    In my perspective Rookie was the big hit and they beat huge competition and increased in sales both physically and digitally

    Red Flavor would've been number one if it was t for SM cock blocking them with EXO

    How ever Koreans love that song

    It will probably have decent sales but not as big as it's possible potential

    Regardless I think 2017 was a good year for RV

    Watch as SM now work hard to sabotage RV. Because how dare they find success! Don't those girls realise that they are meant to just be a experimental group like f(x)?

    people need to stop talking about hookie being a big hit
    seriously the song just sold 1kk
    is the worst red velvet red side sales since their debut
    lol
    red flavor is a smash actually, but beside this for me is just a normal year for them
    the other girlgroups are just lacking

    It was. They sold well this year. So far thus year no girl groups struck it out the park yet though like they did in 2016. Maybe Twice might or might not do that with their next comeback via TT 2.0

    I don't see anything much that would make it a 'golden' year for them.

    Icecream cake
    Dumb dumb

    Break in relevance that's what i will refer to the velvet

    Russian roulette back to caring about their existence

    Then they did well this year

    That's how I will explain their career

    Red Flavor is charting higher than Kokobop. I think it's longevity will be great.

    Rookie is their best hit so far, but Red Flavor will probably surpass it soon! The power of Wendy tbh. SM finally promoting her as one of their best vocalists~ So happy.

    This year was a good year for RV. But I wouldn't say it's their golden year.Mainly because they were overshadowed a lot.

    i don't look at groups and groups music through 'relevance' and charting, you didn't have to explain anything

    The song itself sold approx. 1.135 million DLs, more than Happiness or ICC, peaked at #3, and the album itself (released 2/1/17) shipped 68,983 by the end of the month, up 20K units about the previous "red" release of Russian Roulette (which was at 48,613 at the end of Sept 2016). That's just a touch more than 1K.

    Normally, IDGAF about the sales, particularly when OP is talking about the quality and attention that RV is getting this year, but I hate misinformation more. If you don't like RV, you could have just ignored the thread instead of coming in to rain on Reveluv's happiness.

    As for OP - yes, definitely feeling like SM has realized that they weren't doing the best they could for RV's success, and they've righted the ship. That would have been enough for me, but the extra attention lately has both been nice and kind of odd, lol.

    Red velvet did amazing this year but overall girls groups this year in 2017 underperformed and I feel like a lot of ppl where let down with many girl group comebacks.

    i wouldn't say so.
    prime is at their very very best. and according to joy they still have so much to give


    on the other hand, you can have multiple golden years. like snsd or kara for example.

    Despite how successful they've been this year, something still feels like it's missing for them. Perhaps a 3RD comeback within 1 year?! Oh god, the thought of them being overworked but at the same time, the thought of RV REALLY raking it in this year and making this year theirs.

    RV has really been shining *cue Wendy's line in Happiness* and while other girl groups are successful as well, they performed better with their previous releases and past year(s) while RV seems to be stepping it up in terms of how well they're performing in terms of figures (like numbers and sales, etc.) and how much the general Korean public are loving their songs and comebacks.

    I do think, however, if Red Flavor is their last comeback for this year, it is still a FANTASTIC year for RV. I think SM is finally handling them better (despite that 1 week promotion and overlap of promotions), as they're highly active so they're staying relevant to the public eye and "fresh", like Twice has been doing ever since they blew up. And honestly, that's what these newer groups need to do because there is so much competition nowadays and the industry and K-Pop fans are so fickle.

    I think their golden year is yet to come but they are doing great, better than most or all the other girl groups. Their album red summer though is gold. They are shinning the most among girl groups so far this year.
