NCT DREAM And Stray Kids Receive Million Certification From Gaon + TXT And THE BOYZ Certified Double Platinum, And More
Gaon Chart has announced its latest batch of official certifications!
In 2018, the Korea Music Content Industry Association implemented a certification system for album sales, song downloads, and online streaming.
Starting with music released on or after January 1, 2018, Gaon Chart certifies albums platinum once they reach 250,000 sales, while albums that have sold a million copies or more receive a “million” certification. Certifications are given when at least six weeks have passed since the album’s release.
On October 7, it was announced that NCT DREAM’s “Hello Future” and Stray Kids’ “NOEASY” have received million certification for exceeding 1 million album sales each. THE BOYZ’s “THRILL-ING” and TXT’s “The Chaos Chapter: FIGHT OR ESCAPE” have been certified double platinum for surpassing 500,000 sales, while ASTRO’s “SWITCH ON” and Red Velvet’s “Queendom” were certified platinum for 250,000 sales each.
Platinum certification for streaming is achieved when a song surpasses 100 million streams. Noel’s “Late Night” received double platinum certification for 200 million streams, while Jang Beom June’s “can’t sleep” received platinum certification for 100 million streams.
Congratulations to all the artists!
