Top selling k-pop albums – January to June 2006

SG Wannabe is the top seller as expected. They edged out Lee Soo Young as the top selling album in the first half of 2006. But the sales are lower and lower each year. sad.gif Again, I am sure this list is not complete. Shinhwa and Kim Jong Kook’s album is definitely in the top 10 and both should be selling over 100,000 copies. This is just for reference only. If MIAK updates this list, I’ll change it.
