Soribada : Become a Music Card holder + Why Should I?

Reasons why holding this Soribada Music Card is so important

(1) Affordable+Good Buy = Unlimited Listening+Download 40 songs for 1 month

(2) Music charts take into heavy consideration of Soribada, too. especially when globalization is on the rise.

(3) You don't have to be a Korean member of Soribada so that your participation will count in -- NO

(4) If you're a foreigner, even if you want to join as a member, they no longer execute that service for now
--ie; meaning: you can only purchase this Music Card so that your participation of supporting the artist counts in (Stream/Download).

By entering on your address bar and then immediately heading to go search for your desired song where you click on it and start listening = do you think that's streaming?
Yeah it is, BUT it's NOT counted into charts...
So = In vain

That is why, pls understand that the purchasing of CARD is very pivotal.

Digital sales on Mnet >Soribada.

Melon + Bugs takes up 60% of calculation for ranking

The singers with their songs on the No.1 spot on Melon+Bugs attained much more % for accumulated point scaling than singers with their songs on the No.1 spot on Dosirak+Mnet+Soribada

Which just means, Melon>Bugs>Mnet>Dosirak>Soribada
