    They’re said to be among the 5 agencies alongside JYP doing so

    It’s getting even more serious now

    Good its time for the agencies to step up and put a stop to any chart manipulation from any dishonest actor.

    As they should. I didn't really believe it with this Shaun dude since his music is right up SK's alley. But some things are sus with Melon e.g. Mamamoo's Melon search stats keep disappearing for some reason:

    And I'm still a little baffled how their title track is floundering on that platform the way it is but this could be a promo issue, and we'll see what happens once they start doing so from tomorrow. Add to that, Melon inexplicably uploaded two versions of their song, so it split their ULs on the first day, no idea if that's been fixed. I do know SK probably ain't here for the sound change so maybe that's it, lol.

    Yeah well sans BigHit, they all requested for the same thing in 2013. Let's see if there's any follow up this time round.

    But Shaun's song is pretty good!
    Its sad its embroiled in a chart manipulation controversy.

    You know there can be times when people actually listen to it. See, Shaun and Nilo may not necesarily be behind this manipulation. It could be due to other factors too, like think, everyone has a brain, use it.

    About this happening whenever TWICE comebacks, there's a possibility that someones sabotaging them from performing extremely well on the charts but you know, there's a possibility it could be done by someone who probably doesn't want twice to do well, like anybody could do it
    That's it for today's edition of wild theories.

    while they're at it, do away with streaming too, it's a headache having to know a particular group has more views/listens cause the fans had a die-hard streaming session

    I dont know what this chart manipulating is all about, I dont pay attention to such scandals, but I saw BP was accused of it and that really hurt me. I liked BP a lot and I stream their music a lot, in melon, but that is because I always love hearing it always and i keep replaying it, so I just dont know why they are accused of such when I do think they are rightfully topping because many people are listening it. Is this onces vs blinks kind of thing? I do hope this will not damage gg's image. Both Twice and Black Pink. i'm really concerned.
