Major music charts will be getting rid of late-night charts.

Naver Music, Bugs, Melon, Soribada, Mnet, and Genie, which make up the 'Gaon Policy Board', announced that because of recent sajaegi controversy, they will be reinforcing a new real-time chart starting on July 11th.

SEE ALSO: Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, and Simon Pegg team up against the cast of 'Running Man'!


Starting from July 11th, the charts will be frozen starting from 1AM KST to 7AM KST. This is to prevent sajaegi happening during the time when not many people are listening to songs. 

However, the move is going to be especially critical to idol fans, many who aim for late-night charts to get their much-needed #1. Many fanbases get their songs to chart high during the late-night charts so that the general public who listen to the top songs can listen and perhaps discover a new song when they wake up.

While the chart revamp won't affect bigger idol groups who chart #1 during the day, or even smaller idol groups who don't make it to charts yet, it will be critical for groups that depend on the late-night charts to get their groups into charts and have the public listen to it.

What do you think of the new change in charts?
