MIAK June 2008 Top 50 Albums

Most of the Korean sales on this blog come from GAON which is linked to KMCIAThe 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.

Comment with any questions!

  1. Hello! Thanks for updating this rare chart again. I would like to ask 3 questions:
    1. Baby baby(repackage) was just released in march, why is it not in the top 50?
    2. Why is there no cassette released for Snsd 1st album?
    3. Is the total 121,143 overall or just for 2008?

    1. I assume Baby Baby just did not sell enough in June to be in June's top 50 because this shows only top 50 album of june 2008 with their accumulated sales.
      SM pretty much stopped releasing cassette versions of their albums in 2006.
      The sales are overall not just 2008 from what I can see because even albums from January had a higher accumulated sales meaning it had to come from the previous year.

    2. Actually now that I think about it I'm not sure if MIAK adds repacks together or not.

    3. Thank you. There is no repackage album on this chart so I think miak added the sales together. Snsd is too good,that not charting in top 50 after 3 months is ridiculous.
