[Pann] What's more important, physical or digital sales?

Pann: Physival vs Digital

"I just saw a thread about Taemin's digital chart rank and Winner fans and Taemin fans were arguing with Winner fans saying digital score is important and Taemin fans saying physical is important, so which is more important? I personally think digital."

1. [+175, -7] Both are important but as they say, being strong physically means your fandom is big while doing better digitally means the public recognizes you more

2. [+163, -55] It's physical ㅋㅋㅋ idols are completely reliant on their fandoms

3. [+131, -29] I don't think physical sales are something to ignore though

4. [+60, -2] As an idol, having more physical sales is a basis for success but as a singer, having more digital sales is a basis for success

5. [+48, -29] It's digital ㅋㅋㅋ fandoms come and go and your career doesn't amount to much if the public doesn't recognize you ㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+41, -8] If you want a long running career, you need to do better digitally ㅋㅋ

7. [+36, -5] Idol fans probably think physical is more important but digital is more important to the general public

8. [+32, -14] The downside of being strong digitally is that people tend to only remember your song and not the singer who sang it. For the group's income, physical is better and idols are reliant on having more fans so that's probably more important to them.

9. [+24, -12] The big money makers for idols are physical sales and concerts.

10. [+23, -7] Idols are reliant on big fandom size so I vote physical sales


Pann: Taemin's current digital rank

"57th.. so how is he nominated to win music shows;;;"

1. [+133, -155] Wow, seriously, what is he nominated for?

2. [+116, -178] Winner should win #1, no? They're way higher digitally

3. [+150, -96] Why is Winner even being mentioned here? ㅋㅋㅋ Their physical sales are way lower than Taemin's ㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+55, -6] Sorry but Taemin sold 72,000 in first week sales. What do you have to say to that? Nothing, right? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+47, -3] Stop fighting. Taemin got #1 as a solo singer and has a good song and dance whereas Winner is doing fine for an album they composed themselves and have great songs and dances too;;

6. [+41, -68] His song's so bad though..

7. [+34, -54] It would've made no sense if Taemin won 'Inkigayo', I'm glad Mamamoo won it

8. [+33, -60] His new song is so bad, I wouldn't even care if his song was at least good



  1. Better yet get good digital and physical and you'll be a real wall~
