Is this realistic?

yes. preorders are in the millions overall. just ktown4u (kpop store for international fans outside korea) has them at 850,000k+

Maybe because we don't care about them on here? Like sure, their fans are happy about this but someone who doesn't stan them has no reason to have any sort of reaction to this. Good for the girls, give them their money, but other than that, so what?

Because pure sales are not an indicator of mainstream success anymore, but of fanbase level of loyalty/obsession.

I didnt say they are not successful

But this thread is specifically talking about the pure sales. Can't you read?

 

Not like I expect you to be an intelectual based on your music taste tho...I have to say.

And at the end of the day, they still sell less in total because everything is about first week

I mean, not the best example since it all comes down to difference in musical landscapes between regions :rip: 

First week sales between the west and Kpop are very different and the biggest western act isn’t going to sell this many copies first week, but overall they will still demolish these numbers. It’s like how The Album outsold folklore initially but Folklore surpassed it and is far ahead now, because people are still heavily consuming it unlike most Kpop albums which are objectively frontloaded and carried by the fans/pure sales. Same thing will happen with Midnights and Born Pink.

 

Plus ATRL is a western centric pop music forum tbh what do you expect :deadbanana: I think things are changing though with lots of Kpop fans joining, so… but yeah these numbers are unfathomable and should be discussed more. If Kpop sales keep growing and they release another full album (whenever that may be :rip:) I wonder if they can clear 10M SPS with that one, obv not first week but overall eventually :lakitu: I believe they’re the only ones besides BTS who can.

Didn’t BTS do like 4M or something though?
