    Their previous album both beat 400k mark in its first week since release


    Their current album sits at 360k after 10 days


    Hype worked until now, but you have do maintain the hype by quality releases. Their previous releases weren't that great, but new one is just horrible. It underperforms on charts, underperfoms on youtube, underperforms in sales and EVEN on naver top100 where they would grab 50 out of 100 positions and mainly on top but right now Shinee dominates them there.

    There also were numerous reports of poor quality of album packaging and other merchandise. Seems like Mnet is playing "minimum investment, maximum outcome" tactic right now, since only 6 month left until disbandment.

    It's a special album. Lol. It's not even mini album or full album and they just had a comeback in end of the March.

    Stop reaching. With these two albums they still have sold over at least 1.2 million in 2018.

    And what has MNET got to do with Wanna One?

    Underperforms on charts yet it sits on #3 all day long on Melon. Wanna Flop, eh.

    I mean they're disbanding anyway and their sales are still 300k.
    They literally have 6 months left, ofc their quality is bound to lack, because they keep on coming back & back they literally have no break
    300k is still insane, just saying

    Have YOU sold 300k?

    no but for real they have had some really great songs now they are just throwing songs out there trying to stay relevant, ofcourse the quality is going to decrease. They are still good tho no need to hate.

    They're gonna disband soon anyway. Might as well milk the shit out of them especially since they're still capable of selling that much. Those aren't bad numbers. I'd kill for my faves to sell like that.

    ain't nobody care about music lmao. the fandom is full of akgaes trying to get their bias photocard
    their last album was 2 months ago,
    korean teens don't shit money to bulkbuy every two months.

    beside their company, nobody cares how much they sell cuz they're disbanding anyways.

    It is a mini album. What makes it "special" is that they formed sub units and colaborated with different famous artists. It should've only pushed the sales. Also their title song is a full group song. And they promote it. Put it as you wish, it is real comeback.

    You mean realtime night streaming? They are actually at 8th position on daily chart.

    I don't know why you are so concerned for a group you supposedly don't care about. You act like rest of the fandoms buy albums because of the quality, lmao, when everyone are only after items in the album. The chance that anyone actually takes CD out of these physical albums is pretty slim when there is YouTube and Spotify. So why is Wanna One any different? Just move on.

    I am just analizing, that's pretty fucking normal, stop being so childish. Wanna One lack hit songs and it is obvious. With their brand power, with their recognition even a decent song would do extremely well. Other groups have to climb the charts starting from bottom but in W1's case fans will bring everything they release to top of the charts, after that it is up to public and it is a shame that none of their songs is catched by public. Having that power and still not being able to have a hit song? That's a waste.

    You can analyze in the bashing thread. You don't have to make a separate thread for it when your intention is pretty clear.

    Making such threads is a waste too when you could make a thread to promote your favourites instead.

    YMC is an awful company, though i'm not sure if Swing is going to be any better. 368k is still great, but this group did 500k on a repackage.

    It's slowing down for sure for them, but it's understandable they didn't have a lot going for them besides hype. I think they still have a fandom though just maybe not a building GP interest.
