Digital charts discuss changes to chart schedules to prevent fandom domination

Article: [Exclusive] Digital charts to revamp starting the 27th on midnight releases

Source: Sports Chosun via Naver

Digital charts will be changing to decrease the amount of 'midnight releases' and promote more noon releases. Previously, in order for songs to make it on the real time charts, they had to be released between midnight and 6 am, which was the prime time for fandoms to stay up and stream songs without competition from public/daytime listeners, thus making it easier to dominate charts. Singers who wanted to make it into the top 100 would usually release songs at midnight. Changes will likely be made to change the chart schedule to 6 pm to accommodate both students getting out of school and workers getting out of work.


1. [+1,908, -40] Just get rid of the real time charts;

2. [+1,443, -13] It'd be better to just go with daily charts instead of real time charts

3. [+1,413, -25] Getting rid of the real time charts would be better

4. [+1,077, -10] I think getting rid of the real time charts would be a better solution to the problem

5. [+1,215, -146] I don't get why this change is necessary. Just because they change the times around, do they think groups like BTS and EXO won't be lined up on the charts the next day just because they released their album at noon? BTS and EXO always dominate the charts for two weeks in the early morning, they need to think of a solution to that instead ㅋㅋㅋ don't hinder other artists from midnight releases with unnecessary changes

6. [+194, -5] Streaming sites in general seem like such a waste of time... It's basically labor work for the kids who have to stream for their favorite singers. I sit by watching and it's just a sad sight.

7. [+183, -2] Get rid of the real time charts...

8. [+166, -3] Fans are also frustrated with the 5 minute, real time charts. Enough with these time changes, just go with the daily chart as the base.

1. [+3,448, -330] I bet the next article will be media play like "Fighting bone tumor... but even that can't hold back his passion for acting"

2. [+3,662, -579] So he can do dramas but can't serve in the army... He really should consider taking a break for now...

3. [+3,120, -455] Aren't you sick though

4. [+2,660, -407] You should be getting treatments, what're you doing?

5. [+2,434, -434] Yoo Ah In-ssi, what about your service...?

6. [+1,379, -161] Ah, so that's why he caused all that fuss over being sick ㅋㅋ so obvious ㅋㅋ

7. [+1,149, -96] Isn't filming a drama extremely exhausting work?? Can't get sleep either... shouldn't he be taking a break?

8. [+1,123, -96] So he can do dramas but not serve in the army ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I knew this would happen

9. [+1,182, -118] This kid is hilarious ㅋㅋㅋ he whines about being sick from a bone tumor but then goes into a drama ㅋㅋㅋ you think you can take the public for fools? Now that you're done testing the waters, you're just jumping into a drama?

10. [+1,239, -142] Exactly as I expected ㅎㅎ so what's going on with your service..?


Source: Nate

1. [=321, -65] You're sick, just take a break, not like you're poor where you'll have nothing to eat if you don't work

2. [+296, -96] If he goes into a drama, he won't be able to sleep or eat properly, it'll be exhausting, but I guess him being sick has nothing to do with that??? Honestly saying he's 'fighting' is laughable. At least serve public service already. Jung Il Woo did, why not you? And Jung Il Woo has a disease that's actually dangerous... It's so obvious that he media played all this time about 'fighting' his bone tumor just so he can get out of the army and shoot a drama.

3. [+281, -77] You fools got played by his media play. If he was sick enough where he couldn't serve, he should be in the hospital right now. Instead he's going to shoot dramas and all the CFs and make all the money he wants while saying he's too sick to serve ㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+50, -21] If he's sick, shouldn't he be on rest? His previous articles said he had a lot of fractures and stuff. Doesn't he know that people will suspect weird things if he promotes like nothing's wrong now?

5. [+50, -21] Please don't say you're sick ever again

6. [+48, -23] So he's fighting cancer but can do dramas and can't serve in the army ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ puhaha ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+36, -7] I don't think he's going to serve at this rate

8. [+31, -14] Aren't you sick? You should be focusing on your treatments right now but you're doing a drama that's practically being shot live?? ㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜ

9. [+27, -8] He's an opportunist full of nothing but fancy sounding words, much like a politician

10. [+26, -5] Shooting a drama is tough work... shouldn't he be taking a break? ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

1. [+587, -32] Losing weight's another issue... but she looks way too masculine now

2. [+335, -97] She looks like Machoke... please go back in my pokeball

3. [+24, -6] Dieting is 90% what you eat and 10% exercise. A lot of foreign studies have shown that exercise doesn't necessarily correlate to weight loss. Fortunately, at least she's putting in effort unlike some people. Fighting to Lee Michelle, you're a good singer and rapper.

4. [+13, -7] If you want to lose weight, you need to do cardio, not muscle ㅡㅡ she looks like Tyson's son

5. [+11, -0] Who did this to this nuna's hair?

6. [+10, -1] I recommend getting a personal trainer... you drop a ton of weight

7. [+9, -0] I can only do one pull-up, I'm jealous ㅋ

8. [+9, -0] If she can do 200 pull-ups, she should be more built than Bruce Lee, what kind of pull-ups are she even doing?

9. [+8, -0] Pull-ups aren't for dieting, it's for building muscle

10. [+8, -1] I like that she's promoting more now  ㅎㅎ I've been a fan since 'K-Pop Star'

1. [+1,112, -13] There way too many illogical people. I hope they realize that their own mouth is dirty for saying such dirty things.. tsk tsk

2. [+916, -18] Too many crazy people

3. [+740, -21] You should never hurt someone like that...

4. [+21, -2] Just consider your friend's parents as a dirty piece of rag

5. [+14, -2] I remember when I was younger, my friend's grandma told me to leave because I smelled...  ㅠㅠ when really it was because my own grandma was sick at home and the smell of her medicine was on my clothes.. but wounds like that stick with you for life ㅠㅠㅠ

6. [+13, -1] I don't know how adults think they can talk to children like this... shows that age is but a number when your mentality is so immature

7. [+10, -1] What a dumb mom

8. [+10, -2] Her dumb brain is dirtier... such crazy parents

9. [+7, -0] Stuff like this can get out of hand. I have a darker skin tone than most.. ㅋㅋ and I was bullied in elementary school for it ㅋㅋㅋ the skin color discrimination is real ㅠ and it still hurts me to this day and I feel sensitive when someone tells me my skin is dark. People need to watch what they say...

10. [+6, -0] When people say stuff like this, I just look at them all sad like "you dumb fool"...

4. [+44, -3] He really doesn't have a face for a celebrity

5. [+41, -5] He looks weird

6. [+31, -7] Do you like bathrooms too?

7. [+29, -6] We have the Ryu Hwayoung sisters as the disliked sisters, and the Yoochun Yoohwan brothers as the disliked brothers ㅋㅋ

8. [+25, -6] Make sure you clean the bathroom up for your brother...

9. [+18, -3] He's definitely way more uglier than his brother, he'd be just another guy on the streets if not for his brother

10. [+17, -3] His face is weird

11. [+15, -3] Thought he was holding up a toilet seat cover

1. [+1,003, -41] DSP can't do their jobs though... They're pretty much on their own, and if they're not careful, they'll end up like that group Co-Ed

2. [+860, -27] I wonder how good their actual debut song will be because their pre-debut project is already so good... I'm really looking forward to it, please don't disappoint us, DSP!

3. [+610, -25] I love the song!!!! Oh Nana and Don't Recall are both my tastes

4. [+502, -23] Co-ed groups are definitely different and fresh... but I still find it hard to get used to...

5. [+408, -17] Their new song is better than Oh Nana ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+111, -6] Oh Nana and Don't Recall are both so good, even the choreography, why won't they promote it ㅠㅠ If they promote it on music shows, they'll be so popular. International reactions have been great, their MV views are going up... I'm going to be so mad if they release all these good songs for the pre-debut and then come out with some TroubleMaker concept for their actual debut

7. [+94, -3] They have some great songs. I think the public will warm up to them if they put out consistent albums and get the right support.

8. [+87, -2] I'll be mad if they put out a bad song for their debut when they've had all these great songs for their pre-debut -.-;;;;

9. [+73, -4] They need more support... they have good songs

10. [+72, -5] I love their songs... DSP finally did something right. Co-ed groups are still fresh in concept and they have both the good songs and the talent to back it up
