Here is a general guide to how to stream and download TVXQ upcoming songs on MelOn.
Streaming songs refers to playing the full songs (not the previews) on the respective chart’s app or website with no downloads. The ranking system in the Korean digital charts considers both of the streaming and downloading with varying percentages (e.g. MelOn considers 60% on Downlonds and 40% on Streaming).
MelOn chart is of a great importance, that is why you will often see tutorials on how to make an account there and purchase a streaming pass. Therefore, we are posting about it~
Special thanks to @snxy for her general guide here (*^▽^*)! This post will refer to it, as well as our own experience.
There are four main steps required: downloading the app/s, making accounts, purchasing the passes, and streaming/downloading.
1) Download the apps

As many know now, Oricon Chart no longer counts products shipped overseas from any Japanese store, that’s it, right now Only products shipped locally/inside Japan are counted.
However, there is a way for overseas fans who wish to have their Tohoshinki purchases count in Oricon Chart:
- Buy from an online Japanese store that count on Oricon (e.g. like the 1-3 stores listed above, or check more here).
- Ship it to a local (Japanese) address.
- After it arrives there, ship your item to your oversea address.
How to get a Japanese address?
- You could use the help of a friend who lives in Japan, by shipping your purchase to their address then they ship it to yours abroad.
- You could use Shipments Forwarding Services such as Tenso or Celga, which provides you with a local shipping address you can use for any online Japanese stores to ship the desired items locally first, then Tenso/Celga collects it and ship it to your original address overseas. Read their websites for more information on the procedure, available shipping methods and the handling fees.
