[MHN.korea.com] Singer Nilo ranked the top in Melon chart with the song 'Pass by'
The reason why Nilo got suspected for his song climbing the chart was his song 'Pass by' ranked the top beating TWICE and EXO-CBX even during the wee hours.
During the wee hours, Idol fandom turned on the 'streaming' of their best singers to put the singers on the top.
However, even the top idols' rank drops after 2am. It is because most of the fans go sleep. Yoon Jong-sin, Lim Chang-jeong, BigBang, IU and many other singers' hit songs went through the same progress.
But Nilo showed his song rank reached its peak after 2am. In the morning time, it is natural that users of Melon drop, and especially Nilo's graph showed different progress and has been suspected to be 'panic buying'.
The same suspect has even led to other singers including Jang Baek-cheol, Hanhana, 40 and more who are in the same management company. When look carefully after Jang Baek-cheol and Nilo's live ranking graph progress, their chart reaches the peach at 2 to 5am.
Limez entertainment company CEO Lee Si-woo replied, "Limez never do panic buying" and added, "Facebook page 'Public goose bumping live songs' has made to introduce amateur musicians to the public, though got failed to earn the profits sold it to other company.
Nilo, during the interview with one of the press explained the doubt by saying, "Limez entertainment is the company majoring in SNS marketing and viral marketing, has their own know-how to attract fans. And it was just the result after hard-working."
