    Please note, singles released prior to the creation of the Gaon chart in 2009 have no confirmed with sales figures obtained through SM press releases.
    *These digital sales occurred following a price increase of digital sales within South Korea where digital pricing increased by up to 300%. Gaon have since provided an alternative methodology for calculation these sales and the figures provided are based on these.
