This year has also been a fantastic year for K-pop as various artists have landed on major music charts overseas. This is thanks to the increase in K-pop fans all across the world, increasing the number of albums sold.
In 2022, a handful of K-pop artists landed on Billboard's 'Year-end charts - Top Album Sales Artists.'
Without a surprise, BTS landed at rank 5, followed by TWICE at rank 9. BTS and TWICE were the only two K-pop artists landing in the TOP 10 of the chart.
Stray Kids missed the chance to be on the TOP 10 but came in at rank 11, followed by TXT at rank 16, NCT 127 at rank 17, and Seventeen at rank 18. With this, a total of six K-pop artists were able to make it to the TOP 20 of the billboard year-end Top Album Sales Artists charts, which is another impressive feat.
