KBS officially addressed the recent controversy regarding BTS and IOI's rankings on October 28 installment of 'Music Bank'

On October 28, BTS's "Blood, Sweat, & Tears" beat IOI's "Very Very Very" and won first place. After the show, some viewers raised their concern about a potential error in the point calculation. Here are some of the comments from the IOI fans: 

"Please recalculate the points."

"Fix the #1 win that IOI was robbed of."

"We want official feedback."

"KBS ignores viewers."

"Music Bank #1 win is weird."

"Music Bank #1 win is incorrect."

These concerns prompted 'Music Bank' to release the exact numbers and calculation. The following is the full statement from 'Music Bank': 

"Hello, we are the production team of 'Music Bank.'

The October 28 live broadcast of 'Music Bank' and its 'K-Chart's 1st and 2nd place along with the points brought in a lot of questions and concerns, so we are here to reveal the details of the calculation method and points. 

*Each category's percentage is not a reflective percentage but the percentage from the final, total points. 

[Calculation for K-Chart points] 

Digital airplay (online streaming) 65%, 130,000 points (online 117,000 points + mobile 13,000 points) + album sales 5%, 10,000 points + broadcasting appearance 20%, 40,000 points (TV 34,000 points + radio 6,000 points) + viewers' preference survey 10%, 20,000 points = total points 200,000 points

*numbers less than decimals are rounded up 

[BTS - "Blood, Sweat & Tears] 

Digital streaming: online 2535.4 points + mobile 138.1 points = 2673.5 points

Album sales: percentage in the market 41.52% (sales 89,308 albums) = 4152 points 

Broadcast appearance: TV 685.88 points + radio 59.52 points = 745.40 points 

Viewers' preference survey: out of a total survey of 6987, they earned 284. 4.1% of the answers, 813 points

Total points = 8384 points 

[IOI - "Very Very Very"] 

Digital streaming: online 4338 points + mobile 506 points = 4844 points 

Album sales: percentage in the market 23.45% (sales 50,433 albums) = 2345 points 

Broadcasting appearance: TV 588 points + radio 83 points = 671 points 

Viewers' preference survey: excluded because it was conducted 1 week prior to the music release 

Total points = 7860 points 

We used the method above to determine that BTS ranks #1 and IOI ranks #2 on the K-Chart for the fourth week of October. 

Thank you to all the viewers, and we will always try our best to give you prompt and accurate feedback to your concerns."

LOL in conclusion IOI was robbed. "Viewers preference survey" IOI got 0 because they were excluded and BTS received 800+ and with those IOI losed. If you excluded 1 you should excluded the others to make the final decision fair.
