Gaon Chart just revealed that iKON is the first group to receive a Platinum Certification for a song!
The Korea Music Content Industry Association (KMCA) announced recently that they would be introducing a new certification system for songs and albums released after January 1, 2018.
Their latest hit “LOVE SCENARIO” was listed as the first and only song to go platinum on Gaon’s new certification charts!
This was Gaon’s second certification update since their first on May 2018.
Achieving Certified Platinum means that “LOVE SCENARIO” has been streamed over 100 million times.
This is another huge achievement for iKON’s latest hit, as streaming is a good indicator of popularity amongst the regular public.
TWICE and EXO-CBX also reached Certified Platinum for albums — meaning they sold over 250,000 copies of their latest releases.
Meanwhile, Bolbbalgan4 earned number 1 on Gaon’s Digital, Download, and Streaming Chart with “Vacation”, SHINee earned #1 on the Album Chart, and BTS held onto their #1 spot on the Social Chart.
A huge congratulations to iKON on their success!
