K-pop Groups That Dominated In USA Tours
A fan of BTS, BLACKPINK, and other Kpop groups have made a summary of how much their idols have profited during the recent USA tour.
AllKpop reported that a netizen compiled a list of how much BTS, BLACKPINK, and other Kpop stars made in international concerts. The top Kpop group was BTS, which is not surprising anymore. The boy group earned an average box office sales of $7,325,620.
It is possible to reach that feat because BTS had a vast album sales in both the USA and Korea. The all-male group’s album, “Map of Soul: 7”, BTS’ 4th full-length album, sold 552,000 copies in the United States alone and 4.27 million in Korea in the first half of this year.
The U.S. sales also consist of hardcopy CDs, which made 96 percent of the sales and digital albums and downloads. While in Korea, BTS’ “Map of Soul: 7” received its first Quadruple Million certification from Gaon Chart, Korea’s most significant music sales tracker.
On the other hand, BLACKPINK made second place in the list with $1,625,111 of their “In Your Area” U.S. Tour. It is not surprising that BLACKPINK would be prominent in the USA after their top charter hit “How You Like That” single was released and had a world record for most played Youtube video.
After BTS and BLACKPINK, TWICE came in third place with an average amount of $1,135,198. GOT7 got the fourth spot in the list with an average $728,613 in sales followed by NCT 127 with $679,139, while SEVENTEEN and STRAY KIDS follow behind. Super M and Red Velvet achieved a $400k average sales tying them in the last place.
One should always consider that the average number of sales depends on where the city the concerts are performed, and the ranking is based on the total amount of U.S. dollars averages from their sales in different U.S. states.
