    GAON is the official industry chart system of South Korea.

    Established in 2009, songs on the Gaon Digital Chart represent the most popular songs within South Korea weekly based on a formula of digital downloads, streams and background music tracks.

    Though not disclosed to the public, it is believed Gaon's formula essentially mirrors a revenue chart system like found in Germany.

  7. That's a pretty boring song list to be honest.

    I guess I'll be rooting for Bolbbalgan4 to go all the way?
  8. Erm, those songs are kind of awful, no?

    My average for this is... going to be extremely low.
  9. Yes, the list doesn't have many K-PJ faves, but I'm making this a tradition, god damnit.

  11. Mino remains #1 this week.

    Might have to toss king an 11 for that labret piercing alone.

  17. 180 stays at #1 for another week!

    It'll likely be the final #1 of 2018, though Heize or WINNER could both challenge it.
  18. Ddd 180 fends off Millions from the top spot, claiming the spot as the final #1 of 2018.


    We have our official 25 entries.

    Voting is officially open!

    ddd please vote, do it for the kiis and drags.
  19. It’ll be interesting to see if the BTS songs get ranked above or below all of the boring tripe that SK got to number 1 in this song list.
  20. Also, to give context of how big they were, here is the 2018 Top 50 based on the points system Gaon uses with 2018 #1s in purple and 2017 #1s in blue.
