[IMPORTANT] HELP BRING SUPER JUNIOR TO CANADA. SIGN THIS
Super Junior have been the kings of physical album sales since 2010, but it’s hard to visualize thatwith just the numbers.
To help visualize the breakdown, a Korean netizen put together pie charts to see how each group did in sales. The pie charts were released in five categories with the first three charts breaking down the sales within the Big 3 companies: SM Entertainment, YG Entertainment, and JYP Entertainment. The last two charts broke down the overall percentage based on companies and individual artists.
The SM Entertainment chart showed that Super Junior had accounted for 34% of the entire company’s sales, which isn’t surprising since they had ranked at #1 for the entire year for the industry. TVXQ,SHINee, EXO-K, and Taetiseo followed. The most surprising was Girls’ Generation, who hadn’t released an album in 2012 but managed to sell 6% of the label’s sales anyway.
Percentage of total album sales in 2012 by company
Since Super Junior and TVXQ took up the #1 and #3 spots overall for album sales in 2012, it’s not surprising that SM Entertainment artists accounted for 28% of the total album sales for 2012. They were followed by YG Entertainment, who had 15% of the sales.
Surprisingly, #3 was INFINITE‘s Woollim Entertainment with 6%, followed by B2ST, 4minute, andG.NA‘s Cube Entertainment with 5%. FNC Entertainment, with CNBLUE, F.T. Island, AOA, andJuniel followed. Another surprising number came up next with B1A4‘s WM Entertainment with 3%.JYJ‘s C-JeS Entertainment came up next, and then JYP Entertainment and Core Contents Mediawrapped up the rest of the companies at 3%.
