Question about Kang Daniel Gaon points (even Lim Young Woong)

  • So Kang Daniel new song got 54 million points on gaon, a number post reform that neither IU nor BTS could get.

    I want to break down the components:

    1. The song is non existing on streaming chart, so I believe major of the point is from BGM and download.

    2. I am not sure how big the BGM chart effect, but I dont think it has much impact to get this many points.

    3. Download: this one a very tricky one, I dont think Daniel fanbase is any bigger then BTS or IU. I believe if download can drive the Gaon points this much, Korean Army already done that long before. Even Life goes on for the first 2 weeks (10 days tracking) combine just barely around this number, even LGO had better streaming number.

    So I think there will be 2 options:

    A. Fans bought digital downloads on all the platforms that counted towards chart. But I dont think Army has not done this, consider how huge the army is.

    B. Unlimited download from a strange source which allow fan buy multiple copies of the same song. Something BTS did for their web store. But again, if BTS fans know about it, they already mass bought before.


    What do you think? :eyes:

  • Anyone having more points on GAON than IU and Brave Girls in 2021 is strange case.

  • It's just fans mass-downloading. That's literally all lmao


    There is no point in mass-downloading anyway, as the song will most likely free-fall and drop the next week. Fans don't have enough money and time to continue mass-downloading for the rest of it's chart run. It's not smart in the long run.

    I'm pretty sure this Gaon thing is only a recent issue, I don't remember anything like this happening when I started tracking charts. So there's no point in bringing BTS into this really. As for IU, she has a large fanbase but I don't think they're as dedicated as Kang Daniel. You underestimate the dedication most BG/male soloist fandoms have.

    So you said army does not care about downloading the song so it could get higher points on gaon? Army keep streaming every day, even organise time frame to mass stream to get over uls in a certain point of time. The reason dynamite keep rose up in top 10 due to fandom mass stream in critical moment to get it past other songs. So Army already got on board with download part as well

    Did you even read what I said eye-

    :pepe-life-support:

  • Only GAON can tell us. I mean it also makes sense from your point, every fandom can try that way to increase the download, the difference only on the fandom's tenacity and dedication. I think many big fandoms have that thing.

  • Kang Daniel won a survival show. Produce 101 season 2 was a phenomenom in S.K. He was the It Boy of S. Korea, Wanna One even rivals BTS popularity there during it's ran. He was the most popular member by a high margin.

    Survival show breeds dedicated fandoms. As evidenced by Enhypen. Well, Kang Daniel had the most dedicated fans. He was self-employed, he didn't get much screen time in the first few episode. It was when fancams came out that he went viral, in a massive way. He was cute and sexy, a talented dancer with loads of charisma, great stage presence, he had great body proportion, 60cm shoulders, like Jin, tall, and long legs like a model. He started working at 15 as a construction worker, waiter, etc. Lived in a small room, where students lived. Everyone knows how Koreans love hard workers. I heard his fancams got hundreds of million of views in Naver tv. Hard to believed, but he was even more popular than the show. So he won produced. He became the center of Wanna One.


    His popularity skyrocketed even more when he joined a variety show. Where the general public went crazy over him. They like his personality and next door boy good looks. He became S. Korea's It Boy. Was and is still called Nation's Center, Nation's Idol, God Kang Daniel, Nieri, Nielmoyed, because he look like a Samoyed dog., and many more. He was number 1 in brand ranking reputation before Jimin. He has a lot of CFs, high paying ones, he's in a lot of magazine covers, he still has 5 CF endorsement to this day. He sold out products the way BTS does in SK. He was in variety everyday. His name is mentioned a few times a day in media even today. He trends multiple times in twitter. He was the measurement of success used by talk show host. Kids love him, noonas, mothers, grandparents love him. He was the Nations Boyfriend. Fan boying him became a family activity. He was the Olympic representative, he was the Busan ambassador. There was a Daniel Kang fever in the whole country.


    Then Wanna One disbanded. The party ended. His company screwed him over, sold his contract rights to third parties without his consent, his company by the way owned CJ, owners of Mnet, those snakes. He had the courage to fight for his freedom, at 22 years of age. He sued, he won, which is a big deal, as he only came from a poor family originally, he only got GED, it was a story of good beating evil. Daniel vs Goliath. Mnet parent company got pissed and blacklisted him. Created fake news, gossips rumors that try to destroy him, antis joined them. But nothing stick. He has a very good, clean, likable, sweet personality. The gp loves him.


    He wasn't able to go to variety anymore tho, he can't promote music. He decided to open his own company, to debut as a solo artist, in July 2019, fans supported him, they bought a then record breaking 500k+ albums for his support. They had a long wait for content from him, so they did all they can to show support. Then Dispatch, owned by CJ/Mnet, those disgusting peace of shit, exposed his relationship with Jihyo of Twice. One week after his debut. 😭

    All Hell broke loose, antis had a field day, cyberbullying him. Some fans left, mostly teens. It got so bad that he suffered from depression and panic attacks. He had to take a hiatus from the industry. The fandom became over protective of him after that, because they almost lost him 2 times.


    After he comeback. They showed full support. That's why he has won Music awards every comeback, since debut, 14/16? Music awards, since his solo debut. He sold 1 million+ albums in 1 year, after his debut. Near 2 Million album sold this April, not bad for a 24 years old, male, solo act, without big company backing. 😉


    Kang Daniel and his fandom had gone through so much. Throughout it all they've been very loyal, hard working, dedicated and willing to spend money on their idol. They've learned what is the most important, supporting their Nieri. They don't join fan wars and mostly stay in their corner and only comes out to defend their faves.


    I read other fandom are always surprised when Kang Daniel won awards while their group can't. It got ugly sometimes. Same thing as what's happening now. People wonder how Kang Daniel gets this achievements. Suspicious of his success. Post like this. 🙄


    If you support your faves, and not an Army, work hard, you'll know Danity, because you'll always face Kang Daniel and Danity, when it came time for comeback and award shows. One thing of note is Danity skews older, in their 20s, and older. They have people who has money to spend, and they'll willingly spend money on Daniel. He's still very popular in SK and SEA. His Chinese bar bought a lot of albums for him and donated a lot to fundraising efforts held by Danity. He is not that popular internationally.


    Tldr. Kang Daniel has a very dedicated, domestic, loyal, hard working fanbase. They got the record in Gaon by mass downloading. They not only won in digital, they also top the download chart and top the bgm chart. Top Genie. Top youtube views this week. Those combined managed to break the record IU set. Army's and other fandom focuses on streaming.


    Thank you for reading.


    Ps. Karma is Danity. Produced 101 vote rigging scandal happened and produced groups got banned in music award shows and got blacklisted by broadcast companies.

  • So just you know when you almost lost your idol 2 times and when your idol face injustice from the industry and hartred from basically every other fandoms then you'll understand what dedication mean.

    And for accusing our fandom union of cheating, just know that Daniel's anti are also really dedicated and already reported our fanbases to higher authorities months ago, they already got investigated and came out of it clean.

    We have nothing to hide, we are probably the fandom that post the most receipts of every transaction of money we do because we have to protect Daniel from these massive antis fans only looking for 1 mistake.

    No, Dynamite isn't mass streamed on Melon to get back in top 10, Melon is UL-based now. Streams don't mean shit

    Is he.....you know?
