    As we all know BTS and Exo were/are the only 2 groups in the 3rd gen to sell over a million. Just like h.o.t and g.o.d were able to sell a million.
    Do you think selling a million copues will be a norm in the 4th gen? Or will history repeat itself?
    Because in the 2nd gen there was a drastic fall, even amongst the top groups such as tvxq, suju and bigbang. A full generation gap.

    No I don’t think so
    What Armys and EXO-ls has in common is LOYALTY
    They both are loyal to their groups only
    Yeah we have groups selling 300k and such
    But never a million ..
    even NCT is failing to do that and they are in their 4th year ..
    I don’t think we will get any group like them soon

    TXT was the group to test where the current status for Album Sales is, so while they were really good, they weren't at a level that was suggesting a major change.

    Which leaves us to the other BG that will dominate due the impact of the Show, Px101

    Interesting point. Because even BTS and Exo werent at album sales during debut that suggested a major change. I think exo sold 150k for mama?

    But we are in an era with EXO, BTS and TWICE, every group has had 5 million+ Physical Sales before TXT's debut, this was not the case when EXO debut.

    Of course not, it’s hard to buyback cds that way.
