just a quick q, if you don’t mind: when would buying an album not be counted for gaon? I’m kind of confused as to how it ever wouldn’t count. Like, even if you’re buying it from a non-official store, they still had to get it from the official supplier wouldn’t they? So wouldn’t that count? Sorry if this is dumb haha

It’s always gonna count for Gaon but if you can’t buy it from an official store it’s okay but would be better to do it after the prmotions end or after the korean awards end but that’s gonna take almost a year
