The Korea Music Contents Association announced that they would rebrand the existing Gaon chart to Circle Chart and reorganize some of the contents. Gaon chart, which first started as a domestic music chart, has now become Circle chart, which will collect K-pop related data around the world.
Charts including Digital, Streaming, Album, and Social will remain as is and will add a new Global K-Pop chart category. With this rebranding, they will add the weekly album sales in addition to the annual and monthly sales. They hope that this rebranding will help with more accurate information that can be utilized in the industry.
