damn ailee did really well. surprised that shinee ranked that high for physical album sales when they're not on any other charts.
uledy 18th-Jul-2012 12:50 am (UTC)
omg @ how much BB obliterated everyone on the physical album chart...also, good job Busker Busker!
hisjulliet 18th-Jul-2012 12:55 am (UTC)
Lovey Dovey is a good song but come on now..

Proud of Shinee for selling that many albums, even though it's a little weird that they're not on the other charts
unofficialdear 18th-Jul-2012 02:56 am (UTC)
Same here, but I guess it was really popular over there.
telepathic 18th-Jul-2012 12:55 am (UTC)
damn t-ara, get it.
lysblack 18th-Jul-2012 12:59 am (UTC)
miss a being so low makes me so pressed with aqe it's so fucking frustrating.
k3vk3vk3v 18th-Jul-2012 01:01 am (UTC)
how the heck is top 10 low...
mangomuffins 18th-Jul-2012 12:59 am (UTC)
t-ara on top just like last year ^_____^
k3vk3vk3v 18th-Jul-2012 01:06 am (UTC)
lol sistar's about to overtake big bang...
montauks 18th-Jul-2012 05:00 am (UTC)
big bang doesn't even try tho
sashapoly1911 18th-Jul-2012 01:06 am (UTC)
Wow,I'm proud of Ailee for doing so well!
akaich0u 18th-Jul-2012 01:07 am (UTC)
Busker Busker is doing so well. They better not be shut out of end-of-year awards or I'll be kinda pressed, ngl.
siha 18th-Jul-2012 01:16 am (UTC)
proud of t-ara rn c':
jaerotic 18th-Jul-2012 01:22 am (UTC)
wow if busker busker does not win those rookie awards i'll be pressed for them and i'm not even a fan.
tsuyoi_hikari 18th-Jul-2012 02:41 am (UTC)
I got the feeling that they wont. Big companies will do everything that they can for their rookie idols to win that awards since its only once in a lifetime chance for any group's career.
cattleyae 18th-Jul-2012 01:25 am (UTC)
Yaaay the physical albums chart makes me happy. My favs are all there ^^
ghost_whisper 18th-Jul-2012 01:32 am (UTC)
I'm probably one of the only people who didn't like Lovey Dovey. :|

Awesome that Ailee did so well. She deserved it.
tsuyoi_hikari 18th-Jul-2012 02:43 am (UTC)
Me either. It's too generic and repetitive for my taste. I like their new song more.
amandaplan 18th-Jul-2012 01:35 am (UTC)
Yay @ Ailee! I'm glad her song and flawless voice got some much success.

Also yay @ SHINee and BB <3
I bought SHINee's album but haven't listened to the physical copy yet.
aleexnews 18th-Jul-2012 01:38 am (UTC)
jfc BB always has 2 or more songs ranking in the top 10, and for a repackaged album with technically only 2 new songs they sold a lot. more than i even expected, proud of u bbs<3 alive sold more than tonight did last year too, as expected since alive was so much better and they actually tried on stage.

congrats to T-ara! though i honestly didn't like lovey dovey that much. i'll always prefer Roly Poly more. Busker Busker<333 so glad korea recognizes their talents.

zui_circus 18th-Jul-2012 01:38 am (UTC)
yeaihh!!! for EXO
aleexnews 18th-Jul-2012 01:45 am (UTC)
8. INFINITE – ’3rd Mini Album Infinitize’ – 108,639 albums

fuck yes.
2ne3rd 18th-Jul-2012 02:17 am (UTC)
Big Bang in the top three in every category, showing how it's done ;D
Also nice seeing Infinitize and It's sold well!!! keep it up bbs
jonghyunf 18th-Jul-2012 02:20 am (UTC)
seems like t-ara's always at the top.
anconeous 18th-Jul-2012 02:29 am (UTC)
Go Big Bang! :) And damn! SHINee's mini-album is the second bast-selling of the year so far. GET IT, BBS.

Happy birthday, Taemin!

lightframes 18th-Jul-2012 03:21 am (UTC)
That hat is so cute!
hipployta 18th-Jul-2012 02:42 am (UTC)
Big Bang cleaning house digitally and physically as expected.

T-ara did well digitally last year with Roly Poly and Lovey Dovey this year. Their other singles did okay but Day by Day seems...not

Okay Ailee, Junsu, and Jay holding it down for the solo artists. Ailee should manage a best female rookie award.

Busker Busker is going to win SOMETHING at the end of the year

MBLAQ and Infinite doing okay

Look at my EXO babies on the chart at 10 and 15. M has been in the top 10 the last few weeks too.
devilsatin 18th-Jul-2012 02:55 am (UTC)
Cry Cry actually sold more than Lovey Dovey but since it was released so late in the year the sales got split between 2011 and 2012. Day By Day is doing well too
hpn88 18th-Jul-2012 02:45 am (UTC)
if busker busket and aliee don't win at least 1 rookie award...
anyone know how day by day is doing digitally. is t-ara living up to their digitial queens title
twinkystar16 18th-Jul-2012 09:23 am (UTC)
they're doing well with Day by Day..right behind 2NE1's song
unofficialdear 18th-Jul-2012 02:54 am (UTC)
So proud of Junsu <3. With little to no promotion and a banned mv, this is big!
soft_daisy 18th-Jul-2012 06:39 am (UTC)
I didn't even realize his mv was banned in Korea until you mentioned. ugh, I'm such a bad fan idek ;___;

(but yes, so proud of him for ranking ^^)
kamakazza 18th-Jul-2012 03:07 am (UTC)
Yay for Junsu!!!! I am so proud of our little duck-butt!!!
unofficialdear 18th-Jul-2012 12:30 pm (UTC)
lol "our little duck-butt" oxymoron :D
joy_twinz 18th-Jul-2012 03:25 am (UTC)
Junsu did really well. I'm so happy his album ranked high. :D
