YG Entertainment recently revealed that G-Dragon's new solo album 'Kwon Ji Yong' will be sold not in the usual CD but via USB. This unique form of 'Kwon Ji Yong' is stirring up a debate about the very definition of an album.
According to Hankook Ilbo on June 13, the Korea Music Content Association has decided to accept and include the USB in counting the total album sales. The decision was made to adapt to the changes in the industry. Music chart site Hanteo has also announced that they will accept the USB as an official album and include it in counting the album sales.
