AOA are still caught up in a controversy over their wins on music shows, but while 'Music Bank' addressed and rectified the mistake recently, SBS MTV's 'The Show' has only now responded about the girls' win on the May 24 airing.


On this particular episode, AOA, Seventeen, and April were the contenders for first place. The aggregate of the preliminary scores, real-time online votes from China, and text message votes from Korea showed that AOA won first place for the fourth week of May. 


Though the aggregate scores and votes pointed toward AOA's win, Seventeen's fans were not convinced. According to the Seventeen's fans, in the calculating of the preliminary scores, which encompasses the MV view count from Chinese video site Tudou, AOA maintained the topmost score while Seventeen's score was at a zero. The aggregate scores showed that there was only a 125-point difference between AOA and Seventeen for the fourth week of May. Seventeen's fans voiced their concern and complaints on social media, demanding that something be done about this discrepancy.

An SBB MTV rep spoke up on behalf of 'The Show,' making an official statement on May 31. The rep told Herald Pop, "During the preliminary vote gathering process in China, a temporary system error caused Seventeen's votes to show up as zero. But this is just a technical problem, and all the figures were actually reflected correctly. There were no system error sin the May 24 airing [of 'The Show']."

Regarding AOA's score, the rep clarified," There is no problem [with AOA's first win]. [The score] was reflected using a voting algorithm in China, and when it passes a certain figure, the highest score becomes fixed at 99.99. Because it's a system where a three-digit figure is not possible, the aggregate score can only reach 99.99. AOA achieved the topmost score every day.


Netizens were still in disbelief despite the official statement from SBS, commenting, "I think the answer for 'Music Bank' and 'The Show' is to just get rid of the ranking system altogether," "Do they think fans are stupid? lololololol I can't believe this lolololol do they even know how hard it is to maintain a steady 99.9 score lolol how are they gonna explain the votes not showing up even when I paid?" "If 'The Show' admits to [their mistake] then AOA will be completely done for, and it will just seem like they're sticking it out until the end because they're afraid of being discontinued. 'Music Bank' had no choice because they're on a major broadcasting network and because other fandoms rose up in arms but 'The Show' thinks they can just push ahead shamelessly because what happened to them was before the 'Music Bank' incident. Whatever, I'll just boycott music programs," and more.

Lol what a joke!! People are hating on seventeen and carat's for wanting answers,saying you complained after once's did...... Well carat's complained about this whole damn issue,weeks before aoa even came on the show,but the show ignored the carats and after the issue with music bank they responded,but what pisses me off you guys have to bring down seventeen,saying their MV did not get many views,well moron the views kept getting stuck and continue on getting stuck,a lot of people like seventeens songs,but they give more attention to the cute concept for a girl group then a guy group,it does not mean your group is better,cause they are higher in views and on charts,that does not mean shit or they have more talent,but for you guys to put seventeen down for wanting answers,we could not give a flying fuck about the damn trophy or title,so stop saying that shit,but here twice takes back the trophy and title and you know they complained to music bank for not winning,well their fans did,but everybody goes it's not twice fault,it's aoa or music bank,poor twice and here you all are hating on seventeen and their fans and you do not hate on twice,but you blame aoa or music bank,makes a lot if fuckin sense to me,treat the group like saints that took the trophy away and the ones who wanted answers let's treat them like shit,and for the one who said aoa and twice are 50 times better than seventeen,well I like to see your group  write,produce and choreograph all their music and dances,plus be under a company  that was close to bankrupt  and see how well the fuck you do,wait no they can't,they have to hire someone to do that for them and here you say they are better lol please

For one the two situations are slightly different. The Music Bank error was too obvious to ignore (the numbers where right there) while The Show doesn't so it's much harder to prove the error. Either way ppl/carats should fight to fix the vote counts because they are paying for them. It's not fair that 17 is the only one (correct me if I'm wrong) who get their counts stuck. Instead of questioning why other parties are not getting hate (😒) you should just keep defending your idol without putting down others (plus both AOA and Twice got hate so)

Man I feel bad for AOA. Im not a fan but I know they didn't do anything wrong. To be honest, I don't blame any fans. For SEVENTEEN and TWICE (btw it was Jessicas fans who pointed it out not ONCers). I blame the shows themselves for even making such mistakes...Doesn't look reliable or professional at all and it costs people feelings to be hurt.

CandyToo Wednesday, June 1, 2016

CARATS ARE NOT HATING ON AOA. CARATS ARE JUST TARGETING THE SHOW, THAT'S ALL. PLEASE MOVE YOUR HATE COMMENTS ABOUT BOTH SEVENTEEN AND AOA SOMEWHERE ELSE, THANKS.

CandyToo Wednesday, June 1, 2016

ToriVic Wednesday, June 1, 2016

Monkeytae Wednesday, June 1, 2016
