So I've been seeing people get self-righteously bent out of shape in regards to bundles when it comes to album sales. I personally don't care enough to have a stance for or against bundles, but imo there's nothing really different between bulk album buying and bundles—both are still inflating the "oRgAniC" sales of albums, so I don't get why bulk album buying is seen as okay but merch bundles (which almost everyone, including BTS, SuperM and now Monsta X) are seen as playing dirty. I remember when I first got into kpop I was surprised to learn what a fansite was and how fansites were using their profits to bulk buy albums to increase sales for the group. There were also extremely wealthy fans who were bulk buying thousands on albums to get higher chances at a fansign. I'd like to know if you guys see a difference between the two and why you do. What are your reasons for one being okay and the other not being okay? PLEASE, no shadiness, no arguing, no dragging other groups, no attacking other users. I really just want to have a mature, basic conversation about this without immature toxicity just because someone can't quell the urge to throw off on another group.
