i'm so glad they're doing well!

Oh damn, I’m not into it but this is impressive! Good job girls :)

Also it’s got me kinda concerned with that Weki Meki making 4th Place with that number, I know it’s harder for debuts but maybe more so for girl groups

gg album sales are truly abysmal unfortunately. I just found out today that MX slightly outsells RV and none of the former's songs chart on Gaon at all. No shade to MX but I'd be surprised if most of the gp have even heard of them.

No matter how much ppl try to deny it, male kpop fans just don't support their groups the way female fans do and they aren't nearly as loyal either. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

appealing to male fans just doesn’t seem worth it lmao. Just cater to the female fans with the money

I feel like even doing that is difficult tho bc young girls internalize so much sexism from society + the lure of cute boys. By the time female fans are old enough to see through the bullshit, they're out of the demographic where stanning idols is socially acceptable in Korea, and adult responsibilities means less time to devote to idols anyway. So even ggs with significant female fanbases like late-SNSD, Mamamoo, 2NE1, etc. still won't move units anything like boy groups do.

facts only. it's best for a group of either gender to have a lot of female fans.

yea less than 5k is not a good achievement tbh, but I kinda expected more considering girl groups have been quite prominent in recent years

debut sales are generally low, most non-big 3 boy groups start out with abysmal sales as well. girl groups actually keep surprising me with how well they're selling these days (and often without 10 thousand versions of the same album like their male counterparts lol).

i love weme and i'm glad they're at #4 but maybe they should have stopped at #3, lol, the difference is so stark...

That’s surprising, I thought Korea didn’t care about them that much! Or are these number including sales from other countries?

damn and here I counted them out of all the rookie gg awards.

Wasn't there a stupid ass petition to stop them from appearing on music shows or something?
queenhinata 1st-Nov-2018 12:25 am (UTC)
yes there was :/ knetz on naver are supportive of the group but there's anti-jpn knetz on nate/other sites that spew their hatred..

They deserve it tbh.
The debut song is a certified bop & the album is cute.

I officially no longer fear for them as a group, I think they can make it now.

wheres everyone who kept shitting on my icon kjnfkjfbn
i still hate the line up but im happy that sakura and nako and chaeyeon are doing well!

I was watching their little variety show IZ*ONE CHU and I couldn't help but find Sakura charming.
Such a lovable gamer, I've really endeared to her since Produce finished.
ramenhime 30th-Oct-2018 06:12 pm (UTC)
shes so misunderstood and hated just bc her management pushes for her to be center alot but shes so dorky and sweet!

Congrats! I’m probably not going to check up on them often but I was rooting for them to do well anyways, purely bc there were a lot of unnecessary hate from ioi and W1 stans on twitter.

YHS must be seething somewhere.
I like their debut, its not too cutesy. I like the red everywhere.
lil_poisonfrog 30th-Oct-2018 01:37 pm (UTC)
Damn I didn't expect it to be so much higher than BP. Judging by all the comments translated on various blogs you'd think this group wasn't gonna be as popular as IOI...just shows how these translations can skew your perception of things. 🙄

they deserve it w that debut title
