SM artists dominate music sales in Taiwan

2 Jan

SM Entertainment is dominating Taiwan’s music industry.

According to a Taiwanese music site’s album sales ranking revealed through its Week 29′s ‘Korean-Japanese Music Chart’, Super Junior’s ‘Bonamana’ took the no.1 spot with 57,000 copies. Wonder Girls’ ‘Taiwan Special Edition’ came in 2nd with sales of 50,000 copies, SBS drama ‘You’re Beautiful’ OST secured the 3rd spot with 40,000 copies, while SNSD’s ‘Oh!’ which recorded sales of 37,000 copies grabbed the no.4 spot, followed by SHINee’s ‘Lucifer’ with 30,000 copies.
The fact that SNSD, Super Junior, SHINee and TVXQ, who are artistes under SM Entertainment, managed to conquer the top 5 spots in terms of album sales in Taiwan has proven that SM artists are enjoying massive popularity in the island republic.

SJ Consecutively Reigns as Bestselling J/K-Pop Singer in Taiwan

18 Dec


[Ying Chen, Wei-quan Su/Taipei]

Korean idol group Super Junior (abbreviated SJ) became the best-selling J-Pop/K-Pop* artiste in Taiwan with their album “Bonamana”, selling 57,000 copies, making the girls of Wonder Girls and Girls’ Generation bow out.** Among Japanese singers, Hamasaki Ayumi beat out Amuro Namie to take the crown, but neither sold over 10,000 copies in Taiwan. SJ’s “Bonamana” sold 7000 more copies than Wonder Girls, and third place among Korean album sales was the Korean drama OST for “You’re Beautiful”, arguably a black horse.

2010 Korean Album Sales in Taiwan***

1. Super Junior “Bonamana”, 57,000 copies sold
2. Wonder Girls “Wonder Girls Super Hits CD+DVD” 50,000 copies sold
3. Korean Drama OST “You’re Beautiful” 40,000 copies sold
4. Girls’ Generation “Oh!” 37,000 copies sold
5. SHINee “Lucifer” 30,000 copies sold

*Taiwan’s charts group J-pop and K-pop together into what they call the dong yang (literally, “East ocean”) charts, so there’s no real direct translation.
**It’s an idiom that basically means to bow and admit defeat, in this case it’s not literal of course, but pointing to the fact that WG and SNSD’s sales were lower than SJ’s.
*** I believe that this is combined sales of all versions, including B and repackages.
