    i just wanna know your source. what next? you going to say they only sold out stadiums because of their young asian female fans? we just going to act like the non asian fans that pays hundreds just to travel to see bts won’t pay hundreds for albums? lol come on. give us non asian females credit. i’m african american, and i’ve spends hundreds on tickets, hundreds to travel & on top of that i’ve spent hundreds on albums.


    you’re a hardcore blink yet you discussing bts. let’s go ahead and make a thread about bp sales :).

    No. I am european and my albums are counted on hanteo, since its cheaper to order from there than buy locally.

    Unpopular opinion : BTS sales are unprecedented in the West. A true feat. And ARMYs are well aware that their main sales come from Asia.

    1,250,000 album. So not "millions". Yes I know some of their earlier albums are missing, but those albums don't make up the additional 750k.

    Because no all albums bought in USA counts to US sales. It all depends where did you bought the album - in korean stores, on amazon, Walmart etc. Different places report to different charts. So the actual US sales are much higher but as they were bought in Hanteo affiliated stores they are counted as korean sales.

    Especially in Europe a lot of people were buing their albums from official BigHit store straight from Korea instead from their local markets because of the price difference. MOTS price in some countries were as high as 40-45$ (twice the price that in other countries).

    I know the difference, but have BTS really sold 750k digital songs? No they haven't.

    https://kworb.net/cc/ustotals.html - this chart has been tracking iTunes single sales since 2013. Anything under 150k is not tracked. ZERO BTS songs have appeared on this chart meaning no BTS song has sold over 150k pure sales.

    Nice try!

    Not true, it only won't count if you import it from Korea (obviously). Also, this applies to ALL artists, not just BTS.

    Half of your threads are either about BTS or BTS/BP or BTS armys and you seriously think you're NOT obsessed with BTS.o_O Thank goodness you're not an army cause this fandom had enough of toxic people, we surely do not need you.

    Yeah, you made it crystal clear about it. You will made a total bs threads of either shady or/and downplaying BTS and next you gonna make threads about "oH, aRMys aRE s0 cRueL", "pIty uS", "y0u'rE jUSt jeAL0us" and have your hate jerk circle. And the repeat the cycle again, right. :)

    Did I say that it doesn't apply to other artist?

    When you buy albums in k-pop stores (like ktown4u) or from Amazon (from different seller than official one) those sales are NOT counted as US sales but instead they are counted as Hanteo sales.
    It works the same way in other countries as well.

    Some of you need to calm down, he made a bait thread with an unpopular opinion (which I disagree with too).
    Points were made already, no need to pile on him for pages on end, let the thread die if you disagree with it

    So? You're just making excuses. We're talking about sales made in the US. KTown4U is not a US store, therefore it wouldn't count towards the US charts. Duh.

    You should worry about blackpink having >20Million followers and almost 1B youtube views but only selling about 250k albums and struggling to sell concert tickets in the west. Oh and their dying criminal company who can't afford to give them a comeback

    >only 250k albums
    >struggling to sell out tickets in the west

    Lmao I wish I could sell ONLY 250k albums

    The second one is a lie spread by antis but you people stubbornly believe it

    The OP made a dumb thread but there is no reason to shade BP
