'Inkigayo's voting system has come under fire.
At the end of the 9th episode, fans noticed a startling change in the new ranking system. The new maximum value for real-time votes had changed from the previous 1000 to 6000 - meaning that the votes counted as much as the music sales. While they'd been told that the real-time voting during the show had changed, they didn't realize that the change would be so significant. The first ones up with the new system were GOT7, A Pink, and Park Hyo Sin, and fans were dismayed at the sudden change (however, even if the maximum real-time votes were 1000 and things are scaled down, GOT7 still wins the show by a wide margin).

After the show, viewers went to the 'Inkigayo' page to demand if this was legitimate. Many felt that it was wrong for real-time votes to count as much as the music sales did, pointing out that the show was not a popularity contest but a music show. Others thought it was unfairly biased for boy groups, who normally have larger fan bases than girl groups do.
There is currently no statement from 'Inkigayo'. What do you think of the situation?
