NCTizens were ecstatic to see the group getting the Million seller certification for their album ‘RESONANCE Pt. 2’
Gaon Chart has released its latest list of million sellers artistes along with K-pop global phenomena who will be getting the latest Platinum certification from the South Korean Music Chart. NCT officially is a member of Gaon Million Seller Charts while EXO’s Kai, BTS are among the few who will be receiving their latest Platinum badge.
For the unversed, the Korean Music Content Industry Association initiated a new certification system from 2018 which recognizes the biggest stars of the Korean Music Industry through their sales, downloads, streaming numbers on Gaon music chart. If an album is sold more than 250,000 copies physically, it receives ‘Platinum’ certification for the album, and crossing 1 million album sales gives an album a “Million” certification. For downloads, 2.5 million downloads will lead to a song getting certified as “Platinum” and 10 million downloads will give the track a “Diamond” certification, Soompi reported.
