They are doing 100k-150k in sales per album. Wich is good but not as good as it should be. I mean, Ateez sold 120k on their last album and they are rookies, and their company is not that big (is the company Block B set up for themselves)

I sometimes wonder how successful they’d be if they tried being more commercial. Sure, it’s nice that jype has given them free rein over their music, but I imagine the smart thing to do would have been making music that’s more accessible, at least for the first few years of their career.

Tbf that's what they did with GOT7, and their sales were similiar (even a bit worse) for their first 2 years. GOT7 ended up growing thanks to having international members (especially BamBam and Jackson who are stars in their countries). Idk if Stray Kids will be able to replicate their growth.

Ooh, good point. I guess I can sort of see Felix and Chan gaining a lot of popularity in Australia, but certainly not to the same extent as Jackson has in China or Bambam in Thailand. From the beginning, I feel like Got7 was primarily known for their foreign line tbh, and ia that skz doesn’t have that to fall back on.

:O Ateez sold 120k? holy crap, I knew they were doing well, but not that well. :o

That's what the gaon chart says 127k sales. Their two previous albums were like 50-60k, so I don't know what happened for that jump. They are doing 20k sales in first day for the current album, and that's almost double first day sales compared to EP.3. So they might even go higher this time around.
