The music collection is respectably comprehensive but the player UX is confusing and convoluted. Deal breaker: can't automatically save offline music to SD card (only to internal memory). And to make it a one star review: canceling my account (and the rolling payments!) was so difficult that I had to search 멜론 해지방법 in naver and follow through some instructions provided in a blog (in Korean). I am talking about real *UX dark patterns* there, designed to make you give up cancelling.

I don't understand the complaints here. Like most korean apps you need a korean phone number. Its for verification. The layout can be confusing at first but once you get used to it, its so helpful! I love this app much more than spotify~ For people who can't understand Korean why don't you just use spotify / Apple Music / Youtube Music? There are tons of Korean songs there too. With so many options why are people bashing a Korean Music App for catering to Koreans only?

I've been using Melon for a long time. Some time around last year, I changed the plan from listen+download to streaming only. That's when I started having problems. The song would stop in the middle repeatedly. It's annoying.

안녕하세요 고객님, 멜론입니다. 이용에 불편을 드리게 되어 죄송합니다. 지속적으로 현상이 발생하실 경우 '앱 설정 - 실험실 - 앱 사용 최적화 설정'내 배터리 최적화 제외(휴대폰 설정> 전체 앱에서 멜론이 최적화 되어있다면 꺼주세요) / 백드라운드 실행 제한 제외 / 알림표시 허용을 확인 하시어 재생 재시도를 부탁드립니다. 해당 옵션을 적용하여도 지속해서 동일한 문제가 발생한다면 다소 번거로우시더라도 멜론 앱 내 1:1문의하기를 통해 안내 내용 실행 여부를 기재 하시어 문의 주시면 상세한 답변 드리도록 하겠습니다. 다시한번 서비스 이용에 불편을 드려 죄송합니다.
