As Spotify launches in South Korea, Kakao pulls artists from Spotify

  • Spotify finally launched in South Korea on the 1st of February, offering its users a 3-month trial. However, one of the biggest music distributors Kakao M have not signed onto a deal with Spotify as Spotify is direct competition to their own streaming platform Melon.

  • A wide variety of Korean artists are unavailable in South Korea on Spotify but as of today, these artists have also been pulled from Spotify worldwide.

  • More information has yet to come out but it seems likely that the songs won't return to the platform until a deal has been signed.

Open thread for a complete list, cause it goes on and on:
