GAON Finally Responds to the Changes in DAs

GAON has finally released an article discussing the drop in DAs that many have noticed during the year. They mention both the ending of the grace period for old package prices and the new regulations against bulk streaming and buying in regards to digital chart manipulation (brought on by the concerns of several big name companies). This has led to changes in the 3rd quarter of 2013 in DAs and less so in downloads.



This chart shows the total DAs for the Top 100 songs monthly. GAON notes that the dip in February is less drastic than it seems because February has fewer days. There is a huge peak in April when Gentleman, the song with the highest DAs for the year by about 30 million DAs, was released. This was also when Genie was added to GAON's DA tabulations. From there on its has been a decrease with July DAs dipping below March. August was even lower, by far the lowest this year. The recovery in September was brought on by a crunch to release music and some big names releasing albums (G-Dragon, Busker Busker, Master's Sun OST) and the same is expected with October (Busker Busker cont. & IU) but still September was well below February.



This chart shows the average DAs for the Top 100 songs monthly from January to July compared to the DAs of the Top 100 during August and September. August sales were 51% the average of Jan-July while September was slightly better with 67% the total DAs of the average from Jan-July. GAON attributes the drop in August to the elimination of fraudulent bulk streaming and buying as per new government regulations.



Consistency has also been an issue as songs are remaining in the Top 50 for fewer weeks during the first quarter compared to songs released in the second quarter. #1 songs remained in the Top 50 for an average of 11.8 weeks during the first quarter compared to 9.8 weeks in the 2nd quarter. GAON speculates, however, that the changes made to streaming and downloading rules will mean an increase in consistency so that songs that are truly popular won't be pushed down by ghost accounts streaming and downloading a song thousands of times.

DA Patterns and Downloads vs Streaming

Here are a selection of charts GAON has published:

This chart shows the DAs of the #1 song of the week on GAON starting from 2NE1's Falling in Love, which was the last song with over 30 million DAs until Busker Busker released Love, At First, to last week's #1, IU's The Red Shoes. It shows the general DA slump the industry has been in the last couple of months.



This chart shows the total DAs of the Top 10 in the given weeks. The 5th week is the week Busker Busker released their album while the last week is the week IU released her album. The DAs of the songs in the Top 10 this past week, which is the last one on the graph had a total of 163,080,660 DAs.


This one shows the ratio of streaming to downloads in percentage for the songs that were #1 in downloads in recent weeks. This shows how a song with a high ratio of streaming, rather than downloads, will have lower DAs. (light green is streaming and dark green is downloads).



Songs are (from left to right): Busker Busker's Love, At First, IU's The Red Shoes, Mad Clown and Soyu's Stupid in Love, Yoon MiRae's Touch Love, Exo's Growl, and Bumkey's Attraction.

While streaming accounts for up to 40% of daily and realtime charts on music sites, it is not as reflective on sales as streaming does not bring in as much revenue as downloads.

Drama Popularity [October]

The Good Doctor sees a slight increase in ratings, now over 20% across the board and doubling its first episode viewership. JungYi Goddess of Fire sees a slight dip to its already poor ratings, falling into the single digits. Empire of Gold ended with ratings around 10% and its successor, The Suspicious Housekeeper starring Choi Ji-Woo and Lee Sung-Jae along with a supporting cast of child actors, is just slightly above JungYi. It is only on its 2nd episode while The Good Doctor will soon be ending.

The Master's Sun has ended with ratings over 20%, remaining first in its timeslot among dramas. It will be replaced by The Heirs starring Lee Min-Ho and Park Shin-Hye. Two Weeks also just ended with slightly higher ratings and a real improvement from its first episode, still it only managed ratings in the two digits. It will be replaced by Medical Top Team starring Kwon Sang-Woo and Jung Ryeo-Won as well as SHINee's Minho in a supporting role. The Blade and the Petal ended its run never charting and it was replaced by 2 episode mini drama Waiting for Love starring Daniel Choi and Boa. When that ended Secret Love began airing which is on its 4th episode. It is starring Ji SungHwang Jung-Eum and Lee Da-Hee. Although its first few episodes did not chart it is now seeing rating between 8 and 12%.

The King's Family which replaced You're the Best Lee Soon Shin easily passes the 30% mark both in Seoul and Nationwide after a slow start. It is #1 in its timeslot by far. As I Summon You Gold ended with over 20% ratings, it was replaced by A Little Love Never Hurts starring Lee Sang Yeob and Hong Soo Hyun. It is only on episode 2 but is already showing an upward trajectory with ratings in the mid teens. Wonderful Mama ended with ratings around 8% and was replaced by Passionate Love starring Jun Kwang Ryul and Hwang Shin Hye. Unfortunately so far, 2 episodes in, its ratings are even worse. In late night weekend dramas, Scandal increases as well, remaining in first place. Goddess of Marriage sees an increase in ratings now firmly in the double digits.

For Monday to Friday dramas, A Tale of Two Sisters continues its successful run, increasing several points with only a couple of episodes left. It passed over the 20% mark and is one of the highest rated dramas currently. With only two episodes left Princess Aurora starring Jun So Min and Park Young Kyu has reached 20% ratings, doubling its initial ratings. Melodrama Ruby's Ring starring Lee So Yeon and Im Jung Eun has seen a slight increase since its first episode. Ugly Alert sees a slight drop, falling out of the double digits as it nears the end of its run. In the morning You're Great, Really, is struggling to keep double digit ratings but that is enough to keep it above Two Women's Room.

The #1 drama is The King's Family as is often the case with dramas in that timeslot. Coming in second is A Tale of Two Sister with The Master's Sun coming in third. These dramas are soon to end so while the #1 spot may not be up for grabs, #2 and #3 will be soon. Lowest rated drama is SBS' Passionate Love, rating around 6%.

*** ratings available for Monday - Friday are incomplete, only some have ratings.
**** no ratings for cable dramas
