How to stream on GENIE

last update: 11-Apr-2022

Other GENIE Guides:

International fans can no longer make an account on GENIE since the policy change in January 2021 (sign up requires a Korean phone number). However if you had made an account prior to JAN 2021 you can still use it! You can purchase/rent genie accounts and passes from shops, or participate in 7-dreamers projects.

Download the app apk for android (link), change to your Korean apple ID (IOS) or go to

  • If you have limited streams (ex. 50), we recommend streaming manually (searching for the song to play) once per hour only! GENIE will only count 1 listen from a unique account per hour towards the realtime chart.
  • If you have unlimited streams, you can make a playlist & put it on repeat (you can edit & make a new playlist to avoid bot behaviour). The song can play more than once per hour, it won’t count towards the chart update, but it will still be added to the total play count!

More on how the genie chart works in our guide to genie.


On your home screen, click the menu (3 lines) bottom right, then click the settings wheel top right

Scroll down, make sure ‘maintain audio focus’ is on (android), then click ‘sound quality/playback settings’ (음질 재생 설정)

Select streaming quality AAC > click ‘playlist settings’ (재생목록 설정) at the top > select for songs to be added to the bottom of a playlist, and make sure duplicate songs are allowed in a playlist (exclude duplicates in playlist off)

Go back and click ‘streaming file temporary storage settings’ (스트리밍 파일 임시저장 설정) > make sure temp storage is turned off (if you get a notice, agree to delete)

HOW TO STREAM (limited streams)

DO NOT mute the player, fast forward or rewind, pause the songs. Streams are only counted once the full song has been played

If you have limited streams (ex. 50), play the title track once per hour only!

Click the ‘search’ icon at the bottom > search for 드림캐쳐 & click on their name to go to the artist page > like the page. Scroll down, click the play icon next to the title track to play it. Like the song & make sure it is not on repeat!

HOW TO MAKE A PLAYLIST (unlimited streams)

If you have unlimited streams, you can make a playlist & put it on repeat. The title track should play more than once per hour.

See screenshots for limited streaming: click the search icon at the bottom > search for 드림캐쳐 and click their name > click dreamcatcher’s profile & like dreamcatcher’s page

Click on the album that contains the songs you want to add > click the play button next to all the songs you want to add to the playlist (in order) & select the playlist icon. Alternatively, you can also click on a song & then the ‘+’ button at the bottom to add it to the playlist. You can add the title track multiple times! Click the song that is playing, make sure to like & put the playlist on repeat

To delete songs, click the edit button up top > select the songs you want to delete (or select all) & click ‘delete’ (삭제)

That’s all you need for streaming! Let us know if you have any questions.
