MUSIC CHART NOTES:
An Excerpt from our Music Chart Guide: “Korea has multiple digital streaming & purchasing services and each have a realtime chart of their own! Here is a list of the current Digital Services (each have their own chart): Bugs, Genie, Soribada, Olleh Music, Melon, Naver Music, Mnet music, & Monkey3. A great site that compiles all of these in realtime is Instiz iChart (updates every hour on Twitter). But the digital chart that gets recognized for year end awards is Gaon’s Digital Chart (Weekly, Monthly, & Yearly Charts). Gaon also breaks down their combined Digital Chart into Streaming & Download Charts. A prestigious thing for an artist is for a new album/ new song to debut with an “All Kill” – when an artist’s new song/album reaches #1 on ALL Korean digital charts during the first hour/day of release. The best ways for US fans to participate in these charts are: buying a pass on Melon (iPhone required to purchase), using free Genie passes (100 free stream passes are in physical albums), & buying the album on Soribada. Purchasing and streaming through these services WILL contribute to SHINee’s wins on music shows!”

Awards & Nominations
2018 Korea Music Awards (industry jury) – Nominated Best Pop Album – “As a line in Move suggests, is a work carried through with ‘dazzling attraction and strange feeling.’ An album that builds up a consistent mood of refined sensuality with as distinguished from the common eroticism from its concept through lyrics and music to performance, doesn’t come to mind easily at least in the k-pop idol scene. With messages of temptation, passion, rise, and thirst in exquisite accordance with Taemin’s full-blown voice, it presents an experience as alluring as to take away your bias against an idol.
