One of our beloved reader asked us on how does the SBS determine the Inkigayo winners. Here's how:

Inkigayo is shown every Sunday at 4.10pm. Inkigayo determines their Mutizen winner weekly through their chart called Take 7. The ranking takes into account street surveys, album sales, online/mobile music sales, numbers showing on TV and votes from mobile.

Visit Inkigayo Soompi Thread for the latest.

Take 7 participants are announced before the show and winner is revealed at the end. You can only win the Mutizen award for a maximum of 3 times.

Music Core is shown every Saturday at 3.10pm and is currently hosted by So Nyeo Shi Dae. They do have a ranking system in the past but have since scrapped it and is now purely a music show. But it’s rumored that the last singer/group who performs is considered to be the No.1 academically.

Music Bank is shown Every Friday via KBS2TV from 6.35 – 7.45pm. Music Bank determines their No.1 weekly through their K-Chart ranking system by adding and ranking through album charts (20%), digital music charts (50%), and audience rating (30%).

At the start of the show, the hosts will announce the top 3 and the winner will be revealed at the end of the show. There are currently no known limits on the number of times you can win K-Chart. Jewelry used to hold the record for six consecutive No.1 on K-Chart with One More Time in March and April.

M! Countdown is shown every Thursday via MNET from 7 – 8pm. Every week, two singers/groups are picked to vie for No.1. Winner is announced at the end of the show. How they calculate the scores are pretty vague but usually the most popular ones will win. Not verified, but it seems like you can win for a maximum of 3 times.

Difference Between Stages

Comeback Stage usually refers to the singer/group debuting their new song and they usually perform 2 songs. Goodbye Stage refers to the last time the singer/group is performing on that particular music show. Special Stages are when artistes collaborate or to celebrate a special occasion or event.

Watching It Live

Watch it live if you have a decent internet connection.

For Music Bank, watch it through KBS Able from their website and you need to register yourself (pretty straightforward) and login each time you view.

For M! Countdown, Music Core and Inkigayo, download TVAnts. Few minutes before showtime, start up TVAnts, type in MNET/KM, MBC or SBS depending on which show, then select the channel with the best quality.
