How to create streaming links

This time around, SJWorld encourages E.L.F who can’t use their coupon because they have no time to stream to share all or part of their coupon through genie streaming links!

You don’t have to share all streams, you may share an amount out our your 100 free streams with ELF who have time on their hands to stream when you don’t. For example if you still want to stream but know you won’t be able to use all 100 streams—each song must be played once per hour so after listening to the whole album you must wait till the next hour to play again.

 

Via PC
  • Search the artist (ex. Super Junior/Henry/Zhoumi/Yesung/etc.)
  • Go to the song you want to share.
  • Once there, scroll down to the list of songs and select one individually by clicking on the check box. Check images below.
    • Note: The use of streaming link is first come, first serve, so we recommend you only share one song per link.

Screen Shot 2017-10-30 at 12.53.12 AM

  • After selecting the song/s you want to share, press triple dot and then select “공유하기/음악나누기” (Share music).

  • A pop up window will come out.

How to get 50 free streams

Genie runs an event that allows Genie users (users who already have an account) to share invite links that they can share with people who aren’t yet signed up to Genie, but this event IS NOT an ongoing event and will not always appear. If the event goes up again we will notify ELF so they can share with friends or through SJWorld so we can pass it on to ELF who do not have a genie account yet. We recommend waiting until the last week of October/ early days of November and if the event does not go up, people with no genie account that can and want to support may make a Genie account then.
