    Did you expect that? Blackpink almost sells the double of Ikon and that in this short time.




    Hanteo sales:
    Blackpink = 120k
    Winner = 88k
    Ikon = 67k


    BigBang highest physical album sales in korea:
    Remember in 2008 sold 337,920
    Made in 2015 sold 259,779

    Honestly, yes. I thought they will sell better than most YG groups.

    Hope iKON will sell more. Return is a masterpiece. Damn BlackPink though. And to think this is just their first physical album ❤️

    I was saying before the comeback that I wouldn't be surprised if they went against the norm for YG groups in physical sales.

    Then you are one of the few exception. So many people said only 50-80k. But Blackpink surprised everyone with this comeback. So happy for them :yesr:

    However a good marketing strategy of YG was, to cover the physical album production on ~250k

    We had 400k album pre-orders global! So a low amount increases demand. ;):cool:

    As we can see ARMY is arguably the most powerful fandom of this generation and with the comeback of BLACKPINK, the BLINKS shook the whole world with their fandom power breaking records left and right from korea to international! and so they have now established a very respected fandom and proved that even though they are rookies they manage to do those kinds of things. And me as an army and blink itself, i was surprised how big my fandom BLINK was hahaha so what do you think? HOW MUCH RECORD CAN BOTH ARMY AND BLINK will break if they are gonna unite :)
