Gaon Chart has just announced its latest certifications!
In 2018, the Korea Music Content Industry Association implemented a new system for album sales, song downloads, and online streaming. Gaon Chart now certifies albums as platinum once they reach 250,000 sales, while albums that have sold a million copies or more receive a “million” certification.
Today, Gaon announced that BTS’s album BE has received an official triple million certification after selling over 3 million copies. BTS has gained many achievements from this album and has released the “Essential Edition” back in February.
NCT’s 2018 album NCT 2018 Empathy earned an official double platinum certification after selling over 500,000 copies. NCT DREAM’s 2018 mini album We Go Up was certified platinum after selling over 250,000 copies.
TREASURE has received their first Gaon platinum certifications for their debut album THE FIRST STEP : CHAPTER ONE and their first full-length album, THE FIRST STEP : TREASURE EFFECT.
As for streaming, Oh My Girl’s “Nonstop” was certified platinum along with Kim Na Young‘s “To Be Honest.”
Congratulations to the artists!
