How many albums have Korean singers sold so far this year?

How many albums have Korean singers sold so far this year up to November?

According to ‘Gaon Chart’, which runs the nation’s representative album charts, Super Junior has come out on top in album sales of all the Korean singers who have released albums from the 1st of January till the 6th of November. Super Junior have sold 322,000 copies so far and as their rank hasn’t changed so far, they’ve been deemed ‘the album kings of 2011′.

Big Bang came in second place with 217,000 copies sold while TVXQ came in third with album sales of 201,000 copies. JYJ are currently in fifth place with 158,000 copies sold.

Kim Hyun Joong was the only solo singer to be in the ‘top 5′ with over 200,000 copies sold of his first and second mini albums ‘Breakdown’ and ‘Lucky’.

With less than two months left of 2011, the battle to secure second to fifth place is expected to be fiercer than ever as album sales continue to change. Though male singers have currently dominated the top five spots, female singers are also kicking up a storm. Girls’ Generation and Wondergirls have recently released albums and are expecting to sell over 100,000 copies.
