EXO’s Baekhyun And SEVENTEEN Receive Million Certifications From Gaon; ASTRO, Kang Daniel, 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 June 10, it was announced that EXO’s Baekhyun’s album “Bambi” and SEVENTEEN’s album “An Ode” have received million certifications for exceeding 1,000,000 sales. ENHYPEN’s “BORDER: CARNIVAL” earned an official double platinum certification after selling over 500,000 copies, while ASTRO’s “All Yours,” Kang Daniel’s “YELLOW,” ITZY’s “Guess Who,” and NCT’s “RESONANCE Pt. 2” have been certified platinum for surpassing 250,000 copies.
Songs receive platinum certification for downloads when they reach 2.5 million downloads. Kassy’s “The day was beautiful” and Lauv’s “Paris In The Rain” have now been certified platinum.
In the streaming category, IU received a double platinum certification after her song “Love Poem” surpassed 200 million streams.
Congratulations to all of the artists!
