2NE1 outsells SNSD

July 12, 2009

Anti-fans are at work again and they’re hanging around at allkpop in a 2ne1 article. It’s really funny how they’ll just pop out when a threat to their idol is looming around. Anyway, I was reading the comments and I found a very interesting fact. I don’t know if people already know this but I’ll post it still.

Apparently, you can determine the ranking of the album sales in yesasia.com. There’s this part of the site that shows the bestseller albums for 7 days, 30 days, 60 days, and 90 days. It’s updated everyday so ranking does change on a daily basis. I went to the said site and as of today here is the ranking (July 12 2009):

01 SS501 – Collection
02 2NE1 1st Mini Album – 2NE1
03 alan Debut Mandarin Album (CD+DVD) (Limited Edition) (Hong Kong Version)
04 Girls’ Generation 2nd Mini Album – Genie
05 Super Junior Vol. 3 – Sorry, Sorry (Version C)
06 F4 Special Edition
07 Boys Over Flowers OST Part 2 (KBS TV Drama)
08 DIM (ALBUM+DVD)(First Press Limited Edition)(Japan Version)
09 Boys Over Flowers OST (KBS TV Drama)
10 Tegomass no Uta (ALBUM+DVD) (First Press Limited Edition)(Japan Version)

The ranking covers the entire collection that yesasia is selling. If you look more closely, you’ll see that 7 out of the ten are from Korean establishments. This only proves the popularity of Korean music all over asia.

This is also what fans and antifans are fighting over in allkpop. In the ranking, 2ne1 has passed SNSD in terms of album sales. Yesasia didn’t post any numbers so I don’t know how much of a victory it is. But the amazing part of the ranking is when you list the bestsellers in 90 days. 2ne1 is number 11 after just a few days of release. Imagine that, in 90 days, they were the 11th most bought album considering they only release their album last 8th of July. Amazing.

I don’t know if this is better than SNSD’s since the ranking has no number of sales and that I only knew about this now. I don’t know how SNSD performed in this when they released their ‘Genie’ album. In the 90 days ranking, SNSD is still 4th. That’s a lot of gap between 4 and 11. It could be that SNSD has 7 more sold albums, it could also be 7 million. Since yesasia doesn’t release number of sales, we’ll never really know. Anyhow, here’s the 90 days bestseller ranking.

01 Super Junior Vol. 3 – Sorry, Sorry (Version C)
02 F4 Special Edition
03 Boys Over Flowers OST Part 2 (KBS TV Drama)
04 Girls’ Generation 2nd Mini Album – Genie
05 Boys Over Flowers OST (KBS TV Drama)
06 SS501 – Collection
07 Everything (SINGLE+DVD)(First Press Limited Edition)(Japan Version)
08 SHINee 2nd Mini Album – Romeo
09 2PM 2nd Single Album
10 Girls’ Generation Mini Album – Gee
11 2NE1 1st Mini Album – 2NE1
12 Break the Records -by you & for you- (Normal Edition)(Japan Version)
13 Big Bang – 2009 Live Concert : Big Show
14 Wonder Girls : The Wonder Years – Trilogy: Nobody
15 Yiruma – First Love Repackage
16 Koi no ABO (SINGLE+DVD)(First Press Limited Edition)(Japan Version)
17 Let’s Get Wet (CD+DVD)
18 Tegomass no Uta (ALBUM+DVD) (First Press Limited Edition)(Japan Version)
19 DIM (ALBUM+DVD)(First Press Limited Edition)(Japan Version)
20 SS501 Vol. 1 – S.T 01 Now
