BTS, SuperM, MONSTA X, And More Receive Official Million And Platinum Certifications From Gaon
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.
Meanwhile, SuperM’s first full-length album “Super One” earned an official double platinum certification after selling over 500,000 copies.
In the download category, Ben’s “180 Degrees” received a platinum certification after surpassing 2.5 million downloads, while Gaho’s “Start” (from the OST of JTBC’s “Itaewon Class”) was certified platinum in the streaming category after reaching 100 million streams.
Congratulations to all of the artists on their impressive achievements!
