Streaming on Melon

After downloading, stream the songs on melon to put the songs, especially the title track, on top of melon’s charts!

  • Using your computer
    • Listen to the full version of the songs, especially the title song, on the melon website.
    • Downloading the songs to your computer and listening to them using the melon player might not count as streaming
    • Make sure there’s a wifi icon right next to the song. The mp3 icon won’t count as streaming.
  • Using your smart phone (safer)
    • Download the melon app: http://t.co/RrWVfTlWw8
    • You might have to change your phone settings to unblock the app first before you download it.
    • Even if you download the songs to your phone from the melon app, listening to them will not count as streaming if the songs do not have 다운 beside them.
    • After you download the songs to your phone, clear your playlist.
    • Put the songs again in the playlist and make sure you see 다운 beside the songs. This is the right way of streaming:
    • Turn on your phone’s internet/wifi/3G/4G and listen to the full version of the songs using the melon app.
    • The melon app will continuously play the songs even if you use your phone for other things.
  • Stream the title track as much as you can~
