* a few notes:
- in albums anything labeled (Korean) simply means it was a Korean release that was later sold in Japan and not whether it was a Japan edition or not.
- DVD and BluRay numbers have been combined for overall totals, these are from unofficial numbers since I couldn't find Oricon's official DVD/BluRay list yet.
- Over 50 DVDs, 90 singles and 100 albums have charted on Oricon's chart from Korean artists this year a rise from last year.
- Not many female rookies this year, in fact the runner up, Orange Caramel had 14,682 in sales, just 200 more than the Wonder Girls
- Most Improved is chosen by subtracting last year's sales from this year's. Kim Hyun Joong's sales grew by 286,863 units, Big Bang by 256,703
- Rising stars are chosen by a slow and steady increase in sales, someone I think might become big sellers in the future (more of an opinion this one)

Looking forward to 2013!

  1. thanks for your info. Even their sell are still good but compared to last year it's really different. This year both KARA and SNSD didn't sell out well compared to previous album and single. umm Why?

    1. After their first singles of 2012 there seems to have been a general drop in sales for the two girl groups.
      One reason might be the general anti-Hallyu trend that makes it more difficult for some Korean artists to promote in Japan which would impact girl groups who have more casual and general public fans than male groups do in general
      Another reason might be, for Kara particularly, lac of consistent and poor promotions, their newest album only had two promotional singles and they didn't really promote too many songs off the album itself. They haven't been as active on SNS or variety shows in Japan either compared to before.
      It could also have been that Kara's songs were very different form their biggest hits, Mister, Go Go Summer and Jet Coaster Love. Those were all upbeat and cute while their recent stuff id darker and more electronic.
      Those are all just guesses though and we'll have to wait and see how they do on their next few singles.
