According to Box Scores, TWICE has become the only K-Pop girl group and the 2nd girl group in history (along with Spice Girls) to have a performance tour with an average sales of 3 million USD and 40.000 tickets sold per night. BTS also got in the top 3 artist (along with Ed Sheeran and Elton John) with a 100 million USD in ticket sales in 2019.

Korean netizens are impressed by the “global star” BTS. Their ticket sales far surpasses the sum of all 5 other groups. Even more surprising is that the above numbers are only from the tickets and the goods are not even included yet, which mean the real number is even much larger.

Aside from BTS, the netizens also compliment TWICE’s accomplishment. With just 5 nights in Japan, the JYP girl group has made 26 billion won with an average of 43.000 audiences per night.

At the same time, BLACKPINK’s achievement is not as glamouring as what YG has mediaplayed on the media. This girl group attracted about 9.000 audiences each night. However, due to the high ticket price, BLACKPINK’s sales is still doing fine compared to the average number of other groups.

Some comments said: “BTS is definitely on another level that current K-Pop cannot reach”; “It’s obvious that the sales in Japan is much better than going on tour in other countries. Just look at TWICE, a few night with their dome tour and they have made that much money”; “That is just the ticket sales. I can’t imagine how huge will the number be when merch sales in included”; “That is still not the final number because BTS is not donw with their world tour”; “BLACKPINK still have a Japanese dome tour later this year so that number will rise even more”…
