For those who don't do know; Kris was accused for manipulating the iTunes chart using bots.
I made a thread on Twt explaining the mess in a chronological order.
Adapted from that, I'm sharing the truth here.
It's a long post but a "good" post to refer to when people bs.
But if you’re only up for some quick facts; the 3rd part is kinda TL;DR…
1. On November 2nd, Kris released his album “Antares” on iTunes.
Continue in the spoiler. Warning: very image heavy.
8. If not bots, then it must be his huge Chinese/overseas following using VPN to buy/stream his newest album.
This was already speculated by most Kpop fans (no surprise).
However, other people start to confuse bots with VPN.
The rumors about him using bots to manipulate charts were still rampant.
