Anonymous asked: hello can you please explain why tvxq fans have been mad to ot5 for bulk buying Hug album?
Because buying album beside Tense will decrease the chance of TVXQ win Music bank for Jan 24th.
Like I’ve explained before, Music bank 5% physical criteria is 5% from the total of 200.000 kpoints =10000 kpoints. Mubank makes 10000 kpoints as analogy of the total albums sold that week.
Music bank looks for weekly chart, means album sales from Jan 13th-19th. Let’s say that total albums sold for Jan 13th-18th (6 days) are 145.000 albums (100%)
TVXQ Tense sales : 120.000 albums (82.75%)
B1A4 sales : 19.000 albums (13.10%)
Rain sales : 5.000 albums (3.44%)
EXO sales : 1.000 albums (0.68%)
From points above, TVXQ Tense sould get 82.75% x 10.000 kpoints = 8275 kpoints for Mubank.
But suddenly some fans were doing bulk buy on January 18th, the 7th day, and the weekly chart changes like this:
Total album sales 190.000 (100%)
TVXQ Tense : 120.000 (63.15%)
TVXQ Triangle/Hug : 25.000 (13.15%)
TVXQ Catch Me : 20.000 (10.52%)
B1A4 : 19.000 (10%)
Rain : 5.000 (2.63%)
Exo : 1000 (0.52%)
TVXQ kpoints would change to 63.15% x 10.000 kpoints = 6315 kpoints. Decreasing from 8275 to 6315. Mubank will only count Tense sales, not including Catch Me and Triangle/Hug albums sales.
Every point in physical sales criteria is really important for TVXQ to win Mubank, that’s why some k-cassies have been mad why other fans don’t cooperate with their plan.
This is a case of misunderstanding between two camps of fans. That’s why communication is really important for maximizing all efforts of fans for this comeback.
