As you know, ever since their debut, Mamamoo has always been one of the best-selling gen 3 girl groups in the Kpop world.
For example, WAW, their previous mini-album released just 4 months ago, has currently nearly reached 100,000 sales on the Hanteo chart after selling over 38,000 copies on the first day of release.
Thus, fans have been more expecting that “I Say Mamamoo: The Best”, the group’s first album since Wheein left RBW, will reach similarly impressive heights soon.
In fact, fans even aimed to h̾i̾t ̾ 50,000 sales on the first day of release.
Very disappointingly, the real first-day figure did end up being far from their expectations.
Guess what? Only 6,981 copies were recorded in the first-day sales. Yeah, not even reached 7,000.
So why sales dipped so low? Especially when Mamamoo’s performance on other platforms is much better than before?
While fans can only speculate at the moment, one huge clue from Kpop music stores was suddenly unveiled!
On many popular Kpop stores including Ktown4U, Yes24, Hottracks, Bizent, and Music кσяєα, this album has currently been sold out.
This seems to imply that RBW failed to print enough copies of the album to satisfy demand.
However, with tons of great achievements so far, how come the company can make a ma̾s̾sive miscalculation like that?
Moreover, fans even pointed out that the MV “mumumumuch” was uploaded without subtitles, which was seen as a great issue because, for a long time, Mamamoo has always put a lot of effort to make their music inclusive for impaired fans.
