The Gaon Digital Chart is the music industry standard record chart in South Korea for singles, provided by the Korea Music Content Industry Association and published weekly by the Gaon Music Chart.[1] The chart provides rankings on a weekly, monthly, and yearly basis, which are based on an aggregate of downloads, streaming and background music.[2] In addition to rank ranking all songs, it also supplies separate rankings for domestic and international releases. It started tracking sales in 2009, which were published the following February.[3][4] It is compiled from online data provided by web-based music providers Bugs, Genie, KakaoMusic, Melon, Mnet, Naver Music, Olleh Music, and Soribada.[5]

History

The Gaon Music Chart was launched on February 23, 2010, by the domestic Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Korea Music Content Industry Association. It was originally planned to be a bi-annual chart when the Gaon Charts launched in early 2010.[4] Eventually, the chart covered this and was released weekly and monthly like all the other charts.[]
