Legend:
Numbers in brackets represent how many new physical releases the company has had in 2013
No bracket means only 1
a + represents a live album
.5 represents repackages
if there are 2 repackages then that becomes 1.
I counted VIXX's special album with Y BIRD as .5

  1. thank you, your blog is amazing btw!
    Can you do a company ranking for overseas sales, too, please? I think it's possible and probably pretty easy for Japan/Oricon :)

    2. Small problem with that is artists are under different companies overseas.
      So artists from one company may be split into two different overseas companies. I know not all SM artists are managed by the same Overseas Japanese company. YG artists are because of YGEX but I don't think any other company has all overseas acts in the same place.

    3. oh, you are right! I didn't think about that. Still, it would be neat to see. Overall those overseas sales reflect back on the company in Korea too, right? In SM's case, I know SM Japan is also involved on the managment of their artists in Japan, more than people think.
      But I understand if it's too complicated.
      Thank you again :)

    4. Well we don't know exactly how the contracts work but there are several weird situations like artists that have moved, like BIGBANG from one Japanese company to another but the old company is still releasing material, like Best Albums. Also Korean companies that merged or artists that moved Korean companies may have stayed with the same Japanese company.
      Not to mention that total sales for artists also come from Korean albums sold in Japan distributed sometimes under the Korean company directly or sometimes as Japanese versions.
      Anyways I have a list of all albums, DVDs and singles by Korean artists that charted so I guess anyone who wants can look things up that way?
