BTS selling power is insane. 300k in the US, 300k in Japan alone for Persona. And they haven't even put out any Japanese content this year.

also Twice as expected! Also I always forget how well Seventeen does in Japan.

I like IZ*ONE's Korean stuff wayyyy more than their Japanese stuff so far. But good to see them doing well!
