Instiz's iChart, which everyone uses to determine a certified all-kill and perfect all-kill, will be undergoing some changes.


Starting on May 15, Instiz will be removing music sites Soribada, Olleh Music, and Monkey3 due to the reduction of users on those sites with a lower market share. Along with that, the Naver score will have more weight as it will be calculated twice.


The remaining music sites will be Melon, Mnet, Bugs, Genie, and Naver.


What are your thoughts on the changes?

    I still remember the old days where there were 10 charts to rank, excluding Instiz chart. RIP Cyworld, Daum, Soribada, Olleh and Monkey3... (But Cyworld really had to go tbh)

    I think there are too many music sites currently and its natural the smaller players will be ignored or left out, and maybe even bought over or "disappear" over time. if the market share of the remaining big players is like 80% or more of the music market, i think its logical for them to stop tracking those site's data.

    I like the changes. I think it more accurately reflects what's actually going on with that market.

    GOOD. Monkey3 was one of the most stupid music sites ever. Certain artists could never get PAK because while they were number 1 on all other sites, they would be rank 10 or something ridiculous on M3.

    Not at all. Being #1 on these three charts is literally the easiest thing. Especially Monkey3. PAKs and CAKs won't be any easier or harder to get, removing these three charts won't make any difference.

    I think some people misinformed here, it's more like this BeforeMelon(x6) Genie(x3) Mnet,Bugs(x2) Naver, Soribada , M3, Olleh(x1)After this reorganization, Soribada, M3, Olleh removed, and Naver from (x1) become (x2)So it become like thisMelon(x6) Genie(x3) Mnet,Bugs,Naver(x2) This 5 Music chart the only one left and their poin multiplier.

    How they decide the multiplier ? based on market share/customer they have Melon(4.8m) Genie(1.46m) Naver(1.08) Mnet(0.83m) Bugs(0.65m)
