‘I Got A Boy’ Places First on Gaon Monthly Album Chart



Girls’ Generation’s “I Got A Boy” album came in first on Gaon’s monthly album chart for January 2013. According to the chart, “I Got A Boy” sold 265,322 copies in its first month since release. The girls placed ahead of Kim Jaejoong and CNBLUE, who were the second and third place artists, respectively.

“I Got A Boy” also topped the Hanteo monthly chart for January, selling over 100,000 copies since the girls’ New Year’s Day comeback, when the album received an all-kill, ranking first on popular Korean digital music charts including MelOn, Bugs!, Daum, and Naver. “I Got A Boy” remains in the top six for Hanteo’s daily sales through the first week of February, showing Girls’ Generation’s continued success with their latest Korean release.

Congrats Soshi bbs <3 i loooooove IGAB! get those sales get that cash give me a repackage soon!
lelouchikaru 7th-Feb-2013 02:29 pm (UTC)
I think their repackage will be a bit longer due to their Japan Arena Tour ;A;
changminshim 7th-Feb-2013 05:56 am (UTC)
jaejoong did great despite the lack of promos.

congrats to my two bbs!
nyokou 7th-Feb-2013 06:03 am (UTC)
Hoping IGAB breaks the 500k mark eventually. *__*
lelouchikaru 7th-Feb-2013 02:28 pm (UTC)
If they broke 500,000, they might be the first girl group after SES who sold that amount of copies. SES's third to their last album sold 678,000 copies, I guess.

congrats ^-^
rinn1e 7th-Feb-2013 06:22 am (UTC)
JJ would sell more if it weren't out of stocks. CJES didn't see it coming, lol, after 120k was sold, they only make 20k more.
jeit91 7th-Feb-2013 06:33 am (UTC)
yeah...but how many did SM buy back?
stephantasm 7th-Feb-2013 06:50 am (UTC)
I thought you were talking about jaejoong and started laughing
wowwh 7th-Feb-2013 06:43 am (UTC)

RIP omona
falling_empress 7th-Feb-2013 08:19 am (UTC)
tbh i love i got a boy...i hated it the first time and then it just grew on me like some horribly good disease...
nissy_angel 7th-Feb-2013 08:31 am (UTC)
Same. I hated it at first. But a part of it got stuck in my head, so I listened to it again. I love it now.
fancifury 7th-Feb-2013 08:49 am (UTC)
congratulations yoona!
harisukaori 7th-Feb-2013 09:50 am (UTC)
Yay for CNBLUE :D Great album and really good sales :)
And these numbers prove that the article about buybacks and their numbers being higher on Hanteo than Gaon is false.

And IGAB is a grower. At first I was like 'meh' and now it's stuck in my head. Especially after you suffer through the beginning the rest is just great ^^

I could probably deal with igab if I could separate the song from the awful outfits/concept look because it's just so not SNSD to me. I mean yeah they're colorful but it just screams girl group trendy. Leopard leggings, really?
scubajr 7th-Feb-2013 12:12 pm (UTC)
So proud of all three artists in the top 3. As much as I hated IGAB at first, it kinda grew on me (still don't love it though). And the flawlessness that was Jaejoong's album deserves to be there. And CN Blue's album was just so good. Usually I think their music is meh but that album was a goldmine.
kamoteatmani 7th-Feb-2013 01:00 pm (UTC)
Git dat first place soshi <3

Sadly with 265,000 copies in just a month, GG didn't managed to beat Super Junior with ten editions of the album. In comparison. Mr. Simple has eleven editions (including Version B which has only one cover) which sold 287,000 copies in just a month, and Sexy Free & Single sold 335,000 in just a month, with eleven editions (including Version B which also has only one cover). I thought SONEs were the biggest fandom in South Korea? What happened? I projected IGAB will sold over 400,000 in just a month.... just what the hell happened to Korean SONEs?


BTW I only bought the group version of the album though.... anyways congrats to GG! The title track is a real LSS.
feel_my_mind 7th-Feb-2013 03:11 pm (UTC)
They had much much stronger digital sales then Super Junior could ever hope for, that is what happened. The average Elf buy in bulk, (so do dedicated SONES; I'm not saying it doesn't happen), but their average fan buys digitally. Plus SNSD has more mainstream fans (who are not going to buy 10 covers), Super Junior has more hard core fans (who will buy all 11).

Plus, IGAB was a 'wtf' moment, before it started growing (they have amazing second, third and forth week sales, but crappy first.) There also something out there about SONEs spreading out the purchases.
mjspice 7th-Feb-2013 02:33 pm (UTC)
Still don't like it. Yay for Jaejoong!
craver199103 c7th-Feb-2013 05:27 pm (UTC)
As expected. Flawfree queens, flawfree music.

Also happy for Jaejoong. I really adore his song "Mine". That voice reaches such incredible heights.
ababobaby 7th-Feb-2013 09:46 pm (UTC)
i love the album :)
