Super Junior Becomes Korea's Best Selling Artist Of 2012
According to Hanteo, Super Junior has sold the most physical CDs in 2012, selling 177,718 copies of their album "Sexy, Free & Single".

This is the 3rd year in a row that Super Junior has had the best selling album in terms of physical sales. In 2010, the group sold 130,000 physical copies of Version A of "Bonamana", while in 2011 they sold 200,000 physical copies of Version A of "Mr. Simple".

Physical album sales seemed to be up this year compared to last year. 8 groups sold over 100,000 physical copies this year compare to only 5 groups last year.

It should be noted that Hanteo only accounted for physical sales of individual versions of releases. Multiple editions and repackaged versions were counted separately.

Because digital sales data was not collect, much of an album's sales was not accounted for; however, it is interesting to note that physical sales for male artists is much stronger than females, indicating that the packaging, photo books, and other items are important factors in the sale of male music.
