Girls Generation's Official Sales Thread

The criteria for song recorded on this thread:

 

  • A SNSD release is any song released by Girls Generation.
     
  • A SNSD related release is any song released by a subunit or member of Girls Generation, or a collaboration prominently featuring a member(s) of Girls Generation. 
    • For example, Don't Forget by Crush ft Taeyeon will not be counted, due to the fact that Taeyeon only sings a small part at the end of the song. But "Like a Star" by The One ft Taeyeon will be counted as she had a prominent roll as the main singer in the collaboration.

--------

Each song's recorded sales will be counted to the year with which it was released, and continued sales into the following years will be added to the prior year until the song has finished its chart run. Taeyeon's singles and Girls' Generation's 2015 singles are examples of this.

BoA and TVXQ are ahead of them, though I don't consider TVXQ active as they're currently serving I think? Though I'm sure they'll have a comeback after they finish. SNSD are ahead of both of them in digital sales about 3 times over though.

i'm talking groups overall. no solos or anything. so they're definitely second. no 1st gen idols included cause they're sales are sooo deflated.(like, super high)

I see, that would make sense. In that case SNSD would definitely be second.

SNSD = The Real Queen of Physical Albums sales among Girl Groups :happy:  :happy:  

 

Yes truly remarkable tho I was kinda jaded that the number wasn't as high as wikipedia says, I'm sure they'll reach an exceed it in the next 2 years or so c:

 

66 MILLIONS?!

 

That's their DL number, to put it into perspective, IU and Big Bang are ahead of them in that regard though in YG's groups case that's mostly bc their DL numbers were mediaplayed before the gaon charts existed. Technically SNSD could easily have sold as much as them (or at least close to it) but unfortunately we'll never know how much the majority of the b-sides before 2011 would end up selling despite those tracks charting very well. 

 

IU = over 100,000,000 it's useless trying to add it all up now lmao

Big Bang = I believe they float around 91,000,000 rn

 

2NE1 is also very close behind SNSD at around 65,000,000 DLs, they're almost exactly 1,000,000 behind SNSD rn so it'll just take 1 more comeback to be ahead of them again. 

 

SNSD have the physical edge though having a significant amount of album sales more than the acts just mentioned, so we'll see how that evolves in the future.

if you take Gaon, should you take Oricon numbers too for Korean releases? and if you take RIAJ for some Japanese release, then why you take Oricon for other Japanese release?

One big phat receipt

 

Girl’s Generation official physical sales (All these numbers are from Gaon, Oricon, RIAJ, Billboard, and otherwise archived sources like MIAK and Hanteo)

 

I am making this thread bc the other SNSD sales thread has been inactive by the OP for some time.

 

I have to give a lot of credit to http://onehallyu.com...t-sales-are-in/(User: Sooyoung) for compiling a huge list of numbers for this. I updated them and removed the ones I could not find receipts for. Some of these numbers are rounded down, so give this an error margin of a few thousand units but nothing substantial.

 

And of course thanks to Anonsone, fantomas and SNSDChris1439 for all the receipt posting this year. Also used figured from the official Gaon and Hanteo sales threads when necessary.

 

Girls Generation Korean physical sales until 22/12/2015:

 

Spoiler

 

Girls Generation Japanese physical sales:

 

Spoiler

 

Will update figures again when the year end charts come out.

 

Total sales: 6,402,801

 

Wikipedia says SNSD has sold 7,800,000 units but I don't think the calculations were correct unless I'm missing some releases which I don't believe I am.

 

I'm starting to doubt Wikipedia numbers more an more, and will try my best to keep this thread as close to the real numbers as possible.

 

This list includes solos and subunits. Will clean this up to make it easily readable when I have to opportunity to.

 

SNSD's oficial digital sales are currently floating around 66,000,000 but I'll need to dig up an older post I did about that to confirm.

I can help you out if you need any more help

It'd just be nice to know if I'm missing any substantial numbers, whether the wikipedia estimate of 7,800,000 is close to the reality.

SNSD record saled is around 6.5 to 7 Millions i guess.. I think some one made a small misscalcution about SNSD sales in S.Korea is 4 Million and Japanese Sales is 3.4 Million, so thats how it got to 7.8 Million Records Sales.


Well, it might be true that SNSD's Record Sales is 7.8 Million though.... But just to be save, its better to say SNSD is about 7 Million ^^^



But it doesnt change a fact anyway, won't it? SNSD is only ONE of TWO 2nd Gen Idol to be include in Top 10 best-selling Korean Acts.


If memory serves me right... It goes like this :

#1. TVXQ!

#2. BoA

#3. Shin Seunghun

#4. Kim Gunmo

#5. Seo Taiji

#6. Jo Sungmo

#7. H.O.T.

#8. SNSD

#9. COOL

#10. S.E.S.


Its crazy impressive imo....





Up, Up and Away!
