    EXO never fail in delivering great numbers. Truly the physical kings in this generation. Group, solo or sub units, the fact that 250K units sold are guaranteed is an incredible feat. Legends, kings, record breaker.

    [​IMG]

    I just wonder what is the significance of difference in Hanteo and Gaon numbers. EXO never surpass 100K but there are group that hit 200K difference.

    okay so gaon numbers come from the shipments of albums that companies send to music stores, and hanteo numbers come from actual sales from stores that report to hanteo (and iirc not all stores do report to them. i think it's around 85% that do).

    so the column that shows the difference is the number of albums that companies have shipped out but haven't sold. and again it's not 100% accurate bc not all stores report actual sales to hanteo, but it does give you a pretty good estimate.

    so the reason why some groups have a bigger difference between the two numbers is because the company over-ships copies of the album, and there's not enough demand to go with what they supplied.

    i hope this makes sense and helps you guys understand a bit better c: edit: dsdssff forgot to say congratulations to lay!!! i'm glad his album was so successful and that he finds even more success in the future!!!

    Our talented Yixing I am so so proud of him. I hope he and also Chanyeol will have a chance to contribute more in the writing and compositions of EXO future songs..

    I mean.. Promise is a gem okay.

    and as for the difference in numbers between Gaon and Hanteo...

    correct me if I'm wrong.. but Gaon numbers counts the overall albums shipment right?? the total album produced while Hanteo numbers reflects the total amount of albums that had been sold.. am I right??

    So EXO not having a big difference in numbers between Gaon and Hanteo is kinda a good thing right? That means they are selling quite close to the total number of albums that had been produced and distributed to stores.

    A big difference in numbers may indicate that they had over shipped the albums..

    Best selling group: EXO.
    Best selling Subunit: CBX
    Best Selling Solo: CEO Zhang Yixing. And they say we are declining. If that's what you call declining then we will make sure EXO declines in 2017 as well.

    And the difference between Gaon and Hanteo for that another group. Ouch that gotta hurt.

    I'm mainly surprised cos I thought G-Dragon sold the most albums as a solo artist. I was once a VIP and I think his first album sold more than 300K units? But I'm not an expert in music industries in general so I don't really know lol

    And just to be clear, I'm not dismissing Lay's success. Lay is already doing remarkably well for his first solo venture.

    Yes, it is correct. Not having a big difference between Hanteo and Gaon is a good thing. That means SM predicted pretty close to their selling amount meaning they spent the right amount of money to produce these albums.

    Having a big difference in Hanteo and Gaon essentially means they overproduced and over shipped albums. If they don't the sell the difference, that means a lot of albums are going to be returned. Gaon subtracts the amount returned from their accumulated total. Plus the company loses a lot of money if alot of albums are returned.

    GD did indeed sell over 300k but that was only after adding on Oricon (jpn) sales as well. Oricon sales aren't counted on Gaon/Hanteo so he only "officially" sold around 213k units. (idk if this is 100% fact tho so don't take my word for it haha)
