BTS, SEVENTEEN, Kang Daniel, And More Receive Double Platinum And Platinum Certifications From Gaon
Gaon Chart has announced its latest batch of official platinum certifications!
In 2018, the Korea Music Content Industry Association implemented a new certification system for album sales, song downloads, and online streaming. Starting with music released on or after January 1, 2018, Gaon Chart now certifies albums platinum once they reach 250,000 sales, while songs receive a platinum certification at 100 million streams or 2.5 million downloads.
On October 8, Gaon Chart announced that SEVENTEEN’s 2019 mini album “You Made My Dawn” had received an official double platinum certification after selling over 500,000 copies since its release last year.
In the download category, both BTS’s “IDOL” and Vibe’s “Fall in Fall”—which were both released in 2018—received official platinum certifications after surpassing 2.5 million downloads each. Meanwhile, Paul Kim’s “Every Day, Every Moment” (from the OST of the SBS drama “Should We Kiss First“) was certified double platinum after racking up over 5 million downloads.
In the streaming category, BTS’s “Boy With Luv” (featuring Halsey) received a double platinum certification after surpassing 200 million streams.
Congratulations to all of the artists on their impressive achievements!
