The chart is an aggregate of digital downloads, streaming and background music. It ranks all songs, as well as separate rankings for domestic and international, in weekly, monthly and year-end charts. It started tracking sales on 11 April 2010.[1] It is complied from online data provided by web-based music providers Olleh Music, genie, Melon, Mnet, Soribada, Naver Music, KakaoMusic and Bugs.


The Gaon Music Chart was launched in February 2010. It was originally planned to be a bi-annual chart when the Gaon Charts launched in early 2010.[2] Eventually, the chart covered this and was released weekly and monthly like all the other charts.
