    Let's forget views because it's way too late now. I mean.. Twice broke record of 200M, 300M, 350M ( Bigbang record ), 400M for GGs and Blackpink will probably take care of the rest
    So BP and Twice are walls when it's about views
    In sales, Red Velvet increased right? They used to be Gfriend level, 70 to 80k. But they improved right? At the end of this gen, when people will stop their activities will Red Velvet take Twice's n.1 GG spot? Will Red Velvet have more sales and be known as the top GG?
    I mean SM had S.E.S and SNSD in the past.. they probably want to lead this gen too
    But Twice sells 350k on average and sold almost 2M this year....

    Don't consider this as a shade I love RV but even if twice disbands right now RV won't reach their total sales.

    Twice's sales will be freaking impossible for any group to beat. Only place Twice can be beaten is cf (they do have Irene after all and Twice does team cfs and they haven't started their solo activities yet so who knows) and maybe in the downloads? Idk it'll be interesting to see

    too late to be national GG but in terms of hits and digital sales the rivalry will always be there.

    Edit - (just read your post) idk if SM was doing to national GG this time around the whole concept, in general, is not so easy to the GP to grasp. I mean In terms of if Twice took a Long ass break the way Wonder girls did back in the day Red Velvet probably be the runner-up if they put out consist red side hits.

    No,in terms of sale Twice is a massive wall that no one can currently beat. I think it will be a long time until someone can beat them at that.

    The numbers are just Crazy no chance for Rv and a tiny chance for bp to get 2nd. I really do not believe they will ever release enough music to get in the game.

    Nope, only BP could but still TWICE is not that huge wall some people are making them out to be, after all Red Flavor became fastest song to reach 2.5M, AIIYL is coming to that mark too, DDDD is the biggest song by a GG this gen and Power Up is also really huge, AND BP also outsold them in Hanteo with a 4-track mini album, so for now TWICE is safe but another year of this and they will fall behind.

    But I'm not talking about views..



    If this isn't a wall then I'm seriously wondering what a wall is
    I doubt blackpink could beat those numbers
    But I want to know if Red velvet as a chance
    they have been around for so long. Solid fanbase. Sales increasing. Maybe they could be close? Idk

    Red Velvet would have to double their album sales to match Twice for 1 album and let alone match Twices sheer amount of output so my answer is no.

    You do know DTNA was a repack. It also only had 3 new songs. Twice is the only 3rd gen girl group to have 3 songs over 2.5 downloads on GAON.

    If Blackpink starts releasing more songs on a regular basis, then they might beat Twice. Red Velvet needs to be more consistent in their music quality imo. Their songs are kinda hit and miss. Some are great like Bad Boy, and some songs are just not good enough to compete with BP and Twice. The only awful release from either BP and Twice is Signal and even that song won SOTY.

    Maybe, but extremely unlikely. YG groups usually thrive on hype, which is why they have a slow release schedule. Twice's wall in Korea is slowly getting smaller, but they are still a wall.

    Outselling on Hanteo-that's not a sales chart as much as a recorder for which stores it was bought from. In terms of sales the album Square Up supposedly 'outsold' is currently sitting over a 100K above it on Gaon and still after 3 months isn't even plat' certified-something the album it was supposed to have outsold did in it's first Gaon update.

    As for with a '4 track mini' lol said album that sold a 100K more only had 3 new songs on it and didn't need almost 2 years of hype.

    Twice are the only GG to have 2.5m on 3 songs and currently have the highest selling, longest charting in top 10 and 100 on MelOn song for a GG. They also are the only GG with 4 100m stream songs too this gen'. Also destroyed Big Bangs record on Billboard.

    Not to mention Wake Me Up(4 Ver') has sold more than every BP physical combined(11 Ver) so sit down.

    Twice sold 1.8M sales this year, means probably +2M sales next year, and they sold 1.4M last year. RV has to catch up on all of this, it's impossible not only for them but for any other GG
