Netizens have mixed feelings about TikTok being included in the 'Music Bank' scoring

AKP STAFF

There has been another fervent discussion that was started in a popular Korean online community

On March 2, one netizen shared in this online community that KBS's music program 'Music Bank' will be updating its music scoring system to include TikTok music plays in their scoring. The netizen also shared the equation in which the scoring will be calculated and explained that 5% of the social media score will include TikTok as well.

According to the equation, 'Music Bank' K-Chart will be based on 60% digital streaming, 20% number of broadcasts, 10% viewer preference, 5% physical album sales, and 5% social media. Here, the 5% social media will include the number of views from YouTube and TikTok.

Korean netizens joined the online community where this new piece of information was shared and showed various reactions to it. However, many of the Korean netizens were not happy about this new scoring standard and expressed their dissatisfaction.

Netizens commented, "Why are they adding TikTok?" "Are they crazy?" "I don't even use TikTok," "I think this is because KBS and the Chinese broadcast station CCTV are partnering up. That's what I heard," "Are they crazy?" "What the heck?" "Lols, now only the dance genres are going to get number 1," "TikTok?" "Did they get paid from China? lol," and "I know a lot of K-pop songs get used in TikTok so I guess it's good?" 

What do you think about this?
