    We all know east asia is still in the physical sales business
    But army ain't ready for this discussion,now they saying TS isn't even their competition when ts main markets don't do physical sales anymore,can you imagine how many physical sales she can do in china but it's all digital sales & Adele lol 90% of Adele sales are from the west..
    BTS main bases is Japan,Korea,china where fangirls are known to dedicate their entire existence to their idols,so I wouldn't be surprised if 2.5M of those 3.5M physical sales are strictly from these 3 countries & some SEA countries for the rest
    The truth is only US army(mostly young,female Asians) heavily bulkbuy physical in the west like what 350K?,in Europe + UK maybe only 250K albums have been sold,rest is all digital sales & some minor streams
    BTS has Japan,china,Korea to thank for their incredible album sales & western army should too ^_^

    I wish you would just stop making BTS threads... Let their fans be concerned about the group.

    Sales in Asia is cheaper than in the west and population is way larger.

    BTS sold millions of American records.

    You say mostly young Asian female ?
    I DARE YOU TO SHOW ME PROOF ?


    Because if you look at BT21 store or any vlog you can see the females are not Asian but mostly Latina, White, Black (85-90%)

    Edit: I need edit this to show how bias this question is. BTS is extremely popular in the west and in Asia but Asia population is 5-10x larger, you can't compare fairly and sales are cheaper in Asia and population is far more numerous. UNLESS BTS IS NOT POPULAR IN ASIA, THERE'S NO WAY THAT BTS WILL HAVE MORE SALES IN THE WEST THAN IN ASIA. BECAUSE THERE'S WAY MORE PEOPLE IN ASIA So unless BTS is not popular in Asia aswell than they will have more western sales than Asian sales. They are already no.1 in billboard album sales in the U.S three time in 2018-2019 in less than a year and the most sold out concerts in U.S and Europe tours with the largest numbers of western fans.


    ADELE IS NOT POPULAR IN ASIA

    BTS IS POPULAR IN BOTH ASIA AND WEST

    BTS FANS IS ALWAYS RACIALLY DIVERSE

    And? Even if they are? It doesn't make it any less important.

    I hope you are not implying that Asian sales are irrelevant

    This looks like a attempt for you to say BTS is only popular with Asian army while any picture with large crowd will show you wrong

    This is about BTS physical sales
    It's obvious BTS is a popular group worldwide,best indicator is their touring numbers like BP

    I wonder if other Europeans like me buying from Asian sites because it's cheaper counts as an Asian sale.

    In the US their physical sales is good
    In the rest of the western countries it's not significant.
    For NCT it's weak,they had like 27K sales but it's alot of bundles & they couldn't even sell 2K physical the next week
    I dunno about exo

    So plenty of those Asian sales you mentioned could be from people like me who don't prefer to pay a lot more to buy it from the store here.

    In the rest of the western countries their sales is also mostly physical
    For NCT Superhuman it was 25,000 out of 27,000 physical.

    ALSO IT'S MORE EXPENSIVE TOO.
