Three more artists have received Gaon certifications from the recently released Gaon Chart rankings for the month of May!
First, the Gaon certification has finally awarded its very first Platinum certification for song streams. Established this January 1, 2018, a song becomes certified Platinum if it is streamed over 100,000,000 times. The song which achieved the feat? iKON's "Love Scenario"!
Not only that, iKON's "Love Scenario" has now broken the recorded for the fastest time frame to reach 100 million streams, at just 19 weeks after release! Previously, the record was held by Ailee's 'Goblin' OST, "I Will Go To You Like The First Snow".
In addition, two more recently released albums have become certified Platinum for album sales, meaning the albums have surpassed 250,000 copies in sales. EXO-CBX's 2nd mini album 'Blooming Days' and TWICE's 5th mini album 'What is Love?' became certified as of June 8.
