Gaon Chart has recently made new changes in their website and announced that the number of streams as well as downloads will no longer be displayed.
On January 10th, Gaon Chart stated through an official announcement that, “The Gaon index of the digital chart will be displayed on the website, but the numbers on the download chart and streaming chart will not be shown.”
According to the notice, however, this change was made due to the “misuse of displayed counts on the website other than its original purpose.” Up until 2017, the number of downloads and streams for the songs on the Gaon Digital Chart were visible to the public.
This new change will take effect starting with the weekly chart for the first week of January 2018. The rankings, produced as the result of calculations by Gaon, will now be available through the Gaon index.
