YesAsia 2020 Bestsellers - Korean Music

Written by YumCha! Editorial Team Tell a Friend

BTS continues to dominate the #1 spots of our K-pop bestseller charts for the fifth consecutive year! From album Map of the Soul:7 to video releases like 5th Muster Magic Shop and Memories of 2019, the world sensation topped both of our K-pop charts and reigned as the best-selling artist.

Stray Kids secured their position as our second highest-selling group with their first full-length album GO LIVE, which came right after BTS's. Baek Hyun, the only solo male artist in the top ten, rose to #3 in the album chart with Delight, and EXO's latest concert video ranked third as well. Fast-rising group NCT and subgroup NCT 127 claimed spots in both the album and artist charts, while GOT7 and IZ*ONE appear in all categories.

Guarding their title of the best-selling female K-pop act for the fifth year in a row, Twice was the only group with two albums in the top ten (More and More at #5 and Eyes wide open at #8), in addition to Twicelights at #2 in the video category. Dreamcatcher and Loona kept up with strong album releases in the top ten.

Tae Yeon and ATEEZ both rank among the top artists and have entries in the best-selling video releases. IU's and Tae Min's concerts also charted high. Seventeen, DAY6, Monsta X, Red Velvet, GFriend and BLACKPINK all secured spots in our best-selling artist list, while ITZY and (G)I-DLE broke into the chart for the first time.

The below rankings are based on Korean music sales on YesAsia.com from January 1 to December 31, 2020.
