The staff of Music Bank released an apology to EXO_SC for a recent chart mistake. The apology reads as follows:
“ Hello, this is the staff of ‘Music Bank.’
We wish to notify you that there was an error in the rankings of the weekly chart on July 24 due to a miscalculation. Therefore, we wish to correct the rankings for K-Chart for the fourth week of July, meaning that EXO-SC was in first place and BLACKPINK was in second place.
Music Bank’s K-Chart rankings are calculated based on digital streaming, broadcast appearance, viewer preference, and album sales. The broadcast appearance criteria is calculated based on the number of times a song is played during KBS programs. The error occurred while calculating this criteria, and after looking over the scores once more, we determined that a mistake had been made.
The K-Chart rankings have been updated.
We deeply apologize to viewers who love “Music Bank” and the two artists for causing confusion, and we will do our best to ensure that this does not happen again in the future.”
The chart has indeed been updated and the boys are receiving the recognition they deserve for their hit song “1 Billion Views”. If you haven’t had a chance to listen to “1 Billion Views” yet check out the video below!
