BEST-SELLING K-POP ARTISTS OF 2011
No surprise, Girls’ Generation was the top-selling artist of 2011. Their new releases sold. Their old releases sold. Basically, everything the nine girls touched turned golden in 2011. 2NE1 was the only other female artist to crack the top ten in overall artist sales; they would be ranked #7 after SHINee (who didn’t release any new K-pop in 2011 but sold plenty of their older albums). Super Junior came out on top among the male artists, and Big Bang spread out their sales with group, unit, and solo releases (Seung Ri’s V.V.I.P. was actually the best-selling solo artist album of 2011).

S/N : YesAsia is one of the largest and leading online music store for Asian music and products.
S/N : This ranking is based on Korean Music. Judging from last year their sales are actually really good as SHINee did not release any Korean materials - yet they hold the #5 placing. So proud of them and fans!
