NCT Earns Official Million Certification From Gaon; SHINee’s Jonghyun, BTS, GOT7, EXO’s Kai, TWICE, 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 February 11, Gaon Chart announced that NCT’s latest album “RESONANCE Pt. 2” had received an official million certification after selling over a million copies. The achievement marks NCT’s second million certification from Gaon, following the million certification they received for “RESONANCE Pt. 1” in December.
Meanwhile, SHINee’s Jonghyun’s posthumous solo album “Poet | Artist,” GOT7’s “Breath of Love : Last Piece,” EXO’s Kai’s “KAI,” ENHYPEN’s “BORDER : DAY ONE,” and IZ*ONE’s “One-reeler / Act IV” were all officially certified platinum after selling over 250,000 copies each.
Kim Ho Joong also received two separate platinum certifications for his albums “The Classic Album I – My Favorite Arias” and “The Classic Album II – My Favorite Songs.”
Congratulations to all of the artists on their impressive achievements!
