    their physical album sales are seriously ,,, so tragic . even underrated group like weki meki and clc can sell better than them . why is it happen ? bboom bboom almost reached 400m views , their recent comeback already gain 35m view in just one week plus , all their song since bboom2 dont really chart well but atleast they manage to chart on melon for few couple days . Nancy herself are really popular internationally and hve crazy fanboys . Almost all their dances are well known among kpop fans . Momoland also manage to make a sold out fanmeeting at japan,dubai and mexico.Even can held a concert on an arena at philipines But why they have such a terrible album sales ?

    this proves nothing. nancy is known in the way jung chaeyeon is known but she ain't exactly what you'd call popular internationally and most of those fanboys would watch any girl wearing pussy shorts. literally any girl.

    Most Momoland fans are probably from the Filipines or Vietnam and those countries don't really buy albums. They tend to buy their music on iTunes or somehow. If a group is successful in Korea or Japan, more people will buy their albums.

    momoland has a bunch of casual fans who check out their music due to the success of bam but has a small fandom and majority of it is international who don't buy physicals but will stream

    great thread
    tbh i dont have an answer, but lemme try
    most ppl expect them just to put out a catchy song and it seems like they dont have a lot of die hard fans who will invest in their albums.
    some ppl say their fans are lazy listeners, what reminds me of sm luna situation. fans will ask for support, but wouldnt buy shit themselves
    CLC probs has better sales cause company supporters, while weki meki has a lot of supportive fans since IOI era
    i would also say that k-pop idols in general dont make often (or at all) fan meetings in Mexico or Dubai, so thats probs the reason why they sold out

    I think Philippines literally support them x10 more than their home country

    They literally started singing songs from Philippines, just like how T-ara started singing Chinese songs in China because South Korea don't know how to appreciate them.

    Same thoughts for T-ara that time when they were active. I knew T-ara was famous in China but not THAT FAMOUS

    https://www.allkpop.com/article/2019/12/2019-the-most-streamed-kpop-artists-in-china

    #1 EXO (7,298,655,131)

    #2 BIGBANG (5,049,927,881)

    #3 T-ARA (3,944,676,066)

    #4 LAY (EXO) (1,919,331,623)

    #5 SNSD (1,826,991,000)

    #6 G-DRAGON (BIGBANG) (1,601,778,459)

    #7 F(X) (1,296,000,442)

    #8 TAEYEON ( SNSD) (977,123,088)

    #9 SUPER JUNIOR (567,029,664)

    #10 IU (553,122,767)

    Indefinite Hiatus group Ranked #3 like what even????

    If Momoland can do really well in SEA in not just Philippines but in other SEA countries then that might be the route they are gonna focus on.

    they don't have core fans. people who stream or watch music videos = casual interest
    buying album = core interest

    The reason is same with CLC, they lack a strong domestic fanbase. Fanbase usually form in the rookie years.
    CLC & MOMOLAND didn't gain a strong domestic fanbase on their rookie years.
    Obviously korean fans doesn't stan old groups even though that group is VERY popular. Idk whats the main reason but domestic fans only stan on rookie groops.

    Well their is exception like NUE'ST but idk anymore groups than them.

    Depending on what you consider a flop. They still do well compared to other nugus but never reached the peak that they once did. Roly Poly/Lovey Dovey T-ara was on the rise to compete with SNSD and 2NE1, but it didn't happen because of the scandal which was proven to be false. By the time everything was cleared up, it was too late.

    No, you can't compare them with CLC or any other nugus.. They don't have the same level of fame/popularity. The better comparison would be Sistar, or maybe Sistar would be a better object of question for this thread.
