BLACKPINK, NCT, And SEVENTEEN Earn Official Million Certifications From Gaon; TWICE, TXT, And More Go Platinum
Gaon Chart has announced its latest batch of official 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 albums that have sold a million copies or more receive a “million” certification.
On December 10, Gaon Chart announced that BLACKPINK’s first full-length album “THE ALBUM,” NCT’s second studio album “RESONANCE Pt. 1,” and SEVENTEEN’s special album “; [Semicolon]” had all received official million certifications after selling over a million copies each.
In the download category, Yang Da Il’s “Sorry” and Jannabi’s “For Lovers Who Hesitate” both received platinum certifications after reaching 2.5 million downloads each, while Jang Beom June’s “Your Shampoo Scent in the Flowers” (from the OST of JTBC’s “Melo Is My Nature“) was certified double platinum after surpassing 200 million streams.
Congratulations to all of the artists on their impressive achievements!
