U-KISS (유키스) SUPPORT COMEBACK

KissMe,

WHAT WE MUST DO:

1) Buy their music both physically and digitally (60%)
2) Get SNS points via Youtube and other networks (20%)
3) Vote for them on music shows (20%)

First of all here there is a great page where you can find detailed information to support U-KISS on korean comebacks, MAKE SURE TO READ IT CAREFULLY :) Keep this in mind~ 

PHYSICAL SALES FROM:

MORE IMPORTANTLY: DIGITAL SALES

What is digital sales? Digital sales refers to digital songs being downloaded (BOUGHT) or streamed (PLAYED) on Korean music sites.

Digital sales is vital for winning, as it accounts for 50% to 60% of the points UKISS gets in Show Champion, 45% in Mnet MCountdown and 65% in Music Bank.

There are 5 major sites where digital music is available for purchase, which is MelOn, Bugs!, Olleh, Naver and Soribada.

***The first 4 doesn’t accept international purchases, so we can’t help. Soribada is like iTunes and we can purchase title track for about 1,65 USD.

SORIBADA [WHAT YOU MUST KNOW]

Soribada chart is based on count of download and listening (streaming).

  • Download will be counted when downloading some song. It’s easy to understand. Right?
  • Listening will be counted when listen to the entire length of the song.

That’s it. it’s simple :)

This rule is applied on both site. (site for korean, site for foreigner)
can you listen to the entire length of the song?
if not, it won’t be counted.

Each song is only counted ONCE onto Soribada’s music charts PER ACCOUNT no matter how many times you download it!

  • Please remember to logout before 23:00 KST if not your streaming for the day will not count!!!

ONLY downloading at Soribada’s ENGLISH SITE counts for music show charts. Trial listening at Soribada’s ENGLISH SITE (http://kpop.soribada.com) does NOT count…

KEY:
-Downloading means purchasing songs with a credit card…
-Trial listening means listening to those 1 minute previews of songs WHICH DOESN’T COUNT..

Streaming means listening to the full song.

This rule is applied on both site. (site for korean, site for foreigner)
Listen to the entire length of the song
if not, it won’t be counted!!!!

[IMPORTANT: PLEASE MAKE SURE TO PURCHASE THE DIGITAL SONGS ON SORIBADA DURING THE FIRST TWO WEEKS OF PROMOTION, THOSE ARE VITAL!!!!]

Q. If I purchase and download music at Kpop Soribada, will it be reflected in various music charts in Korea?

A. Yes. Your downloads will be converted to certain scores by the Soribada system and added up to Soribada chart of Korea. Soribada provides its official chart to several other music charts in Korea.

It is the easiest thing because it has english language option!

Voting there is really easy, here you can go vote!

If you had exceed your limits to vote, you can change your IP[Internet adress] here It is really safe :)!

As you can see, if we want UKISS to win, we need to increase DIGITAL SALES as much as possible!

Voting on Mnet, while you may see many people emphasizing it, actually is NOT AS IMPORTANT as digital sales. [IMPORTANT: PLEASE MAKE SURE TO PURCHASE THE DIGITAL SONGS ON SORIBADA DURING THE FIRST WEEKS OF PROMOTION, THOSE ARE VITAL!!!!]

Physical sales (CDs, albums), sadly, do not contribute much in music shows (Only 10% in Mcountdown and 5% in Music Bank)

So, our PRIORITY SHOULD BE DIGITAL SALES (buying + streaming songs on Korean music sites: SORIBADA, BUGS, MELON, OLLEH, MNET KOREA, ETC)

*Remember that buying UKISS songs on iTunes DOES NOT COUNT toward music shows.
