    Since I've already posted threads on which artists and which songs have won the most on music shows, I decided to perform an analysis to determine who's held the record of most wins over the past 40-ish years. I've included the progression of record holders below, along with the length of time that they held the record, and which number of wins their reigns encompassed:

    Overall
    Wins 1 to 75: Cho Yong-pil (1981-02-10 to 2000-11-10, 19.75 years)
    Wins 76 to 78: H.O.T. (2000-11-11 to 2002-03-19, 1.35 years)
    Wins 79 to 87: S.E.S. (2002-03-20 to 2015-08-25, 13.43 years)
    Wins 88 to 100: Girls' Generation (2015-08-26 to 2018-12-27, 3.34 years)
    Wins 101 to 107: Exo (2018-12-28 to Present)

    Boy Groups
    Wins 1 to 10: Songolmae (1982-04-07 to 1992-07-16, 10.28 years)
    Wins 11 to 71: Seo Taiji and Boys (1992-07-17 to 1999-02-05, 6.55 years)
    Wins 72 to 73: Turbo (1999-02-06 to 2000-11-04, 1.74 years)
    Wins 74 to 78: H.O.T. (2000-11-05 to 2015-08-14, 14.77 years)
    Wins 79 to 92: Big Bang (2015-08-15 to 2017-09-21, 2.10 years)
    Wins 93 to 107: Exo (2017-09-22 to Present)

    Girl Groups
    Wins 1 to 12: S.E.S. (1998-01-17 to 1998-11-13, 0.82 years)
    Wins 13 to 18: Fin.K.L (1998-11-14 to 1999-01-15, 0.17 years)
    Wins 19 to 87: S.E.S. (1999-01-16 to 2015-08-25, 16.61 years)
    Wins 88 to 100: Girls' Generation (2015-08-26 to 2020-06-12, 4.80 years)
    Wins 101 to 106: Twice (2020-06-13 to Present)

    I was pretty surprised at how few people have actually held the record. The results seem to indicate that once an artist takes the title of most wins, it can potentially be *very* difficult to dislodge them.

    This post was actually inspired a recent thread where @sadsavely asked how long it would take for another girl group to exceed Twice's record of music show wins. To answer that question, based on the results above, and keeping in mind that they'll likely continue to rack up wins for at least the next couple years, I could possibly see it taking a decade or more.

    Depends on popularity and the amount of shows the artists promote on + amount of comebacks

    For example BP would've had an immense amount of wins now if they were to promote on the other music shows as well + if they had more than 1 cb a year lul

    I can see itzy being the group to maybe take Twice's place depending on if Twice continues after the 7 year contract, due to their regular 2 cb a year and their popularity

    Wow, isn't Cho Yong-pil the guy who has several albums over 150k? Man is a legend.

    With several music shows now having attendance requirements/win limits i think it will be harder for people to rack up alot of wins quickly (talking +10 for a single promo period), the exception i think is BTS who will hit over 100 with their next release. Think it's gonna be a race between Twice and BTS on who will beat EXOs record.

    I just thought of something regarding BP that will work in their favour. Based on what we saw with HYLT, their management seems keen to drag out one comeback to encompass two "pre-release" singles and one proper title track. This effectively gives them three comebacks a year instead of the usual one. That being said, I think the gap is probably still too big to overcome. Even if BP (3 CBs/yr @ 10 wins each) can net 12 wins per year over Twice (2 CBs/yr @ 9 wins each), it'll still take six years, and I don't think they'll last that long.

    I also agree that Itzy has a decent shot at the title, if I had to pick an existing group. However, I would bet that the group that eventually overtakes Twice's music show win record doesn't exist yet.

    150k? That man has albums with over 1 million sales each. ;)

    So as far as attendance requirements go, SBS MTV's The Show is the only one that actually requires you to perform on that particular show in order to be considered for a win. Now for an M Countdown win, they do require that you be promoting on music shows the week of the win, but it could be on shows other than M Countdown.

    But yes, I do agree that BTS (with 90 wins) has a good, though not guaranteed chance of beating Exo's 107 wins their next comeback. This of course assumes that they'll be coming back before Twice.

    Indeed! Actually, now that I look at it, SM groups in general have been well represented among record holders.
