SEVENTEEN, IVE, And BTS’ Suga Earn Circle Million Certifications; NCT DOJAEJUNG, NMIXX, BIGBANG, And More Go Platinum
Circle Chart (formerly known as 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, Circle 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.
SEVENTEEN also earned a separate double platinum certification for the Weverse version of “FML,” which sold over 500,000 copies.
Meanwhile, IVE’s first full-length album “I’ve IVE” became their second album to earn an official million certification after selling over a million copies, and BTS’ Suga received his first million certification as a solo artist for his recent album “D-DAY.”
Finally, in the streaming category, BIGBANG’s “Still Life,” BIG Naughty’s “Beyond Love” (featuring 10cm), Homies’ “Siren Remix” (featuring UNEDUCATED KID and Paul Blanco) were all certified platinum after surpassing 100 million streams each.
Congratulations to all of the artists!
