The ‘Data Lab’ project, which analyzes and discloses music consumption patterns, will also be converted into a regular service in the ‘Melon Hall’. It plans to select artists who have shown growth every month and release data in the form of magazines.

Cho Eun-young, head of Melon Service Headquarters at Kakao Entertainment, said, “I hope that ‘Melon Hall’ will establish itself as a representative space to honor the stars of the music industry at home and abroad.”
