  1. 1) EXO-K: 602,576

    Those sales are for the Korean ver of EXO + EXO K since EXOM sales and Chinese ver of EXO are counted as international album?

    Its confusing. You should separate EXOK sales from EXO Korean ver sales ... Cuz last year Gaon counted EXO Chinese and Korean ver together and EXOK and EXOM sales separately.

    Thank you ;-)

    1. I count whatever is on the domestic chart of GAON.
      If it has Exo on it and its on the domestic chart then I add it to Exo's total.
      Not confusing at all.

      And GAON never counted the Chinese version of any Exo albums on the domestic chart. Its HANTEO not GAON that mixed Exo last year but separates Exo-K from Exo-M. Which is why there is Exo, Exo-K and Exo-M as three separate artists on Hanteo.

  2. Wow, I am so used to read about the "big 3" that I never questionned the situation.
    But for real, the sum of all 11 smaller companies is nearly exactly the same as the number of sales made by SM alone... This is basically a monopoly.
    And JYP is completey marginalized and replaced by CUBE who has already gained a good lead over its competitors minus SM.

    This is eye opening, thanks for sharing!
