Hanteo’s Humble Beginnings

To traverse through its history, Hanteo was founded in 1988, where it was designed to collect album sales in real time and analyze data. It is the biggest chart system associated with the Korean music industry, followed by Gaon.

The difference between Gaon and Hanteo is that Gaon computes the total of produced albums, without including the sales, so it will be difficult to assess how much of release’s popularity can arise.

Gaon charts are usually used for awardings by the end of the year.

Meanwhile, Hanteo calculates actual sales in real time basis. It’s system records data only for confirmed and purchased items. It is utilized in music show calculations such as Inkigayo, Show Champion, Music Bank, etc. It is considered a “record of individual album sales” from either physical products or digital releases.

Hanteo has grown with the Korean music industry for three decades, and will most likely be of service for years to come. The system is synchronized in over 1,500 records stores worldwide, while giving quality management of the album sales, data, and tracking of digital releases.

K-pop fans will be assured where their purchases will go and how will it affect on the charts. Considering Hallyu wave’s current popularity, it only adds up to more successful groups, artists and music quality.
