Korean Music
“Korean music sales in 2011 can be summarized with two
words: Girls’ Generation. The super girl group topped both YesAsia’s
K-pop album and DVD bestsellers in 2011, while male groups occupied the
rest of the charts. JYJ and Super Junior both rank in twice on album
bestsellers, and Big Bang members alone managed to take three of the top
ten spots on both the album and DVD charts.” – YesAsia
