    Congrats to Wanna One! This is so amazing, they've already sold 520K albums based on Hanteo's counting system - expected to be notably more for Gaon. Right now, they're second only to EXO. Can't wait to see what else these boys accomplish!

    LOL maybe MAMA will have a curve ball and they'll win Artist of the Year and stop all our debates ;D

    I knew CJ E&M wasn't lying about it as some people suspected.
    According to one Korean article there were about 600 000 pre-orders so it'd be nice to see if they can sell that much. :')

    they're mnet's children so you never know ;D but yeah I agree with you for the most part. Can you honestly imagine the outrage and backplash Mnet would get?

    Dangggg, good job boys! So proud of them! Hope they'll stay healthy and get some rest! With all of this success, they'll have a busy schedule ahead of them when they come home from Kcon. Dang.

    I wouldn't say it's impossible though. TWICE won a daesung on their rookie year and W1 is arguably having the same impact. I'm personally looking forward to the tea :siptear:

    It's not official until gaon releases the numbers, they can have less sales than bts if the biggest part of their sales come just from hanteo.

    It is official. Gaon isn't the only counting organization. Both Hanteo and Gaon are equally important. From my understanding, Gaon also counts in store inventory of albums that haven't officially been sold to the end consumer. Gaon numbers are just what we see floating around because they're usually more impressive and are used for year end awards. Either way, this is an official counting organization so it's official lol.

    twice didnt get artist of the year.
    it was song of the year. i didnt say that they cant get daesangs i said artist of the year.
    realisticaly speaking they won't get it. and if they do the show is rigged cuz IU, GD, EXO , Taeyeon, BTS, TWICE heck even Blackpink and Winner had more impact than them.

    regardless the rangking, this is impressive number for debut album and lack of i-fandom.
    I just hope mine's wont take too long to be shipped :cryingr: (i didn't pre order)

    Gaon counts the total sales, Hanteo is the biggest distributor but gaon counts Hanteo + other sales. Hanteo usually counts SK sales, that's why Bts's sales increase a lot when gaon releases their numbers, because a big part of their sales aren't from SK.
    I think W1 is going to surpass Bts, but it's not official yet.
