Each year, K-Pop album sales seem to be getting increasingly higher, as the music genre becomes more popular and groups develop larger fanbases. This year, both newer and older boy groups had some of their biggest albums sales so far, including one that beat the previous record (which was previously passed by the same, likely predictable, group). These are the 15 best-selling boy group albums of the year so far.
