I can't translate it at all.
I can only identify some album titles such as Mariah Carey's Daydream and Kenny G's The Moment.
Would be great if you might help me.
Major thanks! IU is indeed a monster when it comes to single sales. That song with GD is a jam.jordi_89 wrote:Gaon published the Mid-Year charts last month, but I found a more updated list in OneHallyuabi wrote:^Do you have the list for the best selling singles on Gaon of 2017 so far?

Imagine if they had a full week. I know BigHit once said that their main focus is always the Korean market but on the other side, BTS' members have stated several times that they wanted to chart on Billboard so.... PLEASE RELEASE THEIR NEXT ALBUM ON FRIDAY!CHART STORY: GOING FOR THE GOLD
Foo Fighters have topped this week’s Sales Plus Streaming (SPS) Chart, as their ninth studio album, Concrete and Gold (Roswell/RCA), moves 130k units. This marks the fourth rock album to hit #1 this year, so throw some ****’ goat, dammit!
The second highest-charting new release belongs to South Korean boy band BTS, whose slickly produced fifth album, Love Yourself: Her (Bighit Entertainment via The Orchard), can be found at #7 with nearly 31k. The album, which features a song called “Best of Me” that was co-written and co-produced by The Chainsmokers’ Andrew Taggart, immediately soared to #1 at iTunes in 73 territories upon release (including the States).
CONGRATS BOYS!!!BTS continue to push where no K-pop act has gone before with a debut in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 album chart.
The seven-member group's new album, Love Yourself: Her, debuts at No. 7 with 31,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Sept. 21, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 18,000 were in traditional album sales. The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Oct. 7-dated chart (where Foo Fighters' Concrete and Gold debuts at No. 1) will be posted in full on Billboard's websites Tuesday (Sept. 26). The rest of Love Yourself: Her's starting unit sum was comprised of just less than 4,000 TEA units, and a little under 10,000 SEA units.
BTS earns both the highest-charting album ever on the Billboard 200 by a K-pop act, and the genre's biggest sales week. The group beats its own record, as the act's 2016 album, Wings, was previously both the highest-charting K-pop album (debut and peak at No. 26 on the Oct. 29, 2016-dated list) and owner of the biggest sales week for a K-pop title (11,000 copies sold in its debut frame -- all from digital albums). Notably, Wings and Love Yourself: Her are the only K-pop albums that have charted in the top 40.
