    I remember kpop stans used to claim that most of BTS sales came from the US & western fans. They weren't popular in SK or the rest of Asia. It's ironic how some of you flipped it around every single time.

    How silly really. BTS is popular around the world, Asia population is like 10x larger. No way in heck are Asian artist going to have more sales in the west than Asia if they are both popular in Asia and in the west. So unless BTS is not popular in Asia aswell than they will have more western sales. They are already no.1 in billboard album sales in the U.S three time in 2018-2019 in less than a year.

    I really don't understand what is it with you to either make a thread about BTS or cling your fave name with BTS. Istg the obsession is real and op ain't ready for this discussion yet. Whenever someone asked me about other group's sales, I wouldn't know because /that/ is how much I don't care someone who isn't my fave and I just know op can't relate.

    Distribution of sales isn’t an opinion it’s a fact so why label it an opinion?

    If 80% of BTS sales are Asian than about 98% of our faves are too lmao.

    I would expect a blink to understand how stupid it is to criticize a group for having a lot of Asian fans considering the flak that blackpink get for having "mostly SEA fans"
    Next time someone makes a dumb thread like this aimed at blackpink, you'll be the first one to call them out on it, but I hope you remember that you are no better.

    When it comes to BTS’ achievements, it’s mandatory to conveniently shift the goalposts every time to suit their narrative, even if it means pulling claims about their fanbase out of thin air.

    Hanteo sales don’t just come from Asians as many Western international fans buy their albums from those retailers too. Target and Amazon’s album sales also count towards Hanteo.

    And unlike OP’s claims that BTS’ support mostly comes from Asians, one thing’s for sure, majority of BTS’ YouTube views and streams come from North and South America while BP’s streams mostly come from SEA. These are based on YT’s own stats LMAO!

    Then claiming that the fans who buy BTS’ albums in the US are mostly Asian American based on...opinions and wishful thinking sounds a lot like Japanese netizens who accused BTS’ American concert goers of mostly being Asian when just one glance at the people in their crowds would actually prove the opposite.

    If you think about it, the whole continent of Asia is much much much bigger than the US. Sales in Asia are important too as well as sales in the US. But I really do think a good chunk of the sales are from Asia since BTS is super popular there in comparison to the US. Asia has big markets like China and Japan, and many, many, many countries in the SEA area. I wouldn't say 88% of the sales are from Asia but at least 60% of the sales are from Asia. The other 40% chunk is taken by the US, Europe, Africa, and Australia.
