Well, another article about our girls. I think the comment about album sales really means alot, I mean how many other girl groups have sold 100,000+? Even Korea’s little sisters, Wonder Girls, have never ever achieved it.
In Korean standard, 100,000+ albums sale is huge, but in America, its basically nothing, This definitely shows how albums are made. In Korea, you have to keep making albums and “comebacks” constantly. On the other hand, here in America, you basically need only one album for a very long time as long as you have lots of awesome hit singles… kind of like SNSD’s first real album, where they promoted GG, Kissing You, and Baby Baby.. though I wouldn’t count baby baby since they repackaged it.
wow. good luck to the girls. im not sure if they can break their own records but if they do, that would be awesome. i think expecting them to break those records would be putting too much pressure on them. i just hope they’re successful. ^_^
i wonder if snsd can beat their 9 consecutive win record x]
