MIAK January 2007 Top 50 Albums

Most of the Korean sales on this blog come from GAON which is linked to KMCIA, The Korean Music Content Industry Association. Before the KMCIA there was MIAK, the Music Industry Association of Korea which ran from 2002 to 2008. It would provide both digital and album sales information for the industry and had archives going back to 2001 1999, which unfortunately no longer exists except for a few screencaps. I am translating what I can find.

DD = Digital Download Card
MC = Music Cassette
CD = Compact Disc

Seoul Records became LOEN which became 1theK.

Alternate Version of the same chart: I have no idea why there are two, perhaps MIAK updated some stuff. I don't know if that's the case of which is first. It could be the addition of Digital Download sales of the albums.

    1. no, music cassettes are no longer released, they are tapes... not sure if you've ever used one... depends how old you are. They went out along with the floppy disc. Some artists still make limited copies of their records on vinyl since it has made a comeback.

      Digital download cards are the same as Music Cards in Japan, basically you buy the card and get a code to download the album digitally. I don't know if they are still used in Korea or if everything is online now with no physical card.
