Wow, it's nice to know.
And yes I second heraldc's wish... if only those 3.6mil translated into revenues
What does it mean? Indonesian fans bought their stuff on iTunes?
Even if, let's say, the majority of those 3.6mil voters didn't buy T-ara's albums or digital songs, I bet big chunk of them could be very good audience for a solo concert. I heard SM artists love having shows there, too.
I could be wrong but I think most Int'l Queen's who don't know hangul get their legal digital downloads from iTunes, especially since its only about $3-5 per album. That's how many thousand to be counted on Gaon? Yes other groups have int'l fans also, but just check the view counts for live perfs in youtube. T-ara int'l fans are at least in the top 5.
Yes those who buy Kpop usually get it from iTunes for digital downloads & yesasia for physical albums, we also have local franchise of melon & langitmusik and other sites but those aren't really not up to date on Kpop. Which is why I'm really miffed that T-ara songs in iTunes Japan can't be bought from here.
Would've love if T-ara visited here.. SNSD, Superjunior and the whole SM Town, 2PM, Wonder Girls, Lee Seunggi, Rain, Music Bank, etc.. even Girl's Day been to Indonesia. And almost all kpop concerts here gets sold out in just a short time.
And don't forget that Eunjeung got married here once (btw that was Lombok Island, our capital in Jakarta looks totally different)
