According to Mblaq there are saegigi companies that go around offering nugu groups their services. They said they would make their song top charts for a month for 380k u.s dollars, although thats a lot of money some groups like bap spend that much on a mv So if you had a nugu group or a fading group that wasn't doing well would you accept the offer? Personally i would because its not like you're forcing people to buy your album or song after it goes high on charts or you win awards because of it, they will see your song there and then they will check you out that's about it. To me it's just paying for some advertising. I wouldn't go for number 1 tho i would ask for stable position at 10-20 for a month to avoid suspicion, idc if its illegal or something, because some companies already have a huge advantage of being able to buy daesangs and stuff. Oh and i wouldn't tell the group either lol Wbu?
