LABOUM beat IU and took their first ever #1 since debut with ''Hwi Hwi'' on this week's 'Music Bank'. Unfortunately, numerous netizens are finding LABOUM's victory unjust.



SEE ALSO: IU describes what fans do that never fails to touch her heart


The girl group failed to enter the top 100 on music charts with ''Hwi Hwi''. In fact, they were at 347th place. Meanwhile, IU topped various music charts with not just one but several of her new tracks. She also achieved a perfect all-kill with ''Palette'' and an all-kill with ''Can't Love You Anymore''. 




The total MV views of LABOUM's ''Hwi Hwi'' is also significantly low compared to IU. 







Furthermore, LABOUM's album sales only ranked 23rd in real time and 64th in weekly. (Note: LABOUM did achieve #1 on physical album chart for Gaon).


Many netizens are unaccepting of LABOUM's win considering their poor performance and sales compared to IU. 


Thousands of comments were left regarding LABOUM's controversial win on various online communities. Netizens stated, "It's a song that didn't even enter the top 100 and I've never heard of it but why did it get #1", "A track remaining on the 300s on Melon gets #1?", "'Music Bank' is making stuff up. This is nonsense", "Last time it was TEEN TOP with #1 and now LABOUM. There's something wrong with 'Music Bank', "?? This is nonsense", "I've never heard the song;;", ''Is this a scam?"

    Palette was not nominated this week, but her pre release. Do you people not do research before writing these articles? Palette will be nominated next week. Laboums win was completely justified. Sompi wrote a better article explaining this.

    Laboum is so lucky to win this. First, they aren't in the competition period with many popular group. Second, Music bank make a good manage how to scoring. It has performance score not only for selling score to lead popular artists to be on the stage not only for make some digital single and they win many times without show on any broadcasting program. It's unfair with other underrate group that they want to shine on the music show. And I would say again "IU's song in the competition isn't Palette song" @Allkpop you should edit MV view out!!!

    I think it's great, I mean the same artist always win. They are already popular I mean... Isn't it nice to see the girls from Laboum getting emotional and happy over the price? Is not that UI's song is super awesome either...
