Gaon Chart has shared 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.
On July 8, it was announced that NCT DREAM’s “Hot Sauce” has been certified double million for exceeding 2 million album sales. ATEEZ’s “ZERO : FEVER Part.2” and Stray Kids’ “IN生” (“IN LIFE”) have been certified double platinum for surpassing 500,000 sales.
Platinum certification for streaming is achieved when a song surpasses 100 million streams. This month, Australian singer Tones and I received platinum certification for achieving this feat with “Dance Monkey.”
Congratulations to the artists!
