      Comments here are all sick. This post is really old. Some people will be comparing companies such as other groups made it because they are sign to big company. Hello, those big companies were once a small company and cos of the artist they made it at large and dont forget those big companies have lots of artist to promote although i know SM entertainment hardly promote their artist which i have notice but recently with NCT . The above statistics on this post was base on their debut and sales and that's why most of you can find your favorite below and not on top. Other groups are working extremely hard. Learn to appreciate. Each Kpop group have their own time. There was a rime of Super junior, Bigbang, Exo, TVXQ, Miss A, girls feneration and the list goes on . Is time for Bts to enjoy the hardwork they put before you hear another group takes over. Like i said each Kpop group have their time. I was a fan of Miss A but they disband and m cheering for blackpink.

      Learn to appreciate other group as well because they work hard too irrespective of the company they are signed to.

      Peace.

      For sure 3.2 million album sales for MOTS Persona being the best selling album in Korea since 1995 and this being a digital streaming era is pretty impressive (14 million albums sold in total) gotta at least put them top 5 or 3 and being worth 3 billion to South Korea economy and at this rate, researchers estimate the septet will generate an economic value of $37 billion over the next decade. That’s huge for sure and yeah they’re 3x billboard 200 top charting albums in less then 11 months was only done in the past by the Beatles like the Beatles!!!! I’ll say top 3 at least but that’s just my opinion lol

      Lol doesnt mean that ur faves has more votes that theyre on top, this list is liget so dont cause fanwar. I think those in the list, got their account on how much they make from their debuts not how much they make, i think this lists was made in 2017. For example, the #2 EXO, could be #1 now, since, theyre still active and popular, their album still sells million to includes Asian htour concerts, not to mention their individually income as actors, models, advertisements and royalties!

      I detected many immature ARMYS here. Please stop compared BTS to other KPOP group. Other kpop group are doing so well also and not only BTS.I'm ARMY and i'm still think that other kpop group is the best also. Come on ARMY dont make a stupid fanwar. Dont compare BTS to other kpop group. BTS had their own achievement and other group had own achievement. If so ask why BTS in the last rank, you should ask yourself why you didnt buy their album. Besides, this article is a fact and its true that other kpop like H.O.T, EXO,g.o.d and others are leading. So please dont be sooooo stupid and be a smart ARMY. Dont shame our fandom please dont shame our fandom. And this is not be specific to ARMY only but to all the fandoms. I being annoyed to the toxic fans who being compared their fav kpop group to the others. So, good luck to all kpop group.

      BTS is the last in ranking because when they debuted in 2013 they are nobodies from unknown and small company. Unlike the the other groups that came from big 3 companies. See the difference? The stories of BTS is not secret to the world of kpop. How the group and their company struggled when they started. They work so hard and never gave up. That's why they're so loved by Armys.

      Bts fans are really so blind and delusional, even they read above that bts isnt in the #1 place in any of the title that it mention above, they still keep thinking bts is #1 lol. First of all bts dont have talents. Yes they can sing and dance and some of them are visuals. Right now, this year of 2018, they get populR, but doesnt mean they're successful. If EXO got come 2018 earlier this year, probably BTS dont got a chance to be known or be popular. But its ok, EXO isnt that greedy to share success to bts. When Hanteo apologize for manipulating EXO's account sales, i cant help to think that those account sales goes to bts. Why? When Hanteo mention that their ex worker does that, could it be possible that person is an army? When i read one of the article that says there's an army that work in American Billboard, then i cant help to think that "nonwondef why BTS won the award 2 times. Plus those billboard chart that makes him in #1. If these list above are true, then BTS isnt that big to be popular and bts actualy no match to EXO. Seeing or reading these list prove that bts didnt beat EXO. Only this year of 2018 that EXO didnt have record of sales since their come back just got in November, almost end of the year....but EXO still make concerts all over Asia....when they dont have come back, they focus on concerts, and other things. Remember, concerts makes more money than selling album, but when they come back boom, their album becomes selling oike hot cakes again. Let seenin 2019 if bts can make it again. But i doubt it, since EXO already come back with the repackage. And we know that when EXO come back, they can get back from bts the crown of being #1....good luck EXO!

      BTS is one of this generation's love, they have a huge fandom and all, they are also being recognized outside their country and that is great, awesome indeed! However, the fact that they debuted in the Era where K-POP is known everywhere differs from that of the once who debuted in the 90's where people are not so aware of K-POP yet and everyone is not into social media. Groups who became really popular and made K-pop known worldwide making them prominent images of Hallyu- Korean wave. Please have a little decency and not look down on the other groups just because your idols are not on top.

      Super Junior, BigBang, SNSD, 2NE1, Shinee, T-ara, Kara, etc.are awesome groups. Salute!

      BTS is NOT the only boy band on American TV! Got7 has appeared on Ellen and several other American platforms. Big bang has had their music featured in an episode of Glee. I bet if you looked it up, you could SHINee and EXO TV appearances easily. BTS is the one of the most currently famous because it won a Billboard. That's only thing they have achieved that no one other kpop has done yet.

      Seriously, SM and YG are still the best!

      Queens of Kpop will always be GIRLS GENERATION or 2NE1.

      Kings of Kpop will always be BIG BANG or SUPER JUNIOR even TVXQ.

      Just look on how they left behind a legacy. THEY ARE THE TRUE LEGENDS OF KPOP.

      Kpop nowadays wont happen without these groups! Oh well im a SNSD fan and a newly BIG BANG fan. ❤ Myyy these two are blessings from heaven! Sorry but I cant love any group other than them. I love SNSD since I was young so they will always be my Queens and now I see how worthy the Big Bang to be the King! Thank You. ^^
