JYP Requests Shaun To Be Investigated Over Sajaegi Chart Manipulation
Shaun of THE KOXX has recently been getting a lot of attention but not for the right reasons.
His song ‘Way Back Home’, managed to beat out TWICE and BLACKPINK on the Melon charts, creating the same scenario that took place back in April with singer Nilo.
Park JinYoung of JYP Entertainment released an official statement saying “After discussions with various agencies, the authorities have agreed to investigate and look into the matter.”
But it’s not just JYP that suspects Shaun of being involved in chart manipulations. Netizens have pointed out that Way Back Home, not even being the title song of his recent album, took the number one spot faster than Nilo’s Pass Away, which was also under suspicion of chart manipulations.
Streaming analysis of Shaun’s Way Back Home didn’t show any abnormal behavior, supporting his agency’s claim that there were no illegal marketing tactics or chart manipulations involved.
