    I am sick of people disregarding the fact that exo's first albums shouldn't count as million sellers since they have a chinese version.
    little history, when exo was 12 every album they had after mama they would have a title track which depending on the language would change the line distribution and then after promoting in korea as a whole for a little while they would split into units and promote in either korea or china, hence being a korean chinese boy group.
    To those people if you were to listen to exo's albums you would notice that the chinese albums had the songs sung by exo-m while korean album was sung but exo-k, once combined then they are exo not separately. It's seems pretty simple i dont see why people have a hard time understanding

    Also because i had some say this as an excuse, no other groups that have foreign members are not the same because they were not marketed that way, they are referred to as korean groups because they have always performed in korea with korean albums they may have seperate debuts in different countries like japan but are still a korea group promoting in japan. exo is referred to as a korean chinese group because of the units that make up the group.

    thats it, thank you for your time

    Finally, someone who gets it. They are a Korean -Chinese boy group not just a Korean one.

    Finally someone said it! I’m sick of people saying Exo aren’t true million sellers ! I’m sure if bts was korean Chinese they would release in two different languages as well!

    The keyword is pure though, meaning that BTS are the first to sell over 1 million with one version.

    Ouh with that versions thing ..chinese fans buy chinese version .. Korean and international fans buy the korean version for other groups they all buy the same thing so there is no difference .
    Exo are a quadruple million seller and our 5 million is coming soon .

    does not matter if you all try to fool yourselves or not, is there one physical álbum or are there 2 physical albums? 2 ítems with different barcode because they are different, one in Korean , One in Chinese, if they want to count them together, put them together in one álbum
    EXO is a korean group formed by a korean entertainment and they have some members who sing in chinese as a unit..., the same with CBX too, japanese albums...different albums, different sales

    I see the argument you're making but CBX's japanese albums have different tracks to their korean ones and therefore they are different albums; Exo's korean and chinese albums have the exact same tracklist but the group performs them in different languages.

    Personally I don't see how counting the exact same album in 2 different languages is much different from counting albums with x amount of different covers.

    i did not mean CBX japanese albums, but CBX as a unit, just like EXO M, they are all EXO but the product is different, it can not be the SAME album if there are differences between the 2, i.e ,the language, it's the same when you buy 2 equal shirts, but one in red and one in black, so the barcodes are different, and the sales are counted separately, because they are not the exact same ítem.
    albums covers are exactly the same álbum, because the songs are exactly the same

    But surely the different covers could also be equated to the shirts. The picture on the shirt/the songs on the album are exactly the same but the colour/the covers are different. Both are minor changes made to the product by the company for pretty much no reason other than to sale more and maximise profit. Like I said I see why you feel the way you do, especially about the bar codes (although I can't say I've looked to see if the different covers have the same or different one) but to me the different languages aren't enough to constitute not counting the chinese sales.

    with your comparison tho then different versions should be different because the songs are the same but the album including pictures (which take up the most of a physical album) are different.

    I do not agree that the Chinese albums and Korean albums should count as the same album on Korean music shows, because one is Chinese of course; however, EXO still has sold a tremendous amount of albums regardless in China, Korea, and the rest of the world combined. So with that being said, do not discount EXOs earnings as a group people. They've been here dominating sales for years. So when putting EXO against a junior group they've still probably sold more than their juniors so far. Anticipate the comeback of OGs EXO.

    not, the cover could be equated to the bag which is used to put into the shirts, there are bigger, smaller, plastic, paper…
    the article on sale is the álbum not the covers...my favourite book has changed 3 times of cover in 3 editions, but the book is the same so the sales are counted the same..they are dumb examples, you can think or feel whatever you want, putting aside emotional feelings and different points of view about this, from a comercial pov it is what it is, we can not change that.

    what are you buying? the álbum with the songs, or covers and photocards? the package is not on sale...i put an example to other user about this with books and the changing covers through editions.

    Those people understand the point clearly but are just too delulu to admit because they have to find another reason to discredit Exo!

    Everyone knows that a Bible translation in one Language written in English and one written in French are the same Bible with the same meaning and message but different language, if they are too pressed to understand that then it's their problem.

    It's more like a translation but of course, for someone who wants drama and wants their favs to catch up or even surpass in sales will still try to deny it just for drama!
