    Article on Oricon above.

    That's a personal high for Twice and the best sales for a 3rd gen GG Korean album in Japan in a week. Topping off with a record breaking Hanteo showing Twice week 1 sales already at 150+K which again is an all time high for a Korean GG mini.

    Edit: Which is also higher than any Japanese release by a Kpop GG of this year after only 1 week.

    I can't wait to see the Gaon number. It's gonna easy clear 300+k.

    I knew that girl groups sold less physical albums, but I didn't realize the difference was that much. Congratulations to Twice and Onces

    @lighterxx Yeah but it's okay for a GG, this is far and away best of the best of Korean GG's which tells you of the mentality difference of BG and GG fanbases.

    Like Twice are famous in Japan and don't sell as much as SEVENTEEN, Who can't even scrape above 400k dl's in Korea.

    The thing is they DO sell a lot in Japan. It's huge for a GG. It's swings and roundabouts really.

    Like Twice is the only GG in Korea right now able to sell more than 340k albums, second place is more than 120k below them. But even BG's who can barely chart in Korea these days like Got7 can sell as much or a bit more.

    But on the flip side, these BG's aren't really successful on digital, like it's out of reach for most BG's to touch 500k DL's but when a top GG used to post that they were considered 'ended' lol.

    Edit which is why it is also why only 2 groups have higher combined sales than Twice this year, BTS and Wanna One(well technically not W1 yet)

    I think it relates to mentality of Koreans more than anything. Its not like BGs release horrid songs, public just sees them as boy groups who is after fangirls and refuse to listen them.

    You can clearly see that with Winner. They dont see Winner as a boy group but a band, therefore their digitals are alot better. Same case for girl groups, the ones that got known for going after boy groups, always get really small digitals.
