Police to investigate KBS2 giving Lim Young Woong '0' broadcast points on 'Music Bank'

AKP STAFF

Police will be investigating KBS2 giving Lim Young Woong '0' broadcast points on 'Music Bank'. 

On May 28th, police responded to a petition filed through the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission that urged to investigate the recent controversy surrounding KBS2's 'Music Bank's 1st place scoring metrics from the May 13th episode. 

According to the police response, the police have assigned an officer to verify whether there have been any crimes regarding the controversy.

Previously on May 13th, KBS2's 'Music Bank' faced heavy backlash after the program snubbed Lim Young Woong although he sold over 1 million physical albums in his first-week sales and ranked #1 on Gaon chart's weekly digital streaming chart because he earned 0 points for the "Broadcast appearance score".  

KBS explained Lim Young Woong's latest title track "If We Ever Meet Again" received 0 KBS radio plays during the scoring period from May 2 through May 8 but this claim was refuted by 'Dispatch', further fueling the score rigging controversy. 

KBS then explained again that they only count 7 KBS Cool FM programs for the points and Lim Young Woong's song was not played on those 7 programs. 

Stay tuned for updates.

what’s a bit suspicious to me is that ever since this controversy + the growing controversy of garams bullying, fearless has been rising the charts. if anything, with all this bad press you would think it would lower
