Physical Sales

There are two major charts that monitor physical album sales in Korea: Hanteo and Gaon.

Hanteo chart counts daily, weekly, and monthly sales. Hanteo chart is used to count towards music show charts. A lot of stores send their sale counts to Hanteo to record, but not all do.

Gaon chart counts weekly, monthly and yearly physical and digital sales. Along with Hanteo, the Gaon chart is crucial for end-year award shows.

Sales from the following online stores count towards Hanteo and Gaon:

 

Leesmusic | Applemusic | Synnara | Dvdheaven | YesAsia Kpoptown | Kpopmart

 

 

Digital Sales/Downloads + Streaming

Downloads/streams from the following sites contribute toward digital sales:

MelOn | Bugs | Mnet | Soribada | Olleh | Monkey3 | Cyworld | Genie

Downloading is when you buy a song and save it to your personal device (ex. iPod). It is similar to purchasing a song on iTunes.

Streaming is when you play a song through a respective site’s player or mobile application. This is similar to Spotify. Downloading the song and playing it through iTunes/Winamp/etc is not streaming.

MelOn is Korea’s largest digital music store. It dominates over 50% of the digital market. MelOn’s chart is heavily dependent on streaming. Unless you pay, you will only be able to stream 1 minute previews. We are unsure whether or not looping these 1 minute previews count towards streaming but it’s worth a try, right?

A guide on how to stream songs from MelOn can be found here.

 

Online Voting

Click here to vote on M! Countdown. Use your Mnet, Twitter, and Facebook account for 3 votes. Making an Mnet account is easy as the site is available in English. You can also vote on Mnet’s Korean website. One vote per account. This counts for 5% of M! Countdown’s criteria.

Music Bank requires KSSN. Foreigners cannot vote.

Voting on Show! Music Core is done by registering an MBC ID and applying to become a part of a special 2000 viewer committee. This counts for 10% of Show! Music Core’s criteria. Click here for a guide on how to apply to the committee.

Voting on Inkigayo is done by using the ‘엠앤TV톡’ mobile application. For Apple users, click here to download. Android users, click here. This counts for 5% of Inkigayo’s criteria.  A guide on how to vote using the ’엠앤TV톡’ app can be found here.

 

Live SMS Voting

Real-time voting is done when the music show is live. An MC will signal when fans can start voting. One vote per mobile number. Charges may apply. It is best to text from a phone but you may also try smsrr or e-freesms (however, your vote may not be accepted). Your message must contain the group’s name in Korean: 엠블랙

M! Countdown 

  • Vote for MBLAQ if they are in the top 3.
  • Text 엠블랙 to +822566 or 00822566 (2566 if you are residing in Korea)
  • This is worth 10% of M! Countdown’s criteria..

Show! Music Core

  • Vote for MBLAQ if they are in the top 3.
  • Text 엠블랙 to +820505 or 00820505 (0505 if you are residing in Korea)
  • Music Core REQUIRES you to vote for two nominees. For example, if TVXQ! and 2NE1 are nominated along with MBLAQ, you must vote for one of them along with MBLAQ. I would send “엠블랙,동방신기”, which means I’d be voting for MBLAQ and TVXQ.
  • This is worth 10% of Show! Music Core’s criteria.

Inkigayo

  • Vote for MBLAQ if they are in the top 3.
  • Text 엠블랙 to +821245 or 00821245 (1245 if you are residing in Korea)
