While K-pop achievements like all-kills are often marked by streaming or download numbers, physical sales still make up a large part of an agency's revenue.
Pann Nate looked at physical sales from 2017 to gauge which agency leads when it comes to actual albums being sold in shops and online. It turns out SM Entertainment is at the top with a 26.01% share of sales being from their artists, but following closely behind is Big Hit Entertainment on 18.58%, who only have two active groups - BTS and Homme - to their name.
Check out the numbers with cd sales figures below.
