Best Ways To Help:


1) Digital streaming and downloading

  • This is the most important way to help as it is the biggest portion that goes into winning music shows. [General Digital Streaming Guidelines]
    • MelOn is the most important streaming service [Tutorial]
      • Only iOS users can directly purchase MelOn, Mnet and other paid Korean streaming vouchers, so you will have to ask a fellow CandY or message on Twitter the following people with your MelOn account information to purchase the voucher for you:
      • @CROSSGENE_ASIA or @crossgenecandy on Twitter with your MelOn account information, so we can log into your account and buy the voucher for you.
      • You will need to pay crossgene_asia on our Paypal e-mail beforehand:
    • Genie is the second most important, and you can stream on it for free through Genie coupons or links [Tutorial]
  • *Important note* those who are new to buying digital streaming vouchers, please attempt buying your vouchers at least two days before the comeback, so if you run into any problems you can ask fellow CandY to help you.

2) Youtube MV streaming

  • There are a few key points to keep in mind when streaming:
    • Do not use shortcut methods like auto-refresh, many tabs or incognito: it will make your views count as spam
    • Use the AutoHD Chrome extension
    • You can download the Softether VPN so that you can change IPs whenever viewing on normal Youtube
    • Use different browsers like Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome to view the MV.
    • The manual way is here as follows:
      1. Open up different windows in different browsers, 1 window per browser at a time
      2. Be logged out of your Youtube account
      3. Search in Youtube: CROSS GENE
      4. Watch the entire MV without pausing
      5. Once done, close the windows and repeat steps 1-5

3) Pre-voting for music shows

  • This is voting done before shows air their episode and is super easy & free.
    • You can create multiple e-mails to vote on Music Core and Idol Champ! [Secret E-Mail Shorcut Tutorial] DM us @CROSSGENE_ASIA on Twitter for the password to the tutorial
    • Mnet only allows sign up with social media accounts, and will block IPs if they vote continuously on the same day with different accounts, so to bypass IP bans, sign up and use VPNs to change your IP and region. They are super easy to use. A few you can use: [Tunnelbear] [Hola VPN]

4) Buying their physical album

  • Physical album sales are some of the biggest ways you can support Cross Gene.
    • Remember to always buy from trusted sellers that count your purchase toward the Hanteo chart
    • Places you can buy CROSS GENE’s album that count toward Hanteo: Mwave – Ktown4uKpopmartYesasia – Catchopcd

5) SNS Points: Tweeting & Facebook Sharing

  • SNS points count towards Inkigayo 35%, part of it is MV views and another part of it is how represented CROSS GENE are on Social media, such as Twitter and Facebook.
    • Tweet with the hashtag “#크로스진” and “#달랑말랑” as much as you can (maximum 100 tweets per hour though)
      • There is an easier way to do so. DM @CROSSGENE_ASIA for our secret weapon regarding tweeting
    • On CROSS GENE’s official Facebook, like, share and comment on their posts
    • Use the [Gaon Social Chart Tutorial] to share CROSS GENE’s MV on Twitter/Facebook/Weibo [Weibo Sign Up Tutorial] and increase SNS points this way
  • Make sure to watch official live performances from all music shows as well to count toward SNS points!

6) Live voting and searching

  • For Mcountdown, Music Core, The Show and Inkigayo, the top 2 or 3 artists nominated for the win will have a period of live voting
    • Sending SMS votes can increase the ranking. This will only count if Cross Gene are in the Top 3. Votes otherwise will not be counted.
    • For ifans, it costs a lot to send international SMS so you can use, to send them for free (choose your country as Korea).
    • This will only count once and you must only vote while The Show is broadcasting and when the MC’s tell you to vote. This is how the voting layout should look in you must just put “크로스진” DO NOT PUT CROSS GENE IN ENGLISH! It must be in Hangeul.
    • Numbers to use for each show
      • The Show – 821119
      • MCountdown – 822566
      • Music Core – 820505
      • Inkigayo – 821245
    • Example (use the numbers given above though please!)
    • M Countdown SMS voting
      • Watch the shows live from this page so you know when to send in those votes!
  • Search 크로스진 on MelOn, Naver, Daum and Nate during live broadcasts to help CROSS GENE trend and increase SNS points
