the market so thoroughly over the past 7 years. understandable but still depressing.

    I found two mistakes.
    - In 2006 TVXQ’s album is called "O"-Jung.Ban.Hap. You wrote Mirotic twice for 2006 and 2008.
    - In 2014 EXO’s album Overdose did not have a repackage. So there shouldn’t be (+Rr) in from of the album name.

    This proves nothing it would have been better to do total sales per year instead of just one album as most of these groups had more than one album per year

    This just shows that when there is a top group in kpop they legit block everyone else. I mean its really cool for the fans, but it would be more interesting seeing a backstreet vs nsync scenario where two groups are on par with each other.

    The last time we actually saw this was between h.oT and g.o.d. they actually called each other rivals. Lol

    And geez fans were at each others throats. The fanwars were so legendary that it is talked about till today.
