K-indie on Gaon’s Digital Chart, 2012.01.08~2012.01.14

A couple of years ago Korea’s Ministry of Culture launched Gaon–an official set of charts registering music sales. Streaming, downloads, background music for online sites and mobile sales all contribute towards the total digital charts and with the big increase in popularity of Korean indie music it’s no longer a rare sight finding Korean indie songs on the TOP200. Here’s what those sales looked on the indie side last week:

4. 10cm – “애상” (+5)
97. Chang Kiha & The Faces – “풍문으로 들었소” (new)
118. Verbal Jint – “좋아보여” (feat. The Black Skirts) (-7)
121. Jaurim – “하루” (-89)
169. Acoustic Collabo – “그대와 나, 설레임” (-24)
174. Goodmorning Heaven – “Goodmorning Heaven” (feat. Hareem) (new)

If you think more artists should’ve been included on this list, or perhaps that some don’t belong please let us know and we’ll take that into consideration for next week.

Since we wrote about Chang Kiha’s new digital single last week it has been gifted with a full music video:


The other newcomer on the chart, project band Goodmorning Heaven, had the first music video from the self-titled EP released today:
