How to Buy Songs on Mnet

Do you love KPOP? Would you like to know how to download MP3s from Mnet without purchasing a ticket?

At, you can buy non-DRM music files à la carte [minimum of two] using a foreign debit or credit card. Each song costs 600 Korean Won plus 10% value-added tax. That’s around $0.60.

Before you start, I advise you to read this post about installing Quick Manager which is used to download songs as well as music videos from Mnet. Please use Internet Explorer 10 or 11 if you are a Windows user.

Buying Songs on Mnet

This guide is tested on Internet Explorer 10.

1. Open IE and go to

You will be redirected to Mwave if you’re using a foreign IP address. To avoid, use a free virtual private network, for example VPN Gate, or a proxy server.

Mnet Home Page

2. Type your username or email address and password in the corresponding text boxes, then click 로그인 [Login].

3. Search a song in Hangul or English using the title.

4. Tick the specific song you want to buy on the search results page, then click 다운로드 [Download]. See screenshot below as reference.

Check the song in the list then click the Download button

Proceed to the next page.

  1. does this method still useable in 2017? please help i have melon and naver music but they are useless

      1. I wonder why it won’t load for me at all :( For the proxy server settings, what should I put for IP address/port number? In the WikiHow you linked, it had and port 80. Should I do the same?

      2. Now I got as far as step 9. This is what I get:

        *_*님! 실명인증이 필요합니다!

        “회원님은 이메일 가입한 회원으로”
        실명인증이 필요합니다.

        실명인증되어야 유료 콘텐츠를 구매하실 수 있습니다.

        실명인증 후, 상품을 구매해주세요.

        My Korean skills are very limited, but based on Google Translate, it seems to be telling me my e-mail is not verified, but it is. :( After this, I get a window to download a keylogger thing :(

        1. You’ll be able to complete the verification process if you have a Korean SSN or alien registration number. If you created your account using an email address, I’m afraid Mnet will not allow you to buy files from them unless you verify your identity.

          1. I see :( How were you able to complete your transaction then? I just followed your tutorial on how to make an Mnet account.
