I don’t really post things like this, but it’s quite sad how hundreds of teens around the age of us are missing or dying or even worse probably not even here on earth anymore and are resting in paradise. I’m very grateful that none of my relatives were on that ship, but it’s also possible that friends of my cousins could have been on that ship and I pray dearly for them. And to the class president who gave up his life jacket to his fellow classmate. God bless. Our world really needs people like you. I’m very sure your school and family would be proud of you. I love you all. Stay strong South Korea.
the vocaloid fandom is so nice though like they get this possible huge influx of new people and instead of going “ugh newbies they’re gonna ruin it for the rest of us” they’re like “HERE!! LET US TEACH YOU WHAT VOCALOID IS! THIS IS MIKU!! ISN’T SHE CUTE?? THIS IS WHAT VOCALOID IS FRIEND! COME JOIN US!!”
fun fact: i’m pretty sure each year for the last 2-3 years, you could combine all the money earned by ALL the acts for yg AND jyp, aka two of the “big three”, and still not earn as much as b1a4 as a single group from a company with no other artists. trying to find those links again…
I added up the sales from the last 2-3 years together and Big Bang, 2NE1, Epik High, Psy, miss A, and Wonder Girls all sold more than B1A4 individually. 2PM and 2AM most likely sold more than B1A4 individually. Keep in mind that only 2 YG artists released things this year and only 2 JYP artists released things this year.
YG: $38.3 million (Big Bang: $13.7 million ; 2NE1: $7.2 million; Psy: $13.8 million; Epik High: $3.6 million; Se7en: $29.7 thousand; Lee Hi: $18.9 thousand;)
All the numbers are rounded and were taken from wikipedia because i’m too lazy to look up the sales thoroughly (plus I don’t care that much, I just got a bit annoyed). There are things missing like singles and JYP’s own music. 2am, 2pm, Se7en, Lee Hi, and Sunmi most likely sold more than what’s there because of the missing singles sales.
