KBS “Music Bank,” rebirth of ranking system


The viewers of KBS “Music Bank” just witnessed the rebirth of its music chart.

For several previous episodes, “Music Bank” had the “Music Chart,” “Digital Chart,” and “Viewers’ Choice Chart” but on the 11th, all the charts were integrated into what the program calls the “K-Chart.”

“This new system was made because we wanted to start a fair ranking system that excludes elements such as the site ARS (Audience Response Systems) voting, which can be influenced by fan clubs and the TV network’s subjective selection of what gets broadcast, which can tarnish the objectivity of the chart,” Music Bank Yoon Hyun Joon PD explained.

K-Chart is based on 3 criteria: 50% on mobile and online ranking, 30% on panel interview of viewers’ choice (90,000 people or more) and 20% on album sales.
