MelOn deletes Realtime Chart and Rising Chart

USER CONTENT

MelOn deleted Realtime Chart and Rising Chart. After months of preparations, the most popular App/Chart in South Korea finally decided to make a move into a more stable 24 hours ranking. It means that MelOn main chart will now work very similarly to the one that we know from FLOwhich most of the fans describe as a "slow chart".

Netizens already noticed that ranking numbers also disappeared which means they will be listed only for previous day.


The breakdown of the 24Hits chart (new realtime) is that it factors in both streaming and downloads from the last 24 hours: 40% streaming + 60% downloads.

Because the chart graph and the 5-minute chart were removed it will be very hard to check song growth on charts and predict which song will rank 1st. How do you like MelOn chart/app after the upgrade? Do you think the switch was necessary?

    Groups that are more popular internationally than locally and underrated groups are kinda screwed. This will definitely be harder for their fandoms. The only ones that don't have to work as much are the popular groups in Korea like BTS, Seventeen, Twice, Red Velvet, Gfriend, and Mamamoo. (Not to sure about Blackpink, I think they are considered top in Korea..but I'm not sure)
