On July 28, KBS’s ‘Music Bank’ apologized for the error they made for the rankings of the latest episode that was aired on July 24.
Here is their official statement below,
“Hello, we are the staffs of Music Bank.
“We wish to notify 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. EXO-SC was in first place and BLACKPINK was in second place.
Music Bank’s K-Chart rankings are calculated based on digital streaming, ㅜnumber of broadcast, viewer preference, and album sales. The number of broadcast 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.
Now 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.“
After the ranking has been updated, EXO-SC won the first place with ‘1 Billion Views’ with a score of 6,431 points.
