Hanteo Chart admits to manipulating EXO's chinese sales


Today, Hanteo released a Lengthy statement via their twitter account

"To start, we would like to apologize to our international customers for what happened on 17/8 (2017) today. Our official apology was delayed because we were troubled over how to express our apologies. (...)".

It addresses that a former employee manipulated EXO's chinese album sales to count less, this angered fan's who didn't think the apology was good enough. Fan's also pointed out that it shouldn't have taken Hanteo Chart 14 months to apologize.

the statement goes on to address that,Hanteo does not favor any shops/artists and treats them all equally. The incident occurred due to a mistake by an employee. All purchases made thru lawful platforms will be reflected on Hanteo. Hanteo will continue to work hard to be a fair and trustworthy platform. @qtpiebyunbaek

Wow these companies are scary. How can we trust music chart like Hanteo or Gaon if these kind of people exist in their workplace. Is it possible that they add/subtract numbers on other top groups like BTS, Twice, Wanna1, BP, RV etc.??

this is so not fair to EXO, golden disk awards and seoul music awards and other awards shows count/depend on hanteo charts to present their daesang winners. This means not only did they manipulate but interfered with exo winning some awards due to this reckless mistake. they keep saying don't worry when they keep making mistakes. Hanteo should shut down for a while. Because of this neglegence exo may have lost a chance at winning the daesang prizes in various awards shows :( especially when daesangs rely on irresponsible charts like these :(
