this isn't a thread I just have a question. Where can I find reliable sales for kpop groups?
Gaon, the album chart, there're weekly (without sales), monthly and yearly
I linked it to May 2018 monthly, but you can also see yearly numbers. If you want accurate total sales for yourself, you can search through the site and add up the numbers.
But most fandoms have threads where they tally sales, like on OneHallyu. Do a Google search and you'll find it.
I can't guarantee accuracy or immediate updating, but it's pretty good.
Every month Gaon posts monthly album sales.
Hanteo. You need a subscription to Hanteo to see their numbers but just search twitter for hanteo numbers and you can find them.
Difference between Gaon and Hanteo. Gaon measures shipments from the distributor to stores. Hanteo measures sales from Hanteo affiliated stores to individual consumers.
A high Gaon number and low Hanteo number usually means that a lot of stock is still sitting on store shelves. Sometimes the Gaon number can go down if distributors buy back unsold stock. Hanteo numbers shouldn't exceed Gaon numbers.
