Pann: Top 20 physical sales of idol groups in history

[+95, -22] Why do I feel like BTS will break all the records…

[+82, -14] BTS’ rank will go every higher, daebak

[+80, -12] BTS’ sales are amazing

[+41, -4] BTS is the first domestic artist in 16 years since god to sell one album more than 1 million copies.

 [+39, -1] The physical market was very different back then. BTS’ record in present day is really amazing.

 [+21, -5] BTS #3, wow…

[+19, -12] I thought EXO was the king of physical sales ㅋㅋㅋㅋ They caused a fuss when EXO didn’t win the album award. How come they’re not on the top 20? Was it a lie that they sold more than 1 million? Was it a lie that they sold 1 million within days?

[+12, -0] BTS’ 1.66M doesn’t even count the Amazon sales… Their new album will be counted on Hanteo so we could look for #1.
