Big Bang had a total of 15,588,196, while TWICE and BTS followed at #2 and #3.

Meanwhile a controversy regarding Hanteo’s physical charts surrounded Big bang last week. In a Netizen Buzz article, Hanteo admitted that their counting was wrong. Instead of having only 20,000 album sales, Hanteo put 300,000 album sales. Fans and other people were greatly upset at Hanteo because of it. People were commenting on how pathetic Hanteo is. One commenter said, “Hanteo, can you please do your jobs right instead of causing fandom wars.” Another commented that many Big Bang fans or VIPs got hated because of it. Moreover, many people were reminded of sagaeji. A comment said, “This pretty much shows that if you pay Hanteo enough money, sajaegi is very much possible ㅋ how can you trust them? How did they not discover this error for half a day?” Big Bang will be performing today at SBS Gayo Daejun. Are you excited for their performance?
