    Overcome in what? Total sales? Popularity? Number of MVs/albums? Be more specific.

    The album sales of BG were high, but SNSD's popularity was big enough to surpass them.

    The numbers these days increased A LOT. With EXO and BTS selling over 1m copies with one album.

    I don't think Twice can beat that, their album sales are actually quite steady but with a little decrease since the What Is Love Mini ( which is their highest selling album at the moment with 701k copies).

    They either already peaked when it comes to sales, or we gotta wait a year to see how the mini's they released after WIL are doing.
    So for now i don't think they can beat the BG's sales, maybe digitally but not physically. BG's got a bigger dedicated fanbase.

    I mean their Latest Mini Album became:
    The fastest on Hanteo to reach 200k
    The fastest on Gaon to reach 400k
    The only GG album to reach 400k and 200k on Gaon and hanteo.
    The fastest and 2nd album of twice to reach 400k.
    The 3rd Best selling GG album in history already in less than 2 Months.

    This is quite tough. It will take a very long time so it's hard to judge. Twice's sales are around 7m right? EXO's sales atm are around 11m (12m incoming probably, since their comeback is this month). BTS sales are around 17m if I remember right, their comeback next year will be over 3-4m as well. If Twice manages to release music steadily and hit big numbers they might surpass EXO's sales (if they become inactive for a while) in a few years . As for BTS, I don't think there will be any group, female or male, than can reach those numbers for a long time.

    Judging by this, BTS sales are actually higher as well. So regarding BTS, the answer might be "never", only if they're EXTREMELY lucky. As for EXO, they might do it in a few years, but that depends on their future sales.

    They may surpass EXO's numbers if they will do many rounds of HANDSHAKE EVENTS and HI-TOUCHES for every Japanese release they may sell like AKB48 and have 1m to 1.5M copies per album.

    You are running out of good topics harcoreonce:p

    The only group twice couldn't outsell in the last two years was bts, and nobody is stupid enough to believe that snsd could outsell bts if they were active at the same time.

    Are any past boy groups even on BTS level? The answer is not.

    I would not call 4 million from Super Junior as high by the current boy group standard. Only the over 10 years active boy group like TVXQ has the same level of album sales as the current top boy groups.

    The chart suggest the trend of top boy groups' increasing album sales but decreasing trend for girl groups. Honestly, Twice is the only one to maintain the standard set by the past girl group generation and there are still more to come.

    Bts' popularity is really unprecedented.

    They are not only popular in Korea Japan and US the traditional Kpop market. They have broken in to markets of Europe America Australia, basically the whole world. So basically i dont think there is any competition from any gen that could BTS at its peak.

    So no i dont see Twice overcoming BTS, unfortunately

    SNSD didnt have as high sales as TVXQ, as much public or digital success as Big Bang and were far off a few groups touring ability.

    SNSD were never the 1 top. 1 year they had the highest album sales for and individual disc but that was in a time when 300k would win it.

    I mention them on the 'overrated girl group' thread and I dont even regret it. Overrated doesnt mean bad. But just look at BTS numbers and see if SNSD could realistically beat that. EXO is several years older than Twice while TVXQ is like a never aging boy group who had 3 times the lifespan of Twice at the moment. Twice is already a 4 years old girl group and those groups make Twice look like a rookie in comparison.
