This is the best run down I’ve seen of the event yet. I couldn’t understand why on earth other fandoms with Chinese fans would gloat about Chinese fans being excluded from Hanteo charting. 🙄 That one person gave millions of fans undue stress and tried to be manipulative … and for what?

anonymous asked:

what happened? what did chinese exo-ls do?

Basically a Hanteo employee said that they wouldn’t count chinese sales anymore, and only after c-exols went off on their asses did they back track and say “it was the employee’s mistake” lmao as if

Syannara WENT OFF at Hanteo like bitch Who the fuck are YOU to decide that and basically confirmed Hanteo was full of bullshit .

Everyone read EXO Baidu Bar’s response….they did THAT:

Know that not only Chinese EXO-Ls are furious about your actions but other fandoms as well. 

1. The C-EXOLs did not use an illegal route. We purchased directly from Synnara which reports to Hanteo Chart. If there is something wrong with the C-EXOL group orders, please tell us which part is the problem. This way, we can present to you evidence that our transactions are legitimate. 

2. With regard to the issue of double counting, once the albums are bought in Korea, barcode counting should have been completed. The albums were not smuggled, and since the codes have been recorded while still in Korea, even if they were resold in China, they cannot be Counted again. Are your technologies not advanced enough to avoid this? 

3. We play by the rules of Korea even after it has been changed many times. This album has also been sold in America, Europe, and Asia. This means that countries other than China can have group orders and the same would not be considered illegal.If Hanteo truly wishes the Korean Music Industry to prosper, wouldn’t it be better to promote this kind of purchases rather than considering the same as illegal? Keep the standards you yourself has set. 

4. Why is the ban specifically targeted on China? Is it aimed at a specific fandom or is it racial discrimination?. Group orders are done by all fandoms for their favorite idols. This includes the fandom which your staff belongs to. (Ooh shade ). Do you stand for racism and white supremacy, which are one of the biggest issues of today’s society?. “I hate China but Europe is good.” That kind of thinking. Do not excuse yourself saying it was only 1 employee. If there were 6 employees, isn’t the voice of 1 big enough?. Apologize in Chinese for targeting the Chinese fandom. Apologizing in another language is the least you could do when you have wronged us. If you do not know Chinese then hire a translator. I also spoke in Korean just to show you our position on your actions. (x)

Hi. What can we do to make sj #1 on music charts and music shows? Like can you enlighten us about what we can do? :)

Hello! The majority of music show wins depend on digital and physical album sales since they make up a large percentage of the show’s ranking system that guarantees a win. As I-ELF, the most important things to do to help them win Music Charts and Music Shows is to buy the physical album, download and stream songs digitally, vote online, and increase MV views. One of the main goals for ELF is to promote SJ’s album/songs on Korean sites so it’s important to digitally stream their songs on k-sites like MelOn, Bugs, Soribada, etc. 

‼️ Digital Sales and Album Sales 

  • Buy and stream songs from only legal music websites 
    • Melon, Genie, Mnet, Soribada, Bugs, Naver Music, Olleh, etc
  • Buy albums from shops counting sales towards Hanteo and Gaon
    • YesAsia, Leesmusic, Synnara!! (KpopTown, KTown4U, Catchopcd)
      • you can also order from SJ-World.net
      • SYNNARA (Korean site) is the best place to buy since it counts on HANTEO, GAON, M!countdown, Inkigayo, Show! Music Core, Music Bank, etc. 
      • Here is a Guide by Synnara on How To Order for I-Fans.
        TUTORIAL to sign up and buy from the site if you’re interested. (but of course the others are good too so don’t worry if you can’t)
  • ⚠️  Don’t download songs illegally. Won’t count for music show wins.
  • ⚠️  Do NOT buy albums from Amazon. 

‼️ Online Voting

  • Can only vote for Super Junior if they’re in the Top 3
    • Vote only 1 time.
  • Super Junior’s name has to be written in Korean: 슈퍼주니어
  • International SMS charges apply.
    • (for this reason it may be hard for I-ELF to vote so we should focus more on online voting, album sales, and MV views)

‼️ Music Video Views

  • Youtube views are VERY important. 
    • cover 40% of total SNS points
  • Watch MV on SMTOWN’s official Youtube channel
    • ⚠️  DO NOT RE-UPLOAD
      • Chance of increasing views:
        • Watch whole view, no pause and stop.
        • better to not watch it logged-in or in incognito mode
        • after watching, close browser, wait 4-5 mins, then search and watch the mv again on YT 
        • clear history after 10 views 
        • delete cookies after every 1 hour
        • comment, like, share to increase views and SNS points
    • Music Core will count YT if you watch from their site (click here
  • Stream songs on official Korean music sites (mentioned above)
    • important in getting an all-kill
  • If MV is uploaded on SMTOWN’s official Korean channels then you can stream their as well. The main goal right now is to make them trend in Korea when the music and album comes out. 


  • Album sales + Downloads + Track Downloads + Radio Airplay + Social Media (FB, Twitter, YT, Spotify, iTunes, etc)

All information compiled and translated is from here by SJ-WORLD.NET

[UPDATE] I contact SJ-WORLD for any more information and they got back to me with the following:

DIGITAL: I-ELF can stream through Genie, Naver, Soribada & Melon. Genie and Naver are more accessible as you can get free streams through coupons, streaming links, and events. But you can also purchase a pass on Genie. However, Melon and Soribada require you to buy a pass.

PHYSICAL: According to Leesmusic, no information will be released until a week before release date. Because of [SJ-WORLD]’s long relationship with them they will take our orders as soon as info is released and they will place them quickly. We have made an estimate of prices through the sales of previous albums.

MUSIC SHOWS: STREAMING is the way to go. For award shows/charts, both Digital and Physical are important.

NEW RECORD: BTS’ LOVE YOURSELF 承 Her is currently the World’s best-selling Album (1st week) with 826,000 equivalent sales!

Sold 455,893 copies on its first day at retail, and 748,279 after one week (according to Hanteo). Both figures are new all-time records in South Korea! On the Global Rank, ‘Love Yourself 承 Her’ debuts at N°1 with 826,000 equivalent sales, the second highest week of the year, after Ed Sheeran’s 'Divide’ entered the chart with 1,789,000 sales in week 11.

[INFO] EXO’s “The War” album reaches 700k on Hanteo in less than 3 weeks! This is FIVE weeks faster than EX’ACT which took around EIGHT weeks to pass 700k. Once again, EXO has beat their own record!

Congratulations EXO! (x)


As always I would like to emphasize again that we all try our best in helping out. So don’t worry if you’re not able to do most of what’s written here. What’s important is you try to do your best given the available time you have and funds/resources! ^_^ Here are a list of things we can do to help bangtan every comeback.


Only Korean Music Apps counts towards winning in Music Shows. And this criteria often takes up half of the points to win so it’s very important. MELON is the main important app but there’s also GENIE, NAVER.. etc… 

MELON APP - you have to purchase a streaming pass to be able to stream the album/songs to make it count. iOS users can buy their own pass. Android users you need to ask help from iOS users to use your account and buy the pass for you. I bought mine from here. [HOW TO: MELON APP]

NAVER APP - !!!THEY GIVE OUT FREE STREAMING PASS!!! Yes free! You just have to sign up and follow instructions to get it. [HOW TO: NAVER APP]


It only counts if you buy from stores/online shops that counts the purchase in Gaon or Hanteo charts, otherwise your purchase won’t count. We always get good results on this so it really helps bangtan for music show wins as well. So if you can please do consider buying the albums! [LIST HERE]


Streaming and buying the album from here counts for Billboard charts so they’re important too. Please do consider purchasing from here as well and streaming on spotify to help bangtan with their Billboard ranking.


This is to make sure that every time you view the MV, it counts. The result of the views counts towards helping bangtan win in Music Shows. Not only that, we always try to get a lot of views for the first 24 hours. Please do not reupload the video on other sites, stop others from doing it as well, make sure the views only goes to the main one on bighit’s channel. [HOW TO: YOUTUBE MV]


Each music shows have different criteria. But most really have more points for digital streaming. Will post more info if there’s some voting to be done preshow. [LIST OF MUSIC SHOWS AND INFO]

Please feel free to send me an ask or chat msg for any questions!! I reply faster if you’re off anon. Thanks again ARMYs for always doing your best in helping Bangtan~ Let’s also enjoy and have fun this comeback!!!!

2013 - 2014: NOTHING BUT HOPE 

After 2 years of not getting any win, they started to tell each other “Let’s just not expect anything” but deep inside they all dreamed of a win, as V says “To be honest, just because you say “don’t expect anything” doesn’t mean we expect nothing” It was a hard time for both BTS and the fans.

If you have been with Bangtan since the start or just joined the fandom a month ago, It doesn’t matter because greater achievements and memories are yet to be made. Happy 4th BTS anniversary everyone. Let’s reach even higher from now on ^^.
