LABOUM placed 49th on the May 5 rankings of 'Music Bank'.

Last week, LABOUM beat IU and took their very first win since debut with ''Hwi Hwi''. The girls shed tears of joy, however, they were attacked with criticism following the broadcast as many netizens believed their victory was unjust. 

In response to the controversy, producers of 'Music Bank' explained that there aren't any issues with LABOUM's win

This week, IU was once again nominated for 1st place and she took the win with a total score of 7,921 for ''Palette''. hyukoh recorded 4,002 points and took 2nd place with ''Tomboy''. 

On the other hand, LABOUM had a drastic drop in rankings with ''Hwi Hwi''. The girl group went from 1st to 49th in a week.

Netizens are continuing to criticize LABOUM's ''unfair'' win and commented, "Something was definitely wrong if their ranking dropped 1st to 49th in a week..", "This is too funny", "I knew it."

I feel like I have said enough.

Lots of idiots here, Hating and accusing without facts and only basing on articles like this. Have to note that during that week, LABOUM had 20k+ sales which boosted their scores up and please do check a post regarding the reason for the sales increase, there's a post for that. LABOUM supporters know that this is the best chance for the group to take a music show win so they cooperated to boost the voting in LABOUM's favor hence their broadcast score as well. Accusing and hating others for things they don't do are only done by simpletons and idiotic people. So are you one of them?

It isn't how they won that was fishy, it was how they got that much sales. THe facts are that their album sales are more than their digital sales. Does that make sense? 70 cents for digital, but $10 for an album?

Can't you read or your comprehension are lacking? Laboum got landed an endorsement from big company S and ordered bulks of album from them as a deal for their endorsement and include it as a freebies for their products. With a one big deal the Spike of Sale occurred and since its a one deal the drops will always follow and expected, that explain why from 1-49th occur. Now the Spike and Drop already explained, now These stupid haters will find another way to hate them. First they said they are nugus (a nugus that can land an endorsement with big S company? how stupid is that!) These stupid are busted already, then they find another way that its "Impossible" for them to get a sale of 20k, then again another Slap to these stupid haters when S company ordered bulks of their album, Imposible?? NOT!! Then they tried the Fishy and the Unfair LOL! Ask SM and JYP why they releasing multiple version of one album instead of one box of album with the same price of multiple album including all of their photobook in it. Coz these big companies who started this multi-version, they want to Manipulate the Physical Sales that's the purpose of them!

i bet it's awkward for solbin who hosted the show

Exo_Leia Saturday, May 6, 2017

Sad thing is, they were gaining more attraction, (especially in the army I believe?) Sad that these girls will probably never recover

i'm not a fan of laboum, but i really pity those girls. cheating or not cheating, whatever the truth is they are in a shitty situation where they can't be happy for their win even if it was via fair play. if it was really cheating then it's obvious that a group wouldn't feel good about it, but if it was a legit win then at this point it got already trashed and ruined by the response it got. i'm only a neutral onlooker but those girls... are the only ones i'm feeling sad for.

Now now, the win was a cheat but the girls had no part in it. The horse didn't inject itself with steroids.

chiyasuho Saturday, May 6, 2017

In Italy we say: How to shoot on the Red Cross...allkpop é__é

I'm not surprised that they dropped so many places. I think it's because of all of the hate they received, that probably contributed to it. You all need to drop it. It was not the girl's fault but quite a few factors that combined to ensure their win. All you're doing is bringing the group down to the gutter with the hate that everyone's spewing towards them. Let it go people.

10thsense cmerle1 Saturday, May 6, 2017 do know they were lower (im talking lower than 100th) when they started right.. they got lucky to even be 49th place.
