It is just the international albums chart. As in, this one only includes releases that are not in Korean.

This is only for international (non-Korean) albums.

I thought TWICE were the next snsd? Where is their 1m selling albums?

fsksjd Twice has almost outsold SNSD's highest selling Korean album with an EP and within their debut year.  I don't think you can really come for them :skull:

I can if they haven't seen an ounce of SNSD's impact, sales, etc.

Besides coconut head, the others don't have much talent.

South Korea doesn't use any western act besides maybe Adele, Justin and Sam Smith

Nah. Their local acts are just heavily inflated from fan buys and exporting physical albums. That's why Hallyu was such a huge deal.

Aren't half of its sales from a repackage?

Dismissing TWICE would be foolish.

They have yet to peak so we're not sure what they're truly capable of just yet.
