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:

 

 

 

 

Dismissing TWICE would be foolish.

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

Beyoncé is the biggest western pop girl in korea, everyone there worships her and a lot of idols copy her

How do South Korean consume music?

Streaming 

no one buys albums there

need to implement streaming at a higher rate than sales

It has nothing to do with being bothered. If you're REPEATEDLY told that a pop girl is the biggest in a certain country, it's only logical to question that claim when the charts don't reflect that :cm:

I don't think I've ever even seen SNSD talk about Beyonce, so they obv don't talk about her that much. :rip:

Their album sales are actually incredibly healthy for such a small country. Foreign stars just have weak stats because there's no reason to buy their albums multiple times (for example, each The Boys album came with 1 random member photo card, which got a lot of people double-dipping) and they don't export album sales the way most international fans will ship out Korean albums that get them counted for again.

They once said they want to be 9 Beyonce's. The Hive brings this up all the time despite SNSD being one of the biggest examples of Britney's impact and influence.

They also have members who are literate. What's your point?

 

Anyway, here's their debut:
