South Korean idol group Super Junior’s subgroup Super Junior-M made a “long stay” for two months in Taiwan this year to study Mandarin. They appeared frequently in Taiwan, stimulating sales of their Mandarin album “Perfection”. Adding on the fact that the pronunciation of “too perfect” is similar to that of “Taiwan is beautiful” and “Taiwanese girl”, they sold 60000 copies, becoming the bestselling South Korean artist in Taiwan.

Most popular Korean group SJ, concert tickets on sale today

SJ’s new Korean album “Mr. Simple” was not far behind, selling 45000 copies, taking second place behind the first-placed SJ-M. On February 3, 4, and 5 next year SJ will be holding their concert at Taipei Dome, and the tickets will be going on sale at 1PM today through the 7-11 i-bon system.

Korean stars’ albums dominate, top 10 all sold over 10000 copies

Jang Geun Suk released an album after experiencing success in acting. He came to Taiwan in June to hold a fan meeting and sold out both meetings, raking in NTD 26,720,000 (about $883000). With his explosive popularity, his album “The Lounge H Vol. 1” defeated Girls’ Generation, selling 40000 copies, and is the only artist in the top 5 that is not a part of a group. 4th placed Girls’ Generation’s “The Boys” sold 26000 copies.

South Korean boy band CNBlue had a busy schedule this year, and even though they have not been to Taiwan to meet the fans, they still took 5th place with 20000 copies. In addition, Kim Hyunjoong (15000 copies), F.T Island (15000 copies), Big Bang (12000 copies), TVXQ (11000 copies), and f(x) (10000 copies) round up the top ten of the sales chart, selling more than 10000 copies each, proving the Hallyu wave’s popularity.

  1. i hate the fact that they did comparison between SJ and SJM while they’re just one team named under Super Junior.

    • True, true. But I guess they had to differentiate the album but if that’s the title of article, then I really wish they changed it.

    • Agree ^_*

  2. That is how my boys seize it :))

  3. don’t sound it they are competing to each other.. they are the same member who is in SJ-M

  4. SJ-M’s album is in Mandarin & SJ’s album is in Korean – so there is no comparison !! Different language & it is also for different market !! Just like comparing an American with an Asian ( they both start with an ” A ” & also they can speak English ~ ha ha ha ) not the same !

    Anyway, gong xi SJ-M for the record selling fete !! chukkha hamnida Super Junior for being 02nd place !

  5. =.= this is kinda ridiculous for both SJM and SJ to compete with each other…but still…SJ AND SJM daebak! 🙂

  6. this isn’t a competition.. but for me it’s kind obvious that Taiwan loves SJM a little more!!!XD
