Initial Album Sales
In a recent article on STARNEWS, the media outlet talks about a new standard for evaluating how a comeback is performed. The new standard they suggest out is the initial album sales figure (IAS).
Initial Album Sales is the sales figures of albums during the first week of their releases. It is a reasonable indicator to see how fans are interested in particular comebacks and to evaluate how big particular fandoms are.
This first album to record 100 thousand IAS is TVXQ in 2008, clocking 110 thousand sales. We might think it is a record that could be easily broken, as K-Pop has gone global, and fandoms are bigger. However, it took 5 years to have another album reaching that, and it is EXO’ s ‘XOXO'(Kiss&Hug) in 2013.
Until 2016, there were only 10 albums to have reached 100 thousand IAS. And it is worth point out that every EXO album has achieved 100 thousand IAS. This has proved the way EXO and SM Entertainment building the fandom is highly effective. Afterward, more and more albums have achieved that record.
Not only K-Pop groups, but solo artists are also slowly achieving 100 thousand ISA. That includes Baekhyun and CHEN from EXO.
In 2020, EXO members Kai and Suho have recorded 250 and 210 thousand IAS respectively. In 2021, D.O.’s solo album has 310 thousand copies sold during the first week of its release.
