Ranking of the most popular K-pop boy groups According To Their Album Sales And YouTube Views – In the music industry, singers and artists have historically competed for high rankings on various music charts, which can be viewed as a physical gauge of popularity.

YouTube view counts were added to the ratings as technology progressed. Recently, a member of an online community launched a discussion on the most successful K-pop boy groups based on album sales and YouTube views.

The netizen explained, “Shouldn’t this be the ranking of the idol groups?” and added, “Music streaming should take 60, album sales 30, and YouTube views 10 (Based on their recent album sales.
