The Changing Face of the Korean Music Industry: Going Back to Live

Gaon recently published an article describing a trend in music sales. With digital music suffering from piracy and no iTunes or Amazon-like digital sales system and fairly low physical sales (compared to the 1990s), recorded music sales are stagnant. Live music sales are, however, increasing.

Before tapes, CDs and digital downloads became prevalent, most people had to attend live events to hear music, limiting the reach of artists often to local areas of a country. Touring was the bread and butter of singers. In the 80s and 90s CDs and then in the 00s digital downloads became big business and in many industries, live events were held to help boost CD sales. This can be seen in fan singing, fan meetings and handshake/touch events, particularly those in which one gains admission through a lottery by buying an album. The costs and profit from the live event are purely made through the boost in album sales.

The market has changed dramatically, particularly in South Korea where cheap access to the internet with often unlimited downloading has led to widespread piracy and then ridiculously low download prices in an attempt to ward off piracy. This has led to a resurgence of live events as the bread and butter of many artists.   Sales from live events is growing in recent years while digital and physical recorded sales remain fairly steady.






















This chart show the expected trajectory of live music event sales compared to recorded (digital and physical) music sales in the next few years with real numbers from 2011 and 2012 used as a base. The red line is live music sales while the green line is recorded. The numbers are in millions of dollars and represent worldwide, not just South Korea.*

The article also mentions that two years (24 months) after their debut, Woollim idol group Infinite had sales (NOT earnings but sales) of 12 billion won ($10,632,000 USD) with 6 billion of those won coming exclusively through concerts/live events. Last year TVXQ's World Tour had an audience of 570,000 people totaling 1 hundred billion won ($88,600,000 USD) in sales which averages to 155 USD in sales per attendee although that may include more than just tickets**. Singer Lee Moon held a solo concert in Jamsil with a total of 80,000 spectators which brought in a lot of money, an amount that is a difficult number for non-idol and/or pop artists to manage through recorded music sales these days. 

This not only means that a wider variety of artists can make money through live events in ways which are no longer possible due to low recorded music sales, but also that artists might make more money as often artists are given a bigger percentage of concert and live event sales than they do of albums and digital sales.

The South Korean government has responded to this trend by building new concert halls, something desperately needed in South Korea. Abroad, if this trend in live event sales does indeed continue, we may see more artists take advantage of overseas support by holding world tours as BIGBANG, 2NE1, G-Dragon, Super Junior, Infinite, DBSK, Xia Junsu and Girls' Generation are doing. Still it seems K-pop companies aren't giving up on recorded music sales as many artists and companies make music available on iTunes worldwide and open eBay and other online stores to sell recorded music directly to international fans. Digital sales in particular have little overhead but with decent pricing can bring in significant profit without the potential investment disaster of a concert with low ticket sales.

What do you think? Are live shows becoming the re-new money makers with prevalent online piracy? Will we see a mix of the two as represented by Psy's concert which was also streamed live? Would you rather spend $150 USD on a ticket or $15 USD on an album?

Fan Club Sizes vs Physical Album Sales

Gaon recently published a list of album sales versus fan club sizes in an article questioning what fan club sizes really represent.
























Here is a chart of official fanclub member numbers (Naver/Daum, with a few exceptions, 2nd column) and sales of a single album from those artists in 2012 (3rd column) with the exception of Cho Yong Pil's Hello and SNSD's I Got a Boy which were released this year. Artists like Super Junior, SHINee, SNSD, Busker Busker and Cho Yong Pil have higher album sales than fan club members with BIGBANG also fairly close. The extra sales can easily come from overseas fans who cannot be part of official fanclubs on sites like Naver and individuals switching fanclubs to support a comeback causing fluctuations.

The real question is those artists who have a much bigger fanclub than sales.  If an individual is dedicated enough to pick being in an artist's fanclub, why wouldn't they buy the album? Infinite, Xia Junsu, B2ST and DBSK all have significantly bigger fanclubs than physical sales. The simple answer might be that many fans chose to buy digitally or perhaps even did not like the specific album and did not buy it. Others have noted that some fans wait to buy repacks if the artist is known for doing them meaning a portion of the fanbase did not buy the original album but did buy the repack, but with sales also coming from overseas and fans not in the specific fanclub, the discrepancy may be even higher.





















(Super Junior, BIGBANG, DBSK, SHINee, B2ST, Infnite, Xiz Junsu, Busker Busker, Cho Yong Pil)

This chart shows the same information in bar graph form with red representing album sales and green the number of fanclub members. There may be other explanations but it is certainly a very interesting look at changing sales patterns and public recognition. Perhaps if digital whole album sales were taken into account we might see that many fans simply prefer to buy digitally or that some artists have fans who are older and do not join online fanclubs but buy albums nonetheless. What do you think these numbers mean?

*Cho Yong Pil's Bounce has been double charting on GAON (once as the single once as the track on the album) so the overall DAs are higher for the song but for now I am using just the single version. Hopefully for the mid-year chart GAON will combine the two.

*Yes I chose to ignore 2PM's actual first week because it represented 6 hours of sales. The point of this list is to compare first 4 weeks of sales and using 2PM's "first week" would show a very skewed number for them, I feel using weeks 2-5 are a better representation of how the song is actually doing. Honestly it doesn't make sense to use 6 hours and call it a "week". If you have a problem with that then go to GAON yourself and get the number using the other week, I've put this notice as a disclaimer to that effect.
